SunnyMenu... The perfect compliment to the dock. It can hold a large number of applications all conveniently organized in a pull down menu that operates much like the old Apple Menu, but easier to arrange using SunnyMenu's built in Menu Editor. Works with URL Bookmarks and dynamic folder contents.

SunnyMenu now sports 5 menus, one for each corner and the dock has its own customizable menu. Upon first load it will build a working list of some of the applications you already have!

Similar to MaxMenus though less expensive.

This is an excellent utility. I switched from Unsanity's FruitMenu because SunnyMenu allows the user to have the same "corner menu" access, is much more customizable, and doesn't require hacking the OS. The developer is amazingly and consistently responsive, friendly, open-minded, and diligent in fixing reported bugs and posting updated releases. I especially like the user-assigned font option. With the latest release, SunnyMenu seems to have worked out the earlier bugs, and is proving stable and reliable under 10.4. Highly recommended. Grab it now. The price is low for all that the app delivers.

I would like to keep using this, but when I switch to a different 'Space' it disappears. I haven't been able to install it on multiple 'Spaces', so it gets a little aggravating.

SunnyMenu was released in September, the number of recent updates where in response to user requests. SunnyMenu now supports Path Finder as well as having Dynamic Folders that display contents of a live folder.

Implementing both of these features brought another round of necessary tweaking for perfect operation.

Your only a guinea pig if you want to be on the cutting edge, SunnyMenu is my baby and I enjoy cultivating it to perfection.

I find this type of menubar launcher app very useful, while there are a variety of other methodologies to organize some of your extra applications, I've always liked this concept.

The only thing I don't really understand is... why?

SunnyMenu appears to be a slower, clunkier, more bug-ridden and CPU intensive copy of one of the DEVONThink freebies, XMenu.


What exactly is the point of this app... I downloaded it, launched it and was... severely underwhelmed.

I like the idea of this app & registered it immediately (I like to encourage developers like this). For many years I have used the excellent 'Classic Menu' & 'Moof Menu' to do a similar thing & they have since become indispensable to me.
This app though is in its infancy & it shows - not least by the countless updates to it. Since I registered it just over a week ago there have been TEN updates. I very much applaud quick responses to fix bugs, but it's got to the point that you might has well wait. In the last 3 days this app has seen three updates.
I think it has a lot of potential but at the moment there are better solutions that are perhaps worth your attention. If (like me) you don't mind being a guinea Pig for a nifty little app like this then I'd recommend it. If however you are looking for a simple app launcher with no problems then I don't think this is for you...yet.

This seems similar to Proteron's Max Menus, which I have been using fr years. Of all the launchers and file finder apps it is one of the most configurable and least intrusive. I'm not sure why they don't market it more aggressively - I think its better than DragThing.

SunnyMenu was written as an application launcher to take up virtually no screen space, yet accessible via the mouse.

I prefer the visual approach to launching applications, I couldn't always remember the name of the application I wished to launch. To assist with this I also use categories such as Text, Imaging, Web which I've found makes it easier to find the application your looking for.

So instead of having 50 applications in your Dock, you could have 7 categories with 7 applications in each. So instead of choosing between 50, you only choose between 7, then choose between 7 again. This is the advantage of sub-menus. And for those programs you use all the time? Put them in the root menu for easy access.

Versus Butler, which is free, has far more features, and fits into the menubar wherever you want.

While other posters have claimed that this program is inferior to others (Butler, Quicksilver, Launchbar, etc.), it seems they have neglected to notice the key feature of this app that all others lack: a beautiful picture of a sun in your menu bar.

Not only are the fonts radically different than the OS X standard, the icons are 180 degrees from what we're used to.

Truly, a bold new step in design.

If you're looking to disrupt the hegemony of elegance cast over your machine by the folks at Apple: hook it up.
