Editors' Review

Since the dawn of System Time, Windows has run a bit behind when it comes to timekeeping. Third-party developers have led the way with improvements like atomic clock updates and world time. While widgets and other improvements have brought Windows up to date, there is still a need for tools like My World Time. It's a handy but unobtrusive multiple time display that can show you at a glance what time it is in several parts of the world. It has some useful extras, too.

My World Time's default display is a narrow bar about 3 inches long that displays the time and date for two locations. It automatically minimizes to a green line that's perfectly unobtrusive yet easy to find when you need it. Right-clicking the display or the system tray icon called up a menu with options for always on top, autohide, and selecting locations via an advanced options dialog. This tabbed dialog let us choose time zones, display colors, audible messages, and visual settings related to how the program appears on the desktop, mouse button selections, border colors, and delays. My World Time automatically displayed our system time and zone as My Place in the display; we set China as the second display, and a gong sound alerted us to the change. The audible settings let us select how and when to announce the time; choose a speaking voice or to toll the hour with a ding sound that we were easily able to replace with our own WAV. Test buttons let us preview our selections, while the Format buttons let us choose a wide range of day-date-time display formats. In fact, it seems possible to customize just about everything about this compact but versatile program. But it doesn't stop there; clicking Tools on the program's menu called up a menu of useful extras, including a calculator, a calendar, a world time conversion tool, a unit conversion tool, and a stopwatch. Each was a competent performer with customizable options, too.

My World Time is a fine piece of freeware that does a lot for the tiny amount of desktop real estate it occupies. If you keep track of time around the world, it's the perfect answer, and it's great to have such useful extras so handy, too.

    "It's simply what I was looking for"

    January 25, 2011   |   By franzvillaman

    Version: My World Time 1.7

    Pros

    One can display at least 4 different locations with this software, which, as a matter of fact is what I'm doing with it. It's a great program.

    Cons

    Although it is stated that can be used free of charge, after a while,at start up, pops up a window reminding the user, there's a deadline and to avoid that, should contact the developers.

    Summary

    It's a fine simple software!

    "This is a really great little utility."

    December 07, 2010   |   By RMerritt

    Version: My World Time 1.7

    Pros

    Ability to customize the time zones displayed and the conversion add-on.

    Cons

    It is free. That may sound like a mistake, but it always concerns me when someone gives something that is very good away for free. Will they be around to continue to enhance and support it.

    Summary

    Try it. You will like it.
