MenuBarFilter for Mac's richly contrasted interface enhances the appearance of the Mac OS X menu bar, increasing visibility; but a lack of any customization options lessens its overall usefulness.

As soon as you unzip MenuBarFilter for Mac, it automatically transforms the muted grays of the Mac OS X menu bar into a richly contrasted palette of dark gray and white, reminiscent of the iOS menu bar. The enhanced contrast greatly increases visibility, making the menu bar options much easier to read and navigate. The application offers no user-defined options to control the contrast, color, or appearance of the menu bar filter, though; so if you aren't happy with the changes, this isn't the app for you. A lack of documentation and no uninstall feature are also problematic for this application. In order to disable the application and restore the default contrast of the OS X menu bar, we had to open Terminal and input the command "killall MenuBarFilter." Allowing users complete control of the color and contrast would have been preferable, but if you like the changes it makes, they couldn't be easier to apply.

MenuBarFilter for Mac offers a free solution for users seeking to enhance the visibility of the Mac OS X menu bar. It isn't without problems, though; but for those who don't mind the lack of options, this is a very easy way to make your menu bar easier to read.
