An issue when working on a Mac with a small screen is that some of your Menu Bar applications aren't visible, especially if you have many status bar icons. This program provides you with a simple solution for this issue by hiding app menus from your status bar and revealing your entire collection of Menu Bar icons.

The application doesn't require a help manual as it's very intuitive with easy to configure settings. Its icon is displayed on both your Menu Bar and Dock. Also, it uses minimum CPU resources and can automatically be launched at system startup.

An advantage is that you can define a global hotkey for immediately hiding the menu of the app you're currently using. Another way to hide it from your status bar is by clicking the app's icon from your Dock.

Furthermore, the app plays a sound file and an animation every time you hide menus from your status bar. These two features can be disabled if necessary. I also like the fact that the Dock icon shows you the time.

All in all, the program provides you with an easy and quick way to clear your status bar. So, you should definitely try it, especially if you're working on a small screen.
