Please add a 'Torrent' menu bar item

Recommended Posts

Basically make a 'Torrent' item in the menu bar that contains everything from the contextual menu for torrents.

This is Mac UI design 101: From the Human Interface Guidelines (http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/AppleHIGuidelines/UEGuidelines/UEGuidelines.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40002720-TPXREF101

Make app commands available in menus. The menu bar is the first place people tend to look for commands, especially when they’re new to an app. It’s a good idea to list all important commands in the appropriate app menus so that people can find them easily. It can be appropriate to omit infrequently used or power-user commands from your app’s menus (instead making them available in a contextual menu, for example), but you should be wary of doing this too often. Even experienced users can fail to find commands that are essentially hidden in this way. To learn more about providing menus in your app, see “UI Element Guidelines: Menus.”

This would also make it easy to have and see the keyboard shortcuts for the different commands.
