Fresh

Version: 1.2.3 || Release Date: 2010-05-31 || License: Commercial with demo ($9) Developer: Ironic Software, Ltd. | App Owner: factoryjoe

Solves the 'where did I save that file' problem.

Fresh was born on that sinking feeling we have whenever we head into the Finder to 'Find' that file that we are working on, just downloaded, or like to keep handy. Fresh is designed to hide itself when you are not using it - keeping your onscreen clutter of windows more managable.

I just love this application and I think I'm using it about 10 times an hour, each and every day.

First and foremost, I love that it monitors the filesystem for added or changed files, which instantly lets me find that file which was saved in some obscure place on my harddrive.

Secondly, its "Cooler" facility provides a great shortcut to common or temporarily used project folders and files.

Version 1.2.1 crahses all the time

Very cool piece of software. It takes my favorite feature of Path Finder (an app I tried the demo of, but did not find enough to like to warrant the $40 price tag), the "Drop Stack", and builds a whole application around it. You could duplicate the "Fresh Files" panel with a smart folder, but Fresh's interface and hotkey launching are worth the modest price.

I love that Fresh's tagging feature now integrates [seamlessly] with Leap (which is an excellent application that I use constantly).

Fresh took a while to really win me over. But it has now done so, and I can see it saving me a lot of time. I see the 'cooler' reducing the friction that multitasking creates, while also keeping me more focused.

I have nothing but love for Fresh. I realize that it isn't for everyone, but for those of us who have put up with years of apps that present everything as contexts, focuses and the GTD-method, it is refreshing--aha, a pun--to work with an application that suits my un-GTD brain.

@pandamonia and all the others who are mad about the fact that it has to be in the dock: Use Dock Dodger. Close Fresh -> Start Dock Dodger -> Move Fresh-App on Dock Dodger -> Start Fresh -> Be Happy running Fresh as Background-Application! If you need the Preferences (because in this way you won't get the Menubar ->

@ebrad
OS X has built in file tagging too. I'm sorry... I just can't understand how this is any different than the built in features in the Finder. I tried using the app for a few days and I can't see a difference.

This is an awesome app I use everyday a lot!!
I got it from macheist.... I do have Leap and Yep but I love this app for its simplicity!

It took me a week to finally "get" this program. Now I use it more and more each day. So nice.

How is this better than having a Download folder stack?
