Application Wizard

4.1
20 November 2019

Convenient app launcher and quitter.

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 Application Wizard

Version 4.1:
  • The incompatibilities with macOS 10.15 Catalina have been solved.
  • The Open and Special menus now display Access Not Allowed when Application Wizard can't access files on a volume or in a folder. On Catalina, make sure to allow Application Wizard to access files on removable and network volumes and in your Documents, Desktop, and Downloads folder, if you want to browse them.
  • The System Memory submenu has been revised and now displays memory used (app, wired, and compressed memory), cached files, and swap used. In addition to that, it now lists compressed, decompressed, purged, and purgeable pages.
  • A bug that caused Application Wizard to stop responding when trying to trash a file contained in a read-only folder or volume has been fixed. In addition to that, Application Wizard now displays an error message when trying to move a file to a read-only folder or volume.
  • A bug, introduced in version 4.0, that could cause Application Wizard to quit unexpectedly when trying to preview a movie has been fixed.
  • A bug, introduced in version 4.0, that could cause aliases to appear in the Applications panel has been fixed.

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.

Great, Great and Great. Thank-you so much. For a small app it packs a punch! Keep up the good work, and did I say Thanks!

Doesn't seem to be compatible with Default Folder X (on Sierra 10.12.6). One can only use Default Folder X OR Application Wizard, not both at the same time. What a bummer! [Tested with Default Folder X v5.2.3]

Application Wizard is the closest I have found to MaxMenus, my favorite Mac utility of all time (DragThing is on my favorite list too). I still use MaxMenus, now on High Sierra, though development and support stopped long ago. The ability to have customized menus in each of the four corners of a screen was brilliant, especially for power users. But I will move over to Application Wizard. The MaxMenus functionality, especially setting up the menus, has become a real pain. The process does not work as it should due to the lack of support and improvements to keep up with the latest OS changes. Shame really ... With Application Wizard, it would be nice to see the option for multiple "panels," rather than just one, that can be positioned at different points on the screen.

One of those "must have" apps for me. Does more than just launch applications. The gold button is very useful for quickly looking at images and videos. Finding songs in your iTunes library is easy when the song plays if you scroll over it. The memory "info" button is useful too.

Although I use Application Wizard only for Single Application Mode, I find it indispensable. Although there are other pieces of software that provided Single Application Mode, none do it as smoothly, invisibly and without a hitch like Application Wizard. On the few occasions I have contacted the company they responded quickly, in a friendly manner and directly answering my question. I just wrote to inquire about Mavericks compatibility and shortly thereafter received a response that a new compatible version should be released this month, although Single Application Mode works in the current version. This company is what all software companies should be like. Good software, good company and good people.

A very useful application. Good feature set. An alternative to the 'donationware' Finderpop. Maybe a little too expensive as an impulse purchase. Five to ten would seem a much more seductive opening price. My one concern or caveat, is that the 'four buttons' are just brightly coloured aqua buttons. There should be at least a couple of alternative possibilities within the preference pane. The standard for OS menu items are black and flat. This garish and childlike offering, does let the overall feel of the app down terribly. Apart from that, it's well worth a try. To see if it enhances your workflow. Grazie e Arrivederci

Absolute brilliant upgrade. Very slick. Works a treat in OSX 10.68, and I love the new customisable Keyboard Shortcuts... especially for the original reason I got this for "Quit All Apps" that can now have a keyboard Shortcut! Awesome! A+

All the positive comments on this app are very well deserved. Its capabilities are very extensive, far more than just launching and switching apps. For example, its Special menu allows access to customizable folders (and shows previews of and allows you to perform numerous actions on files within), Address Book, system memory information, sleep/restart/shutdown, and more. I don't have time to write a full review, but I will say that, next only to LaunchBar, Application Wizard is the most useful and versatile general utility app I've ever used. Also, this latest update (2.5) is very nice. It contains a lot of new features and improvements for a .1 update. I've seen apps get major version upgrades with less.

Awesome app that definitely deserves it's full price, operating a lot faster now. Thank you for not crippiling the app and please keep us going with updates. I highly recommend anyone looking for this sort of app to check them all and check this last... I don't think you will be switching back going to another. Definitely worth the try. Cheers!
