Editors' Review

For those who want a basic clock with the look of older time devices, FlipClock for Mac is an easy-to-use widget. The application tells the time with a clock that features numbers that fall or flip down to the next.

As a quite basic application, FlipClock for Mac downloads two separate ZIP files, one for a dashboard widget, and the other for a desktop application. When testing the installation of the widget, it downloads into the applications menu, but the user must separately activate it from the dashboard menu before use. This brings it into the widget menu where it can be moved into the active window. The clock, itself, is basic, just as advertised by the developers. It contains the hour and minutes in white numbers on a black background. As the time changes, the clock mimics older, precomputer ones by having the numbers flip to the next.

FlipClock for Mac performs only one function but it does it well. This clock would be a good option for Mac users looking for a basic, but stylized clock for their dashboard.
