SymmTime 2007 shows users the exact time anywhere in the world. Once it is set up on your computer, you can customize the number of clocks, time zones, clock faces and labels anytime you want. Use the customized time zone clocks when you set up conference calls with offices in far-off countries to be sure you set the correct time for each participant. You can also make sure that you don’t mistakenly wake your loved one, who is several time zones away on a business trip.

A wide variety of clock choices including new stylish analog and digital clock faces have been added to SymmTime 2007. The clock faces in the clock panel can be tailored in various ways, including: 1) time zones/cities of your choice, 2) number of clocks on the panel, 3) analog (with clock face and hands) or digital, 4) 24-hour or AM/PM, 5) with or without second hand/seconds counter, 6) with or without city/time zone, 7) colors of the panel and of the clocks themselves, and 8) size, style and color of lettering. You can make any of these changes independent of one another, in any order.

The United States will experience a longer Daylight Saving Time period this year. SymmTime has incorporated not only the U.S. Daylight Saving Time change, but also the Daylight Saving schedules of every country in the world – many of which have changed as well. To make setting up and configuring SymmTime even easier, the online help documentation has also been expanded.

Both current and new SymmTime users can simply download the free software from the web and follow the very simple, intuitive, installation wizard. SymmTime 2007 automatically overrides any prior versions and can be used in Microsoft® Windows PC operating systems, including Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows 2003 and Windows XP.
