    "A great addition to the collection of Mac tools I have. Being used to work in Microsoft, I find Magnets very intuitive, and by that I mean that it makes it easy to work with a multitude of windows opened at the same time, just the way Microsoft does it. I know that Mac has caught up with that recently, but Magnets is still ahead of the pack in terms of flexibility and power. It really makes it so much easier to arrange and rearrange your workspace, without even wondering how to do it - that's how user-friendly it is. Amazing!"

    "This is a cool app for macs that lets you customize you menu bar and change things around quite a bit. I love all the features it has and it's a must have for me now. It's one of those apps that you didn't know you needed until you try it out."

    "As someone who sits on the computer all day for work, f.lux is a game changer. I'm very sensitive to bluelight on the screen - it really gives me a headache. f.lux has helped this immensely! It's also so nice to have the change of light on my computer since I am in a windowless cubicle for most of the day. Honestly I think I've even been sleeping better since using f.lux"

    "This isn't a menu bar app at all. It password protects apps so other people cannot use them or mess things up, but this doesn't do anything for the menu bar. Has no effect on the menu bar what so ever."

    "I live in a very busy city that is very noisy at times. I downloaded Noizio in an effort to drown-out the annoying background noise I deal with every day. It works wonderfully to drown out the noise and let me get my work and studies done. I love the ambient sounds it has, especially the sea waves. I can easily access it from my Mac menu and use the app whenever I need it. I highly recommend it!"

    "Receiving push notification on my mac that my iphone is running low on juice was never a problem so when IBetterCharge came out I was reluctant to give it a try, but I did and I have to conclude that I was absolutely right. This Mac app is useless. I do not, nor should anyone, every need their computer to tell them when their phone is dying."
