Great Bartender Replacement

I was looking for something that would allow the same functionality as Bartender for macOS 12 (Preview) and noticed that this looked like a watered down version of it. It's actually cheaper and although it wasn't as intuitive to set up for the first time, it includes all of the functionality that I care for. I would recommend it for all those in the same situation as I was. The only thing I would improve is simply hiding the "Hidden" label when showing on hidden items by themselves.

use instead of Bartender

I was gave up on Bartender after it was sold to a company that was not up-front about its intentions (possible advertising/tracking users). Barbee has performed admirably thus far as a replacement.

My only suggestion is to move the "Preferences" option out of the "More" menu and place it directly into the right-click menu for Barbee, so I can more easily get to the settings for adjusting the menu bar layout. Thank you!

A Great App To Hide Menu

After the latest update, this App is now the best in hiding your menu. When the menu is shown it shows up in a way that if you have a MacBook with a notch, the items will show right under the menu line so they can be seen and not be obscured by the notch.
