    Here it is: iStat for iPhone

    I've been waiting a long time for this.

    Basically, it lets you remotely monitor your Mac's activity. Temperature, memory, disk usage... and so on. The UI is absolutely beautiful and it looks as if it belongs on the iPhone. You can also get the statistics about your iPhone and even free up memory (like Free Memory).

    I am so glad this came out.

    Grr... this looks really cool but I don't feel like paying for.
    Looks like I'll have to wait until I get a gift card.

    I can't connect it to my MacBook Pro. Remote connects with iTunes so it's not a network issue. The IP's right, so the only thing it can be is the port number.

    Anyone else had any issues?

    Been waiting for awhile for this app as well. Downloaded as soon as i saw it. Brilliant app. Beautiful. The UI is simply perfect for the iPhone. The info is great, the remote access is great as well. Have been using the computer version for years and just couldn't pass up the iPhone version. I recommend it 100%.

    What would be the point? You couldn't see the stats anyway...

    ---

    Bought the app... I love it!
    I was surprised by the ability to see stats of the phone though. :)

    :apple:


    EDIT: tried that whole "free mem" thing...
    I had 3MBs free... after about 5 minutes of 'working' the phone crashed and rebooted. hahahah

    oh well... Tried it after that (with 36MB free) and it didn't crash on me.

    As a user of iStat pro dashboard widget, I have been waiting for this one as well.
    Downloaded it as soon as I saw it... I can't remember when's the last time that I have done that.

    But that's probably because I don't have an app that can terminate Safari/mail running in memory yet...


    It would be even cooler if all I needed to do was access the stats via the dashboard widget since I happen to keep that on all the time.

    how would you not be able to see the stats if it was right there on your screen?
    i would like it to be easily accessible for my server.
    i think easy accessibility is the point.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your request. I though you wanted it to run as a background process or something while the phone was locked (as in the screen was turned off)

    no problem. the fault could be in my direction for not explaining it in full detail.

    Most likely if it's some sort of server. If we had servers made since the birth of Christ at work, this may be a neat thing for our IT guy to have -- if he'd ever use it. But that's what I'm assuming.

    Thanks. Hope you all like iStat.

    Thank you very much. :)

    Eventually that might be possible. iStat pro, iStat nano and iStat menus are all based on very similar code.

    We'll keep working on that. Hopefully it can be improved in the next version.

    The "Free Memory" app crashes if you have under 4MB free...sounds like it might be the same for iStat then? Too bad. Nice looking app in any case.

    Nicely coded app. The function isn't godly, but it's not a a developer trying to make a quick buck.

    Yes, some people will complain about the price. Seeing how iStat menus, nano, & pro is FREE, I am more than willing to pay $1.99; modestly priced, for this app on the iPhone.

    The app is well worth it. I used to use free memory, but this app is just soo much better. You get much more info, and i also clears more memory. Once I had 15 mb free, cleared it to 21 with free memory and then to 46 with istat! Works really well, all though I don't use it with my mac. On quick question what's wired memory? page ins? page outs? Yes I'm a noob sorry =]

    Curious, why would you want to monitor your Mac remotely with this?
