Show clocks in the palette
The Clocks palette lets you display any number of digital or analog clocks and show the time in different cities and time zones with or without seconds, weekday, date, date change, time zone, offset from UTC, and offset from your local time.
World Clock Deluxe lets you freely customize the way the palette looks and behaves: you can choose font and type size, use light text on a dark background, adjust opacity and dial size, arrange clocks horizontally or vertically, and decide whether it should float over all open windows, behave as normal window, or lie on your desktop.
World Clock Deluxe lets you minimize the Clocks palette's size by rotating clocks, that is by displaying them alternately. You can adjust the rotation speed and add a transition effect if you like.
To gain a quick overview of clocks while they rotate, simply click the current clock in the palette: a pop-up menu will list your clocks.
Show clocks in the menu bar
Displaying clocks in the menu bar can be a good way of having them always to hand without taking up precious space on your desktop.
You can add the World Clock Deluxe icon to the menu bar and use it to quickly display your clocks. Alternatively, you can show a single clock (your local clock for instance) or rotate multiple clocks in the menu bar. Either digital or analog clocks can be shown: clicking the clock in the menu bar will give you an immediate overview of your clocks.
Show clocks in the Dock
With World Clock Deluxe you can display digital or analog clocks in the Dock. If you show multiple clocks, they will rotate in the Dock.
The Dock icon lets you also quickly gain an overview of clocks: press and hold it and your clocks will appear in the Dock menu.
If you aren't entangled by the many possibilities offered you by the World Clock Deluxe Dock icon and always crave for more space in the Dock, there's no problem: World Clock Deluxe lets you hide its icon in the Dock if you want.
View daylight-saving time transitions
World Clock Deluxe shows your clocks' daylight-saving time transitions so that you can quickly see which cities are about to turn clocks forward or backward and when daylight-saving time will exactly start or end for each of them.
Simply display the Clocks palette pop-up menu, the Dock icon menu, or the menu associated with the World Clock Deluxe icon or clock in the menu bar: clocks that are about to change are marked with an asterisk (*), while the DST Transitions submenu lists when (and in how many days) each city will switch to daylight-saving or standard time.
Display world times and time zones
With World Clock Deluxe you can easily display world times (e.g. Coordinated Universal Time, Greenwich Mean Time, Internet Time) and time zones (e.g. EST, CET, ACST) in the Clocks palette, in the Dock, and in the menu bar.
World Clock Deluxe lists over 200 time zones and world times from International Date Line West (IDLW) to Line Islands Time (LINT), from UTC-12 to UTC+14.
World Clock Deluxe lets you easily organize your clocks so that you can always have a good overview of them.
You can associate colors and labels to clocks to quickly single out your local clock or different groups of clocks. You can sort clocks alphabetically or by time, longitude, longitude offset, or label. You can finally show different clocks in the Clocks palette, in the menu bar, and in the Dock and hide seldom used clocks.
Plan international meetings
Planning an online chat, a conference call, or a videoconference with people located in different cities around the world can be difficult, especially if you need to find a time when everyone is at work.
With its Meeting Planner, World Clock Deluxe allows you to easily identify the best time for a meeting across multiple time zones.
Simply pick a date from the calendar and add the locations of the participants: thanks to color coding you'll see at a glance when the best time to schedule your meeting is.
The Meeting Planner is highly configurable and lets you easily copy meeting details to the Clipboard so that you can email them to all participants.
Calculate time conversions
Often make phone calls to another country at a pre-set time in the other country or join conference calls set up by people in other countries? Calculating the corresponding local time is simple arithmetic, but it nevertheless generally causes a lot of head scratching and always the inmost doubt: after all, have I got it right?
World Clock Deluxe helps you with its Time Converter which calculates corresponding dates and times in different cities.
The Time Converter lets you also calculate time conversions involving time zones (e.g. EST, CET, ACST) or world times (e.g. Coordinated Universal Time, Greenwich Mean Time, Internet Time) and allows you to copy conversion results to the Clipboard so that you can use them in other applications.
Show the weather
With World Clock Deluxe you can quickly show the weather all over the world.
World Clock Deluxe downloads weather reports from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration servers and displays wind conditions, visibility, sky conditions, weather phenomena (rain, snow, hail, thunderstorms, fog, sandstorms, ... ), temperature, windchill or heat index, dew point and relative humidity, atmospheric pressure. Retrieved weather reports can be reviewed, copied, and saved as RTF.
