QuickPick is an application and document launcher designed to feel as if it's part of Mac OS X itself. Just drag and drop any number of applications or documents into the QuickPick window, and they'll only ever be a mouse click, flick, or key press away. Watch video tour.

QuickPick is a great place to store documents and applications that you use frequently. When it comes to launching, QuickPick replaces the roles of Finder, Spotlight, Stacks, and the Dock with one quick and easy interface, that is fast to use with the keyboard or the mouse. more...

I have this app on my SnowLeopard versions of the OS and now I have it in Mavericks.It runs great and took a lot of maneuvering to get it right because I have a lot of Apps. It runs great and I like it.I am looking forward to further versions for improvements.

Excellent app. Allows me to keep sets of apps. and sets of folders and files etc. as projects I'm working on. I wish it would support QuickLook for previews of files whole in a hierarchical view, similar to say.. FolderGlance or DragThing (which I'm trying to replace hereby.. as it does not fit my style anymore though have loved it for many years).. The browsing of files in folders should IMO be something between these: FinderPop/FolderGlance/DragThing.

PS: Also the "Icon" file (inside folder that have a customized icon) should be hidden (for those folders.

But overall this app is already quite useful, and could be improved to be perfect..

Found v2.2.1 to be really buggy under 10.8.3.

When the app opened the icons would 'jump' down to the left making the page off-center. Then when trying to organise icons by dragging a selection the offset would completely mess up the true selection.

The sliders to adjust icon size, horizontal and vertical spacing are awful - no live feedback as dragging. Again making it really hard to use.

Shame as the hot corner shortcut made it really accessible.

I wanted to like this, but bugs and other glitches made it too awkward and time consuming to set up.

There's an option to rename items, which would be handy for apps with ridiculously long name (I'm looking at you, Lightroom), but every time I tried to change the name, it just reverted to the old name.

The screenshot in the MU listing shows icons arranged symmetrically on the screen, but that can only be achieved by manually setting the icon spacing at exactly the right amount. On my 15" MacBook Pro, I had a big gap down the right side where I wanted to put some more icons, but to do so I had to shrink the icon spacing slightly. Unfortunately, the only way to adjust the spacing is with a clumsy slider that doesn't show the new value until you let go of the slider, so I could never get it right. The app should be able to automatically calculate and set an optimum icon spacing.

While selecting and dragging icons around I accidentally launched a few apps. It would be easier to set up QuickPick if app launching was disabled while editing pages. By this point I gave up. QuickPick may be a useful launcher, but for me it became too annoying to set it up that I gave up. As always, YMMV.

One of those app you'll use every day and improves the mac experience even more.

Label text on my 13" MBP Retina display is fuzzy (which is in significant contrast to the icons, which are very sharp).

Seems like it would sure be nice to have an option where one of the pages could be marked as "all applications" (e.g. a page that automatically has all of the icons that would normally appear on Launchpad) so we can completely forget about Launchpad and/or keeping a separate page that has all the stuff we rarely use, but don't want to lose track of. The lack of this type of functionality has me wondering whether the $10 purchase was worth it.

Oh dear. In this newsest version, if I click on a folder, it doesn't just open the folder. It now gives me a popup with options that include "open in Finder." I don't like that. But I don't see any option anywhere to let me have it automatically open a folder in Finder if I click on it. I hope that build that option back into this.

Never mind. I found the option in the preferences settings. Yay! Great program, by the way.

this is a wonderful app that lets you customize launcher (which feels useless without quickpick)

This is the perfect Launchpad, and the developer support is fantastic.
