Hide Dropbox menubar icon.

Overview

MacDropHide has been discontinued as its functionality has been replaced by Broomstick.

MacDropHide is a simple app that painlessly allows Mac users to hide the Dropbox menubar icon. MacDropHide works by taking Dropbox's icon files ("dropbox-box-icon-1.png", for instance), and renaming them to have ".hidden" on the end ("dropbox-box-icon-1.png.hidden", for instance). This means that when Dropbox goes looking for the icon files, it can't find them, and subsequently doesn't show anything in the menubar.

What's new in MacDropHide

Yay, an application to hide a another applications icon (ha ha). Seriously though, I am using it, and it does exactly what it says. If it remains stable, I would update my rating.

There were a number of requests from Dropbox users to be able to hide the Dropbox menubar icon. Dropbox hasn't yet provided this functionality, so I created MacDropHide to fill this gap. This app certainly isn't for everyone, but there are a number of users for whom this app is very useful. Thanks, Sebastian
