I haven't seen anyone else comment, so I wanted to see if I'm the only one with Ariel screensavers that don't quite match the time of day. Sometimes they do, but I've had some showing that it is an hour or two before sunset at 9 pm.

It's a little weird to see sunlight at night in screensavers that are touted as matching the time of day.

I set up time to auto in settings and it gave me New York time zone which is good enough even though I live in Florida.

I'm not sure what's up with this. I've been seeing the New York bridge one all yesterday afternoon and it's always nighttime. So, is each one supposed to have different versions for all day, or do you get different screen savers based on time of day?

I've got London here and it is representative of the correct time of day. Did you turn on updates during initial set-up?

Daily updates turned on for screensavers.
Auto update turned on for system.
Date and time set automatically.
Time zone is correct.

This isn't this biggest feature in the world (time of day), but the chick at the keynote made a big deal about it. It should work.

I restored my device yesterday, so maybe that's what triggered it, but this morning, I had New York and it was the correct time of day and now I have London which is at night, so again accurate. It's kinda like being in a helicopter lol.

Actually might be working, sorta. Right now I have the same East River (NY) and it's sunset-ish, which is almost right (sunset is in an hour, almost). So... Hm. I'd like to see the others, though!

Do we have any idea of 'Daily' speeds up rotation or just the downloads?
