The theories of special and general relativity postulate that events are not simultaneous for different observers, and that different observer's times tick at different rates depending on relative velocity and the magnitude of the gravitational field they are in. This project seeks to design a program for use with smartphones that will calculate this change in time, in real time, and keep track of the discrepancies in time experienced between the observer and a stationary point on the surface of the earth.
