I've been using Bartender for years. I don't know why I hadn't reviewed it here yet. I have bunch of Menu Bar icons, mostly for work-related apps that run in the background, and to which I need quick access. I also hate clutter. Bartender solves that problem. I can tuck away all but the most essential icons, and hide things that I don't need up there because they're accessible via keystrokes (Spotlight, Notifications). I've tried similar apps, but Bartender has the best UI/UX by far. Having said that, occasionally icons get rearranged, and getting them to stay put isn't as easy as it should be. But that's the only reason I'm docking it a star.

Sorry MU, a stupid question... This is marked as Bartender 4.10.2, and yet the description and downloaded app are stating version 3.1.25, ... your fingers slipped? Well... Anyway version 4 is still in beta testing and will be available only when Big Fur is officially out since it will be the minimum system requirement. hope it helps... ops forgot to state that actually Bartender 4.10.2 Do exists, BUT its a World of Warcraft add-on... go figure

I've been using Bartender from version 1. It just works. The dev keeps it working and better over time. I haven't found any substantial need to look elsewhere. It's in my essential utility toolkit on all my Macs.

My solution: Turn off all the unnecessary menubar icons in every app I use. $15 saved.

I was okay with the price, and liked the app for a long time, but now I realize they're 'recording the screen', I'm not so okay with it anymore. Don't care what they say, they shouldn't be recording the screen. Hope they 'fix' this and keep their screen recording an option for those who don't care about privacy.

I love the app, paid for v2 and got v3 as a free update. Now with the Catalina update, Bartender "needs" Screen Recording Permission ... I know the developer says it is really not recording the screen ... but, since it's "not recording" the screen, and instead it captures images of the menu bar, it is technically "recording" the screen even if it's capturing images so the updates and preferences can work? I'm truly confused by this, and uninstalled ... sadly I'm back to all the icons on my menu bar.

I've tried them all. I kept coming back to Bartender for stability, ease of setup, and the fact that I've yet to have to wait for updates to work on an OS update. Vanilla, Dozer, and most all the other similar apps all work well, and some are even free. But they all lack what makes Bartender the king of the hill. As far as I'm concerned, with very little exception, the only people who wouldn't prefer to have Bartender are the ones who habitually claim an app is "too pricey for what it does" and that it needs to cost $X and let the sales volume offset the difference. No matter what the app does or what the price is, they claim it needs to cost less (usually about 30-50% less). They also tend not to know jack-sh!t about app development and sales.

My bar was getting out of hand. Bartender is the first app I've seen that makes it manageable.
