------- 2.0 ---------

With version 2.0 we have added a number of great new features to our Display Menu software! From the large collection of emails we have received from you over the last year, we have distilled the three most wanted and, hopefully, most useful bits of added functionality and implemented them. While we are pretty happy how the new features have turned out, it was still a lot of work: apart from solving a number of technical difficulties, we went through a long design process to include the new functionality but, at the same time, keep Display Menu's UI streamlined and uncluttered. This is also the reason why we decided to bundle the *new* features only with the new 'Pro' version of Display Menu. The basic free version of version 2.0 still contains all the features from version 1.4; the Pro version is a paid upgrade that you can purchase from within the App.

almost fantastic

This is incredibly useful. I am running a mac mini for music only; headlessly off an old ipad as a VCN monitor and controller. So, I need to see an option for low resolution. I only upgraded from 10.6.6 in order that this machine would recognise a newer ipod, and there wee no options for low res until this wonderful app. The only issue is that every time I reboot or wake up te Mac, the icon for this app has gone and I have to recover itcfrom the app store. Any thoughts Id be really grateful. Gladly upgrade to the paid version if it resolves this issue.

Dislpay Menu

Simply perfect for me as I use a mac mini with no monitor attached which means that by default the max resolution available is 1024 x 768. When viewing remotely on a higher resolution monitor, 1024 x 768 is not so good. However Display Menu gets around this issue greatly by putting more resolution options in the menu bar.

Well done guys, brilliant little app and dead easy to use. Thank you.

Easy switching

I have my mac connected to my TV, 720p works great for all of my tasks, but when I go to watch a film I need it in full 1080p… This used to mean lots of clicks to change over, but with this app all I have to do is click the menubar icon and select 1080p. Takes seconds and saves me hassle of going through the system preferences route, thanks!
