Dato is a replacement for the system menu bar clock. Dato gives you a local clock, date, and multiple world clocks in the menu bar. When you click Dato in the menu bar, you get a menu with a calendar, calendar events, and world clocks. All of this is highly customizable.
By default, it looks exactly the same, but when you click it, you get a small calendar, calendar events for the next week, the current time in various time zones (even with custom names), week number, and more. You can customize what to show in the menu and the menu bar.
Dato supports all the locales and languages that macOS supports for dates, times, and the calendar, but the menus are English-only.
Here are some key features of Dato:
- Date and Time Display: Dato offers a sleek and customizable menu bar display of the date and time. You can choose from various formats, including 12-hour or 24-hour time, and customize the date format to your preference.
- Calendar Integration: Dato integrates with your macOS Calendar app, allowing you to view upcoming events and appointments directly from the menu bar. You can quickly navigate through your calendar and access event details without opening the Calendar app.
- Time Zone Conversion: Dato simplifies time zone management by displaying multiple time zones in your menu bar. You can add different locations and easily switch between time zones to keep track of time across different regions.
- Calendar Events and Reminders: Dato provides a convenient way to manage your calendar events and reminders. You can create, edit, and delete events directly from the menu bar, ensuring you stay organized without opening the Calendar app.
- Countdowns and Timers: The app includes a countdown timer feature, allowing you to set timers for specific tasks or events. It can be helpful for tracking time during presentations, meetings, or other time-sensitive activities.
These are just some of the features offered by Dato. You can download and try the app from the MacUpdate website you provided for more detailed information and to explore its functionality.
