Your clock widget is excellent -- it incorporates exactly what's needed, in terms of displaying the current time ... and now allowing the user to set an alarm (what else should a clock really do?) ... and allowing full customization of the appearance so that anyone with image-creating software (from the free "Paint" that ships with Windows, to the professional release of PhotoShop, to user-created rendering software) can make his or her own unique clock without any understanding of (or need to understand) the underlying program. It's the perfect utility for the stated purpose!
Thanks much for the great product,
Dave

I'd love to see a way to set a timezone. Because of a bug in my Palm platform, I have to leave my timezone in my old home and I'm away for a year so I hardly use my PC clock now. A way to set an offset (or reading the Unix TZ variable format) would really help that! Nice tool, otherwise! Thanks.

a nifty little clock. the skins are professional looking, i like the varying refresh rate, can really make the difference, however i dont know if it's just with my PC but if you set it so you can click through it you are unable to access it to make further changes, not even through the task bar.

On your Alwact Clock main page, you may want to mention that the app doesn't work with 64-bit versions of Windows. That will save people like me the trouble of downloading it and trying to install it. ;?)

Your software is very good and works perfectly on my laptop (WinXP SP3)... Thanks!!
Just one thing: as a wish list, would it be possible, in next releases, to lock clock position (sometimes, working on my desktop, I accidentally move it...)?

Very nice. One suggestion might be to allow for locking the Alwact Clock in position. Also, I do not have an icon in the taskbar or tray. Therefore, if I enable the clickthrough I'm afraid I'll never be able to access the menu. Any suggestions on this?

Very nice widget. It would be nice to be able to lock it in position, however. When clickthrough is enabled, however, how does one access the contextual menu to disable it, for example.

Excellent program !!

It's simple, functional, really well-designed (program and skins) and the appearance is fully customizable without any programming knowledge.

I made my own skin using template set on your site. the result can be found on Skinbase (skin : Pocket Gold).
On this point, I had problems to obtain a correct alignment of the needles and the appropriate ratio between needles and dial.
It would be useful to skin-makers to have more informations in the template on how the program sets the aligments.

Thanks all for your comments!

@Steve: It's odd that the icon is not present on the system tray, I see it on the systems I tried it on, that's the way I am able to get back to the non-click-through mode. In fact, I updated the Tips section on 6/27/2013 to mention that more clearly.
