If Windows already features a system clock, what's the point of installing another one?

The answer is simple: ClocX is much more than just a simple replacement for the Windows standard clock. It features extra functionality such as an alarm system and can be customized with literally hundreds of different skins. ClocX can be configured to stay on top of other apps or be pinned to desktop, providing you with a nicer and more comfortable way to check time.

As stated before, ClocX includes a handful of skins to change the clock's appearance, although many of them are simple color variations of the same skin. Other visual tweakings are transparency and size. The alarm tool is perfect for setting up small reminders and can even be programmed to trigger an action like playing audio o video, launching an application or shutting down the PC. The program also features a calendar but this one doesn't have support for planning tasks.

Finally, Clocx will apparently support external plug-ins but this feature is unfortunately still under development, as you can tell from the program's configuration menu.

A fully customizable clock with interesting extra features, although not as developed as they should be.

ClocX is analog clock application for Windows. It is programmed in C++ language, which ensures small executable binary, optimal speed and low memory usage.

See what it features for you:

  • Antialiasing (3 levels: off / method 1 / method 2)
  • 256 levels of transparency with special mouse-over transparency function
  • Changable and configurable styles (24 PNGs and 7 BMPs in standard installation, additional 98 PNGs and 69 BMPs available in full instalation or in PNG/BMP packs)
  • Per-pixel alphablending for PNG backgrounds
  • Advanced window options (unmovable, always on top, pin to desktop, click through, ...)
  • Priority settings
  • Configurable alarms with ability to show alarm window, play sound, execute application and shutdown computer
  • Simple calendar
