Editors' Review

+

Those who work or have family around the world have the need to track the current time across multiple countries. World Clock for Mac is easy to use and allows users to see the current time anywhere in the world.

While download took longer than expected on a high-speed connection, installation of World Clock for Mac completed quickly and without any necessary user interaction. The program is also very easy to use, making the lack of user instructions appropriate. Unfortunately, it did not appear that technical support was available. The program is essentially a map with different time zones. Moving the cursor over the map illuminates the respective time zone and shows the current time in that location. Options are available to show or hide the day/night line as well as major cities in the time zones. Users have the ability to add favorite time zones along the bottom of the screen for frequent references. There is also the option of changing the colors and overall appearance of the map, which is a welcome feature. This app is available for free with no advertising or restrictions.

For those users who need to track multiple time zones for business or personal reasons, World Clock for Mac functions well for this limited purpose, despite the lack of additional features.

"It works great!"

 |  Version: World Clock 6.0

Pros

Fast;
Correct;
Big time zones database;
Extra cities;

Cons

Internet connection required;
(However, I do understand why they made it that way, and I know time zones are always changing each year due to DST - stupid system in my opinion that most countries/cities use, except a few such as Moscow, which is more intelligent than most, and African countries as well).

Summary

This is a very useful app for enterprises and small/medium companies that want to keep track of the time/date on the company's offices throughout the world.

World Clock version 6 is really cool by the way! Much better than version 5.

"What's up with the .zip file?"

Pros

N/A - can't get the app to work

Cons

N/A - can't get the app to work

Summary

This is the second time I've tried to download this app (a previous version months ago, and now 6.0). Would love to try it, and it might be deserving of a 5-star review, but EVERY time I download the zip file and unstuffy it, I get a file that "thinks" it's a Flash application. The file name is "WorldClock.app" but when I double-click it all I ever get is a dialog box telling me the file is damaged. The icon for the app is a Flash document. I've tried everything, multiple restarts, cleaning up permissions, etc., but I can't get it to work. Am I missing something? Anybody else have this problem? Frustrating!! Like I said, I'd give it a higher rating -- if I could get it to work at all. Arrrghhhh....

Updated on Dec 23, 2012

Update on Dec 23 -- finally found the problem. Running under Mountain Lion 10.8.2, as far as Apple is concerned, this is a non-identified developer, thus causing the system to want to trash the file. Went into Security and Privacy settings in the System Prefs and switched to allow applications to download from Anywhere. Was then able to run the app, which should now be recognized. Reset my Prefs back to what they were. After trying the app, I'll up my rating from 1 star to 3. It does what it does, and it's kinda pretty, but doesn't offer anything exceptional or jaw-dropping.

What's new in version 8.0
World Clock now allows users to change from 12-hour to 24-hour (military time) format. The old Solar Terminator's shape also was applied due to requests from many users of World Clock. We have also made many improvements to the performance, design and code.
