Good episode and like others, it prompted me to add a few new menu bar apps. I’m also in the camp of using Bartender on a 27" iMac. Not only do I have so many apps up there that it starts to impinge on some applications’ menus, but it helps me find what I need on a priority basis. Here are a few I use that weren’t mentioned in the show:
MacUpdater - A software update engine like the MacAppStore, but for everything else.
Mountain - Keeps certain network shares always mounted and certain backup drives unmounted when not in use.
Clean Shot - Screenshot utility
Unclutter - Notepad, file shelf, and clipboard storage
Keybase - PGP crypto storage
Encrypt Me VPN
Drafts for Mac beta
Yoink - File shelf
Google Drive Filestream
Ubersicht - Desktop widgets
Bumpr - Web browser chooser
