Editors' Review

+

Unlike similar applications, SymmTime works like clockwork when it comes to keeping track of any of the 24 time zones around the world. It synchronizes your computer's system clock to one of several free external timeservers, so you know it's never off. The basics are well-covered here, too, with all changes accessible through the context menu.

Setting the multiple time zones to multiple clocks, choosing colors for the analog faces or fonts for the digital ones, renaming zones to represent your favorite locales and even setting the clock panel to a favored place on your desktop are all straightforward and intuitive tasks. This program has neither bells nor whistles--no time zone maps, no sunrise or sunset information, not even an alarm clock. However, for a freeware, customizable, multi-zone world clock, you'd think SymmTime was Swiss-made.

"Adware.. even if you opt out"

March 31, 2013  |  By hk2000

 |  Version: SymmTime 2007

Pros

Nothing... Lots of options? That is a con in my book.

Cons

too complicated, too many very useless options. I just wanted a time synch to keep windows time accurate. This does not do a good job with that and yet adds a couple of unwanted and hidden apps (one is called Adpeak- I'm not sure if this is ad-ware, but I do not appreciate it being installed after I made sure I opted out of all the extras.

Summary

Not worth the hassle or the risk.

"Not for Windows 7"

March 27, 2010  |  By longviewlarry

 |  Version: SymmTime 2007

Pros

None that I could find

Cons

Doesn't install normally on Windows 7. After install, freezes up.

Summary

Install was with administrative permissions as required, yet install opens two windows. One is regular installation wizard, the other says it can't find the path needed and asks me to pick one. If you close the one asking for path, installation stops. So I show it where I want it installed clicking OK. Then install wizard installs it where it would normally go anyway. After install first attempt to set it up seemed to work except the program then froze up and refused to let me access any further set up protocols. Was looking forward to having a good system clock utility but this program doesn't like Windows 7.

"Sync is sunk for anything but USA"

March 10, 2009  |  By scoee

 |  Version: SymmTime 2007

Pros

If I was in USA it might be good.

Cons

Won't sync correct time on the clock to other than USA time Zones. Tried Tokyo, Australia etc and NOTHING.

Summary

If not in USA timezone, which is about 80% of the rest of the world, forget it. Time zones are there, just won't configure and show these times on the clock. Not even considered daylight saving etc. Spent about 15 minutes trying to configure, rebooted, sync'd again. What a waste of time. Maybe an update will fix this rubbish?

Updated on Mar 10, 2009

OK. Uninstalled, Re-downloaded & Re-installed 2 more times and it finally sync'd to other timezones. Is there a gliche' in the download? Now it works as stated. Update star rating 2 or 3 more
