The Clocks app review: your go-to alarm and world clock



There is no reason that waking up on time has to be an issue when you have a reliable and easy-to-use alarm clock. This is where The Clocks app excels. It offers a simple-yet-stylish alarm clock that allows you to set up to five alarms. Not only that, but the app also supports world clocks so you will be able to check the time in over 500 locations around the world. This app is the perfect traveler’s companion or just a handy bedside tool.

Simple and Sleek

When the word "simple" is used to describe an app, often people think of it as a negative thing but this isn't always the case. The design is sleek, clean, and uncluttered so you can easily and clearly view your clock. There are even a few clock types you can choose from which are analog, digital, and flip. If you want to customize your clock you can do so using the detailing tool.

As soon as you launch the app you are taken to a beautiful full screen clock. To have your options appear just tap on the screen. I like that these options all remain tucked away and out of view so as not to disturb the simplicity of the screen.


More than Basic Options

Despite its simplistic design you are actually given quite a few options in this app. You can set up to five alarms at once, use your own music as the alarm sound, and there is a snooze feature. You can adjust the scale, brightness, and position on the screen to customize the clock further.

There are world clocks for more than 500 locations. You will be able to see the times of up to six stored places. As an added bonus the app even acts as a flashlight when you give your device a shake.

I think it's important to mention that this app is ad-free, which is rare in a free app. This is what helps keep it so beautiful and sleek-looking. I do find some of the options hard to find and you will likely have to tap on quite a few buttons until you find what you're looking for. I know the developer is trying to keep things as minimalist as possible but this does create a bit of a learning curve for the user.
