Command Center Crams An iOS-Style Control Center Onto Your Mac

Mac: If you’re a fan of the Control Center in iOS, then Command Center is a Mac app worth taking a look at. It jams a Control Center-esque interface on the side of your screen, complete with an Activity Monitor to boot.

Command Center is built by the same people behind the original Control Center app for Mac, but features added toggles as well as a new Activity Monitor. The idea here’s pretty simple: When you mouse-over the side of your screen, the Command Center pops up and you can toggle basic settings like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or Do Not Disturb. You can also hide desktop icons and turn on F.lux-like screen warming. It’s a bunch of stuff that’s readily available in the Settings or your menu bar already, but it’s handy to have quick access to it. That said, like it predecessor, Command Center’s a bit pricey for what it does at $US10 ($13), but you can check out a seven day trial to see if you like it.
