Dale Gillard has introduced WPXO 1.0, a companion app for Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 users. It requires Mac OS X 10.6 or higher, costs US$0.99 and is available in the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.

WPXO is an app for your Mac’s menu bar that’s all about speed and convenience when using Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook applications, says Gillard. It remembers the last 30 Microsoft Office documents opened, so you can quickly launch your Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook applications.
