Good but could be better
After looking for an app to notify me when my laptop battery hit certain percentages (so I can keep the battery in the 40% - 90% range in an effort to keep the battery healthy) I settled on this app. It performs this task very well and it has other features that I don’t use much of. On the pros side, it works well on Yosemite in conjunction with notifications to tell me exactly what I wanted to know vis a vis battery percentage. It is an attractive app and has a range of plugins for monitoring other stats (I use the iStat Pro desktop widget for many of the same types of info). The developer seems fairly responsive to emails for support. On the cons side, the app hasn’t been updated in a while and isn’t fully updated for Yosemite in that on a Retina display, the menu bar icons are the large chunky non-retina-optimized icons. Also, to use the battery percentage notification, you have to tell the app to display the battery percentage, which takes up more real estate in the menu bar, and the information conflicts with Apple’s built in battery monitor (the app will say 62% while the Apple menu bar item says 65%, for example). I hope the developer releases a new version to address some of this, although none of it is of the deal breaker caliber.
Comes with a great menubar mgr (as a bonus)!
The Menu Bar Stats app is nice and gives you the main stats: CPU, memory, Disk, Network, Battery. However, it also comes with a bonus app: Barsoom and I wanted to rate and talk about this app, as I realize that for me Barsoom is worth the $! I was looking for a menubar manager for a LONG time. There is Bartender that is unnecessarily complicated and doesn’t even do what you want (no drag and drop) and it’s expensive. Then there is MenuBar Rearanger 2 from the same developer as this app, but it was still too much for my needs. Then I noticed that MenuBar Stats comes with Barsoom, which IMO is in itself worth the money you pay for MenuBar Stats. It’s simple: just drag and drop and reposition your menu bar icons ANY way you want. And I mean anywhere and any way by just dragging and dropping them (Cmd+drag). And the support is prompt and very good - I had an issue where my icons wouldn’t snap into place. I emailed the support and got an email 5 min later with a solution (restart :) Worked great and has been since! I highly recommend this little app! And remember that you’re paying the $ for 2! Again - I love this app and can’t beat the value!!
well-designed, bonus memory cleaner
I doesn't seem documented anywhere (although I'm sure it is *somewhere*), but this app will also do a memory purge, which sometimes is a nice little useful trick. It looks very good too. I would only ask them to perhaps shade the "progress bars" a little more (might make them easier to see at a glance), and perhaps even allow us to make the different sections a different color (or at least different shades of the same color). But that's it, thanks guys!
