There are many tools available for those working or socializing across multiple time zones but one of the most elegant has to be Clocks from Studio Dalton.
Clocks is a Mac App that sits neatly in the menu bar with a configurable menu bar display and the ability to add numerous time zones to a fly out panel.
Adding the clocks couldn’t be easier as you can search by time zone or by location and then add the destination to your list. The locations/time zones selected can be renamed as required, hence the MacBites HQ entry in the image. Surprisingly MacBites HQ isn’t an officially recognized time zone yet … but we’re working on it! 😉
As you can see there is a digital clock next to each clock face which can display as 12 hours or 24 hours and a relative day. I find the relative day option incredibly useful.
There are options to start at login and activate via a keyboard shortcut for mouse-less operation.
My favourite feature is one only recently added and that is a slider under the clock display that allows you to scroll time forwards and backwards on all the clocks. Brilliant feature for scheduling meetings within a known range of time zones. The animation that returns the clocks to the current time when you close the time difference indicator never ceases to bring a smile to my face.
If you have a need to use multiple time zones you won’t go far wrong with Clocks for only £1.49 from the Mac App Store.
