Hello there.


If someone could give me recommendations on Windows equivalents to these two Mac apps, I would really appreciate it. I miss them so much since moving over to Windows 8. I have googled around, but haven't found anything close to these two apps as of yet.


Note: I do not want any Metro app recommendations please, as I am not looking for full screen apps, especially not for Clocks. I need something I can quickly take a peek at, then return to what I was doing for that particular app.




App link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/clocks/id414554506?mt=12


The beauty of the clocks app is that it sits in your menu bar (i guess the tray on windows would be just as good), also the best factor is that it also contains locations in cities, for instance Palo Alto in CA. It also lets you rename the cities which is vital (for instance, rather than having 'Palo alto' display, you can rename it to 'Apple HQ' for instance), as I have contacts all over the world and various cities and cannot possibly remember who is in which city. So I generally rename them to suit the contacts name.

So they are important factors in recommendations for Clocks.

This is a great file comparison app, beautiful and precise. I mainly used this (and intend to do so for the new product) for programming purposes, for code comparison, i.e. comparing two source code files for diffs.


If there is an app that resembles this, both in terms of ease of use (simply a matter of dropping two files into it's window and bam, your done) and its appearance, that would be great.


Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
