NoMenuBar is a simple application that allows users to remove the menu bar options and leave more room for add-ons (such as time, airport status, and more).

It will be very useful if you have a small screen (like on a laptop) or lots of right side items.

TO PX9-855:
So what if there's more of the same apps on the Mac community? Why is that a bad thing?

For example, there is tons of Application Launcher type of apps on MacUpdate, I can name a few here: Butler, Launch Bar, QuickSilver, TapTap, Spark, Overflow, ToDos, F10 Launch Studio, Sapiens, Trampoline, Atomic Beef, XMenu, HimmelBar, aLaunch, DragThing, DockSpaces...And tons more! I never heard anyone complained about "There just too much application launchers to chose from, darn it!" Actually most people likes to have choices, and people usually find a launcher that fits their needs.

COMMENT:
To me, NoMenuBar works and looks just like Menuola, but to me it's just another choice of the same. Maybe someone can tell me which app uses less cpu (and memory) in the long run. I see there is no way to make NoMenuBar (and Menuola) as a System Preference item, because seems to me they only show up when you click their Dock icons. I hate to say this, but I like to save more space on my Dock, too. I dislike to have one more Dock icon open if It ends up just launch something on my menu bar.

FOR DEVELOPERS, "MENU ITEM CONTAINER" IS WHAT WE URGENTLY NEED:
I think there should be a Menu Item Container for people who loves to use menu items. If anyone can make this concept realized, then this new app will act like another menu item, only it's a container, so it will list all the other menu items that have opened on my Mac, so I can save tons of menubar space no mater how much menu items I have launched!!! If any developer can make this concept work and usable, I would definitely worship him everyday and support his app!!! Seriously.

TIP:
I only have one "obvious" tip when use this app: If you have FriutMenu, you'll save even more menu space when launch NoMenuBar or Menuola.

Are you people for real? This is just another reinvention of the wheel...

Menuola does the same thing, for the same price - as in free. And this SINCE JANUARY LAST YEAR!

And there's always Minu, unlisted on MacUpdate. Also free...

@PX9-855 Clearly you're pretty upset about the foolishness of your fellow MacUpdate reviewers and I'm not sure if you already have done this, but if not, and for the sake of other equally upset reviewers, you can always add alternative suggestions above on the right under "OTHER PEOPLE SUGGEST". I'm just about to do it for your Minu suggestion.
