Great Idea, Lots of Potential, Prime for Development but not quite there yet

The app is elegantly simple, and is on the right track. The menu bar is full of apps and controls and quite frankly easily runs out of space. If it was possible for the developer to add the system controls of wifi, bluetooth, sound, battery, and airplay into it, then I could disable them in system preferences have a true control center panel with the rest of the menu bar freed up. Like many reviers have said, a lot of potential but implementation is lacking a bit. As of right now, some of the features (e.g. flashlight) are useless for a computer. The wallpaper is somewhat as well. right click on a photo and the option is already there. I’m not overly fond of the UI as it looks out of place on OS X currently.

This app look cool from start but turns out to be crap. it is buggy and the flashlight just puts a white screen up it doesnt raise the brightness like it should. the settings tab is also misleading because I thought it meant computer settings WHICH IT SHOULD BE. there should be settings for wifi, bluetooth, etc. in other words, IT SHOULD BE LIKE THE REAL CONTROL CENTER. I dont know why i just wasted my money on this app when apple will probably come out with one in the next OS X.

Great, One Request

I’m not a jerk who posts 4 stars and says, will do 5 if you do this. Rude much. 5 stars, and will keep going 5 stars! One recommendation i would have is to put a feature in the iTunes portion where you can seek through the song playing at hand! If I love a song, I play a specific part over, and over, and over. That would be awesome!

Now for a review—
This is a cleaver app. I don’t say that about Mac Apps, save “Clear”, this app is awesome. This IS control center for Mac OS X. Simple, clean, and overall useful. As an added plus, there’s a timer in the app itself, which is phenomenal (I’ve been looking for a good timer app, this was everything I wanted!).
I will be following this developer. The Mac is simple, the apps should be simple and USEFUL as well. Kudos “It’s About Time Products”. It really is, about time utility apps are made for the Mac.

As an Apple Technician, I will recommend this App to any who appreciates simplicity, and wants an awesome utility. I’ve shown this to two customers so far, and we all love it! Thanks for making my job fun today :) 
