Firemonkey Windows System Tray / OSX Menu Bar

I need a FMX component to run my app in the system tray on Windows and in the menu bar on OSX. I know about Apesuite but it isn't available for download and it looks like it is for XE2 only. I need it to work in XE4, XE5, and XE6.

I would like for it to allow me to use the X title bar button in Windows to minimize to tray and the same for OSX. In windows I don't want it to show on the taskbar when it is minimized to tray. On Mac I don't want it to show in the dock when minimized.

I can do this in VCL Windows apps with CoolTrayIcon and some code in OnCloseQuery.

Also, I know how to make my program run at startup using the registry but how is the same accomplished in OSX?

Thanks,
Brent

Put your VCL components in a VCL form within your Firemonkey project.
