Some of the things Trickster can do:
*****************************************
- Drag and drop files from Trickster to Finder or any other application like you'd do from Finder.
- Open files and applications from Trickster, preview them or reveal in Finder.
- Preset filters to only display images, audio files, videos, documents, applications, folders and specific locations.
- Create your custom filters based on location, file types, Finder tags (on OS X 10.9) or string matching.
- Track only relevant files and ignore all the rest.
- Favorites "sticky" bar gives you fast access to your most frequently used files, folders, and applications. Drop files on a 'favorite' folder to move it there or drop on a 'favorite' application to open it with that particular app.
- Add files to any notebook on Evernote

- Retina ready

Trickster is 100% keyboard-friendly. For ultimate productivity and speed, you can use it entirely without a ​mouse or combine mouse with keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys.

Incredibly useful, nicely designed - I am quite picky about apps that go in my menubar, and Trickster has earned a spot. I frequently use "Open Recent..." to access up files I am using a lot. Trickster will save me time. The ability to access recent folders and media files is a bonus. The design is nice. I'm not sure if I will use Favorites, but you can hide that drawer. The simple Help is perfect.

Unorganized Guy’s Best Friend - I tend to save things in places that I don’t quite remembe where it was. And even when I do know where it is, it take many clicks to get to that folder. Trickster has made my life much easier as I know to go here right away. Being able to omit certain folders makes it better than the “all my files” view in the OS finder. Highly recommend.
