EarthTime is an easy-to-use Windows tool that shows the local time for any location in the world, with the help of a user-friendly and intuitive interface.
In fact, the interface of the app is actually a map of the world, showing the position of any configured location, along with information such as city and country, local time, day and date.
EarthTime comprises a database of more than 3000 cities from all over the world and it lets you see the Earth at both day and night.
Configuring new locations is as easy as pie because you only need to find the country and the city you're looking for. EarthTime allows you to set up a list of the cities to track, along with the text to display in the main window.
A tool addressed to those with a bit more computer knowledge concerns the left, right and double-click actions to be performed in the main window, as the program prompts users to provide the command-line and the parameters for each option.
Last but not least, EarthTime also features an alarm tool that enables you to set up alarms for each configured city. Available options include time, date and weekday, with the possibility to play a sound or display a message at the configured time.
EarthTime is far from being a resource hog and, what's more, it works like a charm on all Windows versions. Furthermore, it has absolutely no problem to run on 64-bit versions of the operating system.
All things considered, EarthTime is quite a great way to see local time for any location around the globe. It has most of the things you'd expect from this kind of app, including an attractive interface, intuitive customization options and a large database of cities from all over the world.

This time-management software can help you set up a very detailed employee work time scheme, thanks to a wide array of specialized tools.
Maintaining an exact track of time when running a business and its subsequent aspects, is a key factor in keeping an effective employee management time scheme. From manual clocking using pen and paper to biometric devices that automatically record the spent time, achieving such tasks can be done in multiple ways, via a wide range of software. CheckTime is here to provide such functionality, by offering users a comprehensive package that addresses employee time attendance management in businesses.
One of the first aspects that came to our attention while testing CheckTime is its layout design, which we believe manages to increase handling efficiency, by having all features neatly arranged into both the adjacent side-panel, as well as the top menus.
Users can easily determine where their required features might be, by simply having a look at the main categories from the side-panel. These each contain sub-items, making the entire process of choosing the required tools, far easier.
Looking at the potential issues encountered while testing the app, one prominent aspect was the persistence of a certain lag during use. We verified this behavior on several machines, and we experienced it on all systems.
Indeed, this could be dependent on one’s system and corresponding performance, but, that aside, we fear that when dealing with large data sets and multiple entries, this lag could become exacerbated, and even cause the app to completely freeze.
If you seek an app that’s designed for helping you achieve a better, more efficient time attendance monitoring when using modern, biometric clocking devices, CheckTime could very well fill those shoes.

A countdown timer that comes with basic features such as milliseconds or hours and allows you to start or stop the watch by pressing the preset hotkeys.
OnlyStopWatch is a very simple stopwatch that displays minimum information and offers basic tools to control the timer.
The main window of this application is kept simple, making it highly accessible for a broad range of users, regardless of their PC skills or previous experience with similar programs.
The interface is nothing special, but it's focused especially on the time, showing a chronometer with milliseconds and a few options at the top of the window.

A small utility that compares the local clock with a remote online one and updates the time, also allowing you to use it as a time server.
If you want to keep your computer clock accurate, but you are disappointed with the built-in Windows tools, you should have a look at Atom Time Synchronizer.

An application designed to log the working hours of your employees, as well as other details on their activities, acting as a modern time card replacement.
Any business relies on careful monitoring of the activity of its workers. Although most individuals are trustworthy and honest, that does not mean a powerful software will not benefit your performance. FlexiServer is an employee monitoring tool that offers multiple features and options to keep track of activity.
The application is quick to install, although it does have some requirements that are distinct for this type of software. First of all, you must install the server component on the manager computer which does not have to be a dedicated server. Then, a station part should be fitted to the worker's machine.
Despite that the software provides a GUI for the server-part, most of its features can be accessed by logging into an address sent to your e-mail account. While the primary interface tackles most of the technical settings, the web interface provides the most information and monitoring tools.
The software offers an automated system for all the registered workers, a monitoring tool that detects both idle time and regular breaks. To avoid privacy encroachments, there is a private mode, with which users can complete personal tasks and not be monitored.
Screenshots are taken at regular intervals, and keystrokes/mouse clicks are counted. However, the application does not collect data on the content of the activity, although e-mails can be saved for logging purposes.
A useful feature is the fact that you can link the information gathered by the application with payroll software. It saves time and improves the accuracy of the billable hours.
In conclusion, FlexiServer is a tool for managers and business owners to supervise the daily activity of their workers in a minimal degree of invasiveness. It offers good value for money, and it can adapt to the size of your staff and company.
