Just when I think I have found every type of clock software on the internet I come across another find, called Vector Clock, to add to my collection. Today I am excited to bring to you, not just one clock, but a collection of FREE vector alarm clocks that are fully scaleable, fully customizable, requires no installation (portable app) and just plain downright looks awesome.
There are four things that makes these FREE Vector Alarm Clocks tick:
Customizable – Vector Clock is customizable. There are detailed Clock Options in the settings. It also nicely integrates with Your desktop – You can choose to pin the clock to desktop, use it as a normal window, keep it on top or even force it to foreground (when in click-through mode). Plus some other options, such as “hide on mouse over”, “start with Windows” and “clock transparency” configuration.
Alarm Function – Lets You set up a message and sound to play on due time (wav, mp3, midi). You can use it also as a simple countdown timer – after checking on the “Now plus” option, clock will compute a future alarm time based on delay you define (eg. after 5 minutes).
Time Zones – Allows You to set each clock into the different Time Zone (eg. New York, Paris, Tokyo). This way, You can have a handy World Clock on Your desktop. Date on each clock indicates, if there is yesterday, today or tomorrow. Clock in time zone automatically computes shift of Daylight Time Saving (DST). Time zone labels can be customized.
Portable – Each clock is just 1MB single EXE and you can put it on the USB stick to carry it around. No installation is required – just put it wherever You want (eg. on desktop) – and run it. For bundle of more than one clocks, a convenient installer and uninstaller is included, which lets you choose whether to install clocks as a native Windows App or as a Portable App (on external drive for example).
