I downloaded app on the recommendation of MacAlly for their backlit keyboard. It did not work on one machine due I believe to the machine using the latest OS 10.15.2, Catalina. Sad. OWC felt it would give me an indicator when caps lock was on. Hopefully you will fix this issue.

When Captin works, it's great. I have a logitech keyboard that does not indicate when the caps are on. When you're a fast typist, it helps to know whether you've hit the CAPS key or not. That's the purpose of Captin; it shows up in the menu bar at the top of the screen and lights up when it's working. The problem is: I can hit the CAPS LOCK key on my logitech keyboard, and often Captin will freeze and prevent me from typing anything until I hit the CAPS LOCK key on and off multiple times until, I guess, the app "resets." Then it works like a charm. But it happens way, way, way too often. Other than this bug, it's great, and I really need it when working with a keyboard like logitech (which, except for the glaring error of not having a CAPS LOCK indicator, is great).

It's a great little app until I loaded Catalina, now it doesn't run. I will wait until it's fixed to add my stars.

This little app is perfect. I have a Logitech 750 and the lack of caps ON light has driven me crazy ever since I got the keyboard. But after doing some research I found this app. It does everything it's supposed to do, and everything that it says it will do. So far, super happy with it.

Amazing little app and FREE, works on Mojave. Great customization options. I found it because Karabinier si broken and prevent the Caps Lock led to be on or off (if Karabiner is active). Now I can see in the menubar the status. It is even better than to look down on the keyboard. I would have paid for it :)
