Surface1.0.2

08 June 2012

Access documents, Internet links, and applications quickly (beta).

Overview

Surface helps you access your documents, Internet links and applications quickly. It makes it much easier for you to find the information you need when you need it by putting them all in one place, not distributing them among folders and menus. Surface keeps your desktop clean by giving you one area to store the things you want to use or need to remember. Surface also helps you to reduce the number of entries in Finder sidebars, toolbars and also in the Dock and makes you more productive.

The concept is good. I like relations but the documentation and implementation seem to be not-quite-mature. Project stacks would be nice. There needs to be some visible indicator if notes are attached or relations exist while items are not selected. I would love to be able to know where my work is at at-a-glace with notes rather than having to sift through files. The surface needs full keyboard access that is smart and natural- think spotlightish. Needs animation (toggleable). As soon as a note is created the focus should move to the textfield of the note. I can't get the bring-surface-to-front key command to work. The same command should hide it. Line color, especially opacity should but changeable. The close circle should be hideable. There should be an option to hide surface when it doesn't have focus (to be invoked again by key command). There should be an option for a stack or recent files. Dreams dreams. Lots of work to do, but here's to a first release. Ed

Have used it for a few days, and it is OK, considering it is a version 1.0. What immediately hit me with this app - I need the shortcut to hide the Surface panel, not only to open it, you know, reversal - shortcut - open; shortcut again - hidden. The cool would be also to have a possibility to manually change the space that Surface covers.

I tried Surface. Really, I did. Couldn't figure HOW I could use it. OK, you put files, links and stuff on a pad. And then you can link them together with some arrows... Oh, and you can add notes not your files. And then what? I wasn't able to resize the pad (only move it) so it's jamming the full screen. Then, Appdelete went to my rescue. I tried to undertand. I really did. Guess some users will like/need these features. But I didn't.

I was going to comment on the app but you sum up very well what I found trying the app. I love the feature allowing the addition of notes to files, but it should be easier to bring them up (as mentioned above). Other than that, lots of potential, just not very practical as of yet. But please keep going!
