  • Application Badges are readable unlike the Dock's
  • Customizable uBar menu

uBar is beyond repair. Guys, use mac-taskbar.com it is lightweight .. still in development but does not slow down your computer as much.

after few minutes of clicking here and there i can say the demo works just fine. Only when I move the menubar to the right - then on mouse-over both appear - ubar and dock. Tested on MacOS Ventura.

Real crap. It's too bad they don't beta test. Crashes every single time I clicked on the far left ubar icon (start menu) Deleted...

An update was pushed yesterday that I hoped would bring stability. But the app crashes even more often than it did before now. I'm at the point now where I hope that another developer makes a similar app since it's obvious that this one isn't going to improve. Shame.

Great idea and concept, but the software is very buggy. On top of that, inexistent support (they just don't answer tickets - not even positive feedback ticket, which I opened at first when installing the software more than two months ago, before hitting the numerous bugs). It would be an awesome piece of software without all those issues, but unfortunately, it is totally unusable for me (the Dock just come back on it's own, on top of uBar and make the computer very sluggish when it does so I have to reboot every time) there are other minor issues and annoyance, but that one is the cherry on the top. Please wait before spending such amount of money on this software. At the time of writing this post, it is the latest 4.2.0 version. I wish I could get my money back until fixed. Brawer Software, please step up, you have something great in your hands if you fix it!
