How many menubar apps (including Apple's) show up on your menubar




My menubar apps are central to my workflow, and most I discovered by accident, became invaluable, and have stayed for years. Here is my current run across the left upper left:

- Mac Volume (built-in). Hold option to see both Inputs and Outputs
- Dropbox
- CloudApp. Still getting used to this one, but it automatically uploads screenshots and screen recordings (selected partial or full screen). Great for showing team members something I'm trying to do or need teaching how to do.
- HiddenMe. Hides all icons in the Desktop
- The Clock by seense. Best world clock I've ever found. Takes place of SysPref clock (you can turn that off). I hide the Calendar part, and just use the custom list of times around the world.
- CoinTick. Tracks the crypto I'm watching.
- aText. Best text replacement app I've found, been using it for years, constantly updated and worth the one-time $5 fee.
- Default Folder
- Brightness Slider. LOVE this freebie, use it every night.
- Horo. Love this, too. It's an egg timer, for those times when I need to remind myself to leave for an appt, turn something off on the stove, remove the tea bag, call xyz back as I said I would, etc
- TextSniper. Highlight any frozen text anywhere and it'll accurately translate it into a text doc. Like the $700 OCR programs from days of yore. I think it's $7 or $10 for 3 Macs. A great deal.
- Backblaze. I could probably hide this icon since I rarely need to use it.
- Keyboard Maestro
