Review by The Builder....

Thus Far, Very Good - Before Yosemite was released, I used the full-blown version of iStat on my Macbook Pro. However, I kept noticing that it elongated the time for bootup of my computer because of its data gathering process. So, although I loved the application, I didn’t update to that one; however, I saw that the developer came out with a “mini” version of it, so I went ahead and purchased it. I must say it works very well, and gives me exactly what I’m needing: the network speed (upload and download; critical to working!!), memory, CPU, & disk space. Very, very good app.

Failure To Launch - Upon purchasing this widget and following in-app instructions, it fails to open after following the three steps for the in-widget enabling. Have tried closing and opening widget and rebooting my MacBook Air to no avail-forget getting any app support. it’s only three bucks but I feel ripped off nonetheless.

Perfect! (plus clarification on Memory measurement “issue”) - Does exactly what I need… I’m considering upgrading some components & I wanted an easy way to check-in on performance w/o having another window open somewhere. I also typlically use >4 desktops, so it’s nice to be able to “peak” w/o swiping back to where the window is located (or pop open from Dock). re: “Inaccurate" Memory measurements cited in other review - Not my experience. If you open the options (the “i” icon) then you can chose what you want the Memory function to measure (pressure, traditional, trad. w/o inactive). These were all pretty close to what Activity Monitor was telling me… not exactly the same, but within a small & acceptable margin. I am guessing that the other reviewer had the Memory function on “Pressure” (that was the default when I installed it), which will show a much lower (but more meaningful) % than traditional. i.e., that is why a 8GB machine will show >6 GB in use, but only register a pressure in the 35% range (see also, the red-yellow-green graphic in the Memory section of Activity Montior).

memory display is completely wrong - bought today and found that the memory indicator is wrong. CPU and Disk are ok but not the memory.

Doesn’t Work - As others say, is memory meter doesn’t work, at least not with OS X Sierra, which is the main thing I bought it for. After I open MS Windows, which is a big app, it still says I have the exact same amount of memory available.

Good widget - I still use the Dashboard and loved iStat over there. This is a great new update as I try to get used to the Notification Center. That said, any chance we could get the temperature and fan speed added to the widget as options? I miss those too much to quit using the dashboard for now.

Review by DataGuyFL

Does not work on Mac OS El Capitan - Simply does not function as memory and CPU show 0 all the time. As you can see several others have the same problem. Several attempts to contact support with no solution.
