Links file types to apps for quick launching.

Overview

Soxy resolves a common problem when there are multiple versions of applications like Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, Adobe Illustrator installed on the same computer: double-clicking a file's icon will often cause the wrong application version to launch.

As a result, you might unwittingly re-save a document into a more recent file format, which could be a bad thing. Maybe it's a customer file, and the customer might not be able to open the updated file when you e-mail it back to her.

To work around this problem on OS X, we've created Lightning Brain Soxy - with Soxy installed, there is no second guessing, and a double-click in the Finder will open the correct application.

Hmm, nice? But... Seems like it is a handy util, however that kind of an asking price for such a limited utility seems over the top to me. I just use Path Finder and Finder functionality to define my apps just fine and usually the icon of the app is sufficient cue for me since the diff Adobe versions have some differences that are enough for me to notice. Anyone else really seeing a compelling reason to plunk down the cash for this?

FYI: From their Read Me file… A Soxy activation is NOT transferrable to a different configuration. This also means that if you buy a new computer, you will also need to activate Soxy on that computer/configuration, which might imply purchasing a new activation code.

Does an excellent job for anyone who needs to run multiple versions for different clients! Simple, not too expensive, when compared to the time it saves! Also works for Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver & Quark. Great support as well!
