apps that convert time zones?

Forum
iOS and iPadOS

Hi, all!

Can anyone recommend a free app that converts time zones?

I have meetings with 2 different organizations. As a result, I deal with 3 time zones: Central time, Pacific time, and my time zone which is Eastern time. So, what I need is an app that can convert any time from those time zones into Eastern time. For example, converting 2 PM PT. into Eastern time.

I have tried asking Siri, and have not had any success. While I normally ask Amazon, but, I would like to have a backup in the form of an app.

I've tried GlobeConvert, but, I've found that while it has the option, it only seems to want to convert currencies. I hit the button for time zones or any other convertion option on there, and it won't select it. Any help and recommendations are appreciated. Thank you all in advance!

First of all, if you simply ask Siri what time it is in a particular place, London England, Paris France, Los Angeles etc. it works fine.
Also, launch the Clock app you already have on your iOS device and simply add places to the World Clock tab. I have three cities listed on mine, because I have guitar students who live there.

I I do have cities listed, and that does help me with that to a degree.
I've asked Siri what time it is in a place and she's fine with that. What I can't get her to do, is convert a time from PT. to ET. For example, I asked one time:
"Hey Siri, convert 2 PM picific time to Eastern time" and she gave me the current time for my area. In fact, I just did it, and she said "it's 11:30 AM.

I do use the world clock and that does help to a degree. Sometimes though, I need to fill out registration forms which, I have to do for one organization in particular. So, I need to know in advance what time it will be in ET. because, a family member needs the internet at a certain time for his work, so, I know by what time it will be in ET. whether I need a to use my landline to call in, or Teams, which is the meeting platform that this organization uses. Also, I need to know whether it will conflict with any other meeting I have.

I'm sorry if I didn't explain myself thoroughly. I appreciate both of your suggestions though.

for example, ask Siri what the time and window rock Arizona is. Siri will give you mountain time. Fortunately, it knows that Arizona doesn't switch times but it's still incorrect. Navajo time is 1/2 hour off from standard mountain time. The same is true in places like Indiana. There are two time zones in Indiana. However, there's one part of Indiana that doesn't switch from standard eastern time to stay Eastern daylight Time. likewise, there are countless I don't switch from central standard time to Central daylight Time. The clock doesn't help with any of this much either.
however, if they don't live in one of these exceptions, it's easy to convert. Central time is one hour earlier than Eastern. Mountain time is two hours earlier than Eastern. And Pacific time is three hours earlier than eastern time.

I have the gmt widget on my phone and some cities, I know how to convert in my head at least for the states that have the time zones.

I think the website in my subject line could also be helpful, although I haven't been on there much. It seems to work pretty well with VoiceOver though. I have also used the World Clock and have found it quite nice.
