Thanks Jonathan Plutchok

Setting IE to work online fixed the failed to connect for me.

Installed ok on Windows Vista Premium. Everything seems to be working except the day/night shading doesn't show. The curve is there but no dark and light, everything is just light.

It is a useful reference tool, if you do business in various timezones or travel a fair amount; however, for a simple clock program, 16 megs, pre-installation, is much too large.

The code should be looked at in order to make the code more efficient and smaller.

No luck with this one. Downloaded and read the Readme file, then clicked the executable file which unzipped, extracted files and created the GOTD setup icon on the desktop. Clicked the setup icon and nothing happened even with admin permissions. Downloaded again and replaced the setup files, still no luck. Failed to install in WIN7 Home Premium. Strange! Thanks, but unable to evaluate this one.

Doesn't take into account of national daylight savings, so between New Zealand and Holland, depending on the time of year, it could be as much as 2 hours out.

Is there a limit to the number of cities you can add? Because I find that after a certain point, sometimes it adds the city you want, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes certain cities are on the map after restarting, sometimes they aren't.

Installed and it looks very good, however it freezes my computer every time I like to change present time zone into something else.
It looks similar to www.24timezones.com where I have it in my tab running and does not require any computer resources to run.

It is good. No problem displaying the world map.
It has a calendar function.
You can configure it to pop up balloon showing 8 cities' times.

Not necessary to synchronise it to an atomic clock online time server. We ordinary folk won't miss much if our PC's clock is off 2 seconds. Our lives will still carry on as per normal.

This is an OK clock. Not great.

Issues are
1 the desktop digital clocks can't be resized
2 no individualized coloring, just the default colors.
3 missing the ability to coordinate time across zones. When the time is 3:15 PM in Serbia, what time is it in Belarus? and Hawaii?
4 missing holidays
5 missing alarms for the calendar (calendar annotations)

The calendar is - well, nothing impressive.

Qlock.com free version offers more options than today's giveaway. And for 15$, the retail for today's give away, Qlock offers even more options.

Crave World Clock does what it says it will do but needs more features, colors, alarms, local and zone holidays to justify purchase.

For example in Russia, Christmas is celebrated in January while in US it is in December. It would be great if the digital clock widget were given an user option to border the clock for say Moscow to some color say Red when it is a national holiday. Or green for regular 8AM to 6PM for regular business hours? or set a dotted border for when a country is on DST? many in Europe now do DST.

National holidays in various countries would be good for business and trading when the clock were tied to an annotatable calendar. The calendar does not annotate making it nearly useless. I need to connect or do something like renew my business license in Darwin AU on July 22, 2016.

It just needs more work, though whether there is a market for these features is an unknown.

Install on my WinXP32 OK.
On first impressions it looks like a handy little program to have. Although I'm not sure about the accuracy of the world map, in particular the Latitude of the Sun which looks a tad too low and below the tropics.
It has a low registry foot print although it save some layout settings. Why some programs save settings in the registry rather than a separate data file puzzles me. I would have thought a data file would be quicker rather than waiting for a chance to lock the registry for access particularly if the system has a lot of files queuing for the registry.
Thank you GOTD!

I like this clock except for one thing I can't get to work. It's supposedly possible to set a list of cities whose times appear when you hover over the clock icon on the task bar. I did create a nonempty list of cities on the Balloon tab of the Program Options form, so it's not that.

but neither is as good.

@Lennard Gill #9: I've had "failed to connect" problems with giveaways too. I'm not at my home PC right now, but I vaguely recall that the problem had something to do with MS Internet Explorer having been set to work offline somehow, and resetting IE to work online only fixed it. This despite the fact that I only use Firefox. So try that, or search for the full text of the error message on the Web for more answers. Good luck.

@MikeR #8: Thanks for your warning about your hilarious typo. I'll type very carefully from now on.

Easy to solve. Your firewall policy is blocking the internet access for the GOATD setup. Depending on your firewall software, look for blocked programs and give programs from this site a change to connect. HTH

Nice to have. A bit too memory consuming for running around the clock in the background (30-50 MB) - but okay on computers with 4GB RAM or more.

I like the 'Quick Time Finder' function and wish I could maximize the programs window. The wallpaper display should stretch from corner to corner on 16:9 monitors with no black bars on top and bottom.

Will keep it. Thank you GotD and Reflection Software Solutions.

Hi everybody, can you suggest a cure for my problem?? Recently any Programme I try to install from GAOD (after unzipping) comes up with a Box that says "Failed to Connect" any other Installation of any other file from any other site works OK and if I download & Install on my Wife's Computer it installs OK, so a problem on mine but only on this site, Help.

Reply   |   Comment by Lennard Gill  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

"I try to install from GAOD"

Do you use a firewall? From Windows or another kind(ZoneAlarm/AVG . . ?
If so, then you have to change the rules of the firewall.
Or you can test it: take down the firewall and after that install directly the GOTD-software. DON'T surf the internet
If the installation starts and is successful , then the firewall has a rule to block the Setup from GOTD.
Depending on which kind of firewall you have, search the internet how to change it's rules.

After the test: restart the firewall or even better: restart Windows ! ! !

Long-established proven software that works exactly as intended; I have no idea why Karl at post #2 had a problem with it.

I've been using an earlier version of Crave World Clock for many a year and no, it isn't meant to be Google Earth and no, it isn't meant to be a work of graphic art. Just a clock. A global clock -- and an excellent one, too.

It can be used as a screensaver and, where this latest version is concerned, in tandem with various gizmos and widgets kindly added in by the developer, though in my case they're not necessary. I have a shortcut to the app in my Windows 7 Quick Launch (the lovely old Vista-style QL that I brought back to replace the pin-to-taskbar nonsense from Microsoft-Knows-Better) and I hit that shortcut whenever I need a visual time-check on whichever cities I've added to the map -- and it's surprising, how frequently that is.

Verdict: Great software, well-known developer and, today, an outstanding bargain for any and every computer user. Just be careful if you email anyone a recommendation: I did so to a female friend a few years back and a typo meant the second letter of the word 'clock' went missing. She emailed back with a quizzical: 'So that's what you think I'm craving. . ?'

Downloaded and installed just fine. I use Desktop Earth as a wallpaper. I was hoping to blend world clock with it. The 6 different time zone clocks I setup over took the wallpaper. Even choosing the small size clocks didn't help much. I deleted the software. It would be better if all GMT time zones were displayed across the top or bottom of any wallpaper. Finding a city or country would be a simply glazed across all world time zones. Leaving the options of putting a clock on wallpaper, map or in a system tray balloon.

I had another version from a January 2010 giveaway on my previous WinXP system, which I was, of course, unable to install on my new system. I agree with the criticisms of #2, but it's still useful to me. I'm one of those dinosaurs who still chats on IRC and this programme makes it very easy for me to see what time it is for the people I know and chat with in various places around the world. No doubt there are many other ways to do the same thing, but this way worked fine for me on my XP machine, so I'm going to install it on my new Win7 computer.

I had version 1.6 from an earlier giveaway. I choose to install this into the same folder. It installed with no problems. The program is a world clock. It's not something I use everyday but it's nice. It's set up to start with your computer when you turn it on so you will want to turn that off if you don't want it to run all the time.

You can read a review from Ashraf on an earlier version here..

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

A company without name and address and a strong mission:

Mission

Our mission is to offer you high quality software applications and excellent customer service which you can leverage in making most out of your business.
(*)

In some WebPage applications there must be a field: "Fill in your vision and your mission", with 10 pre-formulated texts about/mission/vision/customers/business...

This time something new, not really. It was GiveAway in 2010, 2011 and now.

Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/crave-world-clock-pro/

Again a "Pro" version and not these lousy "Amateur" versions.

After start a resizable world map opens with night&day zone and a a "twilight" zone, which is simply plain wrong. Dear programmer, the twilight zone differs from equator region to the pole regions.

And a second remark to the day&night world. There are better images with a higher resolution in the WEB, take different maps for different resolutions. Take a winter/spring/summer/autumn map. There is a lot to improve. And give the user the chance to hide the the menu bar and the title bar...

This program uses the system time, you cannot define another time server.

To this map you can add analog or digital clocks (in my eyes a bad layout of the clocks, which are not resizable), you can see a calender, but not choose the the begin of the week Sunday/Monday.

A simple world map, with a lot of possible improvements, graphically not the best. In my case the system freezes, when I want to install this worldmap as wallpaper.

(*)mission not accomplished, this is no "high quality".

Uninstalled via reboot.

I downloaded an earlier giveaway of this in September 2011 because I have friends and relatives all over the planet and working out when someone would be free to Skype (actually, it was MSN at the time) can be quite a nightmare...

The neatest feature of this software was allowing me to have a small, semi-transparent, customizable line of digital clocks with their time zones on my desktop allowing me to see the time in as many cities/zones as I needed.

I'd tried a few free alternatives and frankly none were as good as this so if you need a world time clock I would recommend this without hesitation: it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Also, as I think I mentioned in my comment at the time, any piece of software called "Crave clock" should be downloaded just for the unintentional comedy value...
