Time. And calls, of course. Time is what we use to keep track of, well, time and the things we assign to be measured by time. Mac users get Apple’s default clock in the Menubar which is about as spartan, sterile, and utilitarian as clocks go.
Real men use real clocks. That brings me to deepClock, the utterly inexpensive but classier-than-the-price-tag clock system. This is almost all you need to see.
What deepClock does is immediately obvious. You get a variety of floating clocks in a number of designs and sizes. Go simple, go classic, even go digital or retro, but finally there’s a way to control the time on your Mac with more visibility and style than the clock stuck in the corner of the Menubar.
deepClock is not just about clocks, though. Ti’s also about Calendar and comes with eight calendar styles in six different sizes, and just like the clock styles, there are a few style options.
No calendar is complete without a list of Events, and deepClock has a list of Calendar events visible in a separate window. There’s even an alarm sound selection for alerts.
What I really like about deepClock, other than the ridiculously low price, are the options. Clocks and calendars can be resized. Set them to a standard position below the active app window, or select an option to have the clock stay on top of everything else on the screen. Now, get this. On top of everything else means just that. deepClock will even float on top of fullscreen apps.
Of course, the deepClock clock can be fixed on the Mac’s Desktop, too, so you can place app windows around it to keep it in view. Each clock’s clockface can be customized; hide the hour hand, the minute hand, or the second hand. Regardless, there are 15 different clock faces and six different sizes. The clock even ticks if you want.
One cool feature in the clock and the calendar is how they go transparent when you move the mouse pointer over it so you can see what’s behind. Sweet. Through the years I’ve tried a dozen clock apps but this is the one that gets stuck on the screen.
