Time has agreed to slip through my fingers, ignore me, pass by unnoticed, and get lost when I need it most. So, added to my collection of watches, there are multiple clocks in every room, plus Menubar, Desktop, and Dock clocks on every Mac. Here’s another one.
In Your Face Time
My preference for timepieces is a bit old fashioned. I prefer them with hands; hour, minute, and seconds. I think of time as slices of a circle. Like a watch.
The latest to grace my Mac is called Desktop Clock, which is both a Desktop clock (think wallpaper with a clock) and a Dock icon watch.
Desktop clock comes with 17 different clock designs; all of them variations on a standard clock with hour, minute, and second hands.
Except for the flip-clock design, circa the movie Groundhog Day (with apologies to Sonny and Cher). Each clock can be adjusted for size, moved around on the screen, and works on Desktops with multiple displays.
Options include clock transparency, display on all the Desktops, always on top, and a hot corner which brings the selected clock to the front of the Mac’s screen.
Not bad for a few dollars. I’d like to see some kind of connection to Calendar events, though, including a pulsating clock that’s brought to the front of the screen when the alarm sounds.
Otherwise, well done.
