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.
Installed but not found in Notification Center - Downloaded (twice) and listed as Installed, but can’t Open it because it is NOT listed in the Notification Center which is required for a switch to be turned ON. Note: Mac OS = Yosemite.

memory display is completely wrong - bought today and found that the memory indicator is wrong. CPU and Disk are ok but not the memory.
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).
Simple yet great - Simple yet great app. I use it often.
good for the price - i’m running el capitan. the old free version of stat menus no longer works that’s why i bought istat mini. i still have a free widget for istat nano (discontinued) that works but i don’t like the widget interface. the notification area is much easier to access. i wish this listed the separate cores in the cpu display but it gives you what you need to know fast. if you want more there is always the activity monitor app. unlike the other reviewer, i found the memory reading to be accurate. it shows wired memory not app 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.
