[prMac.com] IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Jose, CA - January 24, 2008 - app4mac today released CheckUp BETA 3, an innovative tool to check the health of a Mac computer. Built from the ground up with Mac OS X technologies, CheckUp features powerful tools to monitor the behavior and health of a Mac computer. It's a powerful and intelligent monitoring application for any Mac with PowerPC or Intel Processors.
CheckUp is useful for business and home environment. The computer monitoring software allows you to view the activities of a Mac and control the health with an innovative user interface.
CheckUp is designed to monitor the usage of CPU, Memory, Disk Drives and Network Adapters and alert you when a certain resource exceeds a certain value. You can create usage reports and displays detailed information about all running processes. You can pause or terminate these with a single click.
By adding rules that will be triggered when certain conditions are met for a specified resource on a computer, you can receive visual notifications. CheckUp can also help you to determine if your computer can run Mac OS X Leopard or determine if your computer have enough memory to run all your Applications.
The graphical user interface is designed with a top priority on high usability in mind. Unlike other competing products it takes a very short time to setup your environment. CheckUp is based on Core Image and OpenGL technologies that use Mac's video card for image rendering. Core Image and OpenGL utilize the graphics card for image processing operations, freeing the CPU for other tasks.
And if a high-performance card with increased video memory (VRAM) is present, the user will find real-time responsiveness across a wide variety of CheckUp operations. CheckUp is lightning-fast on the latest Intel-based Macs. Other notable feature: CheckUp is able to monitor a remote Mac on a network. It's a powerful feature for IT administrators.
CheckUp is optimized for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. It is also optimized for Macs with PowerPC or Intel processors (Universal binary).
Pricing and Availability:
The actual beta version of CheckUp can be used for free. We are asking for bug reports and feedback to make the product the best it can be. The final version is planned for February 4, 2008.
