So glad it’s back!

This little application is my favorite system monitoring utility! It’s great to be able to see what’s going on with my computer without having to clutter up my menubar. Plus it takes up so little screen real estate. It’s totally customizable, which is geting rarer on the Mac OS lately. Beautiful application!

ipulse 3.0.2

I have used iPulse for years, finally now working correctly with rootless System Integity Protection enabled Macs MacOS Sierra. A great utility requiring just a quick glance to determine how things are running on your mac. HIGHLY recommended.

Top Notch

I just downloaded & installed iPulse, at first glance I knew this would be the go to app for a quick diagnostic view. The hud is well done and compact, with the ability to resize to your preference.Being older I needed to max the size out. As I get comfortable with the app & its display I am certain that I can make the graphics much smaller. As I went through each option for each view I gained a better understand of the app. If you have not used an app such as iPulse before I recommend going through each setting for each feature. Play around with colors and opacity. I spent about a half hour just playing, as I played I learned. Great app and well worth the price.
