In this section of MacMenuBar.com I post – on a regular basis – short interviews with MacOS users about which apps they use on their menu bar, and why. This time: Jeroen Disch.
Tell us about yourself
What is your current laptop / desktop?
A MacBook Pro from 2013. Still rocking hard 🙂
What menu bar apps do you use and why?
Dropbox: I mainly use it for quickly sharing a video of a mockup I made. Dropbox serves videos in a web player so everyone can watch it, no matter their system or platform, and no matter what the original format was (.mov, .mp4, .mpeg).
OneSwitch: It combines features that I used to have in separate apps: connect AirPods, Dark mode, Keep computer awake, Do not disturb.
Adobe Creative Cloud: nothing fancy, it keeps my Abode design apps updated.
Google Backup: I recently moved from Shoebox to Google Photos and this app copies all my photos that are in Apple Photos to Google Photos.
Recordit: it makes screen recordings which can be shared with a URL or as a GIF.
Tripmode: when I’m working on a location that has no WiFi and I have to use the internet connection of my phone, this app controls my data usage.
Spectacle: split your windows or make them fullscreen; this app controls your windows with keyboard shortcuts.
1Password: easy access to all my passwords.
Go For Facebook: Facebook in the menu bar. The app is discontinued, but it still works.
We Transfer: drag and drop files into the menu bar and WeTransfer uploads them and returns the share link.
Is there a menu bar app that doesn’t exist yet and should be invented?
A focus mode app. Turned on with one click, this app stops all notifications and hides all red badge app icons. So finally some deep work!
Want to share your Mac menu bar? That would me great!
