Love it. Just what I've been looking for to keep my to-dos constantly visible but unobtrusive, and remind me of up-coming deadlines. Nice way of displaying the current track in iTunes, too. The only feature missing for me is the ability to run Stattoo without a dock icon.

Love it. It's almost like having a Windows task bar without Windows. It's nice to keep all your info in one place.

I looked at Konfab. but couldn't find anything for my very basic needs - then I decided to check out Stattoo. Problem solved....I just wish the hot key would work but no problem. Quite versatile for my needs and very stable up to now. Good job.

would be great if you can control some of the things you see- for example itunes will be great and if there is an option to stay always on top of every program.

Installed Fine. Started asking for Audion... Clicked cancel and then the program continue loading normally. However, the app still doesn't work properly with iTunes... and crashed 3 times while I was moving other tattos around. I really want to like this app but when many other products do similar things... it's hard. I think panic would be well advised to make an update to transmit and implement some new features to a stale application.

in the audio panel on the preferences, it pops up with a dialog asking where Audion 3 is because it can't be found, Since I haven't got Audion 3 on my computer I clicked cancel, but the dialog appeared again and again. This is a bit annoying.

Ryan, the latest version of Konfabulator allows you to adjust the Expose settings - which can be configured to NOT be affected by Expose at all, thus, doing the same thing as Stattoo. You should download the latest version and check out the preferences of each widget. As for Stattoo... nowhere near Konfabulator in terms of available widgets, and configuration options are barely there at all... but it works very well, and offers something Konfab does not (a clean, consistent interface)!

I'd like to be able to move capsules, change their size & color. And maybe add more capsules? Its rather limited right now (and includes almost the same capsules/widgets/gadgets as Konfabulator.

While I agree with other posters that this is definitely a 1.0, I think it has one major advantage over Konfabulator - it *works* properly with Exposé. Doing a 'reveal desktop' will actually show you the widgetry in Stattoo - which is exactly what you want. Konfab has all its widgets scoot out of the way as well, making it no good for Expose use. Wait for the next rev, I've spoken to Panic and they are fully aware of the scaling issues and other nits.

Try AquaMon instead of this Stattoo. AquaMon is FREE! http://nibs.arsware.org/AquaMon/

I'm surprised Panic let this out the door. Right now all you can do is drag a few widgets to a dock-like, semi-transparent area on the bottom of your screen. And then the irony begins -- put all the default widgets in there, and there isn't enough space to contain them all. So what does the app do to compensate? Nothing. You can't adjust the pixel size of the widgets, nor the docking area. They widgets merely push off either end. On top of that, you can't move the docking area anywhere else on the screen. You have zero control over it. This has a lot of promise, but until they include the ability to adjust the size and placement, it isn't worth a dime. I love Panic's software -- I purchased everything else they make -- but this is alpha software at best.

First of all, it should be said that this is a version 1.0 and will likely be improved upon in the future. That said... It is so inflexible. I can't change the size of the widgets, what corner of the screen they dock too, and preferably that they not sit in a dock at all. I think I'd be okay that I couldn't "skin" these things like Konfabulator does, but not being able to put them anywhere I want at any size I want is absurd. This app has potential though, I am not going to write it off yet... I'll wait for the next release.

This costs half of what Konfabulator does. Looks good to me.

It's like Konfabulator without the flexibility and expandability. Takes up too much space (can't resize the modules...wtf?). Cant position it below the dock. No option to stack vertically. Meh.

Looks an awful lot like (a rip-off of?)Konfabulator to me
