You Control 1.7.2 Beta 3 for Mac OS X
Flexible menu utility that allows users to put commonly used items, including files and folders, at your fingertips.
You Control allows you to turn a corner of your Mac into a one stop information center. In fact, You Control lets you create custom menus in the menu bar, a corner of your screen or any where your mouse is that gives you access to the information that means the most to you
This is the clock that Apple should have made for you. But since they didn't, we did. After you use the You Control Clock module, you'll wonder how you ever used your Mac without it.
Like all of the other You Control modules, you can control how the clock looks including the font and color. You can add mutliple time zones to your clock menu so you can keep tabs on your friends or remote offices. Need to see a calendar view quickly? Don't open your PIM, just click on the Clock menu and get an instant view of the current month, next month, or any number of months you want to see.
Your music library is large and you have lots of songs to choose from. Yet you donít live in iTunes and you shouldnít have to switch back to iTunes from Photoshop (or any other app) just to change a song, adjust the volume or pause your favorite tune when the phone rings. Now you donít have to. With the iTunes utility module, you can control iTunes from any menu or customized set of hot keys that you define. Pause, play, rewind or skip any song from within any application. Plus you'll get some groovy eye candy each time your song changes.
If you spend a lot of time copying and pasting text and images between different applications, you know that Mac OS X limits you to copying one piece of data at a time requiring lots of round trips between your applications. You Control's Pasteboard utility allows you to copy up to 50 pieces of text or graphics and then access those items so you can copy them back into any application. Talk about a time saver!.

Just want to see names and phone numbers? Only names and email addresses? Everything including company name, address and phone number? No problem. You Control's Address Book module will even help you find a map of the address in question.
