Satellite Time Reader uses the GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver in your device to get exact real time information directly from the satellites. It is similar to a radio controlled clock – allowing simple and fast offline checking of your device clock: No network access necessary! And it is so easy to use: Just open the app, wait for the GPS receiver to sync to the satellites and view perfect UTC/GMT time and date info (related to the time zone selected in the time settings of your device). You can then fix the system time manually if necessary.

This app uses advanced algorithms allowing much quicker access to the time data provided by the GPS circuit. What is incredible is that it can often show correct time and date while other apps still report 0 satellites in view! It has an automatic detection of the best available time and date raw info and uses dimmed text color as notification (warning) about unsettled outputs. Satellite Time Reader has a beautiful, retro-style user interface and will run on nearly any Google mobile/smart phone. Take it with you during you next holiday or while you are on a (sports) trip somewhere outdoors - you will love it!

Multilanguage support: English, German

This is the FREE version. The FULL version offers the following additional features and settings:
a) No advertising banner!
b) No permissions for internet access required!
c) Setting the system time (transferring the GPS based local time to your system time). THIS FEATURE ONLY WORKS ON SOME DEVICES WITH ROOT ACCESS AND MIGHT NOT WORK ON YOUR DEVICE! This is a limitation of the Android operating system – there is absolutely NO app on the market which can set the system time of a non-rooted device! And: It is not possible to synchronize system time and GPS based local time perfectly. There will always be some deviation (usually less than a second).
d) Keep screen on feature (avoid sleep mode while the app is active). Be aware that the GPS receiver draws a LOT of energy from your batteries!
e) Additional color schemes (white on blue, white on dark grey) - and the standard LCD scheme

Some hints:
1.) If the GPS time shows a wrong time, takes very long to receive, stops or does not appear at all, the GPS reception is not sufficient. This is not an issue related to the app!

2.) Using the GPS receiver consumes a lot of energy from your battery! It is not recommended to keep the app open for a longer time while it is on battery power only!

3.) If the local time is off by more than half an hour to the real local time then you have selected a wrong time zone in your device. Please correct the time zone FIRST and then the system / device time.

4.) Depending on your GPS hardware (!) this app offers instant (or at least ultra-quick) time info – much faster than traditional GPS monitor / tracking apps or maps based location / navigation apps! Note that this feature is known to work on Samsung Nexus S but cannot be guaranteed to work on your device. Reporting the status (fast or slow) on your device is highly appreciated (please send an email).

5.) You can tap on one of the three sections on your screen to get a short help about what is displayed in this section.

6.) Give it a try and test the free / lite version of this app. If you are satisfied after evaluation please consider buying the full / pro version (see details below).

Works fast and fine on samsung s4 Font a little oversize - partially obscured but readable

Jonathan Braeckel

Quick and easy. Works great font is readable. Time is accurate what more can you ask for?

Thomas Wetmore

Font is too large Font size is much too large on Nexus 5, so the time cannot be seen. It works fine on Nexus 7 (2013).

Gualberto Morales

Stellite Time Reader Its has the fastest time for delivering the information I've ever seen!

Paul Graves

Works as promised Shows system time right away and gps time when it gets a lock. Ads are unobtrusive.

Jan Willem Poelen

Simple but effective app I use it quite often to check my watch. .

Miguel N

Just fix one thing Appears to work but the font is so large it does not fit in the dedicated boxes.

Nic Lyons

Font issues on Nexus 5 Can't see the time because the am/pm indicator fully occupies the display. Apparently the app is no longer being maintained - a shame.

Patrick Byrne

Quick & Accurate Time Check Works just fine on my Samsung GT-i9082. However have seen it not display correctly on a friend's phone and couldn't figure out how to adjust font size.

Behrang Tiznobik

Good app. Thanks, very fast response app. for my Samsung Galaxy tab 2.7.0 Please add difference/off time indicator on screen and add a bit notation/caution about it's accuracy.

Jeff Tiberend

Fonts are too big This app looks promising. But, the fonts are too big.

John Eric Horter

Fails Always says waiting for data and shows question marks for the time, even when other apps can read gps.

Tommy de Blanken

For the exact time... This app is the best for local & Sattile time!

Joel Swan

Display problem The ad at the bottom pushes the time displays up so you cannot see them. Makes it pretty much useless.

Edmond Siu

Layout is unable on nexus 4 I can only see AM or PM on my phone

Ed Ermler

Great application Almost as accurate as my Symmetricom time server costing thousands of dollars more than the app and phone combined. I would like to see a time signal tone added and possibly a tenth of a second display, but it is good just the way it is. NTP pool member and self proclaimed time nut.

Gary Bonazzo

Can't read display on Moto X

Robert Devereaux

Good app, does what it says.

Dennis Hurst

Works Great on Galaxy Tab2 Shows GPS time, UTC and system time. Great work in progress. If it would sync system time I'd go 5 stars

J Ma

Kickass guys!!! Great job One of my favorite widgets on my Experia Z, it's flawless!!?!!

nou wai

David Paquette

Need a time signal for my tablet


I want to remove add.

Sharib Razi

Font too big Font on samsung GT N7000 is too big.

Benjamin Dumez

Very cool Does what it says and gives you a super accurate clock

A Google User

G8 app Does well

Harry Whitecross

Satellite Time Reader Dismal failure full of ads and, as many have said, too big for a 5"" screen.

Jim Wicklund

Very cool Should be standard I job.

SheemOn Dallas

Very Professional It is simple, reliable and simply works.

Arthur Mitchell

Superb for sailing Great app for the race committee boat.

A Rgs


Ashok Kumar

One of the best apps

Ken Dickinson

Fonts are to big to read. Useless.

Martin G

Good job Works well

Пользователь Google

Good app! Please, create two things: 1. "Sync my device" button; 2. Local / GPS time difference field. Thanks a lot! Yuriy. Russia.

Пользователь Google

Works fine,quick and correct,providing data quicker,than resembling applications.Periodic signal losses,when incorrect time,date are shown,on locations which it is used to(indoors).Common solution is getting a gps fix,that's rather inconvenient,because of then disappearing app's purpose.Thinking of it as sys.behaviour,compared to WM(old,notGSMdev),where incorrect data fetching,on same location,never took place.Main problem:overlapped text-(Central Eur-an summer time),under local and sys.time sections.Add in/sufficient RSSI(NMEA Mon;without fix).

Ivan Serebryakov

The best Satellite clock app on market!!! It's very easy to check and update system time in device with it. Love it!

Stefan Rueger

Font I am amazed that all the reports on the way too big font that makes time illegible on some devices has not made it through to the developers. Cannot use it on my Motorola phone.

Kyle Daub

Font way too big! Configure a way to change the size, can hardly read it, otherwise it's a useful app!

Prince Butler

Powerful tool with lots of features

francis duodu

Very good app

Bob Stocker

DOES THE JOB. Best of the bunch!

Geoff White

Works fine No frills, functional and accurate. Works well on my tablet.

Modesto Guadalupe

Satellite time reader (free) It used to work with lollipop real fine. After marshmallow, is unreadable.Try setting font as tiny and at least you can read.

Bangas Droid

Font size Hey devs, do you read these comments? The font size is way to big and it's very hard to read. This is very easy to fix.

A Google User

Works well, but unreadable Works well. Time reception sometimes even works in a tunnel! Problem is however that the fonts are way too large and don't fit on the screen.
