Clockwork has become a Lion-only app called Swiss (http://benedictcohen.co.uk/swiss/), and it is still great! I was a happy Clockwork user until i switched to Lion. I ended up using Today, which I don't like as much, especially as the current version of Today forces a dock icon on me, in addition to the menubar icon. I was happy to find Swiss, and to find that it as good as Clockwork was, while working well on Lion. The only thing I wish that Swiss would do is provide the option to show tomorrow's events as well, and then it would be perfect.

Much potential to surpass main rival, Today.

Today uses approximately 5 MB less RealMemory but tremendously more VirtualMemory (33MB for CLockwork v. 179MB for Today). Not a performance hit necessarily but a striking difference.

Clockwork leverages iCal's event management options much more fully than does Today (e.g. edit, more alarm options).

One issue is that the window does not resize horizontally resulting in a faulty presentation of the information. The right side of times are cutoff - only part of the “A” or ”P” in AM or PM shows. See [img=http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg204/timlance/CLockworkImage.jpg]here[/img]. I suspect it will be remedied once out of beta.

A real reeve is shared with Today. There is no way to directly delete an event. At least, unlike Today, you can further edit an event.

There's a Clockwork application that has been around since 2005, so perhaps this developer will want to choose a different name.
