Temperature Gauge for Mac provides a clear picture of what's happening inside your computer at all times through a readout of the temperature of various components. In addition to directly viewing these readouts, you can also set the software to alert you to a problem, so you can feel confident that your systems are working properly at all times.
Clear display: Temperature Gauge for Mac's interface features a column on the left that allows you to switch between views of all components at once or individual categories like Battery, Logic Board, Memory, CPU, and more. The temperatures themselves are shown on the right with a colored bar to illustrate whether or not they're within an acceptable range and how close they are to going over into a dangerous zone.
Customization options: The Preferences panel lets you make selections about certain aspects of the app's display and behavior. For instance, you can choose between temperatures in Fahrenheit and Celsius, and you can also decide how frequently temperature readings are updated. Another option is to check the Hard Drive temperature, although this can slow down some computers.
Installation hassle: Installing the latest version can be a bit of a hassle. If you go directly to the product website, you'll find the latest edition. But if you just download this, you're likely to get an error message when you attempt to install it. Instead, you have to go to the App Store to download an older version first, and then go to the product site to update for free, but the process is needlessly complicated and confusing.
Temperature Gauge for Mac lets you see exactly what the temperatures are in various parts of your machine at all times. While the installation can be a bit frustrating, the app works well once it's in place.
