FlipClock is a Beautifully Simple Clock Screen Saver for Mac OS X
FlipClock is an appropriately named and wonderfully simple screen saver for Mac OS X that does nothing but show you the time in a very nice retro flip clock fashion.
FlipClock is visually pleasing and quite simple, as there are no major frills and no major features to FlipClock, nor do there really need to be, it’s just a simple lightweight clock that shows AM/PM and current time, with the traditional flip animations when the time changes.
Once you download the flip clock.saver screensaver file, you will need to install the screensaver on the Mac just like you would with any other third party screen saver.
Download the free zip file and uncompress it as usual, then you can install it either by dragging and dropping the .saver file right into the Screen Saver preference panel, or by right-clicking on the FlipClock.saver file and choosing “Open” to get around GateKeeper. Install it for just the current user or all users on the Mac, and that’s about it, you’re good to go.
The limited settings for FlipClock allow for 24 hour time and the display of seconds, just enough settings to customize the flip clock screensaver to your Macs liking. That’s about all you should expect as a flip clock is not a particularly complicated thing requiring many toggles and options.
Note that not all Macs will run FlipClock, though if the Mac is fairly new it should be fine, so anything with MacOS Mojave, Sierra, High Sierra, MacOS X El Capitan, etc will be acceptable as the screensaver itself requires OS X 10.8 or later.
If you’ve been looking for an OS X Mountain Lion+ compatible Flash-free alternative to the popular Fliqlo clock screen saver, this very well could be it.
