This was one of my favourites from the last MacHeist. It is the best app launcher for me as I use it in conjunction with my Logitech mouse. Middle mouse button - Overflow pops up, right there under the mouse.
I've already got version 2.5.5 - don't know if I got an upgrade or if I am using the same license as before. Either way, it is a worthwhile app for everyone to have.
MIssed the heist from last year that gave this as loot. Apart from the feature above are there any advantages to this app over just putting a folder in your dock with alias's to the items you want to access? Seems a bit like overkill having an app constantly running to do this.
Looks nice but seems a little pointless to me.
You can categorize to fit your workflow.
For instance, if you are going to be working on a magazine using Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign... you could have those 3 items, along with any other handy graphics tools, categorized for quick access. I don't know about you guys, but rarely do I open a 40MB graphic in Photoshop, have a large vector file open and try to work in InDesign all at once. Adobe products are too memory hungry and they get sluggish even on the best machines.
One category that I use quite frequently is "Internet, which houses all my internet-based applications. Things like the few different browsers I have installed, internet telephone apps, ftp apps, BT apps, news reader, and IM apps. Those items, individually, are in subfolders of Applications or in Utilities or whatever. With Overflow, I open Overflow from the dock, select Internet and I'm ready for hours of straight up internet stuff. No hunting, digging, scrolling, menu surfing... nothing... just click, click, boom.
But that's just me, I like organization and I'm pretty OCD about it. It's a curse. But my machine stays nice and neat... for what that's worth. LOL
