Ultimate way to customize your spaces.

Overview

Note: From the developer's site: "Hyperspaces does not run on more recent versions of Mac OS X, and is no longer supported." He has also provided a free serial number: HYSP100-04047-45326-227A2-A07FI-201CR. You can either copy-and-paste it here; or you can download and install Hyperspaces, visit the developer's Web site, and click on the "Free License" button near the top of the page, which will open Hyperspaces and license it.

Hyperspaces is the ultimate way to customize your spaces. Customize each and every space the way you want using colors, desktop pictures, text labels and even the name of each space!

What's new in Hyperspaces

Version 1.1.1:

Changing spaces is faster.

  • You can set the way that your desktop image scales (or tiles) under the 'Images' tab in the 'Your Spaces' preferences.
  • A refined user interface for selecting and editing your spaces under the 'Your Spaces' preferences -- it should be much clearer which space you're editing versus which space you're on.
  • Additional options under 'Your Spaces > Options' to disable the actions performed when clicking and double-​clicking on the desktop when icons are hidden.
  • Bugs that you guys reported have been fixed left, right and center.

Unfortunately for me this does not go far enough. Spaces and the other virtual desktop options (apart from you control desktops), and even the limited enhancement of different backgrounds provided by hyperspaces falls well short of the stock standard work spaces found in linux. "You control desktops" appears to be the only Mac alternative that emulates that provided in linux. I see little point in just changing the just the background. When I move from work space to work space I want a clean desktop or a desktop with documents and files etc relating to the workspace I am in (not just the application). If hyperspaces was able to provide this in the future it would be a godsend. I am sure I am not the only MAC person who dabbles in other OSes, but I am beginning to wonder if others know just how limited Spaces is. If anybody knows of any other utilities out there (other than "You control desktops") that provide a true multiple work space experience, linux style on the MAC please let me know.

Sadly Hyperspaces does not work on Mavericks either. It crashes on launch. Looks like this software is dead and abandoned.

Hyperspaces no longer works on Lion. Apple strikes again. Well at least the developer let everyone know on his web site.

Hyperspaces still needs better control of Labels. I use other desktop applications that "cover" Hyperspaces and I can no longer see the desktop label. There should be a setting that allows you to control the Window level and put the desktop label on top of EVERYTHING. See TunesArt if you need an example. I can set the floating album cover window to be "always on top."

Works for me. Easy to use and doesn't mess up my system. Here's a tip: I'm a visual guy, and I want to see something other than a not-very-meaningful number to indicate what space I'm in. I replaced the default space names in Hyperspaces with "Geometrical Shapes" from Character Viewer, specifically the four "White Square with xx Quadrant" ones. These symbols match the 2x2 grid I use for my four spaces. Now I can see at a glance what space I'm in.

I'm a second user who relies on spaces. I find a Mac without spaces to be confusing. Spaces is key to my workflow. And Hyperspaces makes it even better.

Well I get around a lot, consulting and training. Most users either ignore Spaces or don't even know it exists. Due to the inadequate way Apple implemented it. Hyperspace at least makes it easier to distinguish where you are with labels and colored backgrounds. Still not enough though to overcome the confusion that comes from mentally trying to track what is where and waste time resolving issues of why documents and applications don't necessarily appear where you left them. Until Apple fixes the UI problems of Spaces it is dead in the water for most users. It falls into one of those geekish categories where the user supports the machine and not the other way round. OSX has too much of this already and adding to their woes is the last thing users want.

I was actually being soft on Spaces. Not ONE user I know actually uses it. I've tried it several times, with and without Hyperspaces and it is just too much work.

Aside from allowing the user to have different backgrounds on each desktop, it's not clear to me why one would use this over Expose(?) Moreover, Expose graphically displays the application windows in each space, which is far more important than having different backgrounds in each space.

This app should add a feature were the desktop background can be random in every space. I have the background on my mac randomly switch pictures upon waking . It would be awesome if every space randomly chose a different picture... At least I think that would be cool.
