Customer Reviews

I love it!

I am sick of world time clocks on the bottom of my ipad. This one you can go straight to the city and see the time from their. That makes me smile :) Awesome app even you want to see the times in different places even around the world. It is worth even to put on your desktop another smile :) Thanks for putting this app up for your mac. It makes a different and it is great. Please get it.

Very Handy, Very Lovely, Tiny Missing Bits

I have teams in five very disparate places; I love glancing at Daylight to quickly get where they are in their day. Best offering available for a clock that indicates daylight terminus.

The one bit I wish it had: I’d love to drop little red map pins in my favorite locations so I could easily click them to get the pop-up rather than having to search each time.

Nice work!
