Shortcuts, Flash/system monitoring for Snow Leopard

updated 12:55 am EDT, Tue September 1, 2009

BashFlash app released

atPurpose Technologies and Abracode have both announced the latest version of their applications are now compatible with the new Max OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. atPurpose's atMonitor 2.1 application allows users to keep track of important system activity in real-time. It displays information such as disk reading and writing performance, network activity, memory specifications, and allows users to log all monitored values which are saved in an XML format. The program also offers three different ways for it to display information, via the menu-bar, a dock icon, or a floating window on the desktop.

Abracode Shortcuts 2.0 is an application for assigning hot keys to contextual menu items. In the latest version some new features are added with its extended Mac compatibility, such as the ability to display a menu which contains items added by contextual menu plug-ins. The new menu tab is what's used to bypass the Mac OS X 10.6 lack of support for contextual menu plug-ins, and allows users to assign the hot key combinations.

Keeping in line with Mac OS X 10.6 compatible applications a new program called BashFlash has also been released. BashFlash is designed to help monitor the amount of processor cycles being used by a flash plug-in and allows users to stop the flash if necessary. By doing this users can help prevent their Mac from over heating or running slowly since they are stopping plug-ins from over-working the processor. BashFlash works on 64-bit Macs running the latest Snow Leopard and works through the Safari web browser.

All three applications are available directly from their company's website and are free downloads.
