The Clock is better than the clock on your Mac. Much better. It’s a Menubar clock which gives you one-click access to world clocks, a full calendar, and a time of time-based utilities not easily found elsewhere.
What, pray tell, would be a time-based utility?
The Clock has options to offset time information, backup to a specific time and date in the past, and customizable clock names, personal holidays, and an option to take a break according to your own schedule and alarm.
See? Already that’s far better than the clock Apple gives us in OS X. A click to the Menubar gives you plenty of clock information.
All that clock eye candy also comes with features and functions that put Apple’s clock to shame.
For example, contacts can be tracked in multiple time zones. It’s easy to highlight business hours and holidays for those in the contacts list.
The option to take a break on a schedule is fun, but the Devil’s in the details and The Clock delivers. Drag and drop clocks to order them as needed.
Preferences? Take a look.
This may be a world clock app, but the extensive preferences make it fully customizable. For example, set the clock’s window to be attached to the Menubar, the Dock, or detached from the Menubar. Set it to display as many world clocks as your screen (and eyes) can handle.
If there’s a negative here it’s that The Clock doesn’t allow for much visual customization. You get a gray theme and a black theme and that’s it. There’s also no option for viewing Calendar items in the Menubar drop down.
Still, The Clock is far better than the clock in OS X, costs just a few dollars, and gets a boatload of four and five star reviews.
