Desktop Calendar Clock App For Chrome and Chrome OS

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The aptly named Calendar Clock is a small Chrome App that does what it sets out to: show you at a glance date and time information.

It’s the epitome of basic; it doesn’t revolutionise computing nor does it do anything more exotic than scratch a common itch.

You won’t find Google Calendar integration baked in, and you can’t add dates, reminders or set alarms.

But for those times when you need to quickly check a date or find out the time elsewhere in the world, Calendar Clock for Chrome shows itself to be an invaluable little tool, especially as it works offline, too.

A small set of options are included and can be found by clicking on the cog icon in the upper right hand corner of the window. Here you can choose:

  • Set to ‘Always Show on Top’
  • Automatically hide/close when not in focus
  • Start week on a Sunday

Here additional timezones can be added from a pre-populated list of common locales and continents, and any existing clocks removed.

Summary

  • Handy way to see date and time at a glance
  • Doesn’t require Chrome/calendar tab to be open
  • Ability to add world clocks
  • Works offline

Desktop users may have little use for it, but if you’ve ever found yourself clicking on the Chrome OS clock expecting to see a calendar, this little app should help fill the gap.
