Two small free “weather” utilities for your Mac desktop

iClock ( gratuita, Mac App Store )

Farensius Desktop, un escritorio climatológico

Farensius Desktop es un pequeño visor de la temperatura ambiente de la zona que le indiquemos, en la barra de menús superior. Discreto y bastante bien diseñado, de un vistazo podremos saber el frío ( o calor ) que hace fuera de casa sin movernos de nuestro Mac. Aunque con esta aplicación hay otra forma todavía más visual.

Podemos asignar cinco fondos de pantalla diferentes a cinco estados climatológicos: Nuvoso, lluvioso, con nieve, tormenta y soleado. Cuando la aplicación cambie entre uno u otro, también cambiará nuestro fondo dependiendo de él. Estos fondos pueden ser los predeterminados de la aplicación ( bastante simples ) o los que nosotros queramos. Muy sencillo, ocupa muy pocos recursos en memoria y además está gratuito por tiempo limitado.

Not everything has to be great programs, that comply with great functionalities. There are also the small utilities , which often go unnoticed, and which have a very specific purpose for a specific use. Perhaps for many they are not useful, but for those who find them interesting they can be small jewels in which you have not repaired among a sea of applications.

I’m interested in those who take care of the details. Not because they are a small application should be neglected, and I consider that much of the value of them lies in doing what they do in the best possible way. Today I have found two of them that will not solve your big problems, but I am sure that if you use them you will be satisfied with what they offer.

In this entry I will talk about time . Weather as physical magnitude and weather meteorological . I have found two small applications on the Mac App Store, completely free of charge, that will help you control both of them, with a really great look.

iClock, using the dock to look at the time in style

iClock is a simple utility that consists of displaying a clock that is updated in real time in the Dock of our Mac. It has no other utility, but we can choose between different types of clocks ( analog and digital ) and the design of all of them is well worth it if we are already tired of the usual clocks.

Everything is completely in real time: even if we are doing something else, we will see the hands of the analog clock moving, for example. It has five different designs, and of course, it is a free application.
