Pin World Clocks To Your Homescreen With Tile World Clock

One of the big advantages of Windows Phone 7 is its homescreen, which uses Live Tiles to display information to the user, similar to widgets on Android but in a more uniform way. So, what this Tile World Clock by forum member Thunder_ – whom you may remember as the developer of Office File Uploader – does is just that: you create a world clock, set the time zone, display name, choose one of eight different clock types, and pin the tile to your homescreen.

It’s about as easy as it can get, and looks beautifully Metro. The only drawback is that the clock can be inaccurate – when background agents are disabled, for example in battery saving mode, the clock will even completely stop updating. Usually, though, the delay should be less than five seconds, which should be acceptable for most.

Continue to the forum thread to download the XAP, and be sure to leave some feedback!

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
