CheckUp 2.0, Flexteam 2.0
Ending a beta period, App4mac has released the final version of CheckUp 2.0, its system monitoring tool. The software tracks CPU, memory and network usage, as well as processes; alerts can be triggered whenever a resource hits a particular value, such as when a hard drive fails. CheckUp can also be used to determine compatibility with Leopard, and monitor a Mac remotely via LAN or Internet connections. The app is free as an upgrade or $40 new, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
App4mac has also released Flexteam 2.0, a group scheduling program. People can jointly view and adjust schedules, which can also be printed, exported to PDF or published to a website. Schedules can be sorted by day, week, month or year, and tweaked to assign days off as well as holidays. Flexteam 2.0 requires Leopard and costs $67, but like CheckUp 2.0 is a free upgrade for v1.x owners.
