@antoineplu Say what??? Bartender 2.0 was released on September 28th 2015, and it's at version 2.0.9 right now.

@t55 And if you look closely, you can see that he wrote this 5 months ago. Not sure why ProductHunt is resurfacing this now.

@antoineplu Bartender is definitely such a powerful tool to keep your Mac organized. Can't imagine how would have my menu bar looked like without the bartender! It's a must-have app for any Mac user who wants to keep their Mac organized. Besides, to my knowledge, there is no alternative available for Bartender and it's one on it's kind. — Hats off to the developers for such a great app at such an incredibly low price! Bartender most definitely worth much more than 15 bucks! 👌🏼
@shahinix @antoineplu Incredible low price? I was really excited about this product until I saw the price. Honestly, hiding some icons (however useful) is not worth $15. Even half is too much if you ask me. Not trying to be negative, but I truly believe it's too expensive. Too bad there are no alternatives, I really _do_ like this product!

@neejoh @shahinix I totally agree it's not incredibly low 🙈 but I think it's worth the price regarding the development behind. I'm not paying for hiding icons, I'm paying an app that can give manage my tools and give me the essential when I truly need it without being disturb by dozens of others icons. Managing what you want to see and when feels like it's so obvious once you have it, you can't go back without it. https://cl.ly/0V1e2F3D3Y09

@neejoh also you can give it a try during 14 days if doubt about buying it, worth a try :)
@antoineplu I see how useful it can be, really looks great. But to be blunt "we" don't want to pay for the time you put into development, we pay for the end product and its features. If you made it specifically for a client, that's a different story though, they _might_ agree in front to pay for the development hours you put in. In today's day and age, with bazillions ideas and programmers we slowly dropped the price for apps, 10 years ago I would've paid up no questions asked. For example, I'd rather pay a small price, unlocking features I would actually use (e.g. in-app purchase) like showing icons when they've updated until you dismiss or hiding system icons etc. Just throwing it out there. Again, not trying to be negative or a nag, and I truly hope sales are going so you can make a good living, just not off me ;) -- edit haha, you're the hunter, so I'm directing this at the wrong person. But still, I stand by it.

Protip: My favourite part of Bartender with OS X El Capitan is hiding the menu bar and setting Bartender to hotkey open with Cmd+1. Hide all of your apps into the Bartender bar, and this way you get a full screen to work with but still get access to the menu bar with a simple press!

Read about this when it was featured a few months back. Just went through a great install and setup process. Works great and allows you to tame a previously un-tame-able area of the Mac OS. Great app!
