Moment Simplifies Posting Photos And Status Updates To Facebook

Mac: Moment lives in your Mac's menu bar and provides a stupidly simple method of checking Facebook status updates and posting your own. It's also one of the best ways we've seen to upload your photos.

When you click Moment in your menu bar, you get notifications from Facebook. Choosing one takes you to its page so you can reply, like or share it. You can also post your own updates quickly from the app.

While convenient, this doesn't add anything we haven't seen before. How Moment handles photo uploads, however, sets it apart. You can add a photo to any status update easily by dragging it to the menu bar. If you drag several photos, however, you get album creation tools. I've used a lot of Facebook photo-uploading apps, and many of them failed to operate as designed or provided few options. Many uploaded albums I couldn't even edit afterwards. Moment, on the other hand, handles it all without taking up space on your desktop.

If you want a quick way to interact with Facebook and only visit the site when necessary, Moment will get the job done. Although $4.49 is a bit pricey for a menubar app, alternatives just don't work as well. Hopefully, we'll see a price reduction in the future.
