This very basic program simply displays the current time in locations around the planet, although it lacks certain features we like to see in this sort of application. Cybertime's tiny, nonresizable main window displays a map of the world littered with red dots representing major cities. Clicking any city will set the app's built-in clock to that time zone, but you can still mouse over other towns to see additional times. Although the program sits in your system tray for quick access, the icon doesn't display the time, so you'll have to visit the main window to retrieve information. We also missed the ability to configure multiple clocks at once, and the program's lack of an alarm strikes us as a serious omission. The Time Calculator and Time Converter features both quickly let you determine the time differences between two locations, but since they do about the same thing, we don't see why both are included. You also can sync up your PC clock with the server time, but we can't verify that's as reliable of a method as using an atomic clock, a feature of many similar programs. Still, since it's free and very small, we can see how folks with the occasional need to know world times might find Cybertime attractive.

Cybertime is the Internet-time and business-world-time standard created for the new world of international e-commerce, e-business persons, and Internet communication. The application allows you to check the time in all major cities around the world using the world map, as well as display Cybertime. You also can calculate the time in different cities and convert Cybertime to regular time and vice versa.
