WorldClock is an attractive and easy to use desktop time utility that includes timezone, timesync, calendar, wallpaper and alarm features. Its primary purpose is to get the current local time for any area of the world simply by clicking on a world map. It will automatically determine whether Daylight Savings Time is in effect for the selected area and adjusts the time accordingly.
WorldClock can synchronize your PC's clock with one of the many 'Atomic Clocks' available on the Internet. You can also schedule TimeSyncs to occur at pre-defined intervals or at a set time. And by using the WorldClock AutoTimeSync Service, this scheduled TimeSync will occur even if WorldClock is not running.
WorldClock also gives you the ability to fully customize the Windows taskbar clock display. In addition to displaying regular time and date information, it also allows you to display current local weather conditions.
WorldClock also comes with several Windows wallpaper features that present a wide variety of very useful information. These include: A high resolution day/night world map with the local times of up to 20 selectable cities; an analog clock display with user configurable update ferquency; a one to three month calendar; and the current weather conditions for any selected city.
You can also set up to eight alarms active for any pattern of selected days. Alarms can be configured to sound a user selectable wave file or run an application.
WorldClock also has a very nice calendar that allows you to set important reminders (with notification) and includes all Canadian and US holidays.
And finally, WorldClock can display a series of multiple clock windows that easily allows you to keep track of a large number of cities simultaneously.
A screenshot of WorldClock's main window is shown below.
