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.

Developer's Description

Sharp World Clock is a desktop clock program for Windows. It can display the local time for multiple cities and time zones with correct daylight savings. You can decide how many clocks you would like to see at any time. The clocks are resizable without any loss of visual quality (due to the use of hardware accelerated WPF technology). Sharp World Clock can show analog clocks (with hands) or digital clocks - or both. You can arrange the clocks in a grid array with adjustable columns and grids or in a horizontal or vertical line, but you can also undock clocks from the main window and position them anywhere on the desktop. Accurate calculation of sunrise and sunset times and moon phase. Integrated tools: time zone converter, alarm center with multiple alarms (single and recurrent), calendar widget for 1, 2, 4 or 6 months, feed reader and weather report. Chime function with hourly and quarterly signal or speak-the-time. Export / import function for settings.
