Bug Description

I'm on image #203 on mako and use a German locale.

In other apps, the 24h format is used (which is what I, and other Germans, would expect). In the messaging app however, I see "11:34 nachm.", which is supposed to mean "23:34". Unfortunately "nachm." is short for "nachmittag", so "afternoon", which hardly makes sense for 23:34. This is due to the fact, that we have no good way of expressing AM/PM in German, as it's simply not used.

If the messaging-app used the 24h format on a German locale, the problem would be fixed.

summary: - Sticks to 12h format
+ Uses 12h instead of 24h format (on a German locale)
