editor's review




Portable Qlock Free is a freebie that shows the current time in various regions around the world with the help of fully customizable floating windows on your desktop.

Although it’s mostly focused on this particular purpose, Portable Qlock Free comes with a lot more utilities, most of which you shall discover as you explore its interface.

First of all, it allows you to track as many cities as you want, each window showing city and country, date and time. A dedicated feature allows you to set up alarms, again with several customization options.

You can repeat the alarm in multiple days of the week, enable a countdown alarm, add a message and a sound. Users are allowed to create up to five different alarms for each location.

What’s more, every single location window can be further customized by choosing different dimensions or colors and by adjusting transparency level.

Aside from the world clock times, Portable Qlock Free also comes with a built-in RSS & Atom feed reader, again based on dockable desktop windows that show the retrieved information anywhere on the screen. What’s more, time synchronization options are also available, with both manual and automatic modes at your disposal.

Portable Qlock Free doesn’t affect the overall system performance and runs just fine on all Windows iterations. In addition, it is fully portable, which means you can always copy all its files on a removable drive and use it on the go.

All in all, Portable Qlock Free may come in handy to many users out there, be they beginners or with a bit more computer experience. It provides a pleasant interface, plenty of customization options and an online help manual to make sure users figure out how to take the most out of the program.
