Is Apple's default date and time display too big for you? Does it take up too much space on your screen? If you have always been dissatisfied with it, then you should now try TinyDateTime. The program informs you with a small icon about the day and time. The information is displayed extra in a small font to save you space in your menu bar.

In addition, TinyDateTime provides quick access to a monthly calendar, including the week of the year. The current day is marked in color for a quick orientation.

For your convenience, TinyDateTime shows you the current timezone name with a UTC offset and the city.

The time and date settings of the system can be conveniently accessed directly in TinyDateTime.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I switch to a different month in the calendar?
Sure, just use the black triangles on the side of the month label to browse the next or previous months.
Can I try TinyDateTime before I buy?
Yes! There is a special trial version to help you decide whether TinyDateTime does what you need.
macOS claims that the trial version is damaged, what can I do?
This is Gatekeeper macOS's system protector. All my trial apps are signed with an identifier developer signature. However, you need to allow such apps in your security preferences. See Apple's support document: HT202491.
I need troubleshooting or have an enhancement request, what to do?
Great, I'm always interested in feedback. In TinyDateTime use the Feedback / Issue reporting item under Help or supply your request here. I try to get back to you as soon as possible.
