Check out the Mac App Store and you’ll find a few dozen Mac clock apps. The one that caught my eye is the one with the easiest name to remember, a lower than low price tag, and the longest list of cities.
All it takes is one click to find out the time in cities that matter the most to you.
Click To Get Time From Anywhere
If you developed a Mac app that listed the time in different cities, what would you name it? Something like, World Time Zone Master LZ-109? Nah.
Clocks. Yep. That’s it. Clocks. Click the Clocks icon in the Mac’s Menubar and the pop down window lists all the clocks you’ve setup for whatever time zones and wherever.
Using Clocks is about as simple and setting the time on a clock. Set up Clocks to launch when you login to your Mac.
Set date options to the standard 12-hour clock, or use the 24-hour clock. It even displays relative days with each location.
Clocks isn’t just another Mac clock app. As you setup cities in Clocks you can change the name of the city to a name of someone you know in that city.
Here’s a problem most time zone clocks have. What time will it be in a city tomorrow at 3:30 local time.
That requires some mental effort. Clocks makes it easy.
Note the little slider bar across the bottom of the Clocks pop down? Drag the slider and the time in each location or time zone changes accordingly, making it easy to figure out what time it will be somewhere else at a different time than now.
Clocks is just so nicely done. Click the Plus + sign to add a time zone. Click to display the date or the day of the week or both. This is how a time zone clock should work.
It’s so good, in fact, that the developer has a similarly priced app called Thermometer. Can you guess what it does? Weather conditions and temperatures from all over the world. Once click. Just like the time in Clocks.
