Alarm Clock Gadget Plus for Mac
Although checking the time is not an issue in any operating system, we sometimes feel like having analog style clocks on our screen. Aside from the fact that they are bigger and more visible, they add a more welcoming atmosphere to our Macs.
Alarm Clock Gadget+ is a handy application for Mac OS X that provides various elegant and practical clocks on your desktop. Besides showing the exact time, Alarm Clock Gadget+ also comes with an alarm clock, iCal (Calendar) integration and a good number of preferences. Also, it goes without saying that clocks can be positioned to any area on your screen.
Clocks come in all shapes and sizes. You have different designs and colors you can choose from: dark, orange, red, green, blue or meadow, each with distinct hour hands, font number and more. Furthermore, clocks can optionally show accurate dials, second arrow, shadows, points, digits, days of the week and date.
In the interface of a clock, you can access the alarm interface, open iCal and the application settings. Every icon is neatly integrated into the clock and does not impede the visibility of the time. Overall, the look and feel element of clocks is highly customizable, resulting in very simple or more complex displays.
With Alarm Clock Gadget+, you can set up to 3 different alarms. In addition to this, the application can provide notifications for your iCal events from multiple calendars. It also implements break and work schedules and allows you to view the sunrise and sunset hours in your location.
On the whole, Alarm Clock Gadget+ provides you with a great desktop clock alternative. The app is well worth the money if you like large analog clocks on your desktop and also appreciate the fact that you can set multiple alarms and get iCal event notifications from a single tool.
