My Most Used App - It really does extend your dock to have everything organized in categories, and you can rename your categories by double clicking on them. It’s also easy to move them in the order you want. Now I have a manageable dock without sacrificing my selections; well worth the money!

Great app! Though I have just one request... - I love being able to visually organize all my apps. This is better for me than typing my app names with spotlight, or Quicksilver. When I'm in right brain mode, I can't always remember names like "photoshop" I know that's weird, but it's true. This app solves that. The only problem is, that sometimes in right brain mode, I forget my hot key for Overflow too. If you could set the menu icon to work as a toggle, ala twitter/sparrow... I'd be in great shape.

Review by Bangs Family

Fantastic Idea. Almost there - I love this app. I've been waiting for a way to organize all the apps on my Mac. This app is beautiful, functional and useful. It is brand new though, and I have a couple of requests. 1) Allow me to Rename Categories. (OK - So call me indecisive, but sometimes the names of categories evolve as you more the apps around and think of new things they have in common. With this app, you can't rename - you can only start over). 2) Let me leave Overflow open on the desktop. (It disappears when you click on anything else and must be relaunched from the dock. How about having an option to let it remain on the desktop? Behind the active app, of course, but still there.) It is a very welcome "Keeper" just the way it is. It is a huge improvement over the dock alone.

Review by Speedfreak999s

Just needs one or two more tweaks, then it’d be perfect. - I’ve got a lot of apps. I mean A LOT! And I’m all over the place with types of applications. Since I do some web work, I’ve got some applications that are specific to that. I also work with 3D modeling, music, photos, etc, etc, etc… Needless to say, my applications are all over the place, and keeping them organized - or just simply remembering what each does and not forgetting that I even have it... This app is awesome in that respect. You can make as many categories that you want and drop the apps into it (this app creates an alias to the actual application still in your “applications” folder). This is great as it helps speed your workflow. You can even have the same app in two different categories. Here’s where they come up short. 1) I’d like to be able to leave this app open and be able to see it constantly displayed on my desktop. Unless you have “edit” enabled, that won’t happen. If edit is enabled, you can’t use it to open apps with. It shouldn’t be that much of an ask, the Finder can stay opened constantly right? 1.1) If the designers could keep it open but are also concerned about desktop clutter, why not just put it lower on the z axis? Allow other windows to cover it over instead of it always being on top. 1.2) Finally, instead of making it fully opaque, they should allow for some transparency through the application window. The “Fences” app (by Stardock), I think on mac it’s called iFences, is a fantastic example. Like I said, I think it’s a great app, it just needs a bit more refinement. As it is, I really want to like it, but practically speaking it’s just not there yet for it to make it into my normal workflow. You guys are so close, please finish the job.
