Signals (alarm + every hour signal)
Any clock color
Texture instead of color
Ready for Retina display
Add a fully customizable digital clock on your Mac's desktop that can be personalized in various ways and enhanced with additional plugins
There are various ways to enhance the appearance of your Mac’s desktop, and many prefer to add a digital clock on their screen that enables them to keep track of time without having to squint at the relatively small one displayed in the status bar. Digital Clock is an app designed for this particular purpose, and offers a broad range of customization options, enabling you to change the clock's appearance and add additional functionality with the help of plugins.
Easy-to-use app that makes it simple to create a personalized clock
After installing Digital Clock, you can access Settings menu from the app’s status bar icon whenever you wish to change the clock’s visual appearance or enable additional plugins.
All of the application’s functions are self-explanatory, and you can view and changes you make to the digital display in real-time.
There are a number of skins to choose from, and while the default one has a very simple layout, there are many other versions that cater to those who want more artistic designs. Moreover, it can use one of the fonts installed on your system.
One negative aspect we have noticed is that when using certain skins or fonts, the clock appears to ‘flash’ whenever the displayed time changes, which can become quite irritating.

You can change the clock’s opacity and size, increase or decrease the space between digits, modify its color or even insert an image file that can be used as a texture for the entire clock or the individual elements.

For example, you can add alarm and scheduler functions, have the application move the clock on your desktop automatically, as well as display the current date or quick notes below the timer.
Useful tool that can have its feature set extended with additional plugins
All in all, Digital Clock ticks most of the right boxes, and the only negative aspect worth mentioning is the fact that the timer appears to ‘flash’ whenever the displayed time changes.
However, the app is easy-to-use and offers plenty of functions to ensure any user can create a personalized clock on their desktop whose visual design and feature set they are happy with.
Clean Me 1.4.1
Easy to use system cleaner that can get rid of some unnecessary files, logs and cache data, which may be taking up valuable disk space
If your Mac comes with limited storage, which is often the case for lower-spec Macbooks, disk space is a valuable asset. It is not uncommon for certain applications to store files and logs that are unnecessary but are difficult to access, and even the cache data generated by some programs sometimes needs to be removed.
Clean Me is a very straightforward app that lets you find this potentially unneeded content and remove it in a couple of steps. It is lightweight, open-source and remarkably simple to use.
Scan for potentially unnecessary files
First of all, you will need to analyze your storage in order to see which types of items are taking up the most space. You may find that things like downloads, temporary files or saved mail attachments are to blame, and you can generally remove them without a second thought.
Of course, for other types of files, you may have to think twice before deleting them. Cache data, for instance, is necessary for applications to run faster, and it will be generated again when you launch the app that created it in the first place. If it's a program you no longer use, however, the cache files are unnecessary.
Remove junk and free up disk space
Once you've analyzed your Mac's storage, you need to select the items that should be deleted. The app lets you know how much disk space will be regained, and you can also open the folders and remove files manually — this is a particularly good idea when dealing with cache data.
It is worth remembering that all files removed by Clean Me will be deleted immediately instead of being sent to the trash. Make sure you know exactly what you are cleaning and make backups if necessary.
Simple and useful
All things considered, Clean Me is a fairly basic junk cleaner. It doesn't come with any innovative features, but it is free, open-source and very easy to use. If you're trying to salvage some disk space, this app is a good solution to try out first.

Moreover, the application is capable of processing multiple files in one operation. This feature could save you a significant amount of time and effort whenever large numbers of documents need to be converted.
