MenuPop Gives Instant Access to Application Menus from Anywhere

Aug 9, 2011 - 3 Comments


Ever wish you could access an applications menubar immediately, from anywhere? MenuPop fulfills this desire, activating an apps menu from anywhere with the click of a hot key or mouse cursor, by creating a contextual menu out of the main menu. This means you can access the Apple  menu, File, Edit, everything, instantly from a quick shortcut.

MenuPop is a great tool especially for Mac users with multiple displays, because once you set the primary display, the menubar sticks on that screen only. It’s also very handy if you spend a lot of time in OS X Lion’s full screen apps. Less moving the cursor means more productivity, and plus it’s free to download, so why not give it a try?

Download MenuPop from the Mac App Store – free August 9 only, otherwise $4.99

The app works fine in nearly all applications in Mac OS X 10.6 and OS X 10.7, and you can adjust the font size of the popup menu to accomodate your preferences. It’s fairly customizable, so be sure to check out the preferences to get a feel for the apps abilities.

    I’ve had MenuPop for a while, but I never really used it. Until last week. This little utility makes Lion’s fullscreen mode a pleasure.

    The other little Lion-must-have utility on the MAS is Chuck: like Quicksilver or Alfred, but much, much simpler to use.

    I tested on Lion but doesn’t work with the magic mouse the option of the 2 button, I tried in preferences but not luck. With the key buttons works perfect.
