Capster for Mac3.0

12 June 2012

Alerts you when the caps lock is on.

What is Capster for Mac

Capster is an easy-to-use application that will tell you when you've pressed the caps lock, either on its own or through Growl.

When you press the Caps Lock key, Capster's menu bar icon will change as well. For touch typists this is a great way to keep your focus on the screen.

If you accidentally press the Caps Lock key all the time, Capster is exactly what you need.

What's new in Capster

Version 3.0:
  • Capster now includes updated artwork.
  • Capster can now make a sound when you press the Caps Lock key.
  • You can now get notifications for the Function (FN) key.
  • You can now get notifications for the Num Lock key.

Whenever I restart my computer, the icon isn't visible. I have to click on Capster in my Apps folder for the icon to become visible again. A nuisance. I will love the application if I can get the icon to stay visible.

I really like CAPSTER.... Not a fan of the "new" white icon though. The previous version with the Red and Green Arrows was much obvious. Now instead of catching the notification with peripheral vision, users must now make a more deliberate look at the notification in order to detect between the two subtle icons.

Looks like I got sucked into another useless tool. I bought it through the Apple Apps store and it loaded fine, but DOES NOTHING. No Growl, no notice, NADA. AND there does not seem to be any tutorial to help figure how to configure it. HELP????????

It doesn't seem to work on 10.5 Leopard although it says it would in the requirements section above. When I downloaded and installed all I get is a strike-through app icon and a notification in Finder "You can't run this app with the version of OS X you have installed" (or similar - I translated this). OS: 10.5.8 Capster: 1.6.5

For us Growl junkies this is the ticket. Plus it really allows hiding of the menubar icon and it doesn't reappear and mess with my slightly mild OCD for a tidy ordered menubar. Just Open Growl and under applications change it to use the Bezel notification. Your all set.

This is nicer than Capsee because I can tell at a glance if the caps lock is on or off.

Stated requirements are an Intel Mac and OS 10.5, along with Growl. I've got them all yet the Capster DMG has got a circle with a diagonal line through it and a message upon launch attempt which says, "You cannot use this version of Capster with this version of Mac OS X", I've got OS 10.5.8. Maybe Capster requires OS 10.6? What sayest thou, developer? I could find no email contact address on the developer's website.
