------- 2.0 ---------

With version 2.0 we have added a number of great new features to our Display Menu software! From the large collection of emails we have received from you over the last year, we have distilled the three most wanted and, hopefully, most useful bits of added functionality and implemented them. While we are pretty happy how the new features have turned out, it was still a lot of work: apart from solving a number of technical difficulties, we went through a long design process to include the new functionality but, at the same time, keep Display Menu's UI streamlined and uncluttered. This is also the reason why we decided to bundle the *new* features only with the new 'Pro' version of Display Menu. The basic free version of version 2.0 still contains all the features from version 1.4; the Pro version is a paid upgrade that you can purchase from within the App.

Version 2.2.2
Review by WNY Mac Guy

This App Saved Me Big $$$ and Time - I was installing a new Mac in an auditorium this weekend to be connected to an existing projector with a 100 foot VGA cable. We have to use a VGA amplifier to get a high quality signal. That amplifier prevented the Mac Mini from seeing the projector resolution info. My only choice was to use a 1280 x 1024 resolution that was the wrong aspect ratio. I was wondering If I needed to install a new cable, or use a different projector. With no time or money to do either, I tried this $2 app. It worked flawlessly! Just a click from the menu bar I can set the resolution to whatever I want it to be. I cannot imagine what I would have had to do without this app. I bought another copy for my personal Mac. I will do all by display res switching from this little app from now on. I purchased the pro version. If you need this app, it is well worth $2. I did not try using just the free version. I rated it 5 starts. I would have given it 10 stars if I could have. Thank you the developers for a great little app that just works!

An In-App purchase to add support for Retina Displays? - You’re kidding, right?

Version 2.2.2
Review by Six String

Free version only has 1 retina setting. Rest are blurry. - I tried this and every setting except the native 2560 X 1600 resolution is blury on my new retina 13” MacBook Pro. The four retina settings in the Apple Display system preferences look far better to me. None of these resolution settings (except the native 2560 X 1600 resolution) is usable to me. They are too blurry. The new “Pro” version is supposed to offer retina settings but I am leery of spending money until I know they not be blurry also.

Version 2.2.2
Review by tunepong

Functionally incomplete on MacBook Pro 15 - This application has usability issues that leave one wondering if it either does not work properly, or is purposely missing features in the free version. These issues are: 1) It does not properly indicate the current resolution set under System Preferences, Displays, Resolution, Scaled, that is, the current resolution is not checked in Display Menu. 2) It does not detect all the available resolutions. For example, using the built-in display on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014), the highest Scaled setting More Space (1980 x 1200) is not available in the resolutions list of Display Menu. Second guessing which setting is in effect is a huge usability problem.

Review by Shopper12345

Program works ok, NO SUPPORT - I paid for the pro version of this program. This program hasn’t been updated in a long time. It used to work flawlessly. Now I find that it has issues. Basically, I had the resolution cranked up on my MacBook Pro 13”, and my eyes starting getting worse, so I’ve decided to bring the resolution down a little bit. Unfortunately, sometimes the computer doesn’t remember what resolution I want to stay at (1680x1050). It sometimes defaults to a higher resolution which screws up all of my windows and then I have to reposition and resize everything. I’ve written to the developer 4 times with no replies. Judging from the fact that it hasn’t been updated in more than a year and they don’t reply, I would say use this program at your own risk.

Review by Salemaker

Doesn’t work for External Monitor on MacBook Pro - Sure it’s only $2, but I wish I could get my money back. Their screenshot shows the upgraded app will provide higher resolutions for your display. NOT TRUE! You don't get anything extra when you purchase the upgrade. Just use the free version of this app.
