It can also displays a heart, which is why it is called LoversClock. The current version also allows to display several timezones at the same time, each with its own clock.

A very functional app. Love it! I have it in my Login Items. I have travelled to 4 countries in 6 weeks, including Europe, and I know what time it is locally as well as at home. Great!! Meets all my needs - and its so simple. Thank you!!

You know Europe isn't a country, right?

This is a great idea. I used to use worldclock, but that is really too much for this simple purpose; this is much easier, and free. Very cute.

I do have some feature requests though:

• customizable font. Pretty please?

• the option to display a 12 hour clock, but without AM / PM. I prefer seeing "6:00" instead of "18:00", but I can easily tell if it's referring to AM or PM, and menu space is valuable.

• customizable/optional image! Yes the heart is very cute, and the sun is a neat idea... but why not let people choose for themselves if they want to see it.

• in OSX, menu items become white when you open them. This should be no exception.

the relationship aspect to this app is neat. I can think of a few features from that angle; how about a lovers-calendar being part of the menu? Or maybe a sort of timeline of past events (such as visits, anniversaries), and a countdown to the next one? I I envisage a simple interface where you simply put in a date with an event name and it shows (as a simple text list) how long ago or how soon the event was. That'd be neat. Though I guess that's another story ^.^
either way this is a very cute app.

Great little app! Very useful for business travelers who don't want to mess around with system time. Clean, simple, does what is says - no complicated fancy stuff. Thanks! Would like to have a more formal font (just the default system font) in business mode vs. lovers!

Running on 10.5.1, MacBook

i tried it a few weeks back and took if off my system as it only had military time (aka 24-hour clock). i am sick of seeing military time and always being reminded of it's implications and i didn't want to see it in such an app.

i will use it from now on since it now displays am & pm.

What are you talking about? By "military time" do you mean 24-hour time? What exactly are the implications of using a 24-hour clock? Most of the world goes on a 24-hour system because that's the length of a calendar day.

I wasn't aware that a 24 hour clock could imply anything but what time it is.

Brilliant. Simple ideas proving themselves superior again.

Two Clocks in Your Menu Bar. No more changing system time every zone change - leave the system clock on home time and set lovers clock to local! see immediately what you want to see, no clicking, changing cities, closing the app to see clocks on the desktop or dashboard!

PLEASE don't change it to run off system time - i beg!!

This is the app for ANYONE who travels or communicates across time zones.

If you want to change anything, just add option to show 12hour with AM/PM and maybe day of week and city

Thanks again!

This is a pretty nice app. Altough, I can't find my city.

I think you should base it off the System's Time. I like how it tells Sunset, Sunrise, & Night.

Keep up the good work.

The list of regions and cities in LoversClock is compiled from a Mac OS X internal list. While all timezones are contained in this list, not all major cities are.

I might add a more complete list of cities in the future, but for the time being LoversClock relies on the list Mac OS X provides.
