Does the time change creep up on you, year after year? A useful new utility app, aptly named Summertime and developed by Oliver Drobnik, offers a simple, one-page app with a countdown to the next change, your time zone, and an option to send an email reminder to yourself. Whether you are a frequent traveler, or you just need to know when to get that extra hour of sleep, Summertime has it all.
This app itself is uniquely simple. Summertime only has one page – and all of the required info can be found there. There are no bells and whistles here, no fancy graphics or features – Summertime offers info on Daylight Savings Time (DST), and that’s about it.
One of the really useful features of Summertime is the ability to send yourself (or someone else) a reminder email of DST. All it takes is just one tap, and you’re ready to send the already written email. The email is a great way to alert yourself of the upcoming time change, or to notify your relatives of it. Whether you’re looking to “spring” forward or “fall” back, Summertime can help you to remember the need to change your clocks and plan ahead.
Summertime is a great utility for that time of the year – but the time change doesn’t come around all that often, so most of the time this app will just be sitting idly on your iPhone. For $0.99, Summertime may or may not be a good buy, depending on your upcoming DST circumstances. Luckily, developer Oliver Drobnik did a great job building his app; there are no bugs, crashes, or problems with his work. So, if you are looking for a simple, easy-to-use Daylight Savings Time app, you know how to find it. Remember to set your clocks!
Summertime requires iPhone OS 2.0 or later and is compatible with the iPhone and iPod Touch.
