App Switcher is an application switcher for Mac OS X similar to Windows' task switcher, or Proteron's LiteSwitch for Mac OS 9. If you're not familiar with how it works, you press a key combination (defaults to option-tab) which brings up a window with all of your open programs in it. It stays up while you hold down option, and each press of tab advances to the next program. When you release option, the program you selected comes forward. This is a lot like the Dock's command-tab feature. The key difference is that App Switcher orders your programs front-to-back, so that a single press of option-tab always gets you to the program you were more...


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Great 0.x version app. Does just what it says. Simple and easy to use, and it's free!

Installed this after ongoing trouble with Keyboard Maestro running on Panther. Everything works fine for me except the "esc" key, but App Switcher also accepts the "`" key to perform the same function, so it's not a problem.

A few ideas to consider for future releases:

Allow the 'h' key to be reassigned to a key close to the activation keys, to allow fast and easy one handed operation.

Allow customisation of the list display for a vertical stack of program icons/names.

An option to always hide the non active applications plus a key combo to overide this might be nice - it could even use control+tab for regular operation and option+tab for "always hide" operation (or vice-versa).

Good work, and thanks.

PS Doh! the key names got stripped out of my first comments so I've re-posted this.
