Iconfactory updates iPulse
Iconfactory today released iPulse 2.1.8 and Twitterrific 2.0, enhancing the Mac OS X monitoring utility and the client for reading as well as posting to the Twitter network Twitterrific, respectively. iPulse is designed to let Mac users quickly get a feel for what Mac OS X is doing under the hood via a unified and customizable interface. The update fixes several bugs -- including reporting process information, properly displaying network statistics when disconnecting from a VPN, and localization -- and supports up to eight processor cores as well as the forthcoming Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system. iPulse 2.1.8 is a free update for registered users, requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is available to new users for $13. The Twitterrific 2.0 update is available for free.
Twitterrific 2.0 enables users to display Tweets inline, and supports resizing the text entry field. The latest revision of Twitterrific also maintains true read/unread state, and checks spelling as users type. The software is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
