--- Top Productivity Paid #5 Worldwide ---
---Now Ready for Yosemite!---
Whether you have large monitor or multiple monitors, having to lookup and reach over to get to an app’s menu is pain. You lose your place and the repeated motion is hard on your wrist.
MenuMate puts your app’s menus were you need them - at your cursor. Just click your mouse or hit a hot key - no weird shortcuts to remember, no taking your eyes off your work! Not only does MenuMate speed things up, but it takes the pain out of working by preventing repetitive strain on your wrist.
FAST - side-by-side tests have shown that MenuMate is 50% to 70% faster than the nearest competitor.
- Mouse button or Hot Key activated – you choose
- Fast menu popup
- Displays shortcuts if you want to use them
- Supports virtually any application
- unable to save hotkey
- MenuMate doesn't work with Chrome

Octopus is cool :) - I am a power Photoshop user and have to remember a lot of hotkeys. Now I have MenuMate and the only hotkey I need is ALT+Z. P.S. Octopus is cool :)
Inaccurately described usage; Too limited in ability - The MenuMate description suggests any mouse button can be used, but the app says you can’t choose the left or right mouse buttons, that you should try the middle button. But I have USBOverdriveX controlling scrolling with the middle button. If USBOverdriveX is disabled, MenuMate works with the middle button, but I need the scrollling function more. Keyboard shortcuts are too cumbersome, so this app is useless to me from the start. Sorry I bought.

Use this constantly - I constantly use this app as a shortcut to viewing application shortcuts by group. Anybody who is keyboard focused will like this app as it does exactly as you would want - access menu items quickly. I have used similar apps that got the job done, but found this one after they stopped working after macOS updates.
Great time saver - UPDATE: In case anyone is wondering: It’s June 2017, and it’s been almost a year since the last update, but the app still works as advertised. My review below still stands (including my missive about the icon ;). MenuMate is another one of those utilities you didn't know you needed until you start using it (PopClip, Annotate, and Moom being other examples that fall into this category). What a time saver; if you are working on documents that require multiple (or frequent) trips to the menu bar to locate commands (because you can’t remember all of the shortcuts or there are none), get this app. At first I was skeptical shelling out the $$ for an app that, judging by the icon alone, looks a bit outdated to the eyes of Yosemite users (perhaps even relegated to the development graveyard), but I decided to give it a shot anyway; and I’m glad I did. The only thing I don’t like is the icon; it’s ugly and not at all representative of what this app does — hope the developer gets it fixed; soon. :)
