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!

Beautiful system monitor

iPulse is a beautiful system monotring app. It presents a wealth of information at a glance, and details can be viewed just by hovering the cursor over the app. iPulse is highly customizable and a very solid application from Iconfactory.

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.
