This is convenient for all those companies whose partners are not only in Germany, but in all parts of the world. The appointment management of different time zones brings order into the planning.

The revelevant time zones are set at the first start. The main view of the app then shows the list of the current times of the respective zones and displays the appointments to match the local time.

The connection to the Apple Watch and a message center widget are the developers’ bonuses. Combining calendars and time zones in one program: a clever idea that was also implemented optically in CalZones very well. It’s a pity that there is no Android version yet.

The functionality is explained quickly: If you are in trouble, you can simply click on a button in the application. A helper in the vicinity is alerted, so that the time until the arrival of the rescue service is shortened. In addition, the emergency call is dialed.
