Retro Fever is Still Kickin': FlipClock in the Wild

Retro Fever is Still Kickin': FlipClock in the Wild

Are you growing tired of your 3-year old Fliqlo screensaver? Yeah, we know it stops being awesome once everyone and your mother is using it. Luckily, there's a new kid on the block - he's got even shinier kicks and boy can he flip. Today, we showcase FlipClock Screensaver for Mac OSX (one of many we've featured).

Here's a shot of our own Macbook Pro 13" with FlipClock America installed (there's a Europe version which basically just uses a 24-hour clock). It runs just as snappy as our old Fliqlo screensaver with a little more sheen and gloss to it. The flip is pretty much identical to the old one, in case anyone's wondering.

We also heard you can add a reflection background (without digits) for a truly classy look, but we can't seem to find the menu option for it anywhere. If any of our readers figures out how to get it working, we'd be forever thankful if you could let us know!

Note: You should have the latest version of OSX installed for the FlipClock screensaver to work. You can download it here: Version 0.5.
