Great little utility

A couple small suggestions for the developers:
A note explaining how the clock might change would be helpful. For me, the clock was losing the date when the hidden icons were collapsed. I fixed this by changing the Dock & Menu Bar system preferences from "show date when space allows" to "show date always".
I don't know if this second suggestion is even possible, but... it would be great if the Hidden Bar icon (the small <) could also be hidden. Maybe just an option to pick the color of the icon so I could get something very close to the background color of the menu bar?
Again, this is a great little utility. I've had it for only a few minutes, and I already love it. Thank you so much for making this available to everyone!

Exactly the thing i needed

If you want to have multiple apps easy-access in your menu bar, but only want to see some more than others, then this is the app for you. When I open chrome, the things like "File," "Edit," "View," ect. take up half of the menu bar when I open it, and all apps I have linked to my menu bar are hidden because of this. Most of the time its the apps that I need that are hidden, but this app solves that problem for me. With 'Hidden Bar,' I'm able to choose which apps I want sabotaged by chrome's overbearing presence in the menu bar, which is a huge help. Thank you hidden bar!!! Excellent app!!

Excellent with one major annoyance

This is a fantastic alternative to Bartender, but it has one REALLY annoying quirk. Whenever you install a new program that adds a menu icon, it automatically gets added to the Always Hidden section rather than to the Always Visible section.

This is a really strange/dumb design choice, because if you didn't know the new app was going to have a menu icon, you never will unless you happen to be looking through the hidden icons and find it. Also, since I don't install new apps super frequently, I sometimes find myself forgetting that Hidden Bar does this. As a result, I'll sometimes think the app isn't working properly or isn't running because I don't see it in the menu bar.

I have to dock it 1 star for this bizarre decision. Otherwise, it'd be a 5-star app!
