What is QuickPick for Mac

QuickPick is an application and document launcher designed to feel as if it's part of Mac OS X itself. Just drag and drop any number of applications or documents into the QuickPick window, and they'll only ever be a mouse click, flick, or key press away. Watch video tour.

QuickPick is a great place to store documents and applications that you use frequently. When it comes to launching, QuickPick replaces the roles of Finder, Spotlight, Stacks, and the Dock with one quick and easy interface, that is fast to use with the keyboard or the mouse.

QuickPick keeps any number of applications just a mouse flick (or keyboard shortcut) away. When you activate QuickPick, all of the windows on your system will zoom off into the distance, and the documents and apps you want close by will fly right into view. It's like having a fourth dimension just for your files.

QuickPick displays files, folders, and application as clickable icons which can be arranged in any way you want by simply dragging them around, similar to the Desktop in Finder. To launch an application or open a document from inside of QuickPick, just click on it. You can also select and launch items with the keyboard.

  • To launch an application or open a document from inside of QuickPick, just click on it. QuickPick will hide itself when an item is launched or switch to another application.
  • To reactivate QuickPick, you can click on it in the Dock, press a keyboard shortcut, or flick the mouse cursor into the corner of your screen.
  • To close QuickPick, you can press the Escape key or just switch to another application. You can also launch an item in QuickPick using the keyboard. When one or more items are selected, simply press the Return key to launch them. Typing to select an item is also easy. Simply start typing and QuickPick will begin looking for the item, immediately showing you what it has found. Once you've narrowed in on the item you want to launch, just press the Return key.
  • You can add files into QuickPick at any time by drag and drop.
  • To remove items select them, and press the Delete key.

I have this app on my SnowLeopard versions of the OS and now I have it in Mavericks.It runs great and took a lot of maneuvering to get it right because I have a lot of Apps. It runs great and I like it.I am looking forward to further versions for improvements.

Excellent app. Allows me to keep sets of apps. and sets of folders and files etc. as projects I'm working on. I wish it would support QuickLook for previews of files whole in a hierarchical view, similar to say.. FolderGlance or DragThing (which I'm trying to replace hereby.. as it does not fit my style anymore though have loved it for many years).. The browsing of files in folders should IMO be something between these: FinderPop/FolderGlance/DragThing. PS: Also the "Icon" file (inside folder that have a customized icon) should be hidden (for those folders. But overall this app is already quite useful, and could be improved to be perfect..

Found v2.2.1 to be really buggy under 10.8.3. When the app opened the icons would 'jump' down to the left making the page off-center. Then when trying to organise icons by dragging a selection the offset would completely mess up the true selection. The sliders to adjust icon size, horizontal and vertical spacing are awful - no live feedback as dragging. Again making it really hard to use. Shame as the hot corner shortcut made it really accessible.

I wanted to like this, but bugs and other glitches made it too awkward and time consuming to set up. There's an option to rename items, which would be handy for apps with ridiculously long name (I'm looking at you, Lightroom), but every time I tried to change the name, it just reverted to the old name. The screenshot in the MU listing shows icons arranged symmetrically on the screen, but that can only be achieved by manually setting the icon spacing at exactly the right amount. On my 15" MacBook Pro, I had a big gap down the right side where I wanted to put some more icons, but to do so I had to shrink the icon spacing slightly. Unfortunately, the only way to adjust the spacing is with a clumsy slider that doesn't show the new value until you let go of the slider, so I could never get it right. The app should be able to automatically calculate and set an optimum icon spacing. While selecting and dragging icons around I accidentally launched a few apps. It would be easier to set up QuickPick if app launching was disabled while editing pages. By this point I gave up. QuickPick may be a useful launcher, but for me it became too annoying to set it up that I gave up. As always, YMMV.

Label text on my 13" MBP Retina display is fuzzy (which is in significant contrast to the icons, which are very sharp). Seems like it would sure be nice to have an option where one of the pages could be marked as "all applications" (e.g. a page that automatically has all of the icons that would normally appear on Launchpad) so we can completely forget about Launchpad and/or keeping a separate page that has all the stuff we rarely use, but don't want to lose track of. The lack of this type of functionality has me wondering whether the $10 purchase was worth it.

Oh dear. In this newsest version, if I click on a folder, it doesn't just open the folder. It now gives me a popup with options that include "open in Finder." I don't like that. But I don't see any option anywhere to let me have it automatically open a folder in Finder if I click on it. I hope that build that option back into this.

this is a wonderful app that lets you customize launcher (which feels useless without quickpick)
