This is the Pro version of the best Mac app for Facebook with these amazing extra features: Color-coded menubar alerts, Desktop mode with chat, Popup notifications, Stealth mode, Full screen support and much more!

MenuTab Pro for Facebook is an incredibly slick and gorgeous app for quickly accessing your Facebook account directly from your Mac's menu bar. It is one of the most popular and actively used apps on the entire Mac App Store, with over 2 million happy users!

Why is MenuTab Pro the best app of its kind? Good question, allow us to explain just how fully loaded this app is:

⁕ Instant access to Facebook via your Mac's menu bar:
Quickly take a peek at your Facebook account at the click of a button and also via its customisable hot key (ctrl + F).

⁕ Awesome color-coded notifications with audio alerts:
We've made it really simple to distinguish between new notifications via our menu bar icon. A gold icon means you have a new friend request; red is a new wall post/like/poke; and green is a new inbox message. Finally, a flashing blue icon indicates a new chat message from a friend!

⁕ Choose between desktop & mobile modes:
Want a no-nonsense clean cut view of your Facebook account? Then the mobile mode is your best bet. For those that want the full Facebook experience, just toggle over to the desktop mode and enjoy.

⁕ Popup notifications support:
Our customers asked for it and we delivered. Each of the notification types explained above now have their own corresponding notification popup. You do not need Growl installed for these popup notifications to work. However, if you do have Growl installed, you'll be able to customise the popup notification bubbles via the Growl app itself. If you are running Mountain Lion, then you get notification center alerts!

⁕ Facebook Chat support:
Facebook chat with all the trimmings, just like it is in your web browser, but with the added benefit of notifications :)

⁕ Ninja stealth mode:
Use the nifty opacity control slider to determine the transparency of your MenuTab Pro app window. Stealth mode lets you sneakily check on your Facebook news feed etc without it catching the eyes of others :)

⁕ Resizable window:
Just as it states, resize the tab/window to your liking!

⁕ Slick touch gestures support:
One of our most loved features, feel right at home with touch gestures support for back/forward and scrolling.

⁕ Fullscreen support for OS X Lion users:
The full Facebook experience with no distractions!

⁕ Accessibility options:
Customise the font size, use the right click menu options such as text to speech and make life easier with standard hotkeys like cmd + R to refresh. Ah, it's the small things that make us happy :)

⁕ Regular free updates:
MenuTab Pro is one of the most actively maintained and updated apps on the store and we aim to keep it that way! Please spread the word and keep sending us your feedback!

Atdmt? Why? - Beware this App comes with Atdmt: Atdmt is a low risk tracking cookie that monitors user’s Internet activity or browsing habits and collects personal information while surfing the web. While there are many harmless cookies spread on the Internet, this one is capable to record every step you make on your computer. That means next to the information about what sites you visit or how many advertisements you click, it can gather sensitive data as well, like, credit card numbers, passwords or loggin information. Some users have already reported this adware for identity theft, so we recommend following Atdmt removal guide as soon as possible to avoid such unpleasant discovery.

Version 6.9
Review by gangadhar_gs

Fiplab spammy startup is a pain - I use this product to keep Facebook to its own sandbox. But Fiplab makes it very painful by showing ads for their other apps. Everytime you open this app, you have to wade through an ad for Fiplabs other apps! This is not done. I will be reporting them to Apple also to their spammy nature. Update - May 2017 - For the last one month, the app has started misbehaving. Facebook complains that my browser is too old. The timeline is not visible clearly, the photos are messed up. All in all, app cannot be used. Wrote to customer support, did the usual delete and reinstall but no luck. Do not buy until this bug is fixed.

Version 6.9
Review by robojester

Awesome - This app is really great. It has saved my bacon from the Timeline feature of Facebook too. I'll probably be one of the last holdouts, but it has been really awesome. The only thing is, I think they should look into whether they can really be forced to call it MenuTab… It used to be called FaceTab, and that is what it SHOULD be called. I was again asked to leave a review. It is still an awesome app. It had a few rough versions, but the last version is quite nice. I never use the Facebook web interface anymore. I usually leave it running. It is pretty great. The only thing it is really missing, is a feature that would sort your Facebook contacts by latest updates so that you could go through them easily (or better yet, present you a feed with all of the “latest” from ALL of your facebook contacts, or at least ones you want included). I know facebook has a few ways to organize things, but really, if this app handled that, it would definitely be better than anything facebook has now, I’m sure.

Version 6.9
Review by Nyobie

Addicting app - Well, I just got myself my first MacBook Pro. It's a 15-inch with Retina and I'm astounded by the graphics. I sit near this thing contantly and check my facebook feeds using this app. The notification settings are quite handy and after several days of intense use including a lot of multi-tasking while keeping the app running, I've had no crashes, no quirks, and have found nothing to complain about. Settings are straightforward and all the things I most commonly do in the browser versio of FB are at my fingertips with this app. If you haven't tried it and your computer has sufficient specs to run this app, you won't be let down with this version. I love version 5.9 of this app!! UPDATE on Version 6.9 of this app. I’ve had some crashes and periodic freezes where I’ve had to shut down the app and re-start it which is unusual for Mac apps I’ve used. It’s still a decent app with the convenience of an all-in-one access of key features. I would like it even more if the window could be moved around the screen by grabbing the menu bar at the top instead of at the bottom. That’s counter-intuitive and it’s the only app I’ve used so far, that doesn’t allow you to move it across the screen by grabbing the area at the top of the window. Strange. I like the notifications feature where the icon in the system tray turns colors based on what the notification is for. If it were a little more stable, I’d give it a 5 star rating but since I’ve had some quirky things happen with it, I give it a solid 4 star rating basedon verison 6.9.

Review by jamieetran

SUPER DISAPPOINTED - I used to abosolultey love this app - especially when I got it sometime last year. But since sometime in the begining of 2017, the app has been buggy as hell, freezing when i click on the notifications that pop up and often time when i am in the middle of typing a response to a facebook message the app will just free itself and not disappear when I click over to a new application. I wish there were a way for me to get my money back espeically for the purchase of a premium application.
