A simple iPhone, Apple Watch and iPad app to see Local and Zulu time (GMT) or multiple time zones in a single glance. Useful for pilots in getting weather briefings and filing flight plans, or Ham radio operators to do timezone conversions. No more worrying about getting the timezone offset correct or Daylight Savings Time conversions. Easily convert from different time zones, including times in the future or past.
On the iPhone:
- The Zulu Time page gives a quick view of both Zulu and Local times
- The Offset Time page allows you to see Zulu and local time either in the future or past by entering an offset via the Offset button. Tapping either Zulu or Local times will allow you to enter a time in the future or past, synchronizing both Local and Zulu times with that offset. The offset only applies to this view (except on the iPad the offset applies to everything on the page)
- The Multiple Zones page allows you to add as many time zones as you wish in a scrolling view. Clicking on any Time Zone will allow you to change it.
All information is combined on one screen. You have user customizable time zones on the right hand side. On the left, you have Zulu and Local time and one customizable time zone. The offset to see future or past time can be done via the Offset button or tapping any of either the Zulu, Local or Custom time buttons on the left.
On the Watch:
Complications available in all watch faces making for glanceable ZuluTime and access to the app, which gives offset able time computation.
Zulu Time Positive Reviews
IWatchI like the app and use it when flying. It would be great if the compilation would show the actual Zulu hour without having to tap on the app on my iWatch to see the actual Zulu time. It always shows “22Z”. Not a big deal, but just one more step when things get busy in the cockpit. It came in super handy for a flight recently though when ATC asked for a position report when I wasn’t in a radar environment. I tapped on the compilation and gave them position info with Zulu times. Also great for confirming TAF’s, METAR’s and ATIS info that are all done in Zulu time..Version: 3.4.4
Needs complications!This app is great, except it doesn’t have the one thing I needed and purchased it for: complications! See, Apple already lets you see UTC time and even includes it as a complication. But in order to see UTC or “Zulu” time in 24 hour time mode, you have to switch the entire clock to 24 hour mode. What I need to do is be able to see local time in 12 hour mode but Zulu time in 24 hour mode as a complication on the same watch face! It’s so frustrating that neither Apple includes a way to do this, and developers haven’t come up with UTC time app that has complications! And if they did, I would imagine they would inadvertently make it so that the 12/24 hour system setting dictates whether the complication displays in 12 hour or 24 hour mode, which would put me back at square one. Please make a complication for this app, and leave the time in 24 hour mode or make it an adjustable setting and not based on the system clock. Thank you!.Version: 3.2
Needs Always On SettingSomewhat nice app. I use it for logging ham radio contacts and need to glance at it often. It needs to be always on when I’m operating. I imagine other users may need to use it in a way where it needs to be always on. It’s a real pain in the neck to always have to go into the general settings of your mobile device to change the Lock Screen to “never” when starting the app, then change it back when finished using it. I have an alarm clock app that has such a setting and can stay on all night. It should be quite easy to add a setting or option for this in the app. Otherwise, this would be a five star app..Version: 3.5
Widget Doesn’t UpdateThe app is great, almost. The widget does not update the local time. When pressed to open the app, the local time displays correctly, but not on the Home Screen via the widget itself.
Derek thanks for reaching out but the links to contact you directly are broken (Not Found message). On the widget the local time remains in the previous time zone I was in. It doesn’t update if I just switch in and out of Airplane Mode. If I restart my phone the local time will update. Again, even if the widget doesn’t update, if I open the app the local time is correct. This is only an issue with the local time. Zulu time is correct. I’m running Version 3.5 on iPhone 8 iOS 14.2. Hope this helps..Version: 3.5
SwappedHi love to app very useful. Only complaint is on the Apple Watch you swapped the placement of ZuluTime. On my iPhone it displays Zulu above local time in dashboard it’s the same but when I open the app on Apple Watch it’s local time on top and Zulu below after the update. Please update so it’s Zulu above local time like it was and matches the iPhone app. Please.
*update: Thank you Derek for listening to your customers and updating and making fixes to your app in a timely manner. Love your app very useful..Version: 3.5.2
Does not show minutes on watch complicationThe phone app works fine, and the watch complication shows the current hour in Zulu time. However, it does not show minutes which makes the watch complication too imprecise for things like aviation.
Edit: this is due to limitations in the watchOS API..Version: 3.4.2
Does what it says, but needs complicationFor 99 cents the app is ok. Would be worth more and reviewed higher if it could be used as a complication rather than just an app and agree Zulu should be in 24 hour format. Developer mentioned this is difficult to do and keep clock accurate but I rarely need a real time count of the seconds. Make the complication by creating your own time digits, drop the seconds so update once a minute, and options for 12/24 format on local and/or Zulu.Version: 3.2
IWatch Complication Still Shows Hours OnlyAn older review noted that the iWatch complication show only 22Z (for example) instead of full hours and minutes (like 2215Z, for example). The developer response indicated that this was fixed, which is why I purchased the app. I may be doing something wrong, but I can not get the iWatch complication to show more than just hours in Zulu time..Version: 3.5.3
Complication doesn’t show time all the time..?I love the app and using the complication on my iwatch but part of the day It does not show the time. I think it has to do with the font. I hope you can fix it. it seems to involve the zero and two. it seems to show all the times that begin with a one.
Thanks for looking into it..Version: 3.5.1
Awesome App!Now I can convert time zones to Zulu time in a snap. It has a very nice and intuitive interface. The only thing I wish it had was another button at the bottom that showed you a US map with time zone divisions to show which time zone each state is in..Version: 3.2
Widget on watch face doesn’t updateI can’t ever get the small widget on the infograph modular watch face to show the right time. For example it says 17Z now but when I tap it, it shows the correct Zulu time of 20:13. This is an Apple Watch 4 and an iPhone 11 Pro Max running iOS 13.3. Watch os is 6.1.1.
Support page has no “submit” or send button or I’d have sent this information privately rather than through a review..Version: 3.4.2
5 Stars ! Best of its kind ! Great Interface !ZuluTime is fully customizable and automatically syncs and displays the correct time in ZULU according to location chosen. In addition, you may choose the arrangement of multiple ZULU TIME clocks and manually calibrate the UTC of that location..Version: 3.5
Simple and to the point!Very simple and straightforward.. the way I like it!! This may be a silly question and excuse my newness to the Apple Watch, but can I set your app as one of my watch faces or do I have to launch the app every time from my watch?.Version: 3.4
Helps pilotsAs a trainee student pilot myself I always struggle with reading a clock like the normal ones I’m young guys, but this one takes the work for you and gives it to you effortless. Worth every 99 pennies.Version: 3.5.3
Difficult to set with Daylight Saving TimeDownloaded it, tried to set the offset, put in the -4 hours I needed and app kept defaulting to -5 hours. Probably an excellent app when DST is not in place..Version: 3.5.3
Excellent but..,,I like everything about this app but I wish it would allow me to set an alarm. That would be quite handy!.Version: 3.5
Apple Watch ComplicationsThis app is extremely useful for me. However, what would improve its experience for me would be the addition of complications for the Apple Watch so that the offset time you set in the app can be displayed on the watch face. Other than that, it’s great!.Version: 3.2
Valuable toolI’m an Airline Pilot. All aviation weather and many other related reports are based on Zulu time. Using this app versus trying to convert local to Zulu manually is a great time saver for me..Version: 3.5.3
This is a great appIt does what I need to simplify time markers with the added bonus of no data collection! Well worth .99 cents.Version: 3.5.3

PerfectGot this for the widget feature so I can easily glance at Zulu time while in the cockpit. Works great - well worth the few pennies!.Version: 3.5.2
Perfect for PilotsAn easy way to reference Zulu while planning a flight. Anything that reduces my work load is good..Version: 3.4.5
Loss of timeHaving problems on my Apple Watch. Every two or three day Z time looses its time and gradually reverts to local time? I have to reset Z time each time thru the iPhone app to get Z time back on my watch. Is this a common problem?
Tried to contact support wrote the above and there is no way to send comment?
Please fix loss of time on Apple Watch. It’s been several months now since you said you would look into it..Version: 3.4.4

Not displaying on watch face. Working now.App works as advertised..Version: 3.4.2
Great appGreat app.
Improvements: Was wondering if you could make an actual clock when setting the Zulu time for a later time. That’ll look super nice. Also I preferred my pre iOS 14 widget and how simple and small it looked. You could maybe give the options between choosing either or make the black rounded square the same size how they were before this update. Thanks!!!.Version: 3.5
Simple yet useful.I’m a pilot and also a sailor. This is exactly what I was looking for. No more fussing around while filling a flight plan or when looking up metars. A must have for guys like me..Version: 3.2
Simple and EffectiveI am a general aviation pilot and this simple app is very powerful as it helps me with flight planning when reading METARs and TAFs on the ground. Also when flying IFR and making my radio calls it makes calling out Zulu time (while seeing and being aware the relative local time) error free and simple..Version: 2.5.6
Time is relativeAs an overseas pilot, I find this app extremely useful. It's got easy to read digits and all kinds of options for time zone selection - you can't go wrong getting this app..Version: 2.4.2
Nice app! Great looking interface.Adding second time zone a little awkward with the listing by geo zones. But UI looks great and otherwise very easy to setup..Version: 2.0
