Sometimes you run into a Mac utility app that looks and feels and works as if Apple created it. Clocks is so good that I’m willing to bet that Steve Jobs would have approved it and maybe even demonstrated how cool it is during a keynote presentation.
Alright, maybe not. There’s no way to know anyhow, but you get the idea. The clock in OS X is utilitarian at best, somewhat obscure in the Menubar, and the Dashboard Widget clock requires effort to view.
On the other hand, Clocks is probably what the Mac’s clock would look like if Steve Jobs had actually cared about the clock in OS X.
One click to the Mac’s Menubar reveals all your favorite clocks.
Clocks can be setup to view the time for over 500 cities throughout the world, including the correct time zones. There’s an option for relative dates, too– yesterday, tomorrow, today.
And, you can rename the chosen cities and replace it with the name of a city nearby, or even the name of someone you know who lives there. The Clocks’ face displays night and day, depending on the time at the location of the city.
Clocks also looks great on a MacBook Pro with Retina display. As clocks on the Mac go, this is the one to use. I’m sure Steve Jobs would have approved.
