The Clock for Mac2.8.2 / 3.0 GM
Mac OS X offers you the possibility to place a date and time menu in your status bar, allowing you to always know the time on your current location. However, the menu does not have too many customization option.
The Clock is a small status bar menu app that provides access to a time menu, much in the same OS X style, but also contains additional features: displays a calendar, allows you to monitor multiple time zones, can display break alarms and more.
Unobtrusive user interface and polished design
The Clock resides in your status bar menu and does not require much user interaction. At the same time, most of its functions are just one click away: simply press the status bar icon and you will be able to view its main window.
The Clock main panel is separated in two areas: the top contains the calendar view, while on the bottom you can see all the clock set up for various time zones. You can easily add new entries to the locations list, but you can also personalize the app via the Preferences.
Personalize your experience
Via the The Clock Preferences window you can set up a keyboard shortcut for activating the app’s panel, you can change the interface color theme, you can decide to hide the calendar, or you can change the default time format.
The app provides a wide range of possibilities when it comes to time and date options: you can show the time with seconds, flash the time separators, use a 24 hours clock, show military time zone, displays the date and the day of the week, and much more.
Simple yet very useful time tracking app
Last but not least, The Clock allows you to set up a break timer: you can adjust its frequency (30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour, 1 hour and a half, 2 hours) and the time length for the break (2 / 5 / 10 / 15 minutes).
The Clock combines many useful tools in a minimalist, very organized user interface. You are able to view a calendar, monitor multiple time zones, and set up break timers without having to deal with different apps, which is certainly time efficient.
