Thank goodness for SecondBar - yes El Capitan has one of sorts. You can only have a native second menu bar on a thunderbolt screen if you treat it as a space which in turn means you cannot drag one window across onto the other screen and see bits of the window on both screens - Surely i am not the only one with 2 27inch screens and no iPad!

I have to keep looking because what I wanted was an additional menu bar on the SAME screen. I hope that's possible because I've run out of space, and I don't like the idea of multiple monitors at all.

It's very dark. Why is it so dark? It should match the style of the existing menubar. It's free, I get it, but I wish it wasn't so dark. I almost didn't notice it there after I started the app.

Not bad for a free app. Not what I was expecting either. Would like an App that would turn my 3 monitors into one big one, Nvidia Surround comes to mind. Just duplicate the app and then launch the new copy if you want a menubar on more than just one screen.

Great app. Now can you make it for all monitors. For more then just a 2nd monitor. Great job. I would pay 4.99 for version that would add this function to all monitors. Thank you for creating this little applet.

Coming from the world of UltraMon I was expecting quite a bit from a multi monitor app. SecondBar isn't bad. It's definitely worth the price.

I found this very useful, until I realized that Secondbar is still displayed when the screen is locked (as other have commented below). Would be great if this were fixed. (Tested with SecondBar 1.1 on Lion 10.7.4.)

Not a lot of features... just a second menubar for your secons monitor. Just the way it's supposed to work. For all you long distance mouse runners - you no more need to move cursor from the extra 22" screen to the iMac's 27" screen and to the menubar...

Works great on macpro 10.6.8! Essential for a multi-monitor display. When going fullscreen the bar stays on top, which sometimes means clicking the hide button, but other than that fantastic free app!!

First problem is that 1.1 does not work well with FF (3.6.17) on Mac OS X.6.7. It often stops responding. Going back to 0.968 works best at this time. Would be nice if it worked with other utils like FinperPop which can trigger by clicking on blank space in menubar. Would also be nice if Menu Bar items could be supported, selectively, though not as critical. Rating is for v1.1. Rating for 0.968 would be 2.5

Simple, functional, and free. I was afraid this was dead with the advent of Lion, but here we are with a update only one day later. Thank you!

Ease of Use: 5 Value: 5 (Free for how long I wonder...) Stability: 5 (Hasn't crashed yet!) Features: 2.5 Would have given it five stars 'cause all I wanted was a menu bar on my other monitor. I would also have been looking for a window management software, but Secondbar already has some promising features. Promising, because they don't all work right on my set up. Yet. Overall, 5, 'cause I expect ease of use, value and stability from ALL of my software, so that doesn't count as much as features. Features are where it's at. The rest is all either pass or fail. This passes, but needs some work in the features area. Better, IMHO, than Menueverywhere. I certainly DON'T want menus with every single window. clutter, clutter, clutter! And, with that feature turned off, Menueverywhere is just Secondbar without the window management.

This is a good app. Would be great app if the menu didn't show up on my second monitor when the screen was locked. Would be nice if this was fixed so my co-workers couldn't open a hundred windows when my screen was locked.

Apps that require intensive menubar usage like Photoshop or Illustrator on a second monitor really suffer without this app on OSX. When tweaking effects or making minor adjustments you can be back and forth between your document and the menu hundreds of times. If that menu is thousands of pixels away on the other monitor you can reach a point of frustration pretty quickly. There are other popup solutions but SecondBar is a simple duplicate of the original menu on the second monitor. This is the same workflow you're used to so there is no additional frustration. Thanks SecondBar, I LOVE this app. It's one of my top 10.

I use Parallels a lot. If there is a way that Secondbar will not overlap with a maximized MS Windows, that would be awesome. Besides overlapping, I also noticed MS Windows flickers a lot when it is maximized. But I LOVE the shortcut where I can snap Mac Windows left, right and maximize. It enhances my productivity 10 folds!
