Reminder: You Should Read MacStories and Buy Bartender

One of the e-newsletters I actually read is MacStories’. If you aren’t already a subscriber, shame on you. You don’t know what you’re missing out on.

In today’s issue, Graham Spencer wrote about one of MacStories Favorites: Bartender for Mac. This is also one of my favorite third party apps. It collects apps that overflow your Menu Bar and puts them into a drawer, of sorts, that you can open and close. Graham:

If you are anything like us, you probably have a lot of menu bar icons - perhaps an excessive amount. If you're using a small 11" or 13" MacBook it can quickly become a little ridiculous. That's where Bartender comes in handy: it lets you hide some of those menu bar icons so that you only see them when you want to. This is great for those apps that don't let you hide the menu bar icon or for those that you use only occasionally but don't want to completely remove.

Here’s the kicker: If you were subscribed to MacStories newsletter, you would have been offered a promo code for Bartender that gives readers 33% off the regular $15 price of the app.
