To lamontDakota: Don't know a think about IWatch or even if I would want it.

Also, given your significant use of foul and offensive language I will be asking the moderator to remove your post. If you have something to say or disagree with a posting, you can do it without being unprofessional or using foul and offensive language.

Plum Amazing just came out with an upgrade to the product; iClockPro 2.0. No where do I see the offer of a discounted upgrade price for their existing customers, some of which have gone through "the tortures of the dammed" to help them get the bugs out of the previous versions. Instead, If you want the upgrade, you have to buy the product all over again at $18, the same price that new customers pay. The only positive thing about it is that they did not raise the price as well. So much for rewarding their existing customers base in some way for their loyalty!

While I try to refrain from using MacUpdate as a Chat Room, Here are the facts as I know them:
-Installing 1.8 shows up as 1.6 as of several days ago.
- Version 2.0 is shown as a released product on your web page.
- It has been announced on mentioned on some other site on the Internet where I found out about it.
- You are charging $18 for it.
- There is no mention that I could find on your website regarding upgrades for existing users.

Just checked for any new information. Found some. In just 12 days they found enough significant bugs to release an update - i.e. 2.01.

I will let readers draw their own conclusions about their QA (Quality Assurance/Testing) procedures before initial release.

Any upgrade offers for existing users - none that I could find.

Maxter, I have likewise fialed to find v1.1.6 in the site. HOWEVER, the prefpane that I have is clearly labeled _"v1.1.6"_, but it has no date. OTOH, my installer has a date of "Wednesday, July 11, 2012 11" July 11:18 PM."

I didn't get my copy from the main DL page, but from a different page that's been deleted, apparently. On a whim, I downloaded the installer that's on the main DL page and, sure enough, this second installer ALSO is dated, "Wednesday, July 11, 2012 11:18 PM." AND, it, too, installs v.1.1.6. But, the MacUpdate post-date for v1.1.2 is _"2011"_.

My guess is that these new people, in addition to hacking up the icon, have also fucked up the download page by not only not updating it to v1.1.6, but also by deleting the update page and then not even mentioning that there IS an update!

So, DL the "v1.1.2" installer and see whether it installs v1.1.6 for you, too.

Can't hurt. Might help.

You never know.

FWIW, I''m using OS DR v10.8.3.

My comment is hardly a Review but it leans that way. Modern iClock is almost faultless in showing my time and day but is not reliable for my family and friends in the Far East.
However, we find a vast improvement in recognising data and stability. Besides I love some colour at right-hand side of menu bar.

I give current iClock 5x* in all categories as the developers have put in more effort and I expect Julian will do better still.
I mean this contribution to answer comments of some time ago.
This is a 5* essential utility surpassing other competitors.
I say this with chagrin as I had to 'repair' my Mac Pro by test-running Restore with only Apple apps for five days – a miserable time without my favourite utilities especially.

Since you have had to ask, it must mean that you'll have to do what I did and search around the site like I had to do. It seems that the site is no longer maintained by the original guy. Like the icons for the apps now really suck. IAC, I'll go back to the site and, hopefully, get the new URL. Why not?

I have been using iClock for years and it works fine with OS 10.7.3...

Recently I found there was a problem with a time zone that was incorrect... (It was for Alice Springs/Adelaide Australian time zone. It should show 6:00 pm but it shows 7:00...)

I sent a report to Julian but did not get any reply. I do hope that he will update the time zone databases from time to time so they reflect changes (and daylight saving zones).

I should mention that I have tested iClock in a beta version Mountain Lion and it seems to work fine!

"I sent a report to Julian but did not get any reply." My own sad experience! In my case, iClock has to be continually reinstalled, because the *time* is always disappearing! A "clock" that shows you the month, the day, the year, and the phases of the moon - *very* cool, IMO! - but will not show you the time of day?! What's up with that?! I'm using 10.8.2, but the version of the OS has nothing to do with it, because I've had this problem since iWatch v1.1.1. I haven't complained before, because I'm willing to grant the possibility that the problem is on my end. I really like iWatch and re-installing is a reasonable work-around. But, surely, it's time for an agonizing re-appraisal of an app that has yet to reach v1.2 since its inception years ago. I know that age isn't necessarily a problem. Like, I'm still using the abandonware, Do Something When, last updated in mid '06, with Mountain Lion. But that just makes it even more annoying that I have problems with an app still being actively supported.

Some services from iClock 1.12 seem no longer work with the latest version of Mac OS 10.7.3, such as alarms, schedules, preferences, etc...
Is that an update is planned soon?

This product has all the functions I would like to see in one app, but the app extremely unstable, and some functions are poorly implemented.
- Calendar alerts do not follow iCal pattern.
- Not possible to move the Calculator from it's default location.
- iClock calendar is ugly

The major problem with recent versions of this, which I've used since the beginning, is that updates are FEW and FAR BETWEEN. When it's broken by some random change to OS X, it can be over a year before the required update is provided. You can't help but feel that the author must have abandoned the app without bothering to open-source it, first. It totally sucks to be forced to fiddle and diddle with it, trying to make Prefs hold, THE major problem, IMO. Otherwise, I really LIKE iClock!

You absolutely need to get your act together, Julian. Stop half-assing it! Give iClock a complete re-write. It deserves it.

A paid update is far better than NO update!

iClock 3.05 doesn't work on Snow Leopard on my iMac

I have iClock 3.04b3 on my MBP and this one works perfectly with Snow Leopard. Lucky me I didn't update it.

Is there any way for us who don't want to pay for Pro version to get the 3.04b3 version download somewhere?

I sent an iClock Pro trouble report to support@scriptsofware.com and got no reply.
I then posted the issue in their forum, and got no response.
I do think that iClock Pro is the bees knees when it works smoothly.....which is not that often, however, Scriptsoftware's support really sucketh in my experience.
I really do hope that they get their act together and provide user friendly support and finally, a smooth working, bug free iClock pro.

This particular beta version is buggy. When quitting iClock's preferences or Mini Calendar,
System UI Server crashes with the message "The application SystemUIServer quit unexpectedly. The problem may have been caused by he iClockTimeMenu plug-in.
Also, most of my time/location settings do not appear in the menu bar read out.
The previous beta version worked just fine.

if you have b16 installed we need you to open the installer and in the help menu hit the create debug txt and send us the file. we did change some things on purpose to get more info from exactly the situation you had (it will only occur to a few with many menubar apps) and your bug report will actually help nail that issue.

I tried this out for a bit, and I found it to be fairly useful. I had some minor issues with preferences not sticking, but it's still in beta, so that's excusable. I eventually decided to uninstall it simply because it just wasn't quite useful enough for me to justify the purchase price. With the uninstaller (included in the installer application), I ran into problems. First of all, it couldn't find one of the application bundles contained within the iClock preference pane (!) and popped up a menu asking me to locate it. Second, it didn't delete anywhere near all the files installed by iClock--about the only thing it did manage to trash was the preference pane. Third, when I checked the trash, I saw that it had trashed my entire ~/Library/Preference Panes folder along with its own preference pane. I think it's important to make the uninstaller work properly if it's going to be included and recommended for use. A careless user who didn't check his/her trash before emptying it could have done quite a bit of damage. So, if you try this app and decide to uninstall it, just do it manually or with a utility like Amnesia or AppDelete, then run a search of your hard drive to find the library it installs in /usr/bin or wherever.
