Analog Clock

Very small-sized and portable Java-based application that shows a standard graphical representation of an analog clock on the desktop
Analog Clock is a very small Java-based application whose only goal is to display an analog clock on the desktop. It synchronizes to the system time.

Installation is not a requirement, which makes Analog Clock portable. You can drop the JNLP file anywhere on the hard disk and just click it to run.

It is also possible to save the app to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort, as long as it has Java installed.

An important factor to take into account is that the tool does not create new entries in the Windows registry or hard drive (as it usually happens with installers), leaving no traces behind after removal.

The interface is made from a normal window with a very simplistic layout, where the analog clock immediately loads. The hours are marked by red dots, and the dials are blue. There are no kind of options implemented here. However, it is possible to increase or decrease the clock dimension by resizing the window.

Unfortunately, Analog Clock does not implement options for making it stay on top of other frames, or for minimizing it to the system tray area (it goes to the taskbar instead).

The tool is very light on the system resources, using low CPU and memory, so it does not affect overall performance. We have not come across any problems throughout our evaluation, since the app did not hang, crash or display errors. All in all, Analog Clock serves its purpose and can be used by anyone.
