    "Perfect customisation and classy appearance"

    April 26, 2012  |   By Cheshire-lad

    Version: Sharp World Clock 5.74

    Pros

    -You can really customise anything you like to get clocks to appear exactly as you wish. Borders, size, colours, patterns, fonts, flag sizes etc are all adjustable.
    - I like the time zone calculator to see when a good time to have conference calls in multiple time zones is.
    - In the past I used Windows Gadget clocks but they took up a lot of desktop real estate and when I used a projector or monitor with a different resolution it moved the clocks around. With Sharp world clock I have a compact solution and I can 'dock' them all as one gadget, so it's easy to move around etc.

    Cons

    - I bought this product as it does just what I want, but $39 for a clock just felt excessive.
    - Programming error means clocks temporarily disappear when I click show desktop in Windows 7 (which is different to the windows desktop gadgets).

    Summary

    - If you work with multiple locations and time zones, this is a perfect tidy way to manage your clocks, but the price galls me!

    February 23, 2012  |   By causality

    Version: Sharp World Clock 5.7

    Pros

    Customization - Traditional hand clocks or Digital.
    Tons and tons of other customization features.
    As many clocks as you wish and how you wish to make them look.
    Weather is included.
    Looks professional, clean and sharp.
    Easy to reference, edit, and customize.

    Cons

    Seriously - none that I have.

    Summary

    I need access to serveral world time zones at a glance with my work. This application is perfect. The digital clocks take up half the space as the hand clocks and you can include date, flag, skyscape, etc on them too. Easy to see and reference. I love this application.

    "A GREAT desktop product for HAM RADIO operators!"

    November 17, 2011  |   By w4vok

    Version: Sharp World Clock 5.46

    Pros

    Easy and fun to set-up. Great for the computer desktop for every amateur radio station. I have mine set up with clocks for major cities around the world and positioned stategically on a world map. I can always see the exact time of day (or night) of any radio station that I contact anywhere on earth! Great for the logbook. There are plenty of great features included in this program. Works flawlessly.

    Cons

    None the I have found.

    Summary

    Highly recommended for the serious Ham Radio DX'er!!!

    "Simply the BEST!"

    October 25, 2011  |   By beotrini

    Version: Sharp World Clock 5.42

    Pros

    I work as an international support person and love this very practical tool. Initially I installed and tested several different software solutions, but decided for SHARP WORLD CLOCK:

    It is fully customizable
    It has many different features
    I like the visual design
    The hot keys are practical.
    It works perfectly

    WOW: I suggested an additional feature I needed... and this was implemented by the software programer in a very short time. Thank you, Johannes!

    Cons

    Absolutely None!

    Summary

    Go for it! You will not regret it!
    This IS the BEST on the market!

    "THE BEST clock out there, paid, trialware or freeware!"

    September 17, 2011  |   By ivardesign

    Version: Sharp World Clock 5.33

    Pros

    Unheard-of amount of customization options
    Great transparency options
    Chrome-less appearance options
    Tons of great built in designs
    Use your own alarm sounds
    As many clocks as you want 1 to untold!
    TOP-FAVE: F-Key options! 1 turns off my monitor!

    Cons

    Can't think of a single one.

    Summary

    I am always trying out new software and I NEVER write reviews, except... well, when something really get's me mad... but I have to write about this one, because I searched for months (really) to find something this good!

    This is the BEST clock I've found for Win 7. It's the most customizable in looks and sounds & has a great, intuitive interface. I LOVE this new version but I am sticking with the earlier release (for now) because I'm so attached to some of the previous versions features! I'm torn between the two versions and have switched installations a few times already, because each version is so dramatically different (check out Johannes' site for the previous version and a bunch of other great stuff). But it's the ONE program I have installed (besides RocketDock) in the past couple of years that I just never get unhappy with (and for me, that really says a lot, I'm not very forgiving)!

    [Start of rather lengthy back-story on this] I had promised Mr. Wallroth that I would write a review for his first release of this program (well over a year ago) and am finally doing it, but instead, it's for this version, though I'd like to keep true to my word and cover a bit of the first version. I had to reinstall WinVista (ugh!) a ways back and lost my registration number for the first version with the rest of my data. I sent a note to Johannes via his website to ask if he could help, because I couldn't remember what email address I used for the registration (which I needed to recover the number). I gave him a list of some possibilities and I was elated to have very quickly received a reply with the number! I had mentioned how much I liked his software and gave him a little story about my rather rigorous searches and he asked if I would put that in a review.

    I can't believe I can like a program so much. I actually have sentiment toward it. You see, I installed a LOT of junk before, as well as after Sharp World Clock, that not only was ugly, but just didn't work very well. I just wanted a good, working alarm clock for my laptop when my real clock died. I didn't really even need it, but I liked having it there (for occasions I didn't have my 'pocket-watch-that-doubles-as-a-cellphone handy). But I thought, why not put one on my laptop and keep from having to put more stuff in my minimalist (and somewhat small) bedroom.

    Finally, I found this gem! I waded through a lot of freeware, but I had ZERO PROBLEMOS with the inexpensive price for this! If 'Windows' ever advances (for real) and this program doesn't work on the next version, ...I'm not gonna upgrade Windows until a version that works comes out!

    Cheers!
    Ivar

    "The Only One"

    July 29, 2011  |   By roy cactus

    Version: Sharp World Clock 5.0

    Pros

    I can not imagine a feature you would want in a clock app that is not included in Sharp World Clock.

    Cons

    It makes other clock programs look dumb.

    Summary

    I have reviewed this app before and version 5 has outdone itself. I like to trade on world markets like forex and I use this program to remind me when markets are opening or close. That is super easy with alarms and office hours. I can only think of about 100 other reasons to use it. If you need an app for even one other time zone I wouldn't bother with the others, I did and this is the one I was looking for. It is fun to configure and is really sharp.
