Trickster overview

Trickster (was Blast) is a productivity booster application that places all recently used files at user's fingertips, providing him with a fast and easy access to them.

Trickster keeps track of all the files the user has been recently using on his Mac. With Trickster, all these documents are just one click away. The user can access the file list anytime by clicking on the application icon in the menu bar, and perform multiple actions on the files: open, preview, move and more.

  • Handle displaying new Dropbox client's paths and iCloud-based Desktop/Documents
  • Add support for Setapp version of Hookmark
  • Fixes and improvements for updating to future versions, especially on macOS Sonoma

    • Helps with copying DEVONthink items, for example
    • Option-Double-Click or Option-Return will open the file using a default app for the type instead of inside DEVONthink.

Very handy for tracking recent files. Use it in combination with another great app called Workspaces and you really will have super-quick access to files you used to have to dig for.

Yeah, Trickster 3.0 now with Mojave design – I love it! And for those really ;) experienced Mac Pros: Trickster is something like the modern version of legendary and unbeatable "Super Boomerang" 30 years ago which reliably "remembered" everything opened on the Mac…

2.8 fixed the memory issue for me, which I only noticed with Mojave. It seems so strange that all apps have 'File/Open Recent' but Finder does not.
