File managing app.

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?

Is there any way at all to get rid of the hideous UI colors? Yuck! I need a digital shelf not a carnival! HUD-like or something? Hello? Anyone?

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.

The working solution: I just downgraded Fresh back to version 2.6.2. No more CPU hog, fine. I'll stay with that.

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

I use the cooler all the time, so I definitely don't want them to drop that! I frequently have items that I know I will need again on a project and don't want to search again. Stick them in the cooler and they are RIGHT THERE. Get rid of them when I don't need them anymore. To each his own.

Love the spotlight searchbar and wonder why you don't like it. There has to be a way to search your documents when Fresh is active. Do you scroll through searching manually? Thanks for your input.

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!

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?
