      Simple usage, and with Bartender 3, it's way cheaper for the same.

      benkelly So fast, Bartender usually took a about a second to show the hidden icons. Hidden bar shows and hides instantly. Also open source.

      Rearrange your menu bar items in any order you want, and keep your menu bar order between restarts. Simply rearrange them the natural OS X way with [cmd] Drag & Drop.

      AccessMenuBarApps vs Bartender opinions
      This alternative is disputed. AccessMenuBarApps is still a legitimate alternative to Bartender, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      This app does not hide the menu icons on the right side. Only the left side. This is a dissapointment

      No setup required. Simply hides temporarily the menu items of the active application. Can be triggered by mouse action and keyboard shortcut.
