When it comes to telling time or setting alarms, Apple could do more. One of my favorite applications of all time is Clock on iPhone and iPad. What’s not to like? Clock is free and there is nothing quite like it.
What you get is a world clock, multiple alarms, a bedtime app, a stopwatch, and a timer. The Mac has nothing quite like that even with a price tag. There’s not even a Mac world clock in the Date & Time settings, but if you want to know what time it is somewhere else, you have to figure it out or use World Clock for the Mac.
World Clock epitomizes the best of apps selected for Mac360’s discriminating readers; bargain hunters all. Get time from anywhere on planet earth. Set up multiple cities and timezones with little more than a click and the city name.
The value is hard to argue as World Clock follows a trend new to the Mac. Subscriptions. It’s free to download and try but to keep time over time you’ll have to ante up for a monthly or annual subscription for the better features.
Time can be converted as required. World Clock’s subscription model gets you weather forecasts for various locations, plus Calendar Event creation, so there is value to the plan.
World Clock Pro also has MacBook Pro TouchBar support, haptic feedback support, and a graphic overlay of, well, the world. That’s what you’d expect of a world clock, right?
My only point of contention is the subscription model. The price tag is nominal, yes, but time is free (and, yes, time is money) and available everywhere for free, although the convenience built into World Clock makes it worthy.
What I would rather pay money for is a clone of Apple’s Clock app for iPhone and iPad.
