Tyke, a minimal notepad app for the MacOS menu bar

If you're one of those people who constantly dips into a text editor to work with snippets of text — notes, lists, quotes, URLs, and so on — you'll love Tyke. A free app by Andre Torrez, it lives in the MacOS menu bar and replaces those barely-used editor windows cluttering desktop and dock. The Susan Kare-esque icon is maybe my favorite thing about it, suggesting a missing feature of Macs going back decades.
