QuickPick - A Better Desktop Launcher for Mac OS XQuickPick is an application and file launcher that's lightyears ahead of Launchpad.araelium.com
QuickPick is an application and document launcher designed to feel as if it's part of Mac OS X itself. Just drag and drop any number of applications or documents into the QuickPick window, and they'll only ever be a mouse click, flick, or key press away.
When it comes to launching, QuickPick replaces the roles of Finder, Spotlight, Stacks, and the Dock with one slick interface that provides fast access to documents and applications that you use frequently.
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, and Launchpad is infuriatingly basic. So what do you do?
Why You Need QuickPick?
QuickPick keeps any kind and number of files 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.
Forget having to move items one by one, and not being forced to include applications you don't even want. (ahem, Launchpad.) QuickPick displays files, folders, and application as clickable icons which can be arranged in any way you want by simply dragging them around. If you need even more space, just add more pages. 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.
You can add files into QuickPick at any time by drag and drop.
To remove items select them, and press the Delete key.
