Thank you for your review

Have a question about Essentials? Need an alternative?

Essentials app can easily become your favorite and irreplaceable shortcuts pad. Just press hotkey (default is Ctrl + space, but you can customize it in preferences) and Essentials will appear where ever your mouse cursor is (or not, if you choose so in preferences).

You can use it to:

  • quickly launch applications
  • access assorted folders, documents and files of any kind
  • act as clipboard or "dropbox" for your e-mail messages and text clippings
  • make YOUR OWN simple Terminal commands/scripts (that can act as droplets too! :) which app can do that! :D)
Customize it!
