The Alice Dev Team has introduced MenuMate 1.0 for Mac OS X. Developed exclusively to help users get access of an app’s menu bar item whenever it’s necessary, the app displays a copy of an app’s menu bar items whenever the user wants, right next to the cursor.

“All you need to do is assign a hotkey or mouse button (other than left or right) to it,” says Stanislav Kuptsov, CEO of the Alice Dev Team. “If you have a Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad, you can use Magic Prefs (free) to create a virtual centre button for them. To access MenuMate’s preferences, just click on the octopus icon in the menu bar.”

MenuMate hooks itself into the Mac’s menu bar. The icon has to be accessed only once, in order to configure the app.

MenuMate requires Mac OS X 10.6. It costs US$4.99 and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.
