OS X menu bar applets

In print / Latest / Online / Technology

OS X menu bar applets are more useful than you might think. They come in a range of types and if you have them load on boot-up you’ve got a series of functions immediately available on your desktop without having to load or search for a thing. I wrote a feature guide to applets for MacFormat issue 256 and I’m happy to say you can read it online over at the TechRadar Pro website, if you’re so inclined.

The print layout was designed by steadfast crayon Alex Thomas, who commissioned the gifted A.K.A. (Ben the Illustrator) to produce the delightful opening illustration you can see above.
