iClock Sherlocks/Surpasses Old Apple Mac Menubar Clock


Kaiulua-Kona, HI – Sherlocking was an amusing term invented when Apple copied and replaced software created by another company.* In a surprising reversal Plum Amazing has created a menubar clock software, iClock, that replaces/sherlocks/outshines/outperforms the old and well known Mac clock. iClock adds power features to enhance productivity.

iClock is a productivity enhancing app by Plum Amazing. Going far beyond the Macs clock, iClock provides these features in the menubar. Time, date, moon phase, support for Apple and Google calendar/events, alarms, chimes with included chime sounds,  global scheduling of meetings, Take 5 (a special pomodoro timer for taking breaks), world clock with custom list of cities and city data, floating clocks, app menu, stop watch, countdown and customized printable personal calendars with photos, automatic control of light/dark mode and a handy laptop alarm for use in Starbucks and at the airport. All features instantly & easily available from the menubar. More convenient, fun and useful then ever before.” Download to try it out free:

“With my line of work, I never know what distant corner of the world my job will take me. iClock’s simple, intuitive interface never lets me down. With a quick glance at the pull-down menu, I can see what time it is where I am….where I’m going…and where I’ve been. With another click, I can check the weather at my next destination. Its so much more than a digital timepiece for the Mac.”
Kevin Rafferty,
Visual effects supervisor “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”, “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace”, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and many other movies.

Plum Amazing CEO Julian Miller said: “iClock is now both one of the oldest and newest apps on the Mac. It is also one of the most popular and useful apps. Completely rewritten and updated for Mojave Mac OS 10.15.”

“I like the app iClock. All the features you like and none of the features you don’t like”
Andy Ihnatko, Journalist, Writer, MacBreak Weekly.

“I couldn’t live without iClock now. I love it because it is so simple, but has so many powerful features. I am constantly amazed at what it can do.”
– Anil K Solanki

“The feature that attracted me to iClock was the location time menu. As you know software sales is world wide because of the Internet. When I need to make a service call overseas I need to know what time it is in that country. I have used other products that require running a program to see the times, or software that clutters the desktop with clocks. iClock is simple, non-obtrusive and FAST. Thank you for a very useful yet simple to use program.”
– David Parrish
