    Hi! I'm a Mac OS X developer from Sweden, I usually hang out in the Mac Pro forum and some may recognize previous apps of mine (like Trim Enabler). I've just released my latest software, Control Center for Mac and would love some thoughts and criticism!

    Mountain Lion or later OS is required.

    Current features include.

    • iTunes/Spotify/Radium/Rdio controls

    • Battery Monitor
    • Display controls
    • Startup disk selector
    • World Clock
    • Timer

    I like it, but I have a problem. It's following my mouse, even after I hit the shortcut to turn it off! :eek:

    You also need to put a quit button. :p

    How do you mean when you say "follow my mouse"? You mean the touchpad? I will add settings for the touch pad. I will also put a quit button in the menu settings, for now you can also quit by clicking the panel and CMD-Q.

    I use forums for bug reporting here: http://www.cindori.org/forums/
    But if you don't want to register you can send the crash log to me here instead by private message, I really would appreciate it!

    I mean it follows my curser. :p I don't think it's supposed to do that?

    Thanks for the follow-up, looking forward to the next update. :)

    That should definitely not happen. What Mac and OS version are you using?

    Thanks for all the bug reports. Been pushing out several updates over the last few weeks that should fix alot of issues, especially the crashes. Looking to expand functionality now.

    Version 2 is now out! It offers a redesigned user interface and new great system monitoring widgets!


    Currently working on expanding the range of widgets for Control Center.
    Also got some more cool software coming out this fall :)

    I'll make this change in the next update!

    Tried to install after seeing it here, unfortunately it doesn't appear to work with Yosemite 10.10. I get a damaged program notification and asked to toss it in wastebasket I see other guys running it when I look at the Yosemite Desktops thread but I don't know what version they are running....

    By the way, that will happen with some apps like Minecraft. It must be turned off to open them.

    Overall Instructions

    Hello,

    This is a great looking app, and I've invested and purchased this along with the trim enabler. My question is, really how do I use it? Is there a user guide? I'm not the most tech savvy, and now that I have it, how can I use it day to day? I know about battery life, etc. But I've never had those issues, and while they may happen, is there more things I can check, or processes to enable, that will help me daily run better?

    Thank you.

    Yosemite 10.10.3 beta 2 Problems

    I am trying to run control center for Mac on my MacBook Pro Retina running Yosemite 10.10.3 beta 2. Most of the time I can't get it to actual show, pressing the show button does nothing. When I can get it to work it is graphically messed up. Finally, is there no dark mode icon for the menu bar?
