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).

Please fix CPU Temp for M1 MBA

I'd give this a 5 star rating if the CPU temp worked on my M1 MacBbook Air. Otherwise, it's pretty solid, and worth the $3 to me.
No updates for 6 years now. Would love to see further advancement of the product, such as options for refining the display of I/O, and of course the temperature for the MBA. I don't know if the temp doesn't work because there's no fan, but i know the temp info is available for the MBA, so i'm sure the UI could be tweaked to accomodate temp display without fan speed somehow.

“Best Bang for the Buck!"

I was having issues running a very demanding video game (World of Warships) on my 2014 MacBook Pro, experiencing crashes, freezing and other problems related to the high memory and processor demands of the game software and it’s MS Windows client. I purchased System Pal and a dual fan cooling pad to address both the memory and temperature problems. System Pal allowed me to set up automatic cache memory cleaning activation at custom designated levels as well as providing real-time system operating information including processor temperature levels. I have been using it almost every day for over six months and have eliminated the the problems entirely. The cooling fan was instrumental in lowering the operating temperature, however System Pal’s temperature and memory readings provided me with real-time situational awareness of the MacBooks status while I played the game. It does what it says it will do and more, at a very affordable price. That is why I believe it provides the “Best Bang for the Buck!"

Simply Awesome

I’ve been using this app for years in fact its been about 5 years now and to me this app goes with Mac OS, it really should be one of the most essential mac apps. I’d love to sit here and nit pick on everything about the app but the fact of the matter is that there is only good here. To my knowledge there hasn’t been any bad updates or times when things started to become buggy. System pal lets you monitor your macs health and performance and it does the job very well. From setting alerts to clearing memory to monitoring temperatures there is no better app available hands down. This may be 2.99 but its worth 20 easily in my eyes, a absolute must have for any mac from mac pro to a macbook air, every mac should come with this app period. Pop-hub if you see this do me a favor and keep doing what your doing, this app is hands down the best monitor for macs.
