Universal Ticker overview

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 menu bar or in a floating window. The actual content is provided by plug-ins, by third-party applications, or by you, 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

Try to increase your update frequency. I have a Dual 1.25 G4 and get smooth scrolling at 40 Hz while the scrolling speed is set to 80 pt/s. Please also note that right after startup most plug-ins will need to do some setup tasks. The Smiley Ticker will load it's images, News Ticker loads the feeds etc.

I just installed this app onto a dual 2 G5 and the ticker still doesn't scroll smoothly. It jitters quite a bit. Must be something else other than the CPU speed causing this.

But scrolling is the way the content updates. Please suggest what should happen when a number of plug-ins want to show different values at the same time while the display is supposed to stand still.

Please allow users to set the scroll speed to zero so that the content doesn't scroll at all.
