Application Wizard overview

Application Wizard provides fast access to applications, documents, folders, and disks. It lets you quickly open, quit, and make applications active, run AppleScripts, and reduce screen clutter by turning on single-application mode.

With Application Wizard you can also browse volumes and favorite folders to quickly open enclosed items, eject and mount disks, check memory usage, and to easily access recent documents and contacts. Finally, Application Wizard lets you preview images, music, movies, and documents, and view file properties and metadata.

What’s new in version 4.6

  • The tracking of running applications and background processes as they are launched or terminated, and their features and activation has been fully revised: the code has been modernized and streamlined.
  • On macOS 13 and 14, new items have been added to the Accessibility submenu and Privacy & Security submenu of the System Settings item in the Open menu.
  • The Open With submenu of previews in the Special menu has been revised: the code has been modernized, applications are now grouped by name, and version numbers are displayed in a dimmed color.
  • The creation of default groups has been revised and improved.
  • A bug that caused the Switch to Previous command not to be disabled when the previous application was automatically terminated and you weren’t showing automatically terminated applications has been fixed.
  • A bug that caused the chronology of running applications to be incorrectly updated after an application was launched without being activated has been fixed.
  • A bug that caused smart folders to be incorrectly sorted in the the Special menu when the Finder’s “Keep folders on top in windows when sorting by name” option was selected has been fixed.
  • A bug that could cause Application Wizard 4.5 to ask you to uninstall version 4.4 or earlier even though you had already uninstalled it manually, but without turning Application Wizard off, has been fixed.
  • Some other minor fixes, improvements, and code modernizations have been introduced.

Nice app, but for some reason when I restart my computer the Application Wizard opens every app I have (and I have a lot)... huge pain in the ass! It also does it when I switch the off/on slider to on. What gives? Useless, unless this is addressed. If anyone has an answer I'd love to hear it.

I have been using Application Wizard for only a few days but am already quite impressed. I have tried a few alternatives to the dock provided with MacOS and have found that Application Wizard does the best job of fitting my needs. I like the ability to put the apps I utilize most in folders where I can easily access them. The critical feature for me is the ability to populate those folders with my choice of applications, and in the order I choose. I tend to have "go-to" applications of a given type, but also have others of that type that I only use occasionally. Application Wizard's folders let me list ALL apps of a given type in my order priority or frequency of use, so I don't forget about infrequently used apps. While there are more features of the app I have yet to explore I have already made the purchase.

A terrific little utility which has made updating/upgrading to Catalina a pleasure. Catalina killed my last application launcher, which I'd probably hung on to for too long anyway, but the Application Wizard gave me all sorts of options for accessing and launching apps which I hadn't considered until I installed it. This is another utility that's gone into my 'indispensable list' .... Massive kudos to the developer who seems to have an innate understanding of how users actually work. Without it Catalina imposed so many constraints I was seriously thinking of junking it and going back to Mojave ... with it I'm finally reasonably happy with Catalina.

Brand new v4.0 works great thus far in Mojave 10.14.5 on a MacPro 5.1. Great to see it 64-Bit at last. Well done. Upgraded today.
