Universal Ticker helps you keep track of things like the latest news, upcoming birthdays, or music playing by displaying whatever you want in a scrolling ticker - either in the menubar or in a floating window. The actual content is provided by plug-ins, third party applications or by yourself using the AppleScript interface.

These sources are included:

  • RSS - RSS and Atom feeds
  • Time - time and date
  • iTunes - current iTunes track
  • Battery - battery status
  • Birthdays - birthdays from your address book
  • Mail - count of unread mail in Mail.app
  • Text - lines from any text file

What's New

Version 2.4.4:
  • Menu bar icon updated for OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Works with the dark menu bar.
  • Fixed a bug that would prevent the ticker from displaying anything.


  • OS X 10.8 or later
