Desktop Wallpaper Clock & Dock Icon Watch

I was delighted to find this app. Here you have the option of having right on your Mac’s desktop the classic Swiss Mondaine clock design used in every train station throughout Switzerland. This classic clock face is the easiest to read has never been improved upon. You can choose varying degrees of size and opacity plus the option to have it visible on top of your open windows. It is elegant simplicity.

Perfect desktop clock

I somehow lost my old clock - think a Java upgrade killed it. not sure. Anyway, I like an analog clock with numbers on the face in the corner of my screen. I bought several and tried them. At first I was disappointed because there was no way to make the clock “click-thru” like my old clock. And then I discovered that when I move my mouse up there, it disappears, revealing the files and disks. Woohoo! No need to make it semi-transparent. Great selection of watch faces and second-hand movements. I’m a happy clock-watcher now. Even better than my old one. Also, I had a couple of questions about the app, and I received email responses from the developer very quickly. Excellent app, excellent support - nice combo.

App would be great if it didnt crash

I like this a lot, but every 2 days or so the clock will freeze up and the app becomes unresponsive. You need to force quit it and restart it to get it going again. This is very annoying. I would not recommend it for this reason.

I’m a clock fanatic, and this just adds to my ‘collection’ with a PLUS side, its pretty cool...

I like that this clock can be made to place anywhere on the desktop. You can also set the transparency, and the different clock faces. I have mine set to be ‘on top’ of all my windows. But don’t let you think that it will interfere with your viewing or working on your applications, (the clock disappears when you move your cursor into the general area of your clock when you are working on something. Then when you move the cursor somewhere else, the clock reappears.) I’m generally pretty happy with this clock, and it is satisfying all my desires with the clock. If I had to ask for oneor two things to improve on, I wish there was a separate clock that I could initiate where it would give me a count down, or timer if you wish, so it would make me get up and move, or walk around so I’m not sitting all the time. OR maybe even an alarm clock function. I know, I know, this is a clock application, but it would be nice to be able to do the timer and the alarm clock without having to grab my phone and have the phone sitting next to me, doing the alarm or timer thing. For those who say they can’t position the clock where you want it… You MUST open the app, and click on the Click and drag button to allow you to then drag the clock where you want it on your desktop and then exit out of the application and it will be saved automatically in the place you dragged your clock. The same with the transparency, open the clock app, and change the transparency level, then close the application. To change the face of the clock, open the app, click directly on the face of the clock, and a pop up of the different clock faces that you can choose will show. Click on the one you want, then close the application.

Good but not great

This clock works fine, in the overall; but, it has its problems. You cannot move the clock on the desktop by dragging, without first opening the control panel and clicking on the move the clock bar. Also, when you resize the clock, it jumps to the pre-set location and you have to open the control panel, click the move bar, and then drag it once more. It’s way too many steps. Also, the clock selections are, to be honest, generally pretty unattractive.

Great Clock

I really like this app. It works very well and has a lot of face choices.

Just what I wanted.

Works great. Simple and flexible.

Great clock to have on your desktop!

There is no clock in my office, so this Desktop Clock really helps to keep me on schedule and on task. Sure, I could look up at the top left corner of the screen to find the time, but I find it is really helpful to have a nice, big clock on your desktop!

Need to fix the clock disapperaing on the dock

I use the clock a lot. I like this program. The anoying thing about it is tht the clock intermittently disapears from the dock and then if you change the clock face it appears again for a while and then for some unknown reason it disappear again after a period of being on the dock. This behaviour started since Jan 28th release and had not been fixed. Other than that the program is fine

Excellent aesthetic and software craftsmanship - flawless!

I have many software clocks and this one is my favorite for onscreen 24/7. It has worked flawlessly from first El Capitan to current macOS Sierra 10.12.2. With so many options it never gets boring like so many others. Two thumbs up.

Very nice

Love the way that it disappears when the cursor passes near it. Just wish there were Digital styles along with the Analog. Sometimes they just fit in better.
