Monitor time in multiple locations

runs on Mac

Your Mac comes with a built in clock, sitting there in the menubar at the top of your screen. You can change what it looks like and how it behaves, but you're pretty much stuck with displaying time for only one timezone, probably the one where you are right now. If you regularly interact with folks in another location, it might be handy to know that time it is there as well.

LoversClock is a menubar app that will display the current time for you. Since you've already got the local time, you can configure it to show the time on the other side of the country—or the other side of the world. Our preference is to show GMT so all those Unix timestamps make sense. If you like, you can display the time for multiple locations, so you can try figure out when the folks in North America, colleagues in the UK, and the people in Singapore can all be up and running at the same time, ready for that conference call (hint: there is no such time).

LoversClock is a free download. There are versions for OS X 10.5 (Leopard), as well as an older Tiger-compatible release.
