    macrumors newbie

    It is on objective c soma Date and time format? Then i'm using:

    NSDateFormatter *dateFormatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
    [dateFormatter setDateFormat:@"yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss"];
    NSDate *date1 = [dateFormatter dateFromString:@"2011-02-16 12:00:00"];
    date1 becomes = 2011-02-16 10:00:00 GMT. So i can not use NSDate for date and time?

    How have you ascertained that the date has become 2011-02-16 10:00:00 GMT? What timezone are you in? As you did not specify the timezone when you created the date from the string the date will have been converted from your phones set timezone. If the timezone of the phone is currently GMT+2 then the two dates are actually the same.

    Try auto date and time.
