AppMenuBoy... When Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) changed the way that folders are represented in the Dock, I lost a handy start menu made by dragging the Applications folder to the end of the dock.

AppMenuBoy is a small Cocoa application that creates a hierarchical menu, in the dock, and when it is the frontmost app, in the menu bar, of your apps. It only shows apps. If a folder has a single app, it hoists the app up, so no subfolders of exactly one app.

What's New

Version 1.0.4:
  • As the directories change, AppMenuBoy automatically tracks those changes.
  • AppMenuBoy now uses the localized name of Apps and folders, not the hidden file name.
  • AppMenuBoy now sorts its menu (since localization can change the order.)
  • Now has a preference to skip folders with parenthesized names. Example: (OldStuff)


Mac OS X 10.5 or later
