ResourceWatcher - See the apps draining your battery and end them with a click!

Hi guys,

I have a new app in the Mac App Store called ResourceWatcher.
It lets you see what's draining your battery at a glance!
Full Link:

Basically it's an app that lets you see your resource/battery drain level in the menu bar. From there, you can click on the icon and end any processes with high drain that you may not be using.

Feel free to leave me feedback, suggest features and let me know what you think.

Here's the full description:

✓ See which applications are heavily using resources.
✓ Easily check your system usage at a glance from the status bar.
✓ Quickly end programs you no longer want running.
✓ Highly customizable with filters.

Is your computer lagging? Maybe your battery is draining a little too quickly? Ever want to catch at a glance what's causing all of these issues?

All of this may be because one program is using an excess amount of resources in your computer.

We all have many apps open, most of which are inactive, but how do you figure out what programs are causing you to lag or drop from your nice 7 hours of battery all the way down to 2?

ResourceWatcher is here to let you know exactly which programs are affecting your system, and by how much.

It sits in the status bar, and checks every once in a while to show you how much the application is using in terms of resources:


1 - Minimal Usage
2 - Mid Usage
3 - Heavy Usage

You can then click on the icon itself to see exactly which programs are responsible for the heavy resource usage, which may lead to lagging, skipping, or heavy battery drain.

Highly customizable and easy to use, we also give you an easy way of instantly killing these processes that are pulling too many resources, as well as ways of filtering programs you know you need.

Multimon - Multiple menu bars & monitor management.
System Lens - Simple resource management for your Mac.

[ Both available in the Mac App Store. ]
