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.

Every so often an app or utility comes along that really streamlines my workflow, or just makes using my Mac so much more enjoyable and useful. Hyperspaces is one of those utilities (for the latter). While I've always been a Spaces user since Apple implemented it, it wasn't nearly as easy or "fun" to use as it is with Hyperspaces. After using this for just one day, I knew I had to have it and am really loving it. I can now have a space with a neutral grey background for doing my photo work with PS or Aperture, a green space for when I'm doing books, etc. and it just makes using Spaces visually much more logical and useful. Makes you wonder why somebody (or Apple themselves) didn't come up with this slick capability.

I was pleased to find that MU is including this in their current Promo bundle, and while I already own a number of the apps in the bundle, I went ahead and bought it mostly for Hyperspaces and a couple other utilities I'm enjoying like WindowFlow.

I realize not everyone will like this, or even be a Spaces user, but for those who do, this really polishes and puts Spaces on steroids. Well worth a try. Personally, I absolutely love it and already have created more Spaces, above my previous 4, to use since it's so much more logical with the help of this little utility. Great work guys. Thanks!
