    "One word: Price"

    November 3, 2012  |   By summerstormpictures

    Version: World Clock Deluxe 4.8.3

    Pros

    Intuitive for the most part, useful, mostly accurate.

    Cons

    One word: Price. In an age where people are no longer tied to a desktop, especially when traveling far and wide, $19 is simply too much.

    Summary

    This "app" has been around for a long time and is mostly un-improvable--which is a good thing. Bring down the price and it will attract more buyers. All a too-high price does is to inspire somebody else to come out with one for a more reasonable price.

    Re-treading and cosmetic improvements will eventually turn people elsewhere and relegate it to a nostalgic afterthought of the 2000's.

    Also, for more exposure, put it in the Mac App Store. Why not? The only reason I even noticed this upgrade myself is because I still monitor the CNET RSS feed. That's it. If I didn't, I'd never know. Get this app some face time.

    "Flexible, but some human factors issues"

    September 18, 2009  |   By VisionAforethought

    Version: World Clock Deluxe 4.6.5

    Pros

    This is a very versatile app. Being able to display the multiple time zones in menu bar is a godsend for making international calls. (Why didn't Skype build a world clock into their client?) :)

    Cons

    Human factors issues. It is not obvious how to add time zones. The floating pallet doesn't snap into place or move out of the way when your pointer goes near it, so you have to close it to view anything under. (Possibly a flaw in OS X?)

    Summary

    Does what I wanted, provide at a glance view of several time zones before I place that call! But please make the GUI more intuitive and Apple like. Not explored World Clock Deluxe enough to make further comments.

    "One of those Zen moments"

    September 2, 2004  |   By wgscott

    Version: World Clock Deluxe 4.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I just arrived in England from the US and wanted to have both time zones displayed. I turned to version tracker and there it was, today.

    Works great. Option to have non-rotating clock displayed digitally in menu bar would be a plus, but my work-around is to use this for one zone and the default clock for the other.

    Price seems a bit steep but I haven't paid it yet so I am not really in a position to complain.
