I'm confused. Richmond is the capital of Virginia, and yet it isn't an option to choose on the World clock? Am I missing something there? Why would you want to know the time AND temperature of a city that no one you know lives in? If it's just to keep track of time zones, then why include temperatures?


I have friends and family around the world, and it would be convient to use the World Clock App to set up everyone by their city - not the major city in their time zone. Using NYC for family in Richmond may give me the time, but it doesn't really help with the weather if I know I'm headed that way in the next 24 hours.


Is there a fix for this? Or is this just one of those quirks to keep people from doing things like manually setting their location in Date & Time so that Location Services has to be used?

    Yes, this is very strange.  Cincinnati, Ohio is not in the list, but Cleveland and Columbus are in the list.  That doesn't make any sense.  How can you leave off a town that is so large that it has a professional baseball team and even an NFL team?  This is a huge oversight.

    Out son lives in South Carolina and the closest we get is Charlotte North Carolina. There are no locations for South Carolina. They couldn't include at least the capital city for each state?

    The problem is that the new clock app also has weather built in.  For example, the closest city to me is Columbus, Ohio and it is great to have the time.  However, why do I care what the weather is in Columbus when I live in Cincinnati?  The iPhone weather app supports all cities.  Why wouldn't the clock also support all cities?

    I have my clock set to Columbus also and my weather app set to Toledo. It should not be too hard to add the major cities in the states and provinces if it is to be a 'world' clock.
