SnapRocket: Easily navigate between desktop windows with just a couple of keystrokes. No more fumbling for your mouse to switch windows.

Do you have a 13" MacBook with dozens of windows stacked on top of each other? No problem. SnapRocket allows you to quickly burrow down to the window you want.

Or perhaps you have dual 30" Cinema Displays with light-years of real-estate. SnapRocket can blast from one screen to the other at warp speed.

Please correct me or help me out:
I've got one of those crammed 13" Screens. Is there no way to know or see in which order maximized windows follow each other? Same goes for windows on any edge.
Btw, only 100 operations to try? Some people get nervous trying to figure out what they do and first thing they see is a countdown.

Specifically, I miss the function to get back to a previous window by some shortcut. It seems, SnapR. does not have a fixed order of windows at the same position.

SnapRocket is one of those apps that is so cool to use that it may change how you relate to your computer. Exposé is certainly direct-and I wouldn't be without it-but the keyboard interaction is very limited. With SnapRocket you can go all over the place from the keyboard, tune its behaviour to what makes sense to you, choose the colour of the selected window's overlay etc. I just enjoy using it. It has so far proved very solid, and has an extremely responsive developer who seems to have many improvements in the pipeline.

(Incidentally, the price is $14.95, not the $19.95 shown here.)

Don't Exposé and Spaces have keyboard shortcuts that let you switch to a desired window using just the keyboard?

Did you try the app? When you have tons of windows those expose items can get pretty small. Expose can not just bring a window up front, you have to go search for it in expose. With this app you can cycle through your apps w/o having to use expose... without ever changing your desktop at all. Windows are cycled through and you choose which you would like and it is brought frontmost. Come on bud, we all know about expose etc... use the app and then make a decision. If expose is good for you, great, if not here is one option of many. Review's are more helpful than comments. Give us a positive and negative so users can get an idea of what the app is like, its' shortcomings and benefits are what makes MU review feature great. I personally have a small gripe w/ the way the shortcuts are set but then again this is just the first release since 1.0... It's still an infant.
