After years of working with computers, I have been seeking ways to make my desktop feel more substantial and realistic rather than cold and flat. This is one awesome way to do it. I have two monitors, my main one is my 27" iMac, and the second an older squarish flat panel. I put this clock on the other panel, so I have it sitting next to me, and I get to see the clock a little more often since I use that space less. IT is indeed like hving a grandfather clock without taking up anymore space! And even better, I know that the time is actually correct.

I really like the options on the sound settings; it really allows me to customize it to what I want. I would keep it running even when I am not on the computer in screen saver mode, but because of my preference to reduce energy costs, my computer is set up to go into sleep mode right away. So I mostly enjoy its benefits as I am working.

My cat really likes it, too, and will sit watching it, as mesmerized as I am by the inner workings.
I wish there were more apps out there like this one for our desktops. But this one has managed to truly capture some authenticity. It might be nice to have options for other clock faces in the future.
Great app, and well worth the price. Thanks!

A Wonderful Item of Great Beauty:

I just love this app, warts and all. I love that I can have and hear the ticking of the second hand, Chimes on the hour and half hour, or not. I love looking at the inner workings of the clock. A wondrous thing to share with the grand children. I call it my Grandfather Clock. It is better that a real one. First it takes up no space, need no winding and or cleaning and, well, it is one of the things in life that just tickles me. I even enjoy that 4 O'clock is IIII instead of IV. It provides a place for the evil spirits to get out. I've gotten my moneys worth in just a day or two. The weeks after are all gravy… If you like clocks, then this is one app to have, and did I note that it will show up on dual monitors, or just one, or the other. A very nicely detailed and wondrous thing to have. Enjoy!

This is one App I always put on my Macs

This app works great not only as a screen saver, but also as a background. It takes up very little resources and it is better than random desktops. It is also a great conversation starter as well, for people always ask me where I got it.

The only thing I wish, is that more colors and styles were avaliable for the clock face, for as cool as this is, unless I have it alternating upon startup, it does loose its graphical appeal after a while.

I gave this 5 starts because it is a perfect background app, not because of what it doesn’t have, so please remember, if you want a background with more than two colors, this isn’t it… if you want a functional background that takes up few resources, this is perfect for you.
