New app helps kids master the analog clock


In our world of digital displays, how do you teach children to tell time on a traditional analog clock? Now there's an app for that.

Clockwise delivers a series of easy exercises that will help young minds understand the concept of time and how a clock with hands and numbers works.

The app displays a time on an analog clock face and asks users to enter the numbers on a digital display. A correct answer is rewarded with a "Well done!" Score 25 or more correct answers in a row and you're a master clock reader.

The app was created by Piotr Nowacki, developer of a series of puzzle and activity apps for children. Clockwise is free at the Apple App Store in versions for the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
