JAC (“Just A Clock”) Digital — for when you just need to know the time.
One or more resizable digital clocks showing the time in different locations.
• A selection of functional designs, primarily minimalist but including some faux real material.
• When the time changes numeral-based designs “roll” over; while 7-segment-based designs are static with individual segments fading on/off.
• Optional date, timezone, 12/24 hour, AM/PM and leading-zero display.
• Uses system language & calendar for display.
• Clocks may optionally float above other apps, or be brought forward using a hot corner.
• Spaces/Mission Control aware.
Restored map search capability following change of map service supplier. Added keyboard navigation for panning & zooming the map, and selecting completions from the search suggestions.

Does what it’s supposed to.
I’ve been trying to find the ultimate digital “date time, location, fonts, colors” widget at a reasonably cost.
This is getting there and it works for me.
Does notwork as advertized.
The map search functionality returns an error when trying to find a location for a new clock.
Nice to have:
The new clock section does not have a search function, nor is it layed out to find a location easily.
You cannot specify a clock based on knowing the GMT conversion.
Design looks good, but the functionality is bad enough I will be requesting a refund.
Our apologies, recently JAC started having problems with the map service it relies on for the map picker, the service stops working for a period and then comes back. After looking into the issue we decided to switch map service and have just released an update, v3.3.
The analog and digital versions are both really good. Use them every day.
The only suggestion I would have is to make it easier to find the time zones. For example, to find the time zone for Mumbai, you have to go to "Asia" and not "Indian Ocean". Which probably makes sense. But once you get to "Asia" the cities are listed without their countries, so there is a list of about 80 cities (for all of Asia) to pick from. There appears to be only one city for India, which maybe makes sense because it only has one time zone. But the one city picked is not Mumbai or New Delhi, but Calcutta. Ok, maybe that makes sense, but it is spelled "Kolkata", which maybe makes sense. But it makes too many assumptions for what I already know. In order to make a clock for Mumbai, I need to know India is in Asia, and that Mumbai is in the same time zone as Calcutta, and that an alternate spelling for Calcutta is Kolkata.
Why not just list "India" as there is only one time zone. Or why not list more cities. Or why not be able to choose country then city.
Anyway, except for that, it's good. Four stars, losing one star for difficulty in set-up.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
