A work in progress
and as such, it's not a bad app. I would like to see Fahrenheit as an option for temperatures and more skins. I agree with the other reviewers that the optional skins are horrible. It gives vital info at a glance but I'd like the option to change fonts and font size.
Many bugs, still functional
It monitors your computer's status. Not much else that it does :P
Other than that, there's some things I would like to note.
Default skins are bad. Installing skins is not *officially* supported but if you snoop around, you'll probably figure out how it's done. I already have a custom glass theme, so it shouldn't be a problem for you guys.
Please, developers, adding drop shadows and blur-behind would be AWESOME.
Very annoying. I can't change the font colors. Also, when you reboot your computer, the "widgets" load up *unpinned.* Finally, when you uncheck "Show icon in Dock", the icon is still there…
It's riddled with bugs that need to be fixed, but they don't affect functionality.
If this was a background process like Quicksilver, then it might be a lot better.
App interferes with disk operation in ML.
MagicanPaster seems to interfere with disk operations when it's running. I could plainly see throughput drop to zero every couple of seconds while MagicanPaster was running. Quit MagicanPaster and the disk performance returns to normal. Closing the disk monitor window did not help. I would rate this app a five were it not for this glitch.
CPU statistics are useful as are the temperatures and network monitoring.
BTW, a file server connection did not suffer the cyclic performance drops.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
