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.

"The most useful clock program I have found in years"

March 17, 2016  |  By rfur72

 |  Version: Sharp World Clock 7.0

Pros

I don't normally write reviews but this product is just so good!

The incredible flexibility of the clock style is amazing and lets you produce pretty much any look you might want.

Although there are an awfully large number of options, don't let this worry you. Most of them are intuitive and the tooltips are very helpful for those that aren't. Having said that, the default settings are perfectly acceptable.

I run three screens on my work and home computers and have the clocks aligned along the top of the third (least used) screen. I work in a global business so have 9 time zones on the go and this was just what I was looking for.

The flags, temperature and sky strips are cool extras I wasn't expecting.

The price is also very reasonable, and the ability to run it on two machines for one license is a nice touch as well.

Cons

I haven't really found any yet.

Summary

If you work in a multi-national environment and need to keep track of who is awake and who isn't then this is a great app.

I am seriously considering setting up an old PC in the office with a monitor on the wall to replace the current clock we have there. It would certainly save a lot of arithmetic!

I highly recommend this program!
