[prMac.com] Ottawa, Canada - Tunabelly Software today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Temperature Gauge Pro 1.7 for Mac OS X, an update to their app that controls fan speeds, monitors temperatures, and finds faulty sensors in a Mac. With Temperature Gauge Pro, users can see the current and maximum recorded temperatures (in Celsius or Fahrenheit) for every temperature sensor in their Mac. They can view and control the speeds (in RPM) for every fan both manually and automatically. With Auto Boost, they can have the fans go to the maximum speeds when a predefined temperature is hit.
What's new in Version 1.7:
* Potential crash on launch resolved
* Potential crash when checking drive temperatures resolved
* Issue with sensors in the LCD area resolved
* Issues related to showing drive temperatures in the status bar fixed
* Log file is only created if logging is enabled
* Sensor names updated
With the built-in diagnostics, users can discover faulty fans and temperature sensors. In addition, the app displays a notification if a sensor or the Mac gets too hot, or when the fans are turned up with Auto Boost. They can also log all temperatures, fan speeds, and alerts to a CSV file.
Temperature Gauge Pro runs in the background with configurable info displayed in the menu bar. The app also has a window that can be opened, which gives more detailed stats. It works on all Macs, whether it's a laptop or a desktop. Even more impressive than the lengthy list of temperatures are the controls in this app. Users can change temperature settings and fan speed, set Auto Boost temperature limit, adjust alert settings, and much more from the Preferences.
"I've had a few customers report that they have found faulty fans and/or overheating Macs because of this app, which is pretty awesome," said Matt Austin of Tunabelly Software. "Temperature Gauge Pro is the only Mac app that I know of that can both monitor temperatures and allow the user to manually control the fan speeds."
* Requires Mac OS X 10.7.5 or higher
* Compatible with Mac OS X 10.8 and 10.9
Pricing and Availability:
Temperature Gauge Pro 1.7 is $9.99 (USD) and available at Tunabelly Software. Promo codes are available for qualified reviewers. Please specify the website or blog you represent when making your request.
