Is there an app that can change the color of the menubar? I saw one that I'm pretty sure wasn't Nocturne.

LeoColorBar (Free)

Allows you to change the color of the menu bar.

MenuShade (Free)

not an app, but you could use obsidian menubar by Max Rudberg. it's an installer that changes menubar's pngs and substitute os x's black menubar icons (as well as some 3rd party ones) with white ones. see more infos here or download it directly from Max's website
