Review: Menuola for Mac makes viewing advanced menu bar options a lot easier

Display and explore advanced Mac OS X menu bar options with ease utilizing Menuola for Mac.

Menuola for Mac is a free application that allows Mac OS X users to display more menu bar options, ultimately making it easier to explore those that would otherwise be hidden due to lack of space. The trick is to get past an unintuitive interface and lack of helpful user guidance.

Menuola for Mac installs easily by dragging and dropping the contents of the unzipped file into the Applications folder. The main menu opens, displaying an "M" with basic options to check for updates, information about the application, and a how-to-use section. The information within the how-to-use section is difficult to understand, and users may struggle to grasp what features the application offers. The application has no interface and its sole function, expanding access to menu bar items that would otherwise be hidden, is severely limited due to lack of intuitive user controls. Overall, the application performed well, it was stable, and did not crash. However, the application suffers major deficiencies in terms of ease of use and information and support materials.

Menuola for Mac performs adequately and offers a free solution to users seeking to expand their access to menu bar items. This app is especially useful for those who tend to use more complex applications that include numerous menus, but casual users probably won't benefit from this app until it makes the process easier to understand.
