FYI, if you guys have BetterTouchTool (as most of you have), this is useless. The feature is included in BTT

For years I've been using two high-resolution 24" monitors side by side. I usually prefer doing my work on the right-hand monitor and having reference material on the left side. The right hand monitor doesn't have a menubar, which makes things even worse. Since day one I've always dreaded needed to go into a menu, as it meant I had to STOP what I was doing, LOCATE the mouse cursor wherever it was hiding on the screen, MOVE IT ACROSS *TWO* SCREENS, find the MENU ITEM, click it, then RETURN THE CURSOR TO ITS OLD LOCATION AND RE-ACTIVATE the work area. Pure pain. To alleviate this, I use keyboard shortcuts as much as possible, but there's always that time when you need to access something that you either haven't bound to a keyboard shortcut, or just don't know the shortcut, especially if you need to do some action you only use rarely. Well, I had no idea a program like MenuPop existed, and it has completely solved the problem for me! I'm stunned! A simple keyboard press brings up the menu immediately, without having to interrupt my work! It is an INCREDIBLY good utility, allowing me to stay "in the zen" of what I am working on and quickly get to any action I need to perform. No longer do I dread going to the menus or even exploring things I hadn't seen in them before. You become a true menu warrior with this application! ;-) It's priced fairly, and the developer is very responsive. Please, if you have multiple screens, download the demo of this program and give it a try for your own sake. I am sure you will find it to be one of your ESSENTIAL pieces of Mac software!

I purchased this before it was on app store. I have had great response from the developer when I've had questions, and have experienced no problems whatsoever. This new release is great! Now if I could just remember to use it...lol

I think there is a serious bug When i run menupop and i switch with any application in fullscreen mode (lion style) i can't go back in normal mode because when i go to the top of the screen with the mouse there is no menubar anymore and no button for switching from fullscreen in normal mode The problem is solved with uninstalling menupop Please do something about it

This is a very useful little tool for those with a big screen and even more so in case of multiple displays. It allows you to keep your eyes focused on where you are currently working at instead of requiring them, and the mouse pointer, to travel to the top of the main display. This certainly is no big issue for all apps and activities, but for those where it makes a difference, the advantage is significant. Highly recommended!

Simple but very useful tool. Why isn't this included in OS X by default? ;) BTW doesn't work with OS X 10.7 DP2 Upgrade 2. It crashes the background app. But I am sure this will be addressed in a future update.

What is the difference to just hit Ctrl-F2? This default keyboard shortcut brings you to the desired menu too.

A gem that does precisely what it's intended to do and is worth every penny! Hisham is one of those developers who responds to issues and feature requests promptly, to boot.

Through the AppStore I have purchased and installed v1.2, which as of this morning (05FEB11) is still the only version available there. Yet here on MacUpdate there is this version 1.3.1 available. I don't understand. Plus, there doesn't appear to be any auto update feature built in to MenuPop. How does one update this app to the latest version through the AppStore or any other way? Thanks.

It is a perfectly crafted productivity enhancer. Try as I may, I cannot imagine a tweak that would improve upon it.

It would be nice if I could bind it to one of my mouse buttons. I have an extra button for my mouse (Mouse 4) that I use for Spaces. But I'd love to switch it out for MenuPop.

What would make this more useful is if one could access the menus without the need for the hotkey. Instead maybe a key plus right mouse click.

Now this is a nice app. The dev suggests using it in a multiple monitor setup, but I think it's just as useful if you have just one large display. It saves you from moving your mouse all the way to the top - especially helpful if you're a heavy keyboard user like me. Two things that bother me: - it's using over 16 MB of RAM currently, which may not seem much, but still I think it can be optimized better (OK, I know it's a 1.0 version) - the menu bar icon is ugly - please change it! (I don't need it myself and have turned it off, but others probably will keep it) Overall it's a great utility that fills a gap in the design of OS X.
