Overflow overview

Overflow is an application designed to quickly launch applications, open documents, or access folders while reducing the number of items needed in your Dock. Anything you want can be added to the Overflow interface, making it accessible through a few simple mouse clicks or keystrokes. The interface is resizable, and fully customizable. Create separate categories for your applications, work files, games, or anything else you want to be able to access quickly. After using Overflow, we think you'll find it just as indispensable as we do.

I've been a long time user of Overflow (since its inception), but this latest version doesn't work (won't even launch) with macOS Catalina 10.15.7

The app has a bad beach-balling/stalling issue when you just want to display the names of items, which means you have to recognise apps by the icons alone. Despite being notified of this the developer ignores requests for this to be fixed. I'd call this "flippantware".

Okay, I loved Drag Thing, who didn't. I didn't like Workflow initially. But after a few months of using it I can now say it is an adeguete Drag Thing replacement. It grows on you. Better than others I have tried I think and 3.1 is 64 bit. Yeah , it does not have Drag Things slide out drawer or the version of the apps listed on the icon box etc., etc. but it is still worth looking at. For now I am sticking with Workflow and I expect it will keep getting better anyway. I say go ahead and try it.

Version 3.1 did add some customization options, but my biggest complaint remains. Regardless of the size of the window, I can't eliminate the empty space under the apps I have in Overflow. Very annoying. Went back to version 2.5.9.

Overflow version 3.1 is much improved now – but it still needs a lot of RAM, still have some short lags when switching categories and moving apps to other cells still doesn't seem to be possible (which was no issue in 2.x versions).

Does what it says on the tin, but it doesn't act like DragThing, which is what I'm looking to replace. Overflow's docks aren't persistent—they disappear when you are not using them. Unlike DragThing, which stays visible until you choose to hide it, Overflow disappears. So opening any file becomes a two-step process, at least, because first you have to invoke Overflow. With DragThing, if you leave your docks visible, opening a file from them is one-click operation. Overflow may wind up being the closest replacement for DragThing, but for now I'll keep looking and use DragThing until an OS upgrade really breaks it.

This used to be one of my favorite apps years ago. I'm glad to know it's still alive and well. I wish there was a way to change the icon size. Very pleased, otherwise.

The program Overflow 3 consume too much memory: 573 MB. There is a rather long delay during the first choice of any program collection. Then the response is quick.

can this software deal with thousands of files, or is it more a home-user few dozen type of app?

At last the old favourite is back the only feature I think could be added is to enable a smaller icon size as an alternative otherwise great app on the latest OS. If the icons could be resizable would be 5 stars

I'm happy to see further development of Overflow (v3) and bought it immediately.. While I like the new clean design I'm missing some features of v2.x which user "Jmkmmrr" already described here earlier.

I loved Overflow 2, but after purchasing version 3 I am not such a big fan. Too many missing features in the new version; change the window color, change the window size, eliminate unused cells. All of these missing items forced me back to version 2.5.9. Sorry, but I'll keep an eye out for updates that may make version 3 more usable for me.

Well since i did not upgrade to 10.13 yet and since this new release doesn't seem to be even equivalent to the old one.. well if nothing new i'll stay happy with the old one and lucky enough to not be required to spend more money into a pretty useless update..

Too bad for the 64bit guess its the only thing im gonna miss

I've been using version 2 for years and have really incorporated it into my workflow. Version 3 seems to be missing a couple of features that are important to me: the option to show the icon in the Dock and the ability to customize the icon and text sizes. I've emailed the developer asking if these features will be added back in a future update. If they are ever added back, I'll revise my rating.

Is there a path to upgrade to version 3.0 because the old serial number doesn't function with the new version. Thanks.
