Given a simple time picker to be used on a mobile app where you set times for reminders and alarms what should you have the default time as when a user opens the time picker up. Take this as an example UI:
12:00am - generally used as a default time for clocks. However, not many people set alarms/reminders for midnight so it seems like a wasted starting point. Likely not close to the current time, so if the user just wanted to set an alarm for 5 minutes away it could take a lot of scrolling.
Current Time - If someone want to set a reminder for a close event can just scroll up a few minutes/hours. However, it also has the implications of it is 12:35am and the user wants to set the clock to 2:00am they have to scroll the minute wheel up 25 ticks. Also possibly the inconsistency of starting at different times could be confunsing?
Which options (or other option) is the most user friendly and minimizes user interaction?
