If you need to or want to keep track of the time for two, six, or 14 locations around the world, may I recommend a very light, attractive way to do it?
World Clocks can display as many clocks with times as you wish, featuring analogue and digital clocks and choice of dark or light backgrounds.
Unless you need time zone information right there on your desktop all the time (both Windows and Mac have this function in the system tray), World Clocks is the new way to go.
Google Chrome users can simply download the application as an add-on, while those using other devices, such as smartphones and tablets, for example, can arrange the clocks at the program's website and get it from the browser.
World Clocks is very much a set-it-and-forget-it type of app. There are two basic choices for how it looks (meaning you have four possibilities in total) and, of course, many possibilities of which time zones you want to keep track of, as well as how you want them labelled.
The labels, by the way, are by World Clocks, so you can't change them. Like for Thailand, let's say, you can label it as "Bangkok" and nothing else.
With World Clocks, users can set up to six clocks, and can delete any of them to add their own clocks.
The last set-up feature in which users can arrange their own clocks is by assigning what World Clocks remembers and what it shows until you decide to change it again.
You can choose between an analogue display, which is quite attractive, or a digital display, which is quick. You can also select a dark or light background, and there you have it!
The program, however, is well thought out under the hood. In addition to being pretty, it keeps track of daylight savings time and local standard time.
You can set up your own World Clocks at the neat website by author Kailash Nadh at wwwclock6.com, where it will remember your settings each time you visit.
To download and integrate the app into your system, you will need to have Google Chrome and get it from the Chrome Web Store at http://j.mp/rpU7xL.
