Arshi’s final project – WIP

Global Time Tracker

My family and friends live all over the world. From Mauritius, to the UK, and Australia. That’s a lot of countries with a lot of different time zones. Sometimes I’ll try to call or message my friends back in Australia and wonder why they never pick up. The time difference does not make it easy. The world globe light will help me with just a click to know what time it is in another country so I can plan when to call or message them

Use Case Scenario:

Calling my family and friends is very important to me because I live so far away from them. I have to set up so many different time zones on my clock app on my phone just so I can track what time it is in their country.
