Crave World Clock – 20 Free Licenses Giveaway

image“Young men know the rules, but old men know the exceptions.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes.

So, being a grumpy “old man”, from time to time I make an exception to the rule that I don’t get involved in software license giveaways. And, this is one of those “relax the rule” times – with good reason.

Manoj Shinde, the developer of DiskAnalyzer Pro, and currently the principal of Reflection Software Solutions based in Aurangabad, India – recently offered to provide 20 free licenses for his company’s, Crave World Clock, to Tech Thoughts readers. I accepted Manoj’s offer gratefully.

Reflection Software describes Crave World Clock as follows:

Crave World Clock is a must-have world clock software for people who need to keep track of current time in different cities and time zones around the world. The current time can be displayed on a real world map along with day and night effects.

You can add cities of your choice on the world map. You can set the world clock as your desktop wallpaper or use it as a screensaver. You can add analog clock and digital clock on your desktop to keep track of time for multiple cities.

So, how would you benefit from installing Crave World Clock on your system? It’s fair to acknowledge that perhaps you wouldn’t – but, if the global business environment is the place where you hang your hat – like I do – Crave World Clock offers a number of features which could make your life just a little easier.

Let me give you a simple personal example – it’s not at all unusual for me to speak directly with developers, software vendors, or service providers by telephone or Skype – from such diverse places as China, Romania, Croatia, India, America, Australia, Turkey……. Since global business operates 24/7, it’s obviously important to be aware of local times, and Crave World Clock has made that just a little easier for me.

As the “fact facts” below indicate – the application offers much more than simple acting as a global local time reminder.


Fast facts:

Set world clock with real world map as desktop wallpaper – The real world map with multiple city time displayed on it can be used as a desktop wallpaper while the software will be minimized to system tray. So you can easily track current time for multiple cities right on your desktop without much interference in your work.

Use world clock with current time as your desktop screensaver – Crave World Clock can be used as a desktop screensaver. So when your PC is idle, it will display world map with current time for selected cities, day / night effects . It will be updated every minute to reflect current time.

Place analog and digital clocks on your desktop for multiple cities – You can add multiple analog or digital clocks on your desktop to see current time for the cities of your choice. You can choose a clock theme for the clock from a pre-defined list of stunning clock themes.

Add reminders regarding your “things to do” for different time zones – Use the reminder tool to get notifications (with sound) about your phone calls, follow ups or things to do related with cities around the world.

Quickly find time for any city with Time Finder tool – You can use the time finder tool which you can access with a shortcut key to quickly find current time for any city or country. Just type in the city or country name then current date/time will be displayed for that city.

Multi-year calendar view at a glance – This tool displays calendar for a year at a glance so you need not browse through months to refer to future dates or dates falling in other months.

Quick access to International dialing codes – If you frequently need to make international calls then you can refer to international dialing codes list for all countries available with a shortcut key.

System requirements: Windows XP, Vista, Win 7

You can download Crave World Clock software and try the full version free for 14 days.

Download at: Reflection Software Solutions

Purchase: $14 USD.

  1. Hey Bill,

    Nice giveaway,dont count me in.I know your rule of not starting software giveaways but I dont know why you created the rule?What happened?

    • Hey Neeraj,

      Simple really – it’s far too much work for the limited reward. Virtually every day I get at least one request for a giveaway. And, virtually every day – I say NO.

      This one is a little different – I found this app very helpful.

      Good to hear from you – hope life is treating you well. 🙂



  2. Paul Andrew Russell

    That looks so cool and useful, Bill. Pity I’m running Linux Mint. I’d have loved a copy.

  3. Bob Slyker

    Hey Bill,

    Sounds like a good tool to have handy on the PC.

    Thanks Bill!



    • Hey Bob,

      It saves me the bother of trying to remember the various time zones. Given that the old memory is not what it once was – not a bad thing. 🙂

      Good to hear from you.



  4. Such a program is looking. When you receive your message, I decided to participate for the license. I hope that interest me.

    Yours truly

  5. Stfan

    Cool app, count me in. Would like to enhance my desktop with multiple clocks showing different time.


  6. Mal

    Hey Bill,
    Very cool, please count me in. Sometime, I don’t even know what the time is here. But that is usually after a “big night out” lol.

    • Hey Mal,

      When I originally wrote this piece (yesterday), part of it read – it’s 3 AM in OZ (which it was), and I illustrated that with a cursor on Sydney. I then went on to say – so, I don’t expect to hear from Mal, John W., John M., or any other Australian regular readers for a while yet. 🙂

      But, in editing (today), I lost the blasted graphic so the rest of it didn’t make much sense. Bummer!

      It’s a great little app – specially designed for those “where the hell am I” mornings. You’ll love it. 🙂

    Hi Bill,
    Yes count me in also please. As Mal can confirm those of us downunder have to be always looking at world times as otherwise it just gets so darn confusing trying to work out whether its still yesterday or day or night in other parts of the world. 😀

    As I click on my world clock now to see what time it is in Toronto, but going by the time I think by now Bill you will be at the pub.

    • Hey John,

      I hear ya! the International Date Line was always a hassle for me. I found I had to stress – my local time – my local date – when communicating overseas. The application’s day/night feature makes all of that easier. If you’re in the dark – I’ll talk to you when the Sun comes up – sorta thing.

      The ability to generate City/Location info, as John has done here re:Toronto (for those who aren’t aware), is one of the features included in Crave World Clock. Nice job, John.

      Now, I’m outta here (Pub time) – but, the Tablet will be keep me connected. Gotta love connectivity. 🙂



  14. The software appears to be very effiecient and user friendly with plenty of useful features.

    Very awesome, Thanks for sharing… 🙂

    • Glad to see you join in Brennan.

      BTW, dropped by your Blog – very cool – nice touch with the pen.

      Keep following your acting ambition – don’t let anyone dissuade you. Perseverance always pays. Always. 🙂

    thank please count me in.

  17. delenn13

    Yes, I could use some Time . 🙂

    • Hey Delenn13,

      Totally amazing performance! 1.5 Million views might seem like a lot but, it should be 100 Million views. Even that wouldn’t do it justice.

      Nice play on words, BTW. 🙂



  18. David Wallis

    Thanks Bill – hope I get lucky.

    Have a great weekend.

    Best regards / David.

    • Hi David,

      You are lucky – you live in one of the BEST countries in the world. 🙂

      Still, let’s bump that luck up a bit.

      Always good to hear from you.

    • Crave away big fella.

      Nice play on words, BTW. Needed that chuckle. 🙂

      Trust all is well down your way.



      • hipockets

        “. . . . big fella . . . .”

        That’s why I’m called, “hipockets”. I’m five foot eighteen inches tall. I suppose in Canada that would be about 2 meters. :>)

        • Hey Hipockets,

          Yep, dead on – 1.98 meters. So, “big fella” fits. But “hipockets”has a special zing – beats “big fella” hands down. 🙂

    A cool soft that really makes windows look great by adding clocks for multiple cities and thus avoid me to call another country and having a voice telling me: HEY DID YOU NOTICED THAT THE TIME HERE IS 2 AM IN THE MORNING.
