Disclaimer: This is my app, not sure about the rules on promotional threads on InsanelyMac. I don't normally post threads about my own stuff, but I thought this would be pretty useful to the Hackintosh community. InsanelyMac & TonyMacx86 have helped me so much.
So I went from W7 (which had a multitude of great apps for dealing with more than one monitor like Ultramon) to an OS X Lion Hackintosh, which I loved infinitely more but apparently didn't work too well out of the box with a multiple monitor setup.
A bit about my setup for anyone who cares:
Mobo: ASUS P6T
CPU: i7 920
GPU: GTX 470 SLI (ugh, huge headache not knowing how to do EFI strings)
RAM: 6GB OCZ Gold
Monitors: 2x 24" Samsung SyncMasters.
Here's my attempt at dealing with the multiple monitor problem: Multimon. (<- Click to view in App Store)
• Multiple Menu Bars
⁃ Should work for any number of monitors, the max I was able to test up to was 3 though.
(Hackintoshers with 9 monitor setups, please let me know ).
• Advanced Window Management
⁃ You're more productive with another monitor but nobody wants to drag windows left and right.
Easily send a window to any of your monitors via a drop down or a hotkey. Maximize or minimize too!
• Automatic Window Resizing
⁃ A lot of us hackintoshers don't have the luxury of matching dual cinema displays . This'll automatically resize windows that are too large onto smaller monitors.
⁃ Pretty customizable hotkeys for a bunch of the features listed above as well as quickly hiding all menu bars, etc.
So yup, that's it.

Hope you guys find it useful. Look forward to hearing what you guys think.

I would buy it, but i don't have dual monitors. Anyways, this is very helpful as I connected my laptop to a HDMI and there was no menu bar, lol. It was a bit of a pain!

Anyway, I have just one monitor, otherwise I would try it without a doubt, OSX is really lacking some advanced functions.
