Customizing your Mac’s desktop is a pretty simple task if you know what you’re doing and you have the time to. If you don’t or you are too busy to take the time to play around with wallpapers and such, the TICKE-TACK app comes to the rescue.

Custom text-based time screensaver

TICKE-TACK is a simple OS X utility designed to display a text version of the current time, on top of your desktop wallpaper. The best part is that it also provides you with a large variety of setups featuring different desktop backgrounds and font settings for the clock’s text.

Moreover, if you’re the type of user that rarely sees his desktop because of their window filled screen, TICKE-TACK also comes as a screensaver, enabling you to enjoy its text-based awesomeness when you’re not working on your Mac.

Simple to use and inbuilt clock design randomization, as well as configurable to use your Mac's wallpaper

From TICKE-TACK’s Preferences window you can quickly browse through the vast number of designs and choose the one that appeals to you the most. If you cannot decide, you can always tick the “Display random theme” box at the bottom, thus being able to enjoy a new look each time your Mac is idle.

In addition, TICKE-TACK also comes with a bundle of supported languages that will make it effortless to add a text based desktop clock in your own language.

On top of all that, if you don’t like any of the available wallpapers, you can configure TICKE-TACK to use your own desktop background, with a font style of your choice or a random one by enabling the random theme option.

One other very useful feature of TICKE-TACK is the built-in Alarms tool which makes it trivial to schedule your own reminders, with custom text messages.

Easily customizable time screensaver for the Mac

Everything considered, if you’re a desktop customizing fan and a Mac user, the TICKE-TACK app, with its large collection of desktop backgrounds and clock design, should not miss from your toolbox.
