I 'm working on a android application, this app may list your songs. so the developers put the default counter as singular digit like ""0:4:0 ""

is it better to display it as a double digit format like "00:04:00" ? is it more readable in that way?

1 Answer 1


Yes. I would prefer 00:00:00 variation because people are used to write time in this format so it is more visual.

  • yea, i though that too, it more readable than the singular format
