New FreeTimeBox features: scheduled time synchronisation, separate autostart and autosync

FreeTimeBox, Symbian clock manager, time synchronisation
FreeTimeBox can connect to a time server to synchronise the clock of your mobile phone with an atomic clock. You can choose to sync your clock on demand or automatically. You don't even need a mobile internet connection to synchronise your clock, because FreeTimeSync can set your clock with GPS or by SMS.

New in the latest version of FreeTimeBox: synchronise your clock when you boot your phone and then exit, so you don't need to have it running all the time to set your clock auomatically. Also new: scheduled time synchronisation: every day, every week, every month, the choice is yours.

And there's more. You can run FreeTimeBox on demand or automatically at startup to display a clock in the programs menu, in any application, in all Symbian configuration screens, and anywhere else on your phone. If you don't want to see the clock in certain applications, you can exclude them from the settings menu. Of course you can also switch the time display feature off completely and use FreeTimeBox for time synchronisation only. Or the other way 'round.

If you don't trust the accuracy of the default time server (or if the default IP address gets out of date - FreeTimeBox can't handle domain names) you can make it connect to any other time server you like. Two lists of time server IP addresses that work with FreeTimeBox:
