Big Clock 4.0

Simple-to-configure application that helps you run a clock in a full screen mode, display an optional message and configure text color, number color and background
Big Clock is a very simple application that shows the current time in full screen, just like a typical screensaver.

Although it's not a screensaver per se, which means you have to manually enable the clock on the desktop, Big Clock comes with several configuration options concerning both its features and the interface.

Several configuration settings

With a clean and well-organized look of the main window, the program lets you input an optional message to be displayed at top of the screen, but also configure text color, number color and background.

Although the final look isn't quite breathtaking, you can still customize the interface to fit your desktop, while a separate option enables you to select a new random background at a user-defined interval.

You can change the text and the number font, while a bunch of dedicated options let you enable seconds and a 24-hour clock, or simply prevent screen saver from activating whenever you're using Big Clock.

Support for multiple monitors and hotkeys

In case you have more than a single monitor, you can easily pick the one you wish to use, while Big Clock also boasts a rather simple hotkey support to define key combinations for quitting or minimizing the program.

Performance

Big Clock runs smoothly on all Windows workstations without slowing down the systems at all, as it remains very light on hardware resources most of the time.

Bottom line

While it's pretty clear that it still needs a bunch of improvements and a more appealing look, Big Clock still does its job, providing an easy-to-use alternative to a traditional clock screensaver.
