how to Synchronize date & time between PC and mobile ?

(i need that the PC date & time will be in the monile)

thank’s in advance


Your web service should expose the date and time in a standard format (e.g. ISO-8601). If your web method is declared to return a DateTime, this should happen automatically – the situation you’ve described should only occur if you’re explicitly doing something like:

return DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("d");

… don’t do that, basically.


Convert the date of your Smartphone to ISO format (i.e. yyyy-mm-dd) then send it to your PC and convert it there from yyyy-mm-dd to mm/dd/yyyy
