Xara Menu Maker Editor's Review

There was a time when web page design used to be all about programming skills and several hours of coding, testing and debugging were required for a beautifully designed web site. However, with tremendous progress in web design arena, these have become thing of the past. There are standalone apps that help you design aesthetic website with ease. You can create captivating website replete with animation and interactivity with such apps. In fact, you can also find apps that let you design specific sections and parts of websites. One such example is Xara menu Maker. The company makes a number of apps for graphic and web design as it is.

The app has a frugal downed size and will not guzzle much resources post installation. It runs on Windows XP and subsequent versions. The installation is standard and gets over in a jiffy. The pricing is standard for its category.

As evident from the name, you will find the app useful for making dazzling menus and buttons for your website and pages. There are plenty of templates offered with the app and you can also customize them. You can customize aspects like font, size, number and text. It is possible to adjust mouse over separately for individual elements. You can leave menu background blank or use your own backgrounds.

Once you are done with selection and customization of design elements the menu is displayed as it would be in end user’s browser. You can choose to control width, manually or by specifying width for each element. When you save the menu, there is the option to pick from PNG, JPG and GIF for graphic files. Menu Maker creates a bunch of graphics, HTML file and required JavaScript to control the menu.

You can also create submenus and specify link details using the app. The app offers support for major third party browsers like opera, Safari etc. The menus are compressed so that the web page size is not gargantuan. Overall, the app performs fine and there is no issue with stability. However, you can find similar apps and frameworks that can get same task done for you.

Positive Points:
 -  Wide OS support, intuitive app.
 -  Plenty of templates and customization options.
 -  Optimization for images.
 -  Wide browser support.

Negative Points:
 -  No outstanding feature.

Conclusion:
Xara menu maker is capable app for web page menu and button creation. It offers a user friendly interface and plenty of templates to make stunning and interactive menu and buttons for websites. You can use the app without being a coding expert. While there is nothing much to dislike about its features and performance, you can also find similar apps and frameworks that get the same work done.

Rating: 3/5
