I've been able to find http://www.macbartender.com/ that allows to organize and clean up Mac OS X menu bar.

Are there any alternatives to this application?

  • I am just surprised that I can't find any alternatives, there are usually more than one application for a given problem – katzmopolitan May 5 '14 at 20:22

    Please list what features you want and then those that do use Macs (ie not me) can make better suggestions. – Nick Dickinson-Wilde May 5 '14 at 20:59

This is a very vague question, but some programs with similar features to Bartender are:

  1. Zibity's 'Broomstick':

    Broomstick is the easiest way to hide menubar icons that you don’t like. While most apps that create a menubar icon allow you to hide it, some apps don’t provide this option. Broomstick lets you take back control of your menubar!


  2. AccessMenuBarApps:

    AccessMenuBarApps is a simple app that gives the user instant access to all menubar apps by showing a reduced app menu (so that there is more space for menubar apps). Activating/Deactivating of the reduced app menu can be triggered by keyboard shortcut, mouse gesture, click on the menubar icon or click on the dock icon.
