Shows memory/CPU usage status, CPU temperature and fan speed, network status and disk reading/writing status on status bar. SystemPal is becoming an ALL-IN-ONE app. It also provides a tool kit including mini music player, screenshot capture, memory cleaner.

Great Features:
1. Showing status directly on the status bar. It is very convenient to check system status.
2. Showing a mini music player on the status bar. This mini music player controls iTunes to play songs in your iTunes library. It is very convenient to see song name and artist on the status bar. You can also check the album artwork, read the lyrics, rate the song. When you close iTunes, the mini music player will just become a tiny icon.
3. Providing a screen shot utility. You can use it to capture mouse selection, capture a window, capture the whole screen. You can save the screen shot to desktop or save to the clipboard. You also have the option to delay 3 seconds before capturing.
4. Providing a quick launch for Activity Monitor of Mac OS X.
5. Memory usage pie chart.
6. CPU usage chart. Working well with multi-core processors.
7. Network status (uploading speed and downloading speed).
8. Disk reading/writing status.
9. Configurable items showing on the status bar.
10. 1-Click cleaning memory. When you are short of free memory, you can just click 'Clean Memory' on SystemPal and it will finish in a couple of seconds.
11. Auto-cleaning memory. If the free memory is smaller than a certain number, SystemPal will begin to clean memory automatically.
12. Displaying the top processes which consume much memory or CPU resource. You can the terminate the app which consumes too much Memory/CPU resource.
13. Providing an option to play alert sound when the CPU temperature is too high. (This option is disabled by default.)
14. Special enhancement for OS X. This utility works perfectly in full screen mode and every space.
15. Auto-run at login (you need to set it in the preferences).
16. SystemPal consumes much less resource than other apps with similar functionalities.

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. :) JohnK, Calif.

Very Good App - This app may not seem like much at first glance, but it is a little treasure. It does exactly what it claims to be able to do and does it superbly. I find it invaluable for keeping an eye on system data, particularly cpu load and temperature. I also like the fact that it lives inside your menubar because it makes so much easier to access quickly. The developer has had this app in the store for a while now and he/she is constantly maintaining/updating it. I consider system pal to be one of my must-have apps.

Review by starblazer69

Great monitoring app! - I have an older 2009 macbook pro and an iMac and this works great to monitor the cpu temperature and fan speed (very conveniently in task bar). Also great for getting a quick glance at how the cpu and memory usage are faring. For $2 bucks it was a no-brainer.

Review by SamEureka

First App installed on new Mac - This app should be standard on new Macs. Having the graphs up in the menu bar is very comforting. I’d like to see a touch bar integration. That might actually make the touch bar slightly useful.
