Best Windows 8 Apps
19 April 2013
This is a neat app that allows you to see when it is night or day in various cities, and provides a lot of cool information for each city you pin as a favorite (such as the sunset and sunrise time). However, the most useful feature is missing: live tile updates of the time. Without it you have to manually open the app to see the world clocks you've saved.

It's much more than a global clock! The app combines a beautiful map display that shows the location of the moon and sun, as well as which part of the earth is sunlit.
Update to my review. The developer already updated the app to allow for the "snap" feature to be active. Very nice touch!

The initial app of the Astro Clock was great, with many cities - except my little one - but I wrote to the people who make the app - so nice, and right away I got an email back.
The new update rocks! Yes, my settings were reset - all two of them, no big deal - but there are so many more bells and whistles to play with, in addition to the great ones from before. I really like the timelapse and the different map settings. Great progress, I don't know what else can be done to improve Astro Clock!
I was limited in the cities it would find and input. Otherwise it is very nice and give you a perspective on the world.
AstroTepus was responsive and put in my cities of interest when the program was updated. Thank you.

A good surface and cool function. Have a try.

I can't get my location. The time was wrong when I downloaded it & it took me a long time to figure out how to set the clock manually. Then I wasn't sure if the clocks around the world were right after setting it right in my time zone. Too confusing for me. I'll look for something else

Clock with brain...

Unfortunately when downloaded, the time displayed was 6 hours behind the actual time! Have not been able to adjust. Any suggestions most welcome. Would be great if usable

I wish it was easier to navigate & see the time zones, but other than that it's a really nice app.

it works great, but I want it to do everything I'm used to - zoom in, add a clock/travel alarm etc...
Overall, a very nice app, visually appealing, cool features. That said, the weather overlay is not working at all. Will not load and then self-aborts.

2 stars for a cool concept but the clock was never at the correct time for my location. Grrr.

I love the APP but it's not easy 2 navigate like I would like if I could suggest anything to the Developers of this APP it would be 2 make it so I can change the Time Zone's easier like at the Top it shows 2 Places and the Times like Tokyo & San Francisco Time Zones I wish it was easier 2 change those 2 what time Zone I want along with 2 others so I Could do 4 ex. EST, China, Somewhere in Russia, & Africa if I wanted too. I also click Icon bottom right & it makes time & date change cant stop it.
