Turn Your Mac/Windows Device into a FlipClock

In the past, screensavers genuinely protected your screen from “image burn-in,” but they no longer have the same protective function. Today, it is best to turn off your monitor or set on standby mode automatically after certain period. Moreover, when screensaver is running, it could use some of your CPU and RAM power.

Screensavers are still widely used today despite the aforementioned drawbacks, and for good reason—they can be a lot of fun. There’s one screensaver I would recommend to use if you like the retro style and turn your device into a clock while you’re not using. This screensaver is plain, simple and and doesn’t require much processing power.

Here’s how you can turn your PC or mobile device into a Retro Flipclock. If you want to have that retro Flip Clock on your desktop as screensaver, you can download it from https://fliqlo.com/screensaver/

Fliqlo for Mac/Windows is a clock screensaver that allows you to make your desktop/laptop device screen look like a flip clock. It displays the time with flip animation in large white numerals against a black background. Thanks to its visibility, you can check the time even from a distance
