Found My FinderPop Replacement! - Been using a small app called FinderPop for years. The latest versions of Mac OS gradually disabled it. There are workarounds, but they’re kludgey and require Terminal nonsense; so when I saw this, I crossed my fingers and bought it. Works very much like FP. Sits in my Menu Bar and makes it easy to get to files and folders that are buried on my external drive. I keep folders inside folders inside folders in many cases (“Clients" to "Client's Name” to “Project" to “Images," etc.). What often took 5-6 clicks and lots of scrolling now takes two clicks - Click on Shortcut Bar, click on folder name. Saves both time and sanity when I’m accessing the same folders over and over.

Ahh, a Menu Launcher Again - I have been a MacUser since 1985, going through all operating systems and one piece of software I always loved was a customizable menu launcher. It was always the #1 utility I would install when upgrading. I am delighted to have one again. Especially from FIBLAB whose commitment to the Mac has been shown through a number of utilities over time which I have also used (Memory Clean, Disk Utility). My one wish for a future upgrade is to have folders show subfolders and the whole heirachy. A big thank you to FIBLAB. Dr. Rick Brinkman

Saves Travel Time - I have a 27” iMac. It was tiresome traveling the screen to change between applicaions. Now I have a drop down bar at the top and dock at the bottom. Makes accessing or changing applications very easy.

Well done - Shortcut Bar is a quick point-and-shoot from a menu of your files / apps. It’s quick and delivers what it says. Nice job.

Great time saver! - This shortcut tool helps me get to places I use frequently in fewer steps. It also helps when these things are filed in various places, for the sake of file organization, yet I can get to them right away. It is nicely implemented, and has earned a permament place in my command bar. Good work!

Clean, Clean, Clean - Installed this app last week and absolutely love the “clean” desktop. Easy to find ALL of the files/folders that were cluttering my desktop. If you want a great organizational app, this is the one.
