10.2: Time

| feature of the week

If you’re reading this, chances are that time represented numerically (like “10:00”) looks normal to you. It’s easy to think that this is a global standard, but in fact many countries represent time differently. Some use a period instead of a colon, others use leading zeroes (“9:41” is correct in many places but “09:41” is right in others), and there are 12-hour and 24-hour styles.

In forScore 10.2, we changed how time and duration are represented in most cases. Now, instead of writing it out ourselves like we had previously, we let iOS turn these numbers into locale-friendly representations that are best suited to you based on your iPad’s language and location settings.

Many people won’t even notice this change, but we like to sweat the details and we think this is an easy way to make forScore feel more refined and thoughtful to those affected by it.
