Editors' Review

Sharp World Clock displays the current time in various locations around the world in attractive, customizable analog or digital clocks, with many extras. Its default interface is a cluster of six attractive analog-style clock faces you can set to any time zone. You can rearrange and undock clocks, customize size and transparency, and more.

Pros

Attractive: Realistic highlights and national flags make Sharp World Clock's analog clock faces attractive and easy to read at a distance.

Customizable: We could change the look and layout of our clocks, set hotkeys to show or hide clocks, undock individual clocks, set software behavior, and customize many more aspects of Sharp World Clock than most other clock widgets, gadgets, and apps.

Time Zone Calculator and Meeting Scheduler: Sharp World Clock's Time Zone Calculator has a graphical meeting scheduler that can help you set up international conference calls.

Extra features: Sharp World Clock comes with many more features and capabilities than the typical desktop clock, including News Feeds, Sticky Notes, Weather Report, and Spoken Time.

Cons

Expensive: While you largely get what you pay for, at $29, Sharp World Clock is obviously much more expensive than most other desktop world clock apps, which are usually free.

Bottom Line

If you depend on accurate global time, you may appreciate Sharp World Clock's extra capabilities. It's definitely better than freeware desktop clocks, though whether that's enough to justify its cost will depend on your needs.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sharp World Clock 6.5.

"Best & Most Customizable Clock Ever!"

April 19, 2015  |  By ToddJohnson1

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.5

Pros

This clock works flawlessly, which is after all what everyone looks for to begin with. However, unlike some of the others out there, it is highly customizable. You can get the look and feel you like, change colors, styles, formats, add flags, make it digital or clock-faced, in short, make it your clock, to match your taste and personality. Probably the best features is the developer himself. He takes pride in his work and updates it regularly at no extra charge - for life. I had the K****C clock for several years before I got the Sharp World Clock. It had functionality issues, and the developer was constantly sending updates that did nothing but require a new license. In other words, he kept forcing customers to buy the same thing they already bought. I confronted him with it and he just ignored me. The Sharp World Clock's developer is proactive, keeps the product working perfectly and is 100% honest.

Cons

I always hate it when someone says there are no cons. Normally there has to be something wrong with a product. However, in the case of the Sharp World Clock, I honestly can't think of anything I don't like. It does everything I want it to do and the developer keeps it up-to-date at no extra charge.

Summary

If you want a clock that is always there, works flawlessly and let's you tinker with the design whenever you like - this clock is for you. But don't take my word for it. Download the trial version and check it out for free. Once you try it, the clock sells itself.

"Have some Great Times with World Clock!"

January 30, 2015  |  By nokomis

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.5

Pros

Oh it's great! You can set it up to look exactly as you wish, any size, colour and arrangement of the dials for different regions. I can now tell at a glance if my friends across the world are likely to be awake, and whether it's still daylight and even if it's raining before I contact them! It's fun too! Worth every penny and there is excellent support too!

Cons

No cons that I can think of!

Summary

I just wish all downloads were as worthwhile.

"Magnificent"

August 23, 2014  |  By flinndaewood

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.31

Pros

So many utilities, it all works perfect and easy to figure out how to use it all.
Tracking the time many places at once is easy now. I have previously used www.world-clock.net, but this tool makes it all much more joyful.

Cons

Not really anything, every thing seems to have been polished

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.26

Pros

If you a a World Time nerd then this program is for you. Extremely detailed with 100's of options for time and weaher

Cons

I would like old school looking clocks. Or military style ones with a GMT hand. But maybe I missed that

"LIARS! It's listed in the "FREE" Section but it isn't"

May 07, 2014  |  By morpheus2021

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.24

Pros

None, didn't try it because it's not FREE as advertised.

Cons

This software is listed in the FREE section, but actually it is "Free to try for 15 days." Software developers should stop lying about whether their software is actually free.

"Well designed app with significant functionality."

March 24, 2014  |  By Peter_Hancox

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.24

Pros

Haven't found anything that I need that the program can't do. Also found several neat features such as dimming clocks during non-business hours that I hadn't thought of but find really useful.

Nice uncluttered user interface that supports significant customisation.

Ability to export settings for backup and transferring between computers.

Very responsive support from the developer.

Cons

Some minor issues with screen resolution and high DPI displays particularly in multi-monitor environment.

That said, many applications today (including major graphic software developers who should do better) handle high DPI displays very badly. In comparison Sharp World Clock is one of the better ones.

What problems I had were resolved within a couple of days by the developer.

Summary

For many years I had been using a very good free world time clock. Unfortunately it is no longer being updated and as I had to rebuild my main work computer, went looking for the "best" world clock available. After many hours of research I came across Sharp World Clock and decided to try it out.

I have not been disappointed and despite the fact that it isn't free, it is well worth the small investment.

With its combination of rich functionality, clean and customisable user interface, and superb developer support, I can highly recommend this application to anyone.

"I absolutely love this program!"

March 03, 2014  |  By mcintymp

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.24

Pros

I work for a company where I have to deal with engineers in multiple locations all over the globe. I can never keep straight what time it is anywhere. Word Clock allows me to have all of the relevant regions that I deal with on a screen in a concise display. This allows me to know if a contact is available, when they most likely will be available, and how best to schedule meetings. I've been using it for years and it is the ONLY clock software I need.

Cons

The only thing that I can think of is that it would be nice to be able to reposition the GMT offset on the clock faces. Some of the larger offsets (multiple digits) are partially hidden behind the face of the clock.

Summary

If you don't have, download it and try it out. Once you do, you will be hooked!

"VERY PLEASED"

February 21, 2014  |  By jwpopp

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 6.24

Pros

My friends ask why I would pay for a clock program when there are so many that are free. Hah! The many have very limited functionality. This one is loaded with extremely useful options.

I congratulate you for your effort and your insights. This is by far the most useful of the many clock programs I've tried. The customizing options are superb. You've truly done a world-class job with it.

Cons

None discovered.
