Great Productivity App - Blast Utility does what the developer says. It's tucked out of your way, just click the menubar and you've got all your recent files that you've been working on. Click on the category icons for drilling down to the specific file you want to look at. Put your favorites in the sidebar for quick access. Highly customizable. Gorgeous UI. Great 1st edition for any App.

Annoyed that it’s extinct - But not at all willing to buy Trickster, because system upgrades cause name changes and user fees.

Once a user, now it depends - Hi, I bought this years ago and want to start using it again, but I can’t with the new OS X, as the app description explained. Instead of buying a whole new app (which performs the same functions for my purposes) could you extend the Trickster App as a complementary one to users of this Blast Utility App? That would be much appreciated. This was one of the first apps I tried and liked.
