Some days ago I've reviewed MadBeetle's WorldTime 2 and before Code City CityTime, now the third similar but even enhanced application is close to be released: Fizz Software's mcTraveller which includes even more features then just a world clock but weather forecasts and and currency conversion as well, which is updated GPRS.

Whether you travel alone or with others, make room for one more. mcTraveller is the perfect traveling companion and now runs on your Microsoft Smartphone.

mcTraveller has full multilingual support for English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. With mcTraveller you will always know the time in any of over 230 cities, with another 50,000 available via an internet connection from your device e.g. GPRS. For any of these cities you can get a detailed weather forecast, so you will always know what to pack.

To make sure you get to where you need to be, you can set alarms for any of your four favorite cities and organize your tasks and itinerary so you are always organized. Once you reach your destination, the handy currency conversion tool means you will always know how much you are spending and of course, everything is customizable, so you can have a choice of impressive clock faces and even choose the color of your clocks hands. All this and much more.


With mcTraveller you can :

  • Track the time in up to 4 major cities from around the world.
  • Perform an internet city lookup helping you add to the default database of over 200 world cities. The lookup supports over 26,000 US cities and 32,000 international cities.
  • Set alarms in your time zone or any time zone for any city - now with a snooze feature.
  • Understand who's in daylight and who's in darkness with mcTraveller's real-time, world daylight map.
  • Get weather forecasts for today, 48 hours or 5 days ahead, for any city in mcTraveller's database.
  • See international dial codes.
  • See what cities respect daylight savings time.
  • Make schedules and trip itineraries.
  • Do all your currency conversions - now with internet update.
  • Configure your interface.
  • Sync your device time with an internet atomic clock.

The free 14 day pre-release version is available for download now, later when released mcTraveller for Smartphone will be US$ 9.99 for a limited special offer.
I will give mcTraveller a detailed review as soon as it is released in the final version.

Cheers ~ Arne

Where can I get the Euro >British Pound conversion rate shown in the screen shot! ;-) Should be .688 not ,688

Numbers and dates are localized based on the regional settings of the device. e.g. Numbers for the US/UK will be 1.23, and 1,23 in France.
