What's New in Version 2.3
- Bug fix
Only shows Memory in the Menubar
When this app description said it could run in the Menu Bar I assumed it could show CPU, RAM, Disk I/O, and network stats in the Menu Bar. It doesn’t; all you can show in the Menu Bar is Memory Pressure (in GB or %) and/or an icon to get to the rest of the stats.
This is still handy but it would be much nicer if EACH of the four stats could be configured to show up in the Menu Bar. Otherwise it’s a very nice app, handy to have for monitoring system resources. The only other thing missing that I can think of is a simple button to launch Activity Monitor for more details.
One GREAT feature is you can set a threshold for Free Memory and if that threshold is crossed, this app will “auto-clean” to recover some memory for you. Pretty handy!
Overall a super useful application for getting a quick glance of what’s going on. Not as powerful as some of the other applications out there like iStats, but it’s a fraction of the cost and not as complicated.
While it includes “Clean Memory” functionality, I’m not 100% certain it’s as efficient as the dedicated Memory Clean application, but it still does quite nicely.
The only annoying thing is that anytime my computer goes to sleep, the pinned location for the dropdown does not stick. Also at certain times when cleaning memory, I cannot get rid of the dropdown window until the memory cleaning process has been completed.
Great application, you really can’t complain for $2.99. A few bugs still but they’re getting there!
