Think about it. While you’re working on your Mac how often do you glance up to the right corner of the Menubar to check the time? I do exactly that dozens of times each day. Here’s how to make the clock work better.
A Clock Is A Clock Is Not?
Here’s the way the Menubar clock works now. Click on the time and you get a pop down menu with a few choices.
Select either Analog or Digital. The digital clock can display the day of the week, the month, and the date, in addition to the time by hour, minutes and seconds.
The analog clock saves Menubar space by displaying a small clock, minus hour and minute hands, a quick and easy way to see the time and nothing more.
Or, for a few bucks you can add The Clock to your Mac and get all the little extras a Mac’s clock should have but doesn’t.
With a click to the Menubar you get a full calendar and world clocks, an option to go back in time, time offset data, a calendar with week or without week info, and a laundry list of useful functions that make you wonder why Apple didn’t do this instead of what they did for the Menubar clock.
Not bad, right? But look at the extras.
Setup The Clock as dark or light, change the city names for different time zones, use a quick global hotkey to open and display The Clock.
Simply put, you’re getting a lot of clock in The Clock but the price tag is hardly worth mentioning.
I don’t know of an easier clock version to track Calendar items, keep track of different time zones, go backwards in time (time, not reality), that also defines holidays. Oh, and it floats on top of the Mac’s screen if you want it to.
Nicely done and often used.
