Very useful utility
This app packs a lot of punch in a small space. It is intuitively easy to use. The key componenent is the clean memory function, which frees memory that had been reserved but no longer is in use. This keeps OS X running much faster and more reliably. This feature alone is worth the price of admission. The other very valuable function is the network monitor, which simply displays network activity. When network activity runs high while your network usage should be minimal, you know it is time to reset your network connection. Use of StatsBar makes significant progress toward a low-aggravation Mac experience.
Connects to servers, even when your computer is asleep
I thought this was a great application, until I found using snort, that StatsBar establishes a separate IP address for your computer and then sends information from that IP address to a variety of outside server addresses -- even when the computer was asleep. I e-mailed the developer asking why StatsBar did that. Never got a response and that was over a month ago. I can think of no reason that this program would need to communicate with outside servers to calculate the memory usage and cpu usage. While a single connection might be needed to determine your WAN IP address, that doesn't explain the multiplicity of connections.
I don't trust this software and uninstalled it. The rest of the app store has now been warned.
Really functional, helpful and gets outa the way
StatsBar provides all the necessary stats on the various functions of the computer in a simple and clean interface. Yes, it may duplicate functions found elsewhere, but thats the beauty of it. Everything you want to know in a single place. Easy worth the small cost and FIPLAB seems to continually improve on thier products - so I’m looking forward to what they add in the next release. Oh! and it also offers a notifications bar extension so you can see critical gauges there.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
