Dear dev,
some months ago you promised to put a Snow Leopard compatible older version of HS(not to be updated but working). Any news?

Tried downloading (11/2/13), both from MacUpdate and from developer site. Got message when I tried opening it, "File is damaged and should be thrown into Trash."

Sorry, this should have been filed under Troubleshooting, not Review; please ignore the low rating. I wish MacUpdate would permit me to edit reviews or remove them.

Richard, I downloaded it this morning (Saturday 2 November 2013), and the ZIP archive expanded without error. Are you getting this error message when you try to unarchive? Or when you try to run the application?

If it's the latter, try contacting the dev about the problem at:

It's when I try to run the app. Thanks, Jess; I've taken your suggestion and emailed the developer.

I use HyperDock and find this even more useful as I am a App Switcher guy over a dock guy. I love this, the switching, previews, and closing/minimizing apps. Cant wait til this matures as I foresee this as an everyday utility for me. Im impressed.

@dev, Would like to get a roadmap or your thoughts on this apps future if you do not mind. Obviously HyperDock is your breadwinner but HyperSwitch seems to be a side project.

Posting this here because I think everyone who uses this app would like to know if they can count on it down the road before it's a major part of their workflow and if it is already, and it is for lots, we can start shifting our attention to alternatives if need be to not be caught off guard when an OS update breaks usability or something of the sort.

Thanks, look forward to hearing back and even the opinion of other users. Am I the only one who is curious to know where this app is headed?

Great find! CMD+Tab often left apps like finder out. Now with hyper switch installed it works properly.
FEATURE REQUEST: please provide an option to leave certain apps out of view. I don't want to cycle through Spamsieve, for instance.

I'm looking for a functioning coverflow switcher like the "shift switcher" in Compiz, but haven't found one yet. In the meantime, this one does its job very well. And, at least while it's in beta, the price is right.

This app is extremely promising. I just hope development keeps up, if it does I am definitely buying a license as this is one useful and well thought out app. Between this and alfred, I'll never have to use the mouse again!

Finally, a app switcher that works as I expected. Coming from Windows to a mac developer environment I'm switching all the time. I didn't want heaps of options, layout managers or a vertical list of apps I needed a familiar, two fingered swapper that just works... and this does. The few options it does offer allow for personalised taste in how and what your cmd tab experience offers. Great job!

Couple of problems. When I select "new window" it creates two new documents. Also. it doesn't bring these new document windows to the front. The "all windows" switcher seems to pick up some faceless background apps that don't have any windows.

Hi Revco,

Do you remember which app you selected "new window" for and the names of the background apps?

Best,
Christian

Adobe Illustrator gave me two new docs. Acrobat gave me the "Open Document" dialog. Some apps, like HyperSwitch, have a "new window" option even though it's not applicable.

The background app thing was weird. One of the apps was called "send registration" but when it was selected it opened the Microsoft Entourage maintenance dialog.

For me it's a very useful app for navigate in active windows, and it's perfect in combination with hyperdock. I attend the final release.
