ClearTime for Mac OS X

Version 1.2

Integrated desktop clock and alarm.

ClearTime for Mac OS X overview

ClearTime, is an integrated desktop clock and alarm system that stands out. Both the clock and the alarms are fully configurable to be as unobtrusive or as obnoxious as possible.

ClearTime's clock can be configured to be a desktop clock using a clear background that allows you to "click through" to icons underneath it as if the clock wasn't even on the desktop. In "standard" mode, it can be configured to behave as a standard windowed application with a title bar and regular controls. Finally, it can be configured to use no title bar whatsoever but with an attractive looking window with rounded corners. The clock can also be configured to use any size from a tiny little clock that sits on the desktop to something that can occupy nearly the entire screen. The choice is yours!

ClearTime's alarms are unique and separate, deliberately so, from any of the other notifications or alarm applications currently available on the Mac. The alarms can be configured to be silent, play one of ClearTime's two built in sounds, which we call "Alarm" and "Red Alert," or you can configure the alarm to play music, voice recordings, or just be silent. The alarms can be configured to be small (about the size of a standard notification), medium, or large, with the message taking up nearly the full length of the screen. The alarm messages don't just disappear or leave some tiny notification in the corner of the screen, they won't go away until you dismiss them and they're in the center of the screen.

The ClearTime clock features the following:

  • It's fully resizable from tiny to huge.
  • It can be configured to float above all other windows at all times, or act like a "regular" window that can be covered up.
  • The colors of the hour and minute hands, second hands, clock face, window background, and clock markers can all be configured using ClearTime's preferences panel, with varying levels of transparency.
  • A special mode, that we call "ClearTime Mode" can be configured so only the hour, minute, second hands, and hour/minute markers are exposed, allowing a user to "click through" to items underneath the clock without needing to move it out of the way.
  • It can be configured to be a standard window with a title bar and window controls, or it can be configured to have no title bar and controls, and yet you can still easily control ClearTime to move it around the screen and resize it as needed.
  • Configure ClearTime to delete alarms that are older than 24 hours.

The ClearTime alarm system allows you to do the following:

  • Use one of ClearTime's built in sounds, a music selection, or even a voice recording to accompany an alarm. You can also choose a silent alarm if you want no sound at all.
  • Wake the system up one minute before the launch of an alarm.
  • Select your own size for the alarm from ClearTime's three selections: small, medium, or large. Do you have an important meeting? Use the huge size with an obnoxious sound to make sure it grabs your attention!
  • Easily duplicate alarms to handle repeating events.
  • Easily edit alarms to change any parameters, such as the message, sound, time, or day.
Alarms may be enabled or disabled using ClearTime's alarm configuration panel. Disable the alarms if your computer is on all the time and you expect to be away for a while.

This is for a demo version of ClearTime for Mac OS X. The demo version will run for 60 minutes (one hour) and then terminate. A user may re-run it as many times as possible. The commercial version doesn't have this limitation and can run uninterrupted as long as your system is up and running.
