------- 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.

This App Saved Me Big $$$ and Time
I was installing a new Mac in an auditorium this weekend to be connected to an existing projector with a 100 foot VGA cable. We have to use a VGA amplifier to get a high quality signal. That amplifier prevented the Mac Mini from seeing the projector resolution info. My only choice was to use a 1280 x 1024 resolution that was the wrong aspect ratio. I was wondering If I needed to install a new cable, or use a different projector. With no time or money to do either, I tried this $2 app. It worked flawlessly! Just a click from the menu bar I can set the resolution to whatever I want it to be. I cannot imagine what I would have had to do without this app. I bought another copy for my personal Mac. I will do all by display res switching from this little app from now on.
I purchased the pro version. If you need this app, it is well worth $2. I did not try using just the free version.
I rated it 5 starts. I would have given it 10 stars if I could have. Thank you the developers for a great little app that just works!
Doesn’t offer more resolutions than Display Preferences
This app doesn’t offer any more options than what Display Preferences already offers. Since Display Preferences didn’t have the 1600x900 resolution that my monitor required, this app wasn’t able to help me out.
