New York, New York - After a decade in the software industry, Lickability is releasing its first paid developer tool today on the Mac App Store. Buildwatch is a menu bar app that lets you keep an eye on your Xcode compile times throughout the day. This will give developers more insight into how their time and resources are being used throughout the app development process, which will help them make decisions about equipment and fix bottlenecks.
With a glance, you can see how much time you spent building in Xcode today and how many times you've built your apps. Clicking the watch icon in your menu bar reveals a graph that breaks down your hour, day, or week by how much time you've spent compiling your projects. Hover over any segment for a deeper look at the data behind it. Opening the "More info" window gives you even more control to break down your stats by totals, averages, and schemes. Plus, you can inspect your build times for the month, the year, and all time.
Brian Capps, one of Lickability's founders and partners said, "We're ecstatic to launch our first Lickability app for macOS today! After 11 years of building apps in Xcode, we wanted a tool that would show us just how long that building takes over time. It didn't exist, so we did what we do best: built our own. If you develop apps for Apple platforms, we think you'll love our menu bar utility as much as we do."
Buildwatch was designed and developed exclusively for macOS with support for power users, a focus on privacy, and plenty of improvements to come in future releases. If you use Xcode, download Buildwatch today.
