TTMM provides a designer digital clock face for your desktop.
Pebble watch face designer, Albert Salamon, has created an app that gives Mac users the same option for their desktop – TTMM. TTMM is a utility app that provides a designer digital clock for your Mac’s desktop. It can act either as a desktop image or as a screen saver. There are four types of clock faces:
Three groups of dots, representing hours, tens of minutes and minutes, with a line for seconds. The time of day can be gathered from the color and position of the dot green (left) for AM and yellow (right) for PM.
This one is micro-revolution in minutes. Minutes are divided into six groups of nine squares – each square represents a single minute. Every ten minutes the group transforms itself into a large square. After thirty minutes a rectangle appears. The time of day can be gathered from the color (green for AM and yellow for PM).
Each hour is displayed by four quarters. A slowly flashing quarter represents a five minute period. After ten minutes the quarter blinks rapidly. Fifteen minute periods are signaled by a lit-up quarter. The time of day can be gathered from the color (green for AM and yellow for PM).
Time is moving from now to infinity; the digits stretch from this moment to a future yet unknown. Now you can see it.
At this time, I can’t really recommend TTMM. It’s a functioning desktop image and screen saver, but the set-up seems overly complicated and three of the four clock face options are in-app purchases. When I first installed this app, I was surprised about the set-up. Installation was pretty standard, but after that, I expected that all of the options setting-up the desktop image would be included within the utility menu. It was not. In fact, when you select the option for Screen Saver setup, it takes you to the regular System Preference set-up. Basically, I was left feeling confused by why this utility was needed as it didn’t offer me any additional options from what the native system preferences already had.
The design of the clock system is pretty neat, but again, I don’t really see the need for this. As a desktop image, it’s not very useful because it gets covered up with application windows. If you are interested in having an interesting designer digital clock, give TTMM a try. It’s free to download from the Mac App Store.
