Indispensable. Especially on a smaller-screen computer - the combination of features in Fresh is excellent. If your work involves grabbing documents from different locations and moving or copying them to another, then Fresh is a great companion.

I can't believe some of the low ratings for this app. I've used it since its inception. I've tried others, but this is the one I stick with. I'm a tagger, and I love the drop zone with tagging and the cooler. I love the cooler itself! In fact, I can't think of anything that I would want to add to this app. There is never a time that I think, "I sure wish I could [fill in the blank] with Fresh." It's always on, and it never, ever crashes.

To give an app a 1/2 star rating because it has some features you DON'T use? @Zx, you surprise me. There must be tons of apps on your computer where you don't use all the features. Is that a reason for a low rating? "Oh, this Photoshop app has waaay too many features. I'll give it 1/2 star."

For me, personally, I don't even notice the Spotlight and Add File areas. No, I don't use them either, but they are unobtrusive and if I want to use them, there they are. It was nice when the version came out allowing us to change the background colors; although, by that point, I decided I liked the bright green and blue, and when I had the option, I changed it right back!

Does anyone know how to remove the "Spotlight" and the "Add file" ....?

Why do you need to get rid of these two tools? One big feature of Lion/Mtn Lion is the full screen app support. With Fresh you don't have to go back to the Finder to find that file.

If you don't use the spotlight search it will simply not get in the way.

Design!!! It's completely out of place (read all the comments reg V.2). Sure, we can use it...But you got to redesign.

Also, this functions would be a nice addition:

1. Drag & Drop (+spring loaded) to the cooler.
2. The ability to add rows

Thanks.

P.S, Version 2 is mostly getting negative reviews.

When you drag an item to Fresh in the Dock (it can run in the Dock or menu bar) it goes into the cooler.

2.0.7 adds the ability to use the mouse or trackpad to scroll the rows of items in both zones.

Ratings matter to developers. Is this rating solely because we have added two interface items? Or is there some other reason why its rated like it is by you?

Personally, I use Fresh all day.

Fresh is great. Really.

Some improvements that I find crucial:

1. Wildcard filtering of files. Right now, I have these pesky, dated, extension-less "Interim-Note Changes YYMMDD" files (generated by nvALT) showing up, and there's nothing I can do about them but exclude their whole enclosed folder, or manually filtering each one of them (until next time a new such file is spawned).

Some improvements that I desire, but can handle, sort of:

1. Make Drop Zone optional (I'm not alone wishing for this).

2. Make Spotlight search optional too (again, not alone)

3. Being able to press to dispose Fresh's window, not just via assigned shortcut.

Other than those remarks, this is one hell of a productivity booster.

The Dropzone is optional in version 2.
I will look at taking that spotlight search out optionally.
The window goes away as soon as you drag an item out or click anywhere. Esc key sounds tempting though.

The wildcard thing is not handled by the advanced prefs - path fragments for you?

The old version(1.2.3) had such a great design!!! Why would you want to destroy it with these old fashioned drop menus and huge permanent text messages on a transparent layout! Also, Spotlight and The Cooler should be optional!

... and Drop Zone should be optional too or, at least, only show when dragging towards it, not whenever one drags a file anywhere on the desktop! :-/

I agree. I like the new ability to change the colours (the previous green colour scheme was burning my eyeballs), but I don't at all want the new drop zone feature, which is turning out to be a big annoyance. Overall, I am satisfied with the new version, but I would be much happier if the dev gave us some control over which features are active.

Drop Zone should be optional and ability to add rows to the 'Fresh Files' zone.

There are about 30 or so items in the Fresh/cool zone, you can see them by selecting and using the arrow key to go to less fresh/cool items.

I bought Leap 3.0 and Fresh 3.0 on the AppStore a couple of days ago. Got the receipt, the apps, the whole shebang. And now, a week later something strange has happened: Fresh tells me that it's beta and has expired and both Fresh and Leap have disappeared from the AppStore. Even from my list of apps purchased!!! Come again? Yes, even from my list of purchased apps! But my credit card is short of some GBP 20.

For the most part Fresh is my "go to" app for things like this. Sure, Spotlight can do a big chunk of what this app does, but The Cooler is what really makes it work.

Pros:
- Does what it says
- The Cooler for quick file and folder access

Cons:
- Fresh Files don't have a filtering mechanism similar to Blasts'
- I don't like the 2 giant green bars going across my screen. I can impede drag-and-drop on a 13" MacBook/MacBook Pro

My Suggestions:
- Make dock icon invisible without third-party apps
- Double-click to open file/folder and single-click (not right/control/command click) pop-up menu for file/folder options
- Redesign the UI for smaller screens, and make it more app-like

Missing:

1. Drag & Drop (+spring loaded) to the cooler.
2. The ability to add rows.


Anyway, love the app.

I'm not sure if this is what you want, but if you drag any file to the Fresh icon in the dock, it's automatically added to the Cooler. I agree with your other comment, though, that it would be nice to be able to add more rows. It would also be nice to change the colour scheme, because it's frying my eyeballs!

This is an awesome app, thanks.

The only thing though is can I use the drag to tag on emails from Mail.app?
