Mac OS Productivity
Amelita is a menu bar app consisting of many utilities whose features are listed below. The features of this app are mostly a consolidation of the features in our various contextual menus wriiten for earlier versions of Mac OS, but no longer supported on Mac OS X 10.6 and above. And some features are borrowed from our other apps.
Visit our website for other information and a demo.
Since the functionality of each contextual menu resided in a menu itself, usually the Finder's contextual menu, it is a natural evolution of those products to be combined into one menu bar app for current versions of Mac OS.
Note that features are contextual, and will display only if they are applicable. For example, "Copy Image or Movie Poster" will only display if the Finder selection contains at least one image or movie file. "Set Icons From Clipboard" will display only if the clipboard has an image on it. And "Add Senders to Address Book" will display when the frontmost app is Mail and it has a message selection.
