As Benjamin Franklin once said, ‘Time is money’ and this applies even more so in today’s world. With our busy schedules these days, time is of the utmost importance and thus clocks are an integral part of our lives. In ancient times, when there were no clocks, people used to measure time with sun dials and sand hourglasses but it’s a different story now. Now, everything has gone digital and clocks are available in thousands of formats and designs. Apart from checking the time on mobile phones, the computer clock is a common way to check the time especially for people who spend most of their time in front of the computer. By default, Microsoft has added a small clock in most of its operating systems but in Windows 8, user can use it in many different ways using Windows 8 apps.
Windows 8 Apps is a great way to get a lot of extra features without installing any heavy applications. Since the last few months I have been reviewing some of the best (and free) Windows 8 Apps for my visitors like DailyMotion app, eBay shopping app, CyberLink PowerDVD and many other popular Windows 8 apps from the Apps Store. In this article, I am going to review the top free Windows 8 clock apps for Windows 8 users. Hope you will enjoy them.
