Ubuntu Touch should have a set of time and date picker controls.

Use cases

  • Setting the device time and date in System Settings.

  • (not for the initial release) Adding someone’s birthday to the address book, with or without a year.
  • Fine-tuning the time and date of a Calendar event.
  • The Clock app currently uses its own clock hands for setting a timer or countdown value.
