It stinks...bring back the free version. Try a little honesty and stop misleading people with the free version which no longer exists. Thirty dollars for what?? The voice is as dull and lifeless as your new design. Now that is my review...my second review, let's see if this one gets past your censors.

There's a japanese program that's a little hard to find but is completely free and extremely minimal in resources and download size that does just what this one does. I would even guess this program is based on the source code from that, since it has the exact same capabilities of the variables you can enter to be displayed in the clock tray, not a single added feature. Then they think someone would actually pay $19 for this, when someone else actually did most of the work for them, and for free? Also it's heavier in memory use than it would have. Bad product in all possible ways.

Boy, these other reviews are really old. Just go to the publishers site and get the free classic edition. I've been using it for a while now and it is unobtrusive and you can see what day it is in a glance.

I really like AlphaClock because you can customize what you want to display: date, day of the week, time, free memory... I also like the reminders: I have surprised my wife once letting her a nice message while I was traveling.

I rate this clock only "2" because :
- the foolish price
- the stupid features like "speaking clock" & " reminders".

I like it on the other hand because it is the only clock that is able to display the ISO Week numbers.

I do not know how other reviewers in here compare clocks because I think that Alfaclock is way better than those mentined in the reviews.

I will however NEVER buy Alfaclock as long as it comes with this stupid speaking clock and reminder features.

$19??? You've got to be kidding! Try Tclock for free.

Boy, it is easy to spot the author in the reviews below. Hey, if your company is named Alfasoft, don't write a review under the name Alfaball.

the only thing i need badly and i would pay for it is the longhorn style clock, with a CAPITAL number for the hour , followed by the minutes in uppercase in smaller font like the AM/PM suffix in lower case

Dang man,
Don't give up your day job for this! A whopping $20's for this? Bro ... you have to be on drugs! $5 bucks might tempt a slew of uknowing fools, but don't come here with the attempt to make it to the big time! Next time, research the competition and do something that cannot be aquired by freeware!

Sorry, not worth $20. I think a fair price, if any, would be $2.50, and that's only if it didn't have a nag screen (and only if I needed this sort of tool, that is). You all know how to find much better, free alternatives that are much more customizable. Don't get greedy - it's a small, simple utility! 2 for your efforts though.

According to my needs, the development of AlfaClock goes in the opposite direction:
I do not want all these add-ons, I just want an improved WindowsXP clock.
This means with weeknumbers in the caledar and the possibility to synchronise the computer clock over a dial-up connection. ALl the rest is useless, unneeded, unwanted.
The trial version with nagware is ridiculous: If one wants to try something, then let me doing it for 30 days without being nagged by old fashion reminders at every startup.
AlfaClock is not of interrest to me and it looks like it will never become.

I really wish the people that leave messages on this site would learn proper English, so annoying to try to decipher what these people are trying to say.

I agree with many others here.... nice enough program, but not worth $20 --- especially when there are so many comparable free versions available.
