Clock by vanSoest.it
Current versionClock latest version is 126.96.36.199
Main feature overview
Clock is the upper most program always showing you the current time and date of more than 3 self selected cities in selectable time zones. Clock is thus ideal for companies having multiple offices in different time-zones as the Windows 10 clock is limited to only three clocks. Clock can be made invisible by hovering the mouse over Clock. This also allows for clicking-trough, so the applications beneath Clock can be accessed without moving or minimizing Clock. Clock is free.

HistoryThe first version of Clock was a 16 bit Windows 98 and 2000 version written in Visual Basic. Upon noticing that Clock launched an entire 16 bit environment (WOW) on Windows XP machines, it was time to redesign the Clock application using 32 bit Turbo Delphi. Now we have entered the 64 bit arena with Windows 7, 8 or 10. Again Microsoft came up with a 32 bit environment, called (WOW64), and loads it for 32 bit applications. So it was time to rewrite Clock with Visual Studio C# so it can fully use the 64 bit .net platform.
