Analytics for Clicky - Mac Menu Bar App

Hey guys,

I just wanted to let you know I just finished creating a small Mac OS X application for Clicky. It shows basic stats for the current day in a menu bar drop down and a live count of the number of online visitors on your site in the menu bar (refreshed every three minutes).

Let me know what you think and if there's any suggestions you may have.

If you'd like to list it on your Apps & Plugins page and need screenshots or anything, feel free to email me (

I'd love to buy it, but the Buy modal window keeps prompting me to 'Enable cookies' after entering all details and click 'Buy' (Safari 6.0.2, Mountain Lion)

- bought it via Google Chrome, but you might want to investigate.

Thanks for letting me know-- I'll check it out on Safari and let Gumroad know since they handle the transactions. Let me know if you have any feedback :)

This looks awesome - was just wishing the other day that there was a simple mac app on par with the windows one. When I have my wallet tomorrow, I'll definitly be buying it!

Thanks for your support :) Let me know if there's any features you want to see included in the app!

The live count number doesn't show for me. Was this coded for just two digits? ;) I only see ++ next to the pie graph icon. We have a popular website with currently over 650 online users.

Yeah, the "++" indicates there are over 99 visitors simultaneously. I don't currently have a site that has over 99 simultaneous viewers so I wasn't able to test out a version that displays 3 digits and resizes the menu bar icon accordingly.

I'll look into adding that in, and as long as you currently have version 1.2, you can check for updates in the Settings tab. I'll post a note on Twitter (@andrewmunsell), on the download page, and here when I get the update out.

Some things for the next version:
- Daily percentage changes, like in the web Clicky dashboard
- Live display for three-digit viewers

I just updated the app with support for showing more than 99 online visitors. You can check for updates in the settings tab if you have v1.2 or higher, or download the new version from your download page.

Version 1.2.1 includes support for automatic update checking, displaying more than 99 online visitors in the menu bar, and showing the percentage of viewers that are new.

Purchased today. Doesn't work...

Go ahead and send me an email ( and we can troubleshoot your issue. It's working for me, so the backend API seems to be working fine.

Edit: I sorted this out with the Andrew. The app is working fine and I recommend it to every Clicky user who own a mac :)

Some suggestions for the next version:
- Change the app name, icon and menu bar icon
- Possibility to add more than 1 site
- Sound notification for new visitor with Off/on

Hiya, Picked this up just now and it's rather lovely, some useful stats just a click away and a great look.

I'd also love to be able to be able to add a second site, maybe switch with a tab. That would make this almost perfect, at the moment I often find I may as well just use it to quickly open my Clicky browser view, as I like to see both while I'm looking.

I do really like it though!

owenb: Thanks for the feedback! I'll definitely look into supporting multiple sites.
