Put the World Times on Your Desktop


Have you ever called someone half away around the country or in other parts of the world, only to find out that you had called them at an inappropriate time? Why not put the world times on your desktop with qlock?

Qlock is a great little program that I have been using for years. Because I’m usually working on international project and I have family and friends scattered around the globe, it is good to be able to look at a glance to determine what time it is where you want to call.

Qlock's right click menu

Qlock allows you to put multiple clocks on your desktop. If you’re using the freeware version you can select sizes including small, medium, and large (this is referred to as skins in the right click menu). There are a variety of colors available, so that you can easily tell your cities apart at a glance.

Qlock is available as freeware and paid editions. Looking at the right click menu, you can see some of the features that are added to the paid version. Are you using qlock or a different desktop application that shows you the time in multiple cities? If you have any other comments, I’d love to hear them. If you liked this article, please consider subscribing to the blog via RSS or email, share it on or on Digg and pass it on to anyone that you think might appreciate it. Thank you. :)
