Announcing JAC & JAC Digital v3: For when you just need to know the time

Cambridge, United Kingdom – Dalamser is proud to announce the release of JAC & JAC Digital v3.0 for Macintosh. Version 3.0 introduce a new map picker, enhanced support for multiple screens, and more. JAC & JAC Digital v3.0 support OS X Mavericks.

Enhancements in JAC & JAC DIgital v3.0:
* AC & JAC Digital v3.0 provide a new map-based picker for selecting the locations.

A common customer request was to extend the IANA list of time zones to include more cities around the world to make it easier to identify the time zone for the desired city. But which cities to add? How many?

JAC & JAC Digital address this dilema by proving a new map-based picker. Search the map for any place, large or small, anywhere on the globe; and then have JAC locate the nearest place with a known time zone.

Now every city, town, and most villages are available. JAC will even report, if possible, the name of the nearest place in the local language, the customer’s language, or English so users can pick one as the clock’s label.

* More time zone abbreviations and a new clock details display.

Each clock’s contextual menu now includes an entry which displays details of the time zone for the clock; including the abbreviation, UTC offset, and whether daylight savings is in force. The list of known abbreviations has also been expanded.

So if you have a clock for Olovyannaya no more 1200 on the clock face, the face will show MAGST and the new details display will inform you the zone is Magadan Standard Time.

* Enhanced support for multiple screens.

In multiple screen setups the hot corner can now be placed on any screen. OS X Mavericks’ new multiple menu bars and independent spaces per screen are fully supported.

* And more

JAC & JAC Digital:
JAC provides one or more resizable traditional (analog) clocks showing the time in different locations around the world. JAC Digital does the same with digital clocks. JAC & JAC DIgital distinguish themselves from other clock applications with their design philosophy “for when you just need to know the time.”

The clock displays are uncluttered and clear, designed for those times when knowing the time and date is of primary importance. A number of JAC or JAC Digital clocks can easily be arranged to echo the traditional “office wall” row of time zone clocks.

Optionally the date, time zone and morning/afternoon indication can all be shown on individual clock faces. These are all localised using the system language & calendar. In addition to acting like normal application windows clocks may be set float above other applications. Clocks can also be brought forward using a Spaces/Mission Control aware hot corner.

Should your need to know the time be for business, or to keep in contact with family & friends around the world, JAC and JAC Digital will deliver without fuss.

Pricing and Availability:
Available immediately from the Mac App Store for $1.99 (USD). We welcome reviews of JAC and JAC Digital. We provide NFR licenses on request to members of the Press. Requests for such licenses, and any other questions, may be sent to Press Support.
