Customizable drawer to store files.

Overview

Macabinet provides convenient place to put files. It is a theme-able, highly customizable drawer where you can store whatever files you like... and it slides out of your way when not in use. Uses for Macabinet include:
  • Store your downloaded files in Macabinet.
  • Keep your desktop free from "file clutter".
  • Store your commonly used documents in one convenient (and out of the way) location.
  • Store files you just don't have any other place for but want to keep.

What's new in Macabinet

Version 1.8.3:
  • Fixed some drawing problems when running under OS X 10.4.3.
  • Fixed a problem when running from a read only volume.
  • Updated registration information.

Very groovy. And the author seems very responsive. My only wish is that I could change the side of the screen it appears on, luckily the author says that will be in the next version.

still a very useful app after 3 years! could definitely use some work though! the multiple cabinets is a bit sketchy, but the fact it stores actual files in a nice accessable way and not just aliases is what i like.

well, don't bother buying this software. or any other radical breeze software. the author has decided to abandon the mac platform and switch to linux. unfortunate, as they made decent software. but don't waste your money, since they probably won't update anymore.

Macabinet started to drive me nuts with its hit and miss of opening folder and other quirks. Although a registered user I switched to FruitMenu, by Unsanity that has all I need in the way of what Macabinet once provided and more. This Developer is waiting much too long to improve this app. R.I.P.

I wanted to a follow-up to my migrating to FruitMenu. All I can say is WOW! Not only do I have instant access to my folders (I simply made an alias of my existing Macabinet folder), but you can preview a thumbnail of any graphics you have without actually opening the file! I have also put what I need into the contextual menu through FruitMenu. Best $10 bucks I've spent on software in a long while! Another thing, I noticed and do not miss with Macabinet--it's a memory hog. There are far better utilities that use much memory. Don't believe me? Go the Activity Monitor and see just how Macabinet uses compared to other apps.

I am the only one who wants this app to work correctly? You have to repeatedly click on the folders to get them to open; custom folder icons do not show up; it is simply not there yet and I keep waiting for a version that works without the bugs. Too much to ask?

Whoever is first, drop drawers looks terrible. At least Macabinet looks like it is part of the system. If it also has XShelf functionality, then that's two birds with one stone. (although XShelf is great). Wish we has those pop-up drawers back as part of the OS. Big loss there.

I would like to see the following: 1) "New Folder" ability in the open Macabinet window. 2) Alias' versus the actual folders being kept in Macabinet's drawer folder. 3) Background picture ability. I use this app a lot and these features will add to it.

Didn't DropDrawers do this first? And very efficiently? DD is completely customizable, including transparency, pics to uses as backgrounds, uses extremely little cpu and is placable where ever you want it. DD has been my favorite for years.

Actually, if you want to go back to who did this very first, it would be CE Software's Tiles program. The only reason it did not continue was Apple Released AtEase, which copied most of the functionality of Tiles.
