[prMac.com] Palo Alto, California - Indeeo today is pleased to announce the release of MenuStrip 3.5, now available exclusively on the Mac App Store. MenuStrip 3.5, an update to the popular menu bar utility application, adds support and compatibility for Mac OS X 10.6 and the Mac App Store.
MenuStrip allows users to create their own fully customizable drop-down menus for easy access to their most commonly used applications, files, and folders. Users can also create "Action Buttons" that launch, hide, and quit groups of applications at once. MenuStrip's menu items can be displayed in the menu bar, or in a floating collapsable control strip that can be placed anywhere on the screen.
Along with the ability of creating custom menu items, MenuStrip includes several built-in menu utilities: a fast launcher that quickly finds and opens files and applications, an application switcher menu with options to hide background apps and the desktop, a customizable date/calendar item with alarm settings, and more.
MenuStrip can also be expanded with plugins. The currently available plugins allow menu bar access to Address Book contacts, an easily browse-able organized Safari history, and iTunes playback controls.
The first version of MenuStrip originally launched on Mac OS X Public Beta, before the official release of Mac OS X (10.0). With that initial release, Mac OS X did not yet have any menu bar tools ("Menu Extras") and MenuStrip filled the void for users who were transitioning from Mac OS 9 and longed for the missing menu and control strip features. Mac OS X has evolved a great deal since then - and MenuStrip has evolved along with it, adding many more features to the menu bar and improving upon those which were later added to the OS.
