CNET Editors' review
Those who work or have family around the world have the need to track the current time across multiple countries. World Clock for Mac is easy to use and allows users to see the current time anywhere in the world.
While download took longer than expected on a high-speed connection, installation of World Clock for Mac completed quickly and without any necessary user interaction. The program is also very easy to use, making the lack of user instructions appropriate. Unfortunately, it did not appear that technical support was available. The program is essentially a map with different time zones. Moving the cursor over the map illuminates the respective time zone and shows the current time in that location. Options are available to show or hide the day/night line as well as major cities in the time zones. Users have the ability to add favorite time zones along the bottom of the screen for frequent references. There is also the option of changing the colors and overall appearance of the map, which is a welcome feature. This app is available for free with no advertising or restrictions.
For those users who need to track multiple time zones for business or personal reasons, World Clock for Mac functions well for this limited purpose, despite the lack of additional features.
From Flash Clocks Website:
The purpose of the World Clock is to simplify the life of those that need to check the current time and date of any time zone in the world, as well as other related information.
The World Clock is complete, however we will add more features as time goes by. As is, the World Clock is perhaps the most simple and efficient World Clock on the Internet, with features not seen in any other World Clock, but we plan to do much more.
World Clock's Features:
Interactive World Map with Drag n' Drop Functionality; Time Zones, and Regions; City Markers; Flags of all Countries; Full Time/Date; Time Zone Window; Time Zone Panel (8 Horizontal Time Zone Windows); Time Zones Database; Control Panel; Settings; Zoom In/Out; Solar Terminator; Embed Tag; Etc.
World Clocks V7 is a freeware, portable, desktop program for Mac, however you can visit our web site and download the version for PC with Windows Operating System.
What's new in this version: World Clock V7 has a new and accurate solar terminator, a new feature on the control panel named Embed Tag, with which users can automatically generate a embed tag to copy and paste on any web site, blog, forum, presentation, software, Intranet and Extranet. The Embed Tag will be automatically generated according to the user's preferences on the World Clock for PC, namely selected colors/theme and time zones.

"It works great!"
Version: World Clock 6.0
Big time zones database;
Internet connection required;
(However, I do understand why they made it that way, and I know time zones are always changing each year due to DST - stupid system in my opinion that most countries/cities use, except a few such as Moscow, which is more intelligent than most, and African countries as well).
This is a very useful app for enterprises and small/medium companies that want to keep track of the time/date on the company's offices throughout the world.
World Clock version 6 is really cool by the way! Much better than version 5.
"What's up with the .zip file?"
Version: World Clock 6.0
N/A - can't get the app to work
N/A - can't get the app to work
This is the second time I've tried to download this app (a previous version months ago, and now 6.0). Would love to try it, and it might be deserving of a 5-star review, but EVERY time I download the zip file and unstuffy it, I get a file that "thinks" it's a Flash application. The file name is "WorldClock.app" but when I double-click it all I ever get is a dialog box telling me the file is damaged. The icon for the app is a Flash document. I've tried everything, multiple restarts, cleaning up permissions, etc., but I can't get it to work. Am I missing something? Anybody else have this problem? Frustrating!! Like I said, I'd give it a higher rating -- if I could get it to work at all. Arrrghhhh....Update on Dec 23 -- finally found the problem. Running under Mountain Lion 10.8.2, as far as Apple is concerned, this is a non-identified developer, thus causing the system to want to trash the file. Went into Security and Privacy settings in the System Prefs and switched to allow applications to download from Anywhere. Was then able to run the app, which should now be recognized. Reset my Prefs back to what they were. After trying the app, I'll up my rating from 1 star to 3. It does what it does, and it's kinda pretty, but doesn't offer anything exceptional or jaw-dropping.
