    Anyone seen an app that would use the wifi to go out and grab the exact time and set the system clock? My wifi ipad is off by about 4 secs a day. Not horrible but i would expect better time. I have seen some clock apps but it appears they do not set the system clock. I am surprised apple did not design that in, i wonder if the new os will address that?

    While there are many apps that access the world time standard, none of them will actually set the internal clock on the iPad.

    In control panel, set time n date - is it 'auto' or 'set time'?
    I changed to 'auto' and the difference of 20 seconds disappeared
    Difference between a clock app and system time
    But no, unaware of any system clock fix app

    Mine is wifi so i dont have the auto. Seems like a miss by apple not to have some way to go out and get the exact time.
