    Neat idea, but thousands of combinations for how to view time is not a benefit for me—it's intimidating. How about a few curated presets? Help me understand scenarios where a new format is most helpful (e.g. 24h format because I work with someone in Europe, week numbers because that's how we number sprints, etc.)

    At a quick glance, is the only difference between Lite and the built-in macOS Clock that you can view sub seconds?

    Nit pick: the download button becomes an illegible all white on hover.

      Hey Authur,

      The default SubClock setting is similar to the default Date and Time for mac. And yes, more options == more intimidation. Luckily, you don't have to try them all. For example, week numbers is an option for Pro users. I personally don't use it but lots of Euro countries do.

      Both Pro and Lite provide sub seconds. The site lists out some pro features such as different typefaces, percent day and more granular settings for min, hour, year etc.

      SubClock Pro also has more updates and features. For example, a pro user asked if we could add week number since he worked at a Swedish company. Apparently they use week numbers instead of days. The feature was added in the next release.

      Nit pick: White hover fixed! good eye.

      I hope you enjoy it. Support the indie devs/designers (they need coffee).

    Lockup month selection under pro version is quite hilarious!

    Hello,

    I'm happy to introduce SubClock. It's a clock that sits on the menu bar. View date and time in sub seconds. It has far more customization than the default clock.

    It's available in Lite (free). I encourage you to try the lite first and see what you think. If you enjoy it, check out the Pro version ($5). You'll receive lifetime updates, collaborate directly with the developers/designers (we read all of your emails) and encourage further development. $5 isn't much but it goes a long ways.

    How it started. The current Date & Time menu bar was missing a few things. I wanted a way to view sub seconds (hence sub clock). I built a proof of concept and pitched it to my designer friend, Randy. He thought it would be awesome to add different typefaces. The idea grew to a fully customized clock.

    The full app lets you change every aspect of time such as years, days, hours, min etc. There are currently 100k different permutations to display time (in case you're a math geek). The goal is to continue expanding it to paid customers.

    I hope you all enjoy the website and app.

      Installed the free version and love it! There are a couple of things I wanted to point out:

      1. I'd recommend using San Francisco instead of Helvetica as the default text style, as that's the OS system font
      2. I'd shift the text a point or two up as it sits too low on the bar. See this screenshot of the baseline in the standard clock text versus SubClock's: i.imgur.com/LBYK8Gd.png

      As a final tip, when using San Fransisco make sure you enable lining figures!

        Hey Nuno,

        Thank you for your suggestions!

        1. Our pro version has many other fonts you can choose from. We'll be sure to add more OS system fonts.
        2. I'm unable to view the image you posted. I'll sync up with my designer and see what the issues is.
