Email me when discounted: 

appHop is a light-weight wrapper around Spotlight which limits searches to applications only. You start to enter the name of an application and Spotlight searches for it on your computer. When you have entered enough of the application's name to uniquely identify a single application, the app is then automatically launched by appHop.

Quicksilver is a better alternative, since it allows plugins to be added, its faster then spotlight on slower computers, and you can keep spotlight for searching your files..

I think Namely does this job without using Spotlight - that means (at least on my slow iBook) much faster... The application database gets loaded within 10 seconds (500MHz G3) and then you don't wait for anything. Spotlight is kinda slow on these old machines...

Why is this even needed when you can just go into Spotlight Preferences and uncheck everything except Applications or change the listing order? Somehow I just don't seem to understand the value of this item. Sure, you have to check or uncheck a number of items, but to use this tool, you have to download it and install it. It just does not seem to be that reliavant or valuable to me.

Anyone who's looking at this app should also be looking at Quicksilver.

Weighing in at 8.9MB(!), this seems like anything but a "light-weight wrapper".
