Dato 5.0.14

Dato 5.0.14

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. Dato also comes with some macOS 11 widgets.
One-time purchase with free upgrades forever. Dato will never be subscription-based.

Dato supports all the locales and languages that macOS supports for the menu bar text, dates, times, and the calendar, but the menus and preferences are English-only.

Note to Chinese users: 该应用程序仅以英语提供,它将永远不支持农历。

On macOS 11, it’s no longer possible to completely hide the system menu bar clock. So Dato can only replace the date or you can make the system clock just be an analog clock icon.

Note: Some of the features in the screenshots are macOS 11-only features.
