Suggestion: "Apps Compatible with Hook" in menu

#1

There’s a nice web page explaining what apps are compatible with Hook. But I think we could benefit if that list was available in Hook itself, in an in-your-face manner. I think trial users and new users would benefit from that info from the get go without having to muck around in a website to discover it.

So, here’s a suggestion:

we’ve been trying to contain info messages in the status bar. How about putting a related message there?

The status bar message is context sensitive, as I’m sure you’ve noticed.

We’ve been discussing internally how to better deal with a case related to what you’re suggesting, which is when the current app is known not yet to be supported. I’ll write a bit more about that soon.

#3

Also, the current status bar only has one line. That’s based on Finder’s status bar.
How would you feel about the status bar having more than one line in cases where a more informative message requires it. (Otherwise, it would remain as is.) I think we should probably cap it at two lines.

#4

My picture was misleading. I intended it to suggest “add a command under ‘About’ that opens info about compatible apps”.

Not on the “status bar”.

Sorry.
