Highly recommended - a delight to clean up the Menu Bar - especially on 13" MBA with limited screen real estate. You can toggle each Menu Bar item to be either ignored or handled by Bartender, terrific customisation etc. I have 2 Menu Bar items at the right of my screen and the Menu Bar is wondefully uncluttered. But I have access to all my apps/Menu Bar items with one click!

The last time they updated Bartender (which was in 9/2013), they offered a temporary price break. I was really hoping they would do that this time too, since I missed out on the last one. So far, there is no sign of any such promotion.

Outstanding. Indispensable. The kind of tool that should already be built into the Mac OS.

Actually, the Beta 1.2.20 does work with 10.10 but it does not permit me to move all the menu bar icons....hopefully an update is on the way.

Found a conflict with Bartender's ability to move icons around in the menubar with BetterTouchTool installed. BetterTouchTool completely disables the feature in Bartender.

But if you quit BetterTouchTool, then you can rearrange the icons to your liking, and then relaunch BTT... an easy workaround since I find both of these utilities absolutely indispensable.

Bartender is what small screens need.
When space on your menu bar is at a premium, Bartender come to the rescue with flexible and easy configuration, it is exactly what I wished for when menu items started getting hidden by application menu. It works well, and has gotten very stable. It was well worth the $15, especially for people that have a lot of menu items such as menu meters or iStats, Fantasical, Dropbox or Copy, 1Password, Cookie, Little Snitch, Sophos, etc. that are making items fall off or make the menu bar too cluttered.

The only feature that would be on my wish list would be intelligent menu collision detection, that moved lower priority items to the bartender bar. This is something that would make it a 5 star app, but as it is it is more than recommended, and I won’t miss such a fantasy feature.

This is great, when it works, but it's gotten really buggy lately. Rearranging icons is quite difficult; they flicker back and forth and often don't stay where you put them.

Hope all the wrinkles are ironed out soon. I have tons of menubar doodads and this is really the only way to manage them (other than just turning most of them off and accepting the fact that you can't rearrange most 3rd party menus).

Follow-up: on my other Mac, I'm able to move my icons around without any of the problems I described above. It could be the graphics card, or it might be because I'm running dual displays.

The glitchy one:
MacBook Pro (late 2008)
GeForce 9600M (256 MB)
External 1920x1080 display

The one that works fine:
MacBook Air (mid 2012)
Intel HD Graphics 4000
No external monitor

Perhaps I'll give it a whirl next time my newer Mac is connected to an external display and see what happens then.

Clever application but I wish it was a little less costly. A reduced price would increase the applications bottom line--more people would pay for it. Any sales imminent?

I also have been wishing for a promotion for Bartender for many months. They do offer volume pricing, so if we could get at least five people to go in together, we could get it for $12 each (or $8 each with ten or more people) - but I'm just not sure if there's any safe way to coordinate something like that.

I decided to go ahead and purchase it several months ago and I am very happy since it works on all my OS X operating systems.....although, $15 is a little steep I like having an organized menu bar.
