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.

@effk4y not exactly what you're looking for (ie: not keyboard only), but when you start moving a window with the mouse and then change to another space via the keyboard shortcut (eg: option-4), the window comes with.
This is the fastest way I know.

I don't understand why hyperspaces and these other apps load every desktop background image into memory all at once. Why do you need to do that? Can't you just save which picture belongs to which space, and change the desktop background via the built-in system preferences process? It might not give you all the cool transitions and such, but it would be way more memory efficient.

The funny thing is I see there is an advanced option which seems to do just that, but yet hyperspaces is still hogging memory. Why?

I like the idea of having separate wallpapers for each space, and this app does it quite well. However... I've been looking all over for an app / script that enables me to move the currently active window to any given space. Lets say I want to move Firefox from Space1 to Space4. This could be accomplished by pressing Ctrl-Cmd-4, for instance.

This is a common feature in all the VDM's I've tried on Linux (even one I tried for Windows 7). I was kinda hoping to see this feature in an app built on top of Spaces.

Why hasn't this functionality been implemented? It would be sooo useful!

I run my iMac 24 with another monitor at his side. I wish I could change spaces individually for each screen... I can find any app that does that.

Can someone explain to me what's the point of this app? I see the description. I've read the website. But… huh? I feel like I'm totally missing the point of what's so useful about Hyperspaces.

Hi echo6ix, I found a way to reduce the memory usage: in the Get Info pannel, check the "run in 32-bit" mode, and the memory usage is greatly reduced. Hyperspaces runs in 64bit mode by default.

Is there a way to reduce the memory usage of Hyperspaces?
It uses about 100-150mb of ram to run even idling.

Its an excellent alternative to Spaces.

I'm looking at the old VirtueDesktop transitions as a feature for Hyperspaces 1.1. No promises, but things are looking positive in my early tests.

@jamesrg , look at VirtueDesktops if you're looking to change transition effects.
