EarthTime is a basic program that allows users to view the time in multiple locations around the world. It's nothing fancy, but it does allow users to track multiple cities and view their location on a world map.
The program's interface is simple, with a map of the world that shows daylight and darkness. The time in various locations is shown above the map, and users can put them in whatever order they prefer. A red pointer moves across the clocks, pointing to the appropriate location on the map for each one. We found it especially helpful to be able to tell at a glance whether it was day or night in a given location. All of the program's options were simple to use. It's easy to add clocks representing different cities; users simply go to the Edit menu and search by country. Users can customize the way the date and time are displayed, as well as all of the program's colors. Alarms can be set, and users can set custom actions for left-clicking, right-clicking, and double-clicking on each city. Programs that are this basic often have pretty skimpy Help files, but EarthTime's Help file is quite well-written and thorough. Overall, the program is very intuitive and easy to use, offering just the right amount of customization.
EarthTime has a 30-day trial period. It comes as a ZIP file, but it installs politely and uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users seeking a way to keep track of the time in multiple global locations.
EarthTime displays the local time and date of any place in the world. It has a built-in database of more than 3000 cities worldwide but users can add any number of custom locations. Alarms can be set on the local time of any city in the world. Many options allow flexible customization.
