It eats an absurd amount of screen space. And what's with the huge file size anyway?

I looked around inside the app package, the Help file is a 1.2MB RTF file (because of the uncompressed screenshots in it), rip that out an the app is only like 150K

Clean user interfaces and small download size = good software

Guess they didn't teach that in programming 101.

Seems like the footprint is rather larger than it needs to be. I haven't tried this app, but I do know that Spotlight does this, too. For example, "ip" will pull up all files with "ip" sure, but once you've then selected iPhoto, the next time that'll be at the top of the list.

I'm not averse to app retreads. gotta keep the leaders on their toes, so Yet Another Typing Launcher isn't an inherent evil to me. What is an inherent evil to me is a launcher that only launches apps, and eats up more screen space than dashboard widget. Try again.
