Using this Windows 8 Timer app
On the main landing page of the app, you would only be shown the current Time and Date .
Your local Time
Here, an analog clock would be displayed, in black background, which will show you the time using the hour, minute, and second hands. In addition to this, the digital time would be shown on the bottom right corner of the app’s interface. On the bottom left side, this free timer app, will also show you the current date and day.
For seeing the world time, you just have to use the arrow that is available on the right side of the app’s main landing page. The page that shows the world time, would be having green background. The world clock shown here will mainly consist of an analog clock, showing your local time. The analog clock will be shown in the mid part of the interface. Your own local digital time would be shown at the centre of the clock (just for the ease of comparing time from different places of the world). On both sides of this analog clock, the time from different locations around the world would be shown.
The app will provide you time from London, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Moscow, Tokyo, Beijing, and Sydney.
If you click on the arrow that is available on the right side of the world clock, you would be able to get to the stop watch, which you can use to measure the time that has been taken during a particular operation.
The stopwatch of the app can be utilized for the events where there is a need to check the time passed or taken for any particular event.
Minimized view of the app
You can also use the minimized view of the app, so as to switch between the options easily. For that, you can use the dash (like minimize in case of Windows) that appears at lower right corner of any page. The option will minimize all three options to a single screen from where we can access any one by just a single click on it.
