Making OS X great again

What everyone else has written is true - it’s perfect - wanting for nothing yet not pushing too many options at you either. For me what makes this app go from really good to perfect are two things. One, the search function for city or time zone just works the way you think it should. But two is really what makes me love it: you pick the city or time zone that matches your time needs and then you can give it a nickname that is more meaningful to you. I’ve yet to find another time application that gives you that feature. For example, if your small city or town isn’t listed but another large city is and you know that the large city’s time matches your needs choose the large city and then rename it and you’re done. Rename the city to match your company’s datacenter names, time zone, corporate locations, warehouses, people times, what ever you need.

Thank you to the developer for making this great app.

Best Clock

There are an overwhelming number of clocks available, and I have surveyed many of them. This one is by the best. I like that it keels a low profile on the menu bar, but when it’s opened it has a very well designed, easy to read, expansive view. The calendar is a also nice feature to have along with the clocks, although if a calendar view is not wanted, it’s easy to toggle it off. Probably my favorite feature is the “meeting planner slider.” This feature makes it very easy to time differences as times are agreed on for a meeting. All in all, a fantastic app.

Elegance and Flexibility

I use The Clock both as an engineer working with teams across multiple time zones, and as an amateur radio operator. In ham radio we record many events by UTC as 24-hour display, and The Clock makes it extremely easy to setup a mixed timezone display with some timezone clocks as normal 12-hour AM/PM, and “zulu time” as 24-hour. It’s pretty hard to find a clock app that will actually do that in the first place. On top of that, it’s the best looking clock/calendar I’ve found on any platform. Just fantastic.
