You, sir, are the man! Thank you so much for writing this software!

With all due respect, but I'm at all not comfortable with the "SM" shortcut, especially up above my menu bar. the software itself is awesome though, thanks!

You can turn the "SM" menu off by unchecking the "Display "SM" menu icon" in the bottom left of the preferences window.

Documentation and possibly a video are in the works, however you have to remember this is a very new app, and is still in beta.

In the mean time there are small explanations for each function if you click the "?" next to one of them. (In the preferences window).

See the FAQ for info about opening the preferences window.
