Have you tried shuttercount? It's on appstore.

Magic Lantern will show the Shutter Count of EOS M in the debug section of the menu.

It shows the number of pics taken and number of liveview actuations.

but the ML software becomes part of the camera's? I would prefer a stand alone type of program...like shutter count, for the M.  So far has been a dead end.  There has to be something out there...no?
thanks

I was going to suggest DSLR Controller on your Android/IOS phone/tablet. I just tried the current version on my Android phone and EOS-M. It connected, but that's about it and it couldn't see the shutter count. Sorry!

DSLR Controller does work well with my other Canon DSLR's, however.

Not really, when you remove the SD card, the ML is gone. If you want to complete remove (the boot flag) it's very simple.

Installation guide :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSS41UOUNIg

Remove ML           : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLSYI7CWkbQ  ( this one is for 5D3 but for M, it's the
                               same.)

Tor remove the boot flag, just repeat to install the ML firmware and follow the instruction : do not restart the camera.
Wait for 30 secs and the boot flag will be removed. Then format the SD card in the camera and there will be no traces of ML any more.

thank you for all your help...worked smoothly..both install and uninstall!!
Learned how many actuations I have on my M..guess the battery info is not available with ML with the M.
No big deal..just have an extra battery handy!
thanks all...
