Leopard Update: SkypeMenuX seems to work find under Leopard, but the menu icon never changes to reflect your status. I'll take a look at that shortly.

SkypeMenuX provides a System Extra menu for Skype.

This menu allows you to:

  • View and change your Skype user status
  • Launch or Quit Skype
  • See which of your Skype buddies are online
  • Start a Voice call or Instant Message to one of your online Skype buddies
  • Have Skype and SkypeMenuX launch at startup


I would love to spend more time making cool applications that people like YOU want for your Mac!

If you find SkypeMenuX useful, why don't you consider making a donation that will help me have more time for development?
