Conjure is a sketchbook. It makes mind maps. You can make notes on it. Save links to important things, from specific emails to websites. It's a file organizer. It's a launcher. It's a photo manipulator. It can even use iChat to help you broadcast and collaborate your thoughts with other people. And it lives right on your desktop, so it's always there when you need it. On top of all that, you can have an unlimited number of desktops, and flip between them like cards in a deck.

Conjure lets you create and navigate between an unlimited number of desktops. You can even switch desktops while you're in another application. more...

What's New

Version 4.5.3:
  • Added Emergency Bunny Mode! When your MacBook power level drops under 5%, the Conjure icon turns red. Perfect for people like me who ignore the 10% power remaining warning because 10% is a lot of power to still have left.

Requirements

  • OS X 10.6 or later

To the developer: A thousand thanks for providing a great screen shot of your app. It is not only large and readable, it gives a great overview of what Conjure does. I'm seriously considering a purchase.

I'm in love! For me as a designer and artist one of the most innovative, creative and easy-going notebooks, sketchbook, ideas catcher and folder. Meanwhile I start every new project with Conjure. The bigger the screen the better... Thank you for the quick and good support in the beginning.

Does anyone know the license restrictions? I can't seem to find anything about it on the website. I just want to know if I can use it on my laptop and my desktop with one license. Tried to email the developer via a link on the website, but it was returned undeliverable.

My dot mac email address is dead, thanks to a hilarious joke by one of my clients. I'm working on getting that fixed, now.

I realize I should put this on the site, so I'll do that soon. But I let Conjure users put a copy on any of their own computers, and the computers of any immediate family members, with no restrictions. So far, this has not led to rampant piracy, as people are generally good. Especially when they're not being screwed over by insane license restrictions.

So yeah, you can absolutely put a copy on your laptop and desktop, and use the same license for both.

Discerning app shoppers will surely want to have a look at the upcoming Conjure Pro, about which information is available on the developer's website. Apparently it does everything for the cost of everything.

Hi Lumac52!
It'll be out very soon. Within a week. The Pro version will cost around $50. A Basic version (not sure about the name) will still cost around $25.

And all of the current users get a free upgrade to Pro.

I have new videos of using it with a ModBook and a Tablet on the way, which will show off some of the new features (most work with mice as well, obviously).

Conjure's Ninja Bunny beta team is now hovering around 20 people, and this version should be free of any major issues. If you run into anything, please don't hesitate to let me know!

This software looks a nice program, but I have a problem and several questions about functionality. First, I cannot change the project neither with the Bunny Menu nor Desktop Menu. I don't know the reason of this strange behaviour. The Desktop Overview only shows the current Desktop, but not the others in the same or in other "Space". In fact, the Navigation between Desktops doesn't work at all. Any help?. Another thing a little confusing is the use of Term "Project" and "Desktop". After playing a little, they seem to be the same Right?. The features of other terms are not well explain like the "focus" option or the "sink" option in the Conjure Menu. I've seen several screencasts but they don't seem to explain these options, and the Help in the program is not searchable at all. A missing feature is the "action items" like checkbox or date, aroww , etc in the text. I think that's my first view of this software, nice, but needs a lot of work & improvement (like most of them, of course!)

Hi,

Thanks for writing!

The Spaces integration is not where I'd like it yet, but I wanted to get this next version out because it contains a few bugs that people might be experiencing, and it includes some ModBook stuff the Modbook users have been waiting on. But yeah, the Spaces integration could use some help.

But in the next big version bump (4.2), I'll address the distinction between projects and desktops. You can have multiple projects, and each one can contain multiple desktops. The simple reason is that some people really like keeping their Conjure database on DropBox, or backing it up via SVN, and they'd asked for something similar to a document architecture, so that this was easier.

If multiple projects are open, you can toggle between them with command+~.

In 4.2 I'll blur that line a bit more, and simplify access to them. More on that later, though.

Checkmark lists will be a 4.2 feature, as will improved Spaces capability.

Thanks!

I download it today and happy with it. Here is my suggestion about Conjure 4.1.1.

• Problem with xGestures
After loading Conjure, I cannot see my xGestures's mouse path in the front window while I invoke gesture feature. But xGestures still works fine in the background. Is there any way to fix it?

• Please let Cmd-i OPEN and CLOSE the inspector window instead of Cmd-w to close it.

Hi,

I just downloaded xGesture. Interesting app. Mouse gestures were a concept I included in the early days of Conjure, and one I still might bring back. (Back in the early days, you clicked and swizzled objects around to make a cluster). This is an interesting app, and one I'll play with in more detail soon. However, it appears to be working fine here. Conjure doesn't do anything too outlandish or hackish to accomplish what it does, and from looking at xGestures in Shark, it's not doing anything too bad either. So I'm not sure how the problem you're seeing is happening. Of note, I'm using a MacBook Pro in this case, and I had problems with xGestures initially catching my cursor movements. Conjure was not running at the time. But it's possible it's some Snow Leopard weirdness going on there. At any rate, if you can provide me with more info though, I'd be happy to track it down.

Regarding the Command+i to open and close the info panel, that's a good idea, and I've added it to the current beta. Once the last of the known bugs is fixed, and the beta team returns no new bugs, I'll post another update.

Thanks!

Hi, Chilton

Thanks for reminding. I tried re-enable xGesture again after I restart my OS X 10.6.1. The gesture path back again and Conjure works fine together.

There is another situation I met yesterday. I enabled the Screen Corners and Spaces features on my MBP 2.53Hz early-2008. If I open two Conjure projects at the same time. While I switch spaces via Screen Corners, Conjure's switching Desktop shortcut, Cmd-Number, doesn't work. I have to press Cmd-0 to bring desktop overview first. I notice there are some users experienced this problem from your Forum. Hope this info helps. Thanks for developing Conjure.

Hi EEPTMAN,

That particular bug (the desktop shortcuts disappear) was fixed last night, and our beta testers are banging away on it right now. As soon as I hear back as to the status of the bugs in that one, I'll release an update.

FWIW, I believe in 4.1.1 that can also be circumvented by either forcing it to save (command+s), or by switching to a different desktop.

Thanks!

By the way, how can I perform rotation images in Conjure? I tried the way from Conjure's Help: Shift-rotate

But it doesn't work for me. While I am holding the Shift key, and rotating the image w/ two fingers on Conjure Desktop. Only the image bound spins quickly. It doesn't rotate at all.

Hi,

This feature didn't work to my satisfaction, so I removed it. It'll be back in the next update as well. In Conjure 3, there was a bug in CoreAnimation that would throw off the boundaries for the object when it was rotated, so there was no way to click on it to 'unrotate' it.

For v4.0, I had the old code in there for rotation, but that slowed down everything else, because it was horribly inefficient.

For 4.1, I removed the rotation code, when I added aspect ratio scaling, because the two conflicted, and I wasn't sure which my users wanted.

I'm looking into exactly what behavior would be expected in this case, and I think iWeb does a good job of how I would expect it to work, so I'll probably be adding that to the beta tonight as well. If it checks out, the next update will have it.

I purchased a license when it was still version 3, and even the developer admitted it was not where it was intended to be, but I knew it had great promise. Version 4, and the advent of Snow Leopard has allowed Conjure to catapult its development and I could not be more pleased.

It is easy to see even Apple adopting what Conjure is now doing as the desktop (yes, I know Conjure is not the desktop, but emulates it) has never demonstrated as much potential as it does with Conjure. Please keep up the good work!I

Hi!

This version brings a lot of new features to the table, and fixes a ton of things our users had run into, from actual bugs, to extremely specific tweaks.

But the highlights in this one are the support for customizing multiple Spaces (which to my knowledge has never been done to this extent), support for MobileMe and thumb drives, and the Organizer and Knife tools.

Conjure's features are largely community driven. If you send in a feature request, there's a good chance it will at least be seriously considered. So don't hesitate to ask!

For example, the Organizer came out of a discussion on the ConjureBunny forums. As far as I know, this is the first time this type of tool has been created. And now that I'm using it, I can't imagine how I prototyped anything without it!
