editor's review




EarthClock is a small desktop enhancement utility designed specifically for helping you place an analogue clock on your screen which displays as a background image a real-time view of the earth.

Simple-to-handle features

You can run multiple instances of the program and place them on the desired screen position using the drag-and-drop support. What’s more, you can access the utility’s functions by performing a simple right-click mouse operation on the clock.

Different viewing modes

EarthClock comes packed with several tweaking parameters designed specifically for helping you adjust the size of the analogue clock (small, medium, large, huge) and alter the viewing mode by selecting from different options, such as Tokyo, North Pole, New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, America, or others.

Configuration settings

Furthermore, you can choose between two different skins or download some more from the official website of the application for changing the looks of the clock, and refresh the clock with just one click.

Other notable configuration settings allow you to run the utility at Windows startup, make the primary panel remain on top of other tools, automatically refresh data at a user-defined time, add a new viewing mode the preset list by specifying the name and URL, configure proxy settings, show the clock and seconds, as well as install new skins.

Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to configure the dedicated parameters, even less experienced users can learn to set up the entire process in no time. Tests revealed that the EarthClock displays the time accurately and provides very good image quality.

Bottom line

To sum things up, EarthClock proves to be a useful time and clock management app that comes bundled with a handy suite of features.
