A free and versatile BitCoin and LiteCoin ticker for your Mac's system bar that allows you to track a variety of markets in USD or RMB
In its menu bar panel, BitNow displays a concise table with the last, bid, ask, high, low and volume prices of BitCoins or LiteCoins across all supported markets. A variety of markets are supported, including MtGox, BitStamp, BTC-E as well as OkCoin LTC and FxBTC LTC. The complete list can be viewed on the app’s homepage.
Furthermore, the values are frequently updated and the app shows you the last time and date it was updated on the lower part of its main window. In addition to this, you can select to monitor a single market directly on the menu bar. This can be selected from the preferences.
By accessing the Preferences window, you can also choose which markets to track in the panel. Thus, you can toggle on and off any market, leaving only the ones you are interested in. Note that an application restart is required after making these changes.
Another important feature is the ability to set alerts that notify you when the value of a USD or RMB (CNY) is lower or higher than a predefined value. You can choose any market in the list and create as many reminders you prefer. What’s more, if a reminder is invalid, the app will tell you.
All in all, BitNow is a nifty and user-friendly BitCoin and LiteCoin monitoring application for the OS X platform. It fetches information very frequently and supports a great number of markets. The ability to create price drop / raise alerts is also a great plus.
