Iconfactory Releases iPulse v 2.0 System Monitoring Utility

The Iconfactory is pleased to announce the immediate availability of iPulse
Version 2.0 for Mac OS X. iPulse is a compact and visually pleasing utility
for monitoring the numerous statistics of OS X and your Macintosh. Created
by veteran programmer, Craig Hockenberry, iPulse v1.0 was rated Four Mice by
MacWorld in May of 2003. Version 2.0 builds on the critical and popular
success of version 1.0 by introducing over 40 new features that add power,
ease of use and aesthetic flexibility.

Here are just some of the new features in iPulse v2.0:

* Pop-up windows that show info for the gauge under your cursor
* Load & save the application’s appearance via iPulse Jackets
* Mobility gauges monitor battery power and wireless signal strength
* Disk activity gauges show when your disk is being accessed
* Automatic and logarithmic scaling modes for disk and network activity
* System hotkeys show or hide the iPulse window at any time
* Reduced CPU usage by lowering process priority
* Panther compatibility – ready for 10.3!

In support of iPulse’s new ability to save and load custom appearance themes
or iPulse “Jackets”, The Iconfactory has launched a new section of the
website – the iPulse Jacket Gallery. This is a great place for users to
visit and download the latest and greatest Jackets to customize the look and
feel of iPulse. In addition, the Gallery offers links to third party users
who have created and posted their own Jackets and a tutorial on Jacket

Version 2.0 is a free upgrade for registered users of iPulse and is
available for download today from The Iconfactory. The cost to register is
$12.95 USD. We invite you to stop by and see all that iPulse v2.0 has to
offer and to get sneak a peek at The Iconfactory’s next software offering.
