MacMenuBar – Directory of Hundreds of Menu Bar Apps

Giles Turnbull shared a link today to a site I didn’t know:

It’s a directory of 950+ menu bar apps for macOS. I browsed it a bit, and while each page is a bit short (5 items per page), it’s great to discover new tools – and also check out UI design trends in menu bar apps.

For example, I’m surprised that there are still so many NSPopover style windows with the speech-bubble pointy thing (because almost all apps I use don’t use popovers anymore). At the same time, there are many apps with what looks like custom NSMenus to embed more complex views as menu items.
