Hyperspaces

Version: 1.1.1 || Release Date: 2011-04-22 || License: Shareware ($12.95) Developer: Tony Arnold | App Owner: tonyarnold

Hyperspaces brings color & context to Apple’s Spaces.

Hyperspaces works with Apple’s Spaces to let you customize each Space so that it is recognisably different from the others. It does this through a set of great visual decorations, including desktop pictures, brilliant colours and text labels. Hyperspaces also makes navigating your newly beautified spaces a breeze with easy access from the Dock or menubar, and a stunning visual space switcher.

I use Spacesuit which seems to do everything this does but free, and with Growl alerts. http://osx.iusethis.com/app/spacesuit

Only had 2 spaces activated.
You know what would be cool? If you could change the transition effect.

@jamesrg I'm fairly confident there's no memory leak. Core Animation does use a lot of memory to cache the desktop images though. How many spaces do you have set-up?

Looks like it may have a memory leak. Installed and my mem went from 850mb to 1500 then kept climbing. Uninstalled it. Great idea though.

@lisnake in what way is it buggy? I'd love to be able to fix the problems you're having - but I need to know more about them first.

buggy as hell

I've been waiting for something like that since the introduction of Spaces, being used to such luxury under Linux/KDE. Looks good so far. What I still miss is to be able to assign individual icons to each space.

Sounds very interesting.

@GVCarroll, not true... You can customize the first few (website says 2, app says 3) spaces with an unregistered version.

Unfortunately, the app seems horribly unstable right now, so you might not be able to test the customization features anyway... But it's because the app tends to crash every time you do anything, and not because you're locked out from not having registered...

It does look promising, however, for power-users of Spaces. Hopefully they make it stable...
