What's New

Version 3.0 beta has been almost completely rewritten for efficiency and performance boost. It also adds support for multiple custom locations. Please note that it is beta version and some localizations are still missing.

This version is not compatible with previous versions. That means you'll have to set up again your preferences, but that also means you can revert to version 2.4.3 easily if you encounter any problem.

Warning: If you encounter problems upgrading from previous versions, first quit HimmelBar then launch the installer.

Changes:

  • Bug fixes.
  • Added the Danish localization.
  • You can now set a custom location from within a standard location.
  • Full path of applications is now displayed as tooltips in the preferences drawer.

It's useful, clean, simple, and efficient. Makes accessing your apps so much easier. Only reason that I gave it a three for stability is because I've only had it for a day or two, so I can't really say much about stability just yet. No problems so far though

I think this is a great idea, but it no longer works in Lion, and does not display all folders in a given directory.

Sorry, but that's nonsense; LaunchBar doesn't use either the desktop or the menubar. It activates IN the menubar with a keystroke, or you can cmd-tab to it in the list of running apps if you like. In other words, it runs just as it always has.

I recommend comparing with the simple and elegant Namely and the powerful Quicksilver, both activated by keystroke shortcuts and both likewise freeware.

The ability to close all open applications makes this little gem a winner.

I would suggest that you check out XMenu also. Similar in purpose and function to this app.

This is badass! Since Dock Extender is no more, I've been looking for another kind of launcher that's simple, clean, and mean. This is it.

Butler is too convoluted and Launchbar is useless as it uses the desktop and not the menu bar anymore.

Kudos to the dev!

Best of all, it's free. Pretty customizable and leaves a small footprint.

Butler can be put on the menubar too... Thou I think butler is slower than HimmelBar, on the other hand Butler have a very nice search function which I miss from HimmelBar
