I made a number of improvements to your App to make it somewhat more useful for me. The main improvements/thing I added are:

  • Start on login functionality
  • Battery icon
  • Time remaining when charging the battery
  • Textual improvements (less special chars)
  • Some small code improvements

If you want you can merge my improvements into your branch. I think I will improve my version somewhat further in the next days, will send a new pull request by then.

Thank you very much for improving and adding more feature!! I really appreciate it! This is my first mac app so any improvements and suggestions etc are welcome :)

I merged all your commits except one, the "CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY".
I also made some improvements and fixed a bug.

Great that you accepted the pull request! I understand why you didn't accept the code sign commit, but you should sign the builds you publish with a Developer ID. If you don't code sign builds Gatekeeper will prevent users from installing it!

codler commented Aug 5, 2012

oh, is that why. To get Developer ID I must have Mac Developer Program membership and it cost $99/year which is expensive. As a student that is too much for me =( It would be okey with one time fee, but per year is...


I get that, my company has an Mac Developer Account and can sign builds, so maybe we can figure something out to get out signed builds. At least I can sign the builds I make and put online. :)

I decided to join the program :P and now I can sign.


Great to hear you've joined. :) Looking forward to a lot of signed builds!
