How many ways can you tell the time? I did a quick run through and found 39 ways to tell time in our house.
There are watches, alarm clocks, a clock on the kitchen stove and microwave, clocks in every room, Macs that tell time with screen savers, and a bunch of watches, some decades old (but they still work).
Time must be important to our society and definitely to Mac users. How do I know that? Search for clocks on the Mac App Store. There are a few dozen clocks and alarms that range from free to about $20.
One of my favorites is the Mechanical Clock 3D which works as both a screen saver and animated Desktop picture app.
Another one that I’m partial to is called Clocks. Click the icon in the Menubar and get a list of world clocks, cities in various time zones. Nicely done.
There’s the esoteric and dynamic World Clock which has cool animation but is better suited to a screen saver.
The one called World Clocks gives you 12 different time zones and hundreds of cities. The clock designs are modern to cuckoo clocks.
The inexpensive but attractive Dock Clock does what you think it does. It’s a clock in the Dock.
Equally cheap in price is the Weather+ app. The + is probably the clock. But you get the current weather conditions, too.
A few more dollars will get you a few more clocks in MoreClocks, the app with plenty of clock styles, settings, time zones, and more, mostly analog in design.
Even less money gets you BirdClock which features various birds instead of numbers, and bird sounds.
Desktop Clock gives you number of clock designs that float on the Desktop, tracks cities and time zones, can float and can be resized.
My favorite is DeepClock which also floats on the screen, comes in multiple styles and sizes, and has the option of disappearing out of the way when you roll the mouse pointer over it.
Time must be very important to Mac users because we have many dozens of clock, timer, and alarms from which to choose. What’s your Mac clock of choice?
