Panic Shipping New Desktop Info Utility

Panic has released a new app for Mac users, Stattoo. Stattoo is a utility designed for displaying encapsulated statistics directly on a users desktop. The app features at-a-glance weather, disk usage, and battery life to name a few. According to Panic:

Stattoo is a brand-new Mac OS X application that "tattoos" digital statistics right on your desktop picture: out of the way, but always handy.

Stattoo takes this useful digital info, packages it up in cute little capsules, and beautifully blends them in with your desktop picture. For the first time, you can easily check information such as the time, temperature, last few e-mails received, battery power, and much more, by simply glancing at your desktop.

It works hard to stay out of your way – tucked underneath your icons, its capsules arenit clickable – but itis always there when you need it. Design-wise, Stattoo was carefully crafted to complement Mac OS X, not painfully distract from it. Itis super-configurable – you can change Stattoois font color, transparency, brightness, and much more. And finally, thanks to Exposéis Show Desktop function, Stattoo is always just a function key away – or, if you prefer, Stattoo can even pop on top of all your windows at any time with a customizable key-press of its own, or with a click of the dock icon.

You can find more information about the Stattoo release at the Panic Web site. Stattoo is available for US$12.95.
