Editors' review

Is your dull system-tray clock getting you down? Clock Tray Skins has plenty of inventive styles and colors to dress it up. One displays the time in Japanese characters. Another makes the date and time look as if they've been sketched into your system tray.

Additional features include a basic calendar, random skin selection, and synchronization with an atomic time server. Changing skins is as simple as right-clicking the clock, selecting the main dialog, and choosing from a window of options. Clock Tray Skins isn't a must-have by any means, but it's a simple way to jazz up your desktop.

    "Possible bug"

    November 26, 2010   |   By jrc007

    Version: Clock Tray Skins 4.1

    Pros

    More visible and useful than system clock.

    Cons

    Running Vista SP2. When nag screen started popping up after a month of use, I would click the not-buy option. 'Puter would then run slowly. Quitting CTS solved the problem. Rather than deal with future problems, I deleted the pgm.

    Summary

    Worked fine until this bug showed up.

    "Exelenct, this is a must have for busy folks like me"

    July 09, 2009   |   By bjjfighter4444

    Version: Clock Tray Skins 2.5

    Pros

    I use the Atomic-Alarm-Clock reminders for almost everything, from "clocking-in and out from work" to everyday tasks, to favorite tv shows and more. I realy enjoy the diffrent types of skins which I use to match my desktop theme.

    Cons

    Although the calendar is as efficient as any other calendar, I think it should be more "capable" to meet the the great purpose, not to mention that an "iphone" app would be just better then perfect.

    Summary

    I can't wait until a revised, upgraded version is out.

    "Good display of time"

    June 13, 2009   |   By ahliu

    Version: Clock Tray Skins 4.1

    Pros

    I was looking for something that'd offer a clear display of time in the system tray, and the Big skin of this tool seems to do it for me. The display, which also includes date and day information, looks clean to me.

    Cons

    While it seems possible to adjust the background color, it doesn't seem possible to adjust the foreground color. That would have been a good feature to have.

    "Excellent desktop enhancement"

    March 27, 2009   |   By kme1961

    Version: Clock Tray Skins 4.1

    Pros

    Exactly what I was looking for: a clock that would sit in the system tray but be more readable and provide more information than the windows clock. You can pick the skin that makes it easiest to read or the one that makes you smile. Great addition.

    Cons

    would like it if I could customize skins more easily.

    Summary

    very nice addition.

    "Nice selection of skins."

    October 29, 2008   |   By katechaos

    Version: Clock Tray Skins 4.1

    Pros

    It has plenty of skins to use, and definitely not as boring as the regular system tray clock. It's also useful because it can display multiple things without clicking on it..(Such as the day/date/time..etc.)

    Cons

    It's not free after a month, but I think it's worth the price.

    "Dosen't work to well with Vista"

    October 25, 2008   |   By jeepin2

    Version: Clock Tray Skins 2.5

    Pros

    Nothing at all.

    Cons

    that you can't uninstall.

    Summary

    Do not trust anything from this company. can't uninstall..I have the desktop christmas tree and atomic clock..and there is no way to uninstall...there is a icon on my desktop but when I click on it to uninstall it says uninstall does not exist..cannot uninstall...I have wrote this company 4 times without one reply from them...I am running vista and at least on my computer it is causing my pc to have problems...I have even restored to a earlier date and that pesky little tree is still there..
    I think its terrible a company can offer you something like this with no way of getting it off....

    "Truly a sensational product!!"

    March 20, 2008   |   By clyndy

    Version: Clock Tray Skins 4

    Pros

    I really like the way it "jazzes up" my clock tray. This product is extremely easy to use. There is an ample variety of skins to suit every personality. I also like that you can incorporate your own colors to further customize your clock tray to make it uniquely your own "creation." Clock Tray Skins is fun, flexible, and infinitely fascinating!
