Since our last feature on Menu Extras, some great new freeware extras have come out. This week we’ll take a look at some of the better ones.
Although this is still in it’s early development stages, Mail Ticker is a great way to monitor your incoming POP email. This menu extra watches your email account for new mail. When a new message is received, its subject appears with its sender in a marque on the menu bar. Preferences allow you to add multiple accounts and adjust settings.
This is a simple and straight-forward addition to your menu bar. This extra installs as a preference pane. When activated, iAddressX lists the names, email addresses and phone numbers for all the addresses in your address book.
This may not be the most practical of menu extras, but is interesting nonetheless. This menu extra displays the color code for the current “Homeland Security” level.
