"Simply put, MenuPop is a standout system add-on that’s claimed a place among my login items," -Dan Frakes, Macworld. Rated 4.5/5.0 mice.
*******Rated 4.5/5.0 stars by MacUpdate users!*******
Note: You can access the preferences for this application using the icon it places on the menu bar (the little red bottle cap) or by relaunching it.
WHY USE IT?
If you’ve got a large monitor, Wacom Cintiq or a dual or multi-monitor setup, then MenuPop will eliminate the frustration of having to reach out for the menu bar and losing focus on your work.
Give your wrist a rest! Help fend off RSI and other complications by having ON THE SPOT ACCESS to the menu bar.
1- User-selectable menu item font sizes from small to super large.

4- Selectable menus to show: Apple menu and currently focused application's menu.
5- Showing shortcuts is optional.

Clever, but buggy
I regularly have to restart MenuPop. The menus always appear, but after a while you can't click on entries in the menus, be they submenus or actual actions. It also loses a star because it simply doesn't work usefully with a keyboard. You can press a letter to highlight a particular item, but only the very first menu entry that starts with that letter (eg if you have "Arrange", "Actions" menus, then hitting 'A' will only ever highlight "Arrange").
Just buy it. It should be built in. You will not regret it.
I have been using MenuPop for the last few days, and it has been awesome. I have dual displays and the ability to not have to go to the menu bar to click on something is a life saver. Thank you for saving me time!
This was a great tool for me, but it would sometimes fail on Photoshop. I never figured out why it would fail, but it would fail in at least three of the Macs I have access to. Great app, otherwise.
