Very nice looking clock...

Very nice graphics, nice detail.

One small issue is the hands getting “lost” in the background. This makes getting the time at a glance a little difficult. On a 27” monitor, the clock is easily seen across the room, but you can't tell the time. This limits the utility a little.

I got this app particularly for the screen saver mode to use on a second display. I have a problem when selecting the screensaver mode from the dropdown menu. Clicking the selection gets the screensaver, but you can’t move the mouse AT ALL or you’re immediately kicked out of the screensaver mode. A kludgey workaround is to set the screensaver to enable sooner, but that’s not what I want. It may be that the author only uses a Magic TrackPad.

These quibbles probably won’t affect most users who like the look of this app. If they weren’t important to me or were corrected, this would be a five-star app.

The complaint of IIII vs. IV isn’t valid. I’ve seen and have had actual clocks with one or the other. An option for the paid app could be the ability to use which ever you want. Maybe even freak people out by having the two alternate at a set interval.

Dispite my issues with this clock, I still use it from time to time because it is so nice looking, There is nothing BAD about this app.

Mechanical Clock - Like looking at the heavens…..

When ever i have a moment, I enjoy looking at the beauty of the various parts of the clock moving along in such a heavy and dark manner but at the same time very smooth, easy and beautiful as if they belong and have been grind to perfection to last forever. It reminds me when ever I look up at the sky on a dark clear night were you can see the heavens.

Great App.

I would rate it 6 stars...

Love the looks!
Love The Animation!
Love the attention to detail, especially using IIII for 4 instead of IV which I've seen others do which is inaccurate to what's was on old Grandfather Clocks and antique clock faces!
The only thing I woudld like to see is it's screensaver setting to actually appear in my screensaver settings so I could use this app to lock my machine.
