A lovely old application, once a standard on board programme with the Mac 8/9 OS's (less the city information).
For me, the enjoyment of this application is to see the Sun's shadow over the poles as the seasons change due to the Earth's axial tilt (of about 23.4°) known as the "obliquity of the ecliptic".
To have major cities of our world shown with shading depicting either daylight or morning /evening twilight is truly magic.

Can I put the most important towns to me, e.g. 3 in the USA, 3 in Europe, 1 in the MIddle East, 6 in Asia/Russia, Australia, NZ, 4 Islands = about 20 places and when I hover over them it shows me what time it is there?

How many clocks can be set?
When I've set e.g. 20 clocks/cities. Can I delete one and all the other clocks then automatically shift one place or do I have to replace one by one every clock to fill up the gap?

You know you can set your Mac to use the super-exact atomic time from the government's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Internet Time Service (IST)? Go to http://www.ustiming.org/?page_id=22 and paste the correct URL/IP into your Date & Time Control Panel.

The information which this program provides is excellent. It also requires ongoing maintenance from the developer. The interface could be better (and perhaps the developer is working on a cocoa version); however, it works. If you just want eye candy, go get some widgets.

Ugly GUI is ugly. Childish design. No chance to modify because this program has no pacet-structure. Poor!
Thats no way to become rich ;-)

Has the developer ever heard abour the GUI guidelines?
The interface is ugly and absolutely overpowered!
THIS APPLICATION IS CRAP!
It's not enough to have a well coded app - the interface design is 50% of the application

I agree, do you have a hint what better software is available?

Continues to work fine. IMO, this is the best of some six or eight utilities which perform similar world time functions. But this app has more cities in its database than any of the others...and that's a big timesaver.

Neat, but it doesn't seem worth $35. $10 to $15 maybe.. with all of the widgets that I'm guessing would be useful for world travelers and such.

Yes, I've been running an ancient version for years too. Just keeps going through all the OS upgrades.

It may be ugly as sin but still does a good job helping me to avoid waking up family and friends in the US and OZ by phoning them in the middle of their night!

Don't ever remember paying for the app. I believe it was back then free for a version that offered only four cities, which still remains all I need. Wouldn't pay $35 for it now though. No way.
