New Release: Control Center for Mac

New Release: Control Center for Mac
May 2, 2014 Oskar

I’m very excited to announce a new software release:




Control Center for Mac is the ultimate utility for Mac OS X users. By using Control Center for Mac, you can control and monitor most aspects of your computer:

  • iTunes/Spotify controller
  • Realtime CPU/RAM and network monitor
  • WiFi connectivity
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Sleep disabler
  • Startup disk
  • Audio/Brightness
  • World Clock
  • Alarm Clock
  • Timer
  • Stopwatch
  • Tweaks for controlling Finder, System and Services
  • Simple note/task manager


All of these features in just one minimalistic app that stays in the background and becomes a part of your OS X experience.

As well as all of these features you get alot of useful settings and infinite color customization through the unparalleled Theme feature.

Control Center is shareware software, with a trial period of 7 days and $10 price.


Get Control Center



Please keep in mind that this is version 1.0 and there might be some minor issues.
If you have issues to report, or ideas for new features, please post them in the Forums.

Some known issues with 1.0 that are already being adressed:

Using the Panel Shadow can cause sluggish animations (especially on Retina Macs). Meanwhile, you can turn it off in the settings for better performance.

The settings window will sometimes not relocate if the menu item moves

The touchpad controls are kind of sketchy at the moment (and only supports one gesture)

Some graphical glitches may occur on Mountain Lion

    Looks good! Purchasing right now. Seems useful.

    Maybe some features to add might be systemwide audio EQ? Or controls for performance, fan, etc.

    Please keep updating and smoothing it out. Great idea!

      Thanks Sam!
      I definitely need some feature suggestions like that. The current features are a bit “widespread” and maybe redundant (like the Note feature), so if you want more focus on one thing (like audio or system) it’s good to know.

    I get a menu bar drop-down but I see nothing else.

    What am I doing wrong ?

      The panel is activated through keyboard shortcuts, which you set in the settings panel.
      Default is Ctrl-D.

    What’s the advantage of this app vs using System Preferences? There are no screen shots that show the app interface.
