I can’t see life under any OS, that doesn’t support SystemPal

I would NOT like to be without this little toolkit at my disposal. It’s my “What’s going on with My system” at a glance with tools like; Memory Clean(very Quick!), Chip temperature CPU/GPU average,fan speed, Network Speed(upload/download), Local disk speed (read and write), What’s hogging most of the memory and CPU time. Now if that is not enough, Screen Shot, Mini Music Player and a quick call up of the Apple Activity Monitor are at your finger tips. the AddOns keep on coming! Like I said, Whats NOT to LIKE !!!! At $2.00 USD I almost feel guilty for what my money buys. :)

First app on all my machines

This is a great app and for the money can’t be beat. I like the fact taht I can always tell how my RAM is doing and how cluttered it gets. When I first restart my mac there is a lot of green but then as days go by I can see it disapear and with just a couple of clicks I’m able to recover some of that space so my programs run faster. Over the years I’ve purchased new computers for myself or my wife and this is always one of the first apps I download to the new machine.

Does it’s job well

I picked this up shortly after purchasing a 13 inch Retina MBP. I was doing some light gaming and some large format media editing and wanted to keep tabs on performance. I mainly picked it up to monitor temperature and it’s done a great job. The different data points it keeps an eye on is really nice and having it up in the menu bar so all I have to do is glance at it makes it very slick.
