MarsClock is designed to aid engineers, astronomers, Gods of War, Hrossa, and specifically mission controllers for the upcoming NASA MER and ESA Beagle-II missions to Mars. It converts to and from Earth time (Local and UTC) and Mars time (Local Mean Solar Time and Local True Solar Time) for any location.

Release Notes: The lander locations were updated to post-landing locations. The program now works with PalmOS 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2. The background images were improved for black and white devices. The sub-earth location code has been added, but is not implemented or visible to the end user yet.
Release Notes: UTS offset now allows for 1/2 timezone. Various minor bug fixes were made for PalmOS versions less than or equal to 3.2.
Release Notes: This version fixes the "now" mode so that the Palm can auto-off (and it no longer drains battery). Also, times for Viking, Sojourner, and Beagle II were 12 hours ahead. This has been fixed. MER was/is still believed to be accurate with the rover clock.
Release Notes: Day/night shading has been added. Alarms are now handled by DateBook. The NOW button runs the program in real-time mode. There are several minor feature additions and bugfixes.
Release Notes: Images now work on grayscale devices. The background can now be selected by the user. sol:hh:mm was added to the main form. The version and build information are now displayed on screen. E/W longitude preferences were added. The last time is now restored, instead of defaulting to the current time.
