Broomstick is the easiest way to hide menubar icons that you don't like. While most apps that create a menubar icon allow you to hide it, some apps don't provide this option. Broomstick lets you take back control of your menubar, by letting you hide these offending icons! Additionally, Broomstick lets you control the order of icons in your menubar.

Broomstick can currently hide the following apps: Air Video Server, Avira, BetterTouchTool, Boom, CPU Speed Accelerator, Caffeine, Chronicle Mini, ChronoSync, Click.to, CloudApp, CrashPlan, Dimmer, DropCopy, Dropbox, Droplr, Evernote, Flutter, Flux, FullControlHelper, Garmin ANT Agent, Google Drive, GrabBox, GrabBox2, Growl, GrowlTunes, Hiss, Insync, Kuvva, Last.fm, LogMeIn, LogMeIn Hamachi, Memeo Backup, MiddleClick, MuteCon, NoSleepHelper, Nocturne, OpenDNS Updater, PleaseSleep, PuntoSwitcher, Quiet Read, RemotelessHelper, Seamless, SnagIt, Splashtop Streamer, Spotlight, ToDoHelper, Wakoopa Tracker, Wallpaper Clocks, iTeleport Connect.

If you would like to request another app be able to be hidden, then this can be done from within Broomstick.

What's New

Version 0.91:
  • Updates to be compatible with new Flux and Dropbox updates. It seems that on some systems Broomstick takes a long time to un-hide the Dropbox icon, but if you give it enough time (2-3 mins), it gets there eventually.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.6 or later, Intel
