Fresh overview

Fresh allows you to instantly find attachments you download, no matter what weird name they have. Rename files that you just downloaded, then file them with a single click.

Filed Documents is a place where Fresh will file items by date, helping keep you organized. With Fresh you can easily find any file - no matter where you are - without going back to the Finder. Plus it has an awesome 'file dock' which works like the dock, but who has room for files on their dock anymore?

The developer's website is fine and Fresh is updated for Silicon Mac. Tried it, and find it very useful in managing the files you are working with. Similar to Default Folder X and Trickster, but in a much useful way. Unfortunately the price $34, not $9.

Liked it very much in the past – but seems the recent versions of Fresh became a CPU hog (up to 11%). So I often just quit it – and that's not the right direction.

Redundant features like spotlight and cooler spoil what otherwise could have been a great app.

A great app for everyday use. Can you add an option to hide the cooler? There are people like me who only use the fresh files feature.

Use this every day. Work with a file, image, screen shot in one program - use Fresh to apply it to another. I can't image using a Mac without this. It's simple but improves productivity immensely.

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!

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 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!

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.
