SymmTime is a desktop clock that does a bit more than just show you the time. It also allows you to synchronize the system clock over the Internet with via the Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers, as well as set up alarms and customize its look.

One of the first things that impressed me about this utility was the large number of customization possibilities. You can not only choose between an analog and a digital clock, but also from a variety of sizes, colors and styles, with or without displaying the date as well. You can even set up the default screen location for the clock (the aptly named “Make this My Favorite Place” option).

Setting up alarms is also pretty handy with SymmTime, and the app lets you choose your own sound file to be used for the alarm. Unfortunately, only MP3 and WAV files are supported and you can't set up recurrent alarms for certain days of the week.

Anyway, since we're basically dealing with a clock, the most important feature of SymmTime is synchronization. It allows you to choose when and how often you want to have the time synchronized and what synchronization servers to use. It even lets you view a detailed report of the synchronization status. Additionally, the app allows you to view the time in any timezone and it can be set to display multiple clocks, each synchronized individually with time servers of your choice.

As you can see, SymmTime is more than just a simple desktop clock, and it offers many handy additional features and functions. I highly recommend it, especially since it also doesn’t cost a cent.

Hi, I have two screens called display one and two. Number two being my large one 40 inch samsung. I will like my clock to be on the large sreen and even after locating the clock on the large sreen and clicking on MAKE THIS MY FAVORITE PLACE it goes back to sreen number one when I shut it down and restart. Could you help me?
