NSScreencast: Bite-sized Screencasts for iOS Development


This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://nsscreencast.com/episodes/494-localization-dates-and-times

One question that sometimes comes up is regarding time zones. This is separate to localization, but related to the topic of dates and times. Typically you want times displayed in the user’s local time zone with some exceptions.

If the time is for a time at a certain place, you may want to see the time in the place’s local time. For instance, a show starting at 6pm at a music venue in Los Angeles should probably be displayed in Pacific Time, regardless of where the user is.
