Add stats to Notification Center
Monity is a widget for Notification Center, designed to provide at-aglance system stats: uptime and processes; memory usage; network connectivity and speed; battery statuses; and how full connected drives are.
There’s way less information here than in iStat Menus, but Monity has the advantage of not consuming system resources when out of sight, as widgets are only active when Notification Center is open.
Still, it’s all a bit ‘version one’. Text is spindly on non-Retina displays, there are no fan stats, and disk stats are lacking – on our test Macs, only some drives were displayed, and only a bar for each was shown, not usage in terms of GB. The widget also took a few attempts to get working, although it was stable once up and running.
It does its job fairly well, is fine for the price, and offers more detail (if less glanceable clarity) than rival iStat Mini, but it’s not even close to iStat Menus. Craig Grannell
Perfectly fine for at-a-glance stats, but if you need detail, you’ll want to stick with iStat Menus.
