iClock Sherlocks Apple's Menubar Clock


  • - a mac os broke the minical display for 2 thru 6 months. now fixed.
  • - addition to the credits. added contribution by Brian Foster of 3 sounds
    - posting this version also to the app store
  • - changed the source for the getting ip info for display in the menu.
    - compiled for latest xcode
    - works great on monterey, intel and apple's m1 chips
  • - implemented edsa in sparkle
    - fix of floating clocks (stuck on previous day) issue
  • - this version now allows using the time and date menu, just the time menu or (new) just the date menu for those that wanted that choice. now when using just the date menu (time menu turned off) one can switch to the prefs or quit from the pref icon on either bigcal or tinycal. it's not possible to turn off both time and date as this would (and did) cause a rift in the temporal continuum. as user tpol emailed us a inter-dimensional temporal fracture was responsible for many of the issues noted in 2020. that issue was addressed on 1/20/21.
    - Now time menu and date menu color will not change for mac OS 11.0 onwards. Fixed this issue for mac OS 11.0 onwards. However color will change to black from white for macOS below than 11.0 because on below 11.0 macOS menubar background is white and we can’t see white text on white background.
    - other small misc changes to make licensing easier.
    thanks to users who submitted suggestions and other feedback.
  • - first universal version of iclock for both intel and apple silicon. changes made to iclock code so that it can run natively on intel and m1 macs. the resulting app for that is a universal binary. iclock is now universal!
    - new onboarding for new users because of the changes in mac os 11/big sur. the main one is that now apple uses the apple clock in the menu bar open and close notifications. the apple clock can be changed into an icon so there are not 2 dates and 2 times in the menubar. instructions are in the onboarding and at the top of the manual. onboarding open automatically for new users but can be open anytime time from in iclock prefereces:gerneral:advanced and tapping the 'open onboarding screen'
    - many other smaller modifications to the app.

    thanks and happy new year to all iclock users! times are changing.
  • - fixed the option to move to system folder which was broken by mac os 11. now fixed
    - updated a deprecated function (nsbeep)

  • - fix for mac os 11 where after date menu tapped it stayed selected. now fixed.

  • - added Iceland in cities/countries database.
    - added new plist with city name timezone.
    - sorted the zone list for quick selection
    - ui improvements to tinycal.
    - - apple & google calendar button moved to the top right of tinycal. shows what calendar you are using. click it to open the calendar. more convenient. suggested by user.
    - - new display number of months dropdown menu appears at top right top right of tinycal. more convenient. suggested by user.
    - - new display size of tinycal dropdown menu appears at top right top right of tinycal. more convenient. suggested by user.

It makes a great tune to take a break by. it's the perfect length. You can do push ups, stare out the window to rest your eyes, Surya Namaskars (look on youtube if your not familiar with this mind/body/breathing/spirit exercise), or Burpees (also available on youtube.com), etc. Here's a little article on the health benefits of doing Suryas which easy can be done in your cubicle or whatever space you have.

  • - now both analog and digital floating clocks can go all the way to the top of the screen just below the menubar.

4.5 mice rating iClock Review on MacWorld

4.5 mice out of 5, MacWorld, April 2020

“iClock review: Amazingly versatile, super customizable Mac menu bar clock. Replaces the standard macOS menu bar day and time with a more customizable, full-featured experience.” J.R. Bookwalter, MacworldApril 13, 2020

iClock for Mac: an extremely powerful replacement for Apple’s basic menu bar clock. iClock, one of the oldest Mac apps, has been completely rewritten from the ground up and updated for macOS Mojave 10.14.4. With its modern, productivity-boosting time management tools, iClock is more than a suitable replacement for Apple’s spartan clock in macOS.” – Christian Zibreg, iDownloadblog, April 25, 2019

 “iClock zeigt sich als vielseitiger Ersatz für die von Apple seit rund 35 Jahren kaum veränderte Standard-Uhr in der Menüleiste von macOS.”
Chris, iFun.de, 25 Apr 2019

TRANSLATION: “iClock proves to be a versatile replacement for the standard clock that has been barely changed by Apple for about 35 years in the menu bar of macOS.”  Chris, iFun.de (German Mac Magazine), Thursday, 25 Apr 2019

“If you’re a Mac geek like me and need a clock that does everything then Apple won’t help you. iClock can. This may be the most customizable menu bar clock with calendar, alarms, chimes and alerts, and even timezones for world clock capability…Get your Mac geek on with iClock’s robust settings and options.” – Terra Thomas O’Brien, TeraTalks,1/21/19

“iClock is simply a more useful and powerful menubar clock. Try it and you will quickly learn why this is one of my favourite apps.” – Marcel Dufresne, Excerpt from Mac Users of Southern Ontario Newsletter, Nov 2017

Clock Pro is truly ‘the Essential Mac Menubar Clock’. It is described as ‘A time hub which replaces the Mac OS X clock with many more useful menus, options and applications that everyone can use in day to day life.’ That really is a very significant understatement. It is truly amazing all of the features included in the program, many of which I didn’t even know that I needed, but now won’t live without! My daily Mac use is now much improved, well worth this small investment in productivity.”
Tom Piper, AppleJac – 3/25/15


“This is a fantastic program.”

Leo Laporte on MacBreak 261

iClock saves time! Once again I’ve snagged an invaluable tool from Plum Amazing. iClock elegantly offers just the right balance of functionality and features. No digging – no bloat; just a wonderfully simple tool to help manage my clock, my time, my Mac.
– Rand Miller, Co-creator of Myst and Riven

“I tried iclock because I was annoyed with not being able to see the date in the bar. When I went to pay for it, I noticed copypaste and decided to try it because I frequently want to do a little fancier copying. I probably won’t use the more advanced options, but I want the simple things to work well. Thanks Ed.” – Dr. Edward Catmull, one of the co-founders of Pixar. He was President and CTO of Pixar and now is President of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.

“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.

“It’s hard to imagine that so much functionality could be packed into a ‘clock’!” – Guy Kawasaki, Author, Blogger, Evangelist, and Entrepreneur.

“Many thanks. Great app!” –David Bogart, Executive VP & COO, Ontario Innovation Trust

“The new iClock is excellent and it is very stable. I also like all those links to various sites. I really love being able to easily glance at the bar and see the day and date plus I find the drop down calendar super useful in that it lists calendar items that are coming up. Excellent!” – Kerry Dawson

“Best time I ever had!!!!” – Charles Henry, PanTech Inc.

“I love iClock. It’s not only attractively designed, it’s really useful, too. Besides all its time features, I was delighted when I saw that it restored the drop down menu for open applications.” – James Henry Rubin, Professor and Chair, Department of Art, State University of New York

“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

“iClock is AWESOME! You should really try to get Apple to include it with all their machines! I’m glad I found it. Thanks!” – John Kingdon

“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

“I am a ham radio operator and I just want others to know that iClock 2 offers useful nw features for hams. The new 2.0 version supports handy web links along with many other useful features making it a very nice tool for HAM operators. I use iClock for time conversions, a handy quick calendar for looking up date (launches iCal when you want to enter something), Alarms, Stocks and more. An important note is Mark Fleming the author is interested in other links hams might find useful.” – Steve Hellyer

“iClock is more like a rose than a Swiss Army Knife: every time I admired a feature, there was another underneath.” – Graham K. Rogers, review in eXtensions, 2004

“For those with increasing communication with relatives, friends, and business partners located in various time zones, you will like seeing their local times with a simple mouse click. Simply put, this is one of the nicest add-on utilities I’ve used, and I highly recommend it.” MacGuild, 2005, Overall Rating 4 1/2 out of 5 Mice

“This product has a number of great uses, many of which would be worth the $20 by themselves. Anyone who uses a Mac throughout the day should check this product out, as they are likely to find several items in this “everything but the kitchen sink” utility that makes it a worthwhile purchase.” MacTech – 2006

“It’s worth every penny of the shareware fee.”David Weeks, 2006
