Choosing a Software ClockHere is a checklist of some important considerations when choosing a clock:

  • Does the clock have a user friendly design using drag and drop?
  • Does the clock feature Groups of Time Zones?
  • How easily can you look up and select new Time Zones?
  • Can you easily rename the Time Zones to suit you?
  • Does the clock update Windows Time Zones?
  • Does the Clock tell you groups of times for any time, date and zone?
  • Does the clock have an update program in place?
  • Does the clock include a database of past present and future time zone rules?
  • What data does the clock use?  (Registry is not up to date with all time zones and is therefore not a good basis for a time zone clock.)
  • Does the clock generate meeting plans in a flash?


Here are some examples of customer feedback we have received for the earlier TimesOwn version:

“I found the places I wanted, edited the names to suit me and now they are always just a click away. Well done Cheqsoft!”

“I have tried three other World Clocks over the past 12 months, including TimesOwn, while the others have apparently, more to offer the consumer, I have finally come back and registered with you. Yours being the most user friendly. It tells me all I want to know re the time in cities I have contact with.   Thank you.”

“TimesOwn is going EXCELLENTLY for me, thank you! I am web editor for a children’s literature site with a chat room. We have chatsters from all over the world and a regular chat every Tuesday that overseas people cannot attend–because they’re mostly asleep!  So I’m planning a Worldwide Chat at a time here when people in Europe, Africa and Asia can attend. You can see how valuable TimesOwn has been for me in setting that up.  Thank you again, and THANK YOU for TimesOwn!”

“Where did you hear about TimesOwn?  Did an internet search for this type of software, found many, settled on this one for it’s ease of interface and use. What do you like about TimesOwn?  The interface is very efficient. Having all the locations that I need to do business with on a daily basis is perfect.”
