27 November 2002 - Katie Reid

Interestingly I had never heard of Castle Software before I went on my internet wide hunt to find a desktop clock that would not only tell me my local time but would also fill me in on my friends' hour of the day in the USA - I had started to find it tedious that i would have to count back five or seven hours on my fingers...

I found World Timer - and the 30 day trial seems to have passed way to quick - it's awesome! It neatly sits on your desktop, it never gets obtrusive by insisting it needs to be on top (unless you want it to) and it can be adapted to include ANY world time, MANY world times and whatever colour you want for the background... I personally am a blue fan.

The map is great - it can be hidden but with just one swish of the mouse you can figure out what countries are going to bed and which ones are getting up - no more manual counting for me!

Thanks Castle Software!

I am the support coordinator for a medium sized software company. We provide help desk and front-line support facilities for our customers in seven different time zones across four countries.

Earlier this year, an increase in foreign sales caused the number of time zones we deal with to increase to more than double the number we previously handled. Even keeping track of a small number of different time zones can be difficult, but seven at once proved to be almost impossible.

We needed some way of viewing the time simultaneously in seven or more different time zones. At first we tried looking for a hardware solution, but the devices we found were too small to operate for the whole support team and too expensive to allow purchasing one for every staff member. None of the hardware devices we found displayed the number of time zones we wanted at the same time.

Inevitably, we began searching for software to solve the problem. We found WorldTimer from Castle Software in the Google search engine, and downloaded the 30 day evaluation version.

The installation process was quick, smooth and painless, and it only gets better from there. WorldTimer fits our requirements perfectly and is simple to set up and use. We have seven digital clocks displaying the time in different time zones

The ability to hide the WorldTimer window and bring it back quickly is very important to us. Most of our staff have a large number of applications running at the same time, so their taskbars become crowded. You don't need to search through the application buttons on the taskbar to find WorldTimer. To bring the WorldTimer window back to in to view, all you have to do is click once on the image in the tray window.

As an added bonus that was not one of our original requirements, we found that WorldTimer also has the ability to synchronize the PC system clock using atomic clocks on the Net. It even works from behind our firewall.

By then it was an easy decision to purchase licenses for each of our support staff and now they have WorldTimer running on their PCs all day, every day.

Kewl Software! If you're a person that travels a lot with your mobile PC or you simple deal with overseas people all the time then you must get confused with the time, etc.

WorldTimer is designed to make this job easier. It hides in your system tray but in a click of a button you can find out the time in a different part of the globe without the need for calculations.

You can choose to display as many regions as you want provided you have enough space on your screen of course. In addition, you also have a count down timer in case you get lost in time :).

The cosmetics are also customisable to suit your taste. If you want to make sure you have the correct time, WorldTimer can sync your PC clock for you at predetermined intervals.
