QuickPick

Version: 2.1.3 || Release Date: 2013-12-30 || License: Commercial with demo ($10) App Owner: sethwillits

QuickPick is an app and document launcher designed to feel as if it's part of Mac OS X itself. Your files will only ever be a mouse click, flick, or key press away.

Why You Need a Launcher
The Dock in Mac OS X is a handy place to put the applications and documents you use constantly every day; Just one click and you're ready to go. But what if you have a lot of them, too many for the Dock? What about the apps and documents you don't use quite as frequently, but still want nearby? Navigating through Finder can take far too many clicks. Spotlight can be as helpful as a snail delivering rush order packages. So what do you do?

Why You Need QuickPick
QuickPick keeps any number of applications just a mouse flick (or keyboard shortcut) away. When you activate QuickPick, all of the windows on your system will zoom off into the distance, and the documents and apps you want close by will fly right into view. It's like having a fourth dimension just for your files.

QuickPick displays files, folders, and application as clickable icons which can be arranged in any way you want by simply dragging them around, similar to the Desktop in Finder. To launch an application or open a document from inside of QuickPick, just click on it. You can also select and launch items with the keyboard.

Launchpad in Lion is quite different and far more limited. You have very little control over anything in Launchpad. It really is a terrible solution for anyone with more than a dozen applications. I'm sure by now you've discovered that.

That's okay. I'll wait for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has this all built in.

Looks nice, but there is no longer any demo available since it is Mac App Store only. Sad...
