DROPCLOCK is a stunning screensaver for Mac OS X and Windows. The screensaver serves as a digital clock. But it is not a regular clock. In this one, numbers fall from the top of the screen into what seems to be water and they slowly sink to the bottom of the screen. Everything is done in super slow-motion. So, if the time is 11:34, you will see those four numbers fall from the top in the correct order. As soon as the numbers fall to the bottom of the screen and sink, they will disappear and give way to new numbers. Often the only number changing is the one on the right.

There aren't many options to change with this screensaver. You can choose between white numbers with a black background or black numbers with a white background. The default one (white on black) looks way better and I would even say it is smoother. This is screensaver is very big, weighing almost 150 megabytes. You need an Intel Dual Core processor on your Mac for it to work, according to the minimum requirements posted on the website.

All in all, this is a stunning screensaver with incredible effects. Many people had this on Windows and wanted it on their Mac when they made the switch, and they shall have it.
