    "Great Clock and Weather Widget - Highly Recomended!"

    January 15, 2013  |   By jamesb1818

    Version: HTC Home for Windows 3.0 Build 621

    Pros

    - Beautiful User Interface (UI)
    - Combined Clock, Date and Weather Widget
    - Six Display Options (Clock Only, Clock + Daily Forecast, Clock + 5 Day Forecast etc)
    - Options to choose weather source of choice (Weather.com, Accuweather, MSN etc). Addons are free downloads from HTC Home website
    - Options to add (also via free download) sound and weather animations to widget (eg. Raindrops in rain, thunder during storms etc)

    Cons

    - CNET download file is outdated and unfortunately the 'HTC Home' website servers are iffy / terribly slow. Nevertheless, go to HTC Home to get the latest version.
    - Installer (as so many do these days) will try to trick you several times into downloading 'Free Toolbars + Change Home Page + Change Search Engine addons' (Some crap call Incredibar). Just be patient and uncheck all additional options, and read each line BEFORE clicking 'Next'.
    - The Installer then tries to trick you with addons again - this time its even sneakier. Make sure to uncheck all addon options but DO NOT press 'Next'. If you read the language, it says even if all options are unchecked, pressing 'Next' means you agree to install the extra toolbar. There are no other buttons to press either. So press 'X' as if closing the program - this will give you a pop-up with options to cancel action, or install without addons. Sneaky tw ats.

    Summary

    Overall - For something that is on your desktop in a high visibility area, this widget is aesthetically pleasing, accurate and useful. Server issues / slow downloads and installer addon trickery aside, this is a great tool that I highly recommend.

    Just be patient during the download / install process - its a one time painful process but if done right, you will likely enjoy this useful app.

    "Dissapointed!!"

    February 9, 2012  |   By twillia76

    Version: HTC Home for Windows 3.0 Build 621

    Pros

    Looks good

    Cons

    It shows the temperature at -2 when it was actually 30 degrees. It also requires an open window to remain open.

    Summary



    Updated on Feb 9, 2012

    So I figured out the temperature issue but I still don't like how using this requires an open window.

    "Don't install it"

    January 7, 2012  |   By InfoJunkie777

    Version: HTC Home for Windows 3.0 Build 621

    Pros

    Beautiful look on the desktop, if a little large. And one has weather and clock together.

    Cons

    It locked up my Windows 7 computer so bad it would not boot. Windows went into recovery mode and had to use Restore and delete the program to get Windows back.

    "A clock that Windows should have"

    January 19, 2011  |   By jhobbs4

    Version: HTC Home for Windows 2.0 build 200

    Pros

    This is a Clock that Even Windows7 does not have and should, easy to use and resource stingy.

    Cons

    very limited in number of time displays

    Summary

    This is a Clock that Even Windows7 does not have and should. It displays just as and in the same place of the original clock does with one great feature. You can set it up to display the day and/or date along with different clocks such as London and Bangkok. this is great when you are working with different time zones around the world. This feature is hidden so that it DOES NOT require screen space and is VERY resource stingy.
    ENJOY AND IT IS FREE!!!
