FruitMenu

3.8.4
04 March 2011

Customize the Apple Menu and contextual menus.

Overview

FruitMenu is a haxie that gives you the ability to customize the Apple Menu and contextual menus. Using a visual editor you can edit the contents of the menus to suit your needs and taste.

FruitMenu will also display the contents of the FruitMenu Items folder inside of your Library folder, launch applications and shell scripts from the Apple Menu and contextual menus, to allow easy file navigation and launching.

To make the haxie completely flexible and customizable, you can assign hotkeys to particular menu items.

What's new in FruitMenu

Version 3.8.4:
  • Addressed an issue that caused some people to get a bad binary of FruitMenu. Very bizarre to debug. Even more bizarre to fix. Involved a shotgun, some fish, and one of those things coopers help make.
  • I miss Ned.

All Unsanity links are dead and lead nowhere. I'm afraid Unsanity and all it's software are now history.

This is so sad. I've gotten used to the convenience of FruitMenu and WindowShade. The WindowShade function was part of OS 9; I can't imagine why Apple hasn't incorporated it in OS X yet.

Living without FruitMenu and WindowShade SUCKS! I LOVED those haxies! I've essentially donated fairly-serious bucks to Unsanity - apparently, I'm not alone in that - in the hope that Unsanity would live. But, it looks as though it has died and taken my money with it. If prized, small-times developers like Unsanity can't or don't or won't stay in business, why don;t they open-source their stuff, instead of leaving their patrons twisting slowly in the wind? Yet, not even authors of freeware will do that.

Time for Unsanity to shift their "workers" from Lion development to Mountain Lion (10.8 just announced by Apple). Hey Unsanity - I'll be using 10.8 before you get Lion versions out. I pre-paid for the Lion versions but put my money to use for Mountain Lion versions NOW and perhaps I'll see your haxies working again before I die.

I paid too but I hope they skip 10.8 and start on 10.9. I probably won’t live long enough but maybe...

As of today - 8-Apr-2012 - it has been 5 months since Unstanity posted their last blog tempting us to send them money to "vote" for which haxie would be the first updated to Lion compatibility. Silence since then...

I'm so glad I stopped relying on this company to actually do what they say.

You *paid*? ... God, I was tempted, I miss WindowShade so bad—those little windows on the desktop so you knew what was open ... even the damn roll up in place. This is suffering - and Apple doesn't care. Unsanity is apparently unable to care ...

"REQUIREMENTS PPC / Intel, Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later" is dishonest. As their web site and other posters point out, NONE of their products works with Lion. For me, FruitMenu is a must-have. I have purchased Lion but I will not update from SnowLeo until FruitMenu works. If this bunch of asshole developers don't get their act together, looks like I'll be stuck in the wilderness with SnowLeo. Or until Apple wakes up and restores the functionality of the OS9 Apple menu.

Finderpop may be a decent alternative. I too was a diehard FM user but upgraded to Lion without even thinking that it wouldn't work. But since upgrading to it, and buying a new mini that will ONLY run 10.7, I don't miss it. I di miss MenuMaster from time-to-time. Unsanity is a pretty terribly run biz. C'mon, still not up to date? They sent out an email asking for money for something that hasn't been released yet? What are they smoking crack down there?

I got an early morning email from Unsanity stating "Currently, none of our products are enabled to work on Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion." Any developer knew that since Lion's release in BETA in 2010 - I suppose Unsanity doesn't care to pay the small price to be an Apple Developer and just noticed. Well the really odd thing is the email says Lion version will be worked on but to encourage development they want us to purchase the current version of our favorite Haxies NOW (at a discount) even though those still won't work. Give them $$$ in advance and then not had to "pay again" for the updated version. (Last time we got "donation nags.") Seems rather shady / risky to me. The old "take the money and run" or as I often wonder about the developer "take the money and die again never to be heard from." I really have depended on FruitMenu and WindowShade for many years and many versions but I have no respect for Unsanity as developers or their lack of support.

I know! This company has become a joke and I've moved on from using their stuff! Nice of them to let us all know that they're almost ready to charge for something that should have been rolled out months ago. This company should crash and burn!

For those wishing to find out if your particular Unsanity app is compatible with Lion follow this link: http://www.roaringapps.com/apps:table Looks like another long wait til they're compatible again. The good thing is Sounds4fun is a great replacement for Xounds and the developer is working on a Lion compatible version. The list I mentioned above says the current version works with some glitches. Since I haven't updated yet I'm not sure what those glitches are.

Nothing on their web site about Lion. In fact one of the FAQ entries is still "Will your haxies be compatible with SNow Leopard." As much as I use and depend on FruitMenu and Windowshade I suspect that I will have to do without them for 12 months or more as I did when Snow Leopard arrived. What horrid support from a company of past glory. No excuses this time (like someone had a baby I think for SL?) Surely you can pay $99 a year to be an Apple Developer and test Lion.

Developer support is absolutely horrendous for this app- and Menumaster. I contacted both their sales and tech support team- never heard back. FruitMenu was interfering with another program- as reported by the error log (believe it was Overflow). Stopped using, problem solved. MenuMaster interfered with Dashboard. Deep Sixed that, and problem solved. I have requested a refund from the developers- no response. Waiting for PayPal to refund my money. I bet they won't have any more success in getting reply from the developers than I. And, it's a shame. I enjoyed some of the functionality of FruitMenu. And, believe it or not, liked the silly effect Menu Master has on label on drop down menus. The cool thing, is though I deinstalled the program- the silly effect continues. Not a total waste. Hope you have better luck with their customer support than I enjoyed. Bob
