It’s likely that almost all of us have had an alarm clock with the flip-down style numbers, circa Groundhog Day. There’s nothing particularly magical about the flip-style numbers, other than the momentary mental throwback to a more peaceful time (insert rebuttal to dubious conclusion here). If you need a clock that’s different for your Mac’s screensaver, here it is.
It’s called Fliqlo and it’s free. Here’s what it looks like on your Mac’s screen.
There’s not much to Fliqlo so you won’t be challenged with a laundry list of arcane settings. It’s a screensaver. Install Fliqlo. Select it in the Desktop & Screen Saver settings in System Preferences, and you’re almost good to go.
Setup Fliqlo and your Mac so the screensaver starts at a specific number of minutes after your Mac is last used. Click to view the Options (not much). Click to Test the screensaver. Click to put screensaver into a Hot Corner.
Your Mac’s screensaver will then display the old-style flip-down alarm clock of yesteryear; the one next to Bill Murray’s bed in the movie Groundhog Day (sans the Sonny and Cher music, though that would be a nice touch).
But, not bad for free.
UPDATE: Some readers report a few spam site alerts from the developer’s site. You can also download Fliqlo direct from MacUpdate.
