Editors' Review

+

Big Free Clock is exactly what its name suggests: a free utility that displays the time in a large format. Although it's a fairly basic utility, it comes with enough options for customization to make it interesting.

The program's interface is plain, just a large digital clock with two buttons: one to minimize it, and one to display the options menu. There are quite a few options, too; users can make the background and numbers transparent, change the number color, switch to 24-hour format, and increase and decrease the size of the numbers. Our first impression of Big Free Clock was that it was hard to read; the numbers were tall and skinny and hard to distinguish from each other. This turned out to be a quick fix, though; all we had to do was grab a corner of the interface and drag it to adjust the numbers' proportions. The program has no Help file, but it's not really needed, either; all of its features are pretty easy to figure out. Overall, Big Free Clock didn't offer anything that we hadn't already seen from similar programs, but we think it's a fine choice if you're looking for a basic clock with an adjustable display.

"Great prior to Windows 10..."

December 31, 2015  |  By zwomann

 |  Version: Big Free Clock 2.0

Pros

My 4k monitor shows my clock very small, I use this on my far left one and it's perfect - no background, just the digits.

Cons

Once I update to Windows 10 I get an error "failed to set data for BigFreeClock".

Summary

LOVE this, just wish the error would go away.

"Just what I need!"

 |  Version: Big Free Clock 2.0

Pros

Fully-customizable clock. Takes just 4 megabytes of RAM. I keep them red (reminiscent of the old clock radios), about 1"x4" with just the hour and minute, with transparent background, so it's always visible, never in the way, and it's big enough that I can see it from anywhere in the room! A must-have piece of software.

Cons

Doesn't have bacon?

Pros

When you need to be able to keep an eye on the time this is the one for you. Easily sized from small to full screen. Everything you would need in a large screen clock.

NOTHING!
[the addition of an alarm & count down timer would make it complete]

Summary

Versatile, easy to use, should suit anybody. I am extremely happy with it, 100% thumbs up.
