Take control of your Mac's menu bar. Create your own custom system-wide menus full of your most important files and folders. Put shortcuts to your favorite applications in the menu bar. Create 'Action Buttons' that can launch, hide, or quit groups of applications with a single click.

Add free plugins that give you quick access to the contacts in your address book, keep track of your most frequently visited web pages, let you control iTunes without switching from your current application, and more.

Aside from being able to add items to your menu bar, MenuStrip can also extend it if it is already too cramped.
By becoming a control strip that can be put anywhere on the screen, it effectively extends your available menu space.

Here are some key features of "MenuStrip":
Create your own fully customizable drop-down menus with your most commonly used applications, files, and folders.
Add shortcuts in the menu bar to all of your favorite applications.
Set alarms as reminders for meetings, events, or the latest creation cooking in the oven.
Create scripts to launch, hide, or quit groups of applications at once using Action Buttons.
Launch applications and open files simply by typing their name! No more searching through your hard drive to find where you put that important file.
With 'Auto-Hide Others' on, as you switch between applications, all background apps will hide out of the way letting you focus on what you need to do.
Expand with free plugins that allow you to control iTunes, keep track of your most visited web pages, quickly access the people in your Address Book.

10 days trial.
