Great time saver


UPDATE: In case anyone is wondering: It’s June 2017, and it’s been almost a year since the last update, but the app still works as advertised. My review below still stands (including my missive about the icon ;).

MenuMate is another one of those utilities you didn't know you needed until you start using it (PopClip, Annotate, and Moom being other examples that fall into this category). What a time saver; if you are working on documents that require multiple (or frequent) trips to the menu bar to locate commands (because you can’t remember all of the shortcuts or there are none), get this app.

At first I was skeptical shelling out the $$ for an app that, judging by the icon alone, looks a bit outdated to the eyes of Yosemite users (perhaps even relegated to the development graveyard), but I decided to give it a shot anyway; and I’m glad I did. The only thing I don’t like is the icon; it’s ugly and not at all representative of what this app does — hope the developer gets it fixed; soon. :)

Use this constantly

The Curt Jester

I constantly use this app as a shortcut to viewing application shortcuts by group. Anybody who is keyboard focused will like this app as it does exactly as you would want - access menu items quickly.

I have used similar apps that got the job done, but found this one after they stopped working after macOS updates.

I love this app!


Bring your menu to your cursor rather than losing your place and wasting your time scrolling up to the top menu bar! Make a simple keyboard command such as Option Z and it's magic. You will love it too.

It was a good day when I stumbled onto this app. It streamlines my workflow, especially when I'm immersed in editing in Aperture. The only thing keeping me from giving it five stars is that it keeps closing down. I can't find a way to keep it open and be there when I wake my computer. I'm not shutting down, just using sleep. When I want to use it the next time I get on the computer, I have to open it in Finder again. Maybe I'm missing something, but I need it to "stick." That small annoyance doesn't keep me from the knowledge that I would never go back to dragging my cursor across my large display up to the menu bar every single time I want my drop down menu. The drop down menu comes to ME now with the click of my easy hot key combination. I'm using a trackpad so I didn't set up the mouse option.

Upgraded to a FIVE STAR review: Good news! I found the Open at Login option. Drag the cute octopus from Finder or Launchpad to your dock to create an alias. Click and hold on the dock octopus until the pop-up menu appears. Slide up to Options and then over to Open at Login. That should make it stick!
