I've already given this a high rating and still give it a very high rating. But I'm opting to comment this time so as to not look like I'm trying to skew the rating. I will say that, for $3, this has been a really great program. The developer has been very fast and responsive to ideas, and this current version is much more evolved than the original one. If you like hot corners, you will love this. It takes smart advantage of available screen real estate. It's stable; it's fast; and it's useful. I know people prefer demos, and there is a "lite" version on the author website. I bought this from the MAS without a demo, which is very rare for me. (Read any of my other reviews of programs.) But this was the only program of its kind, and I opted to trust it. I highly recommend taking it for a spin.

I’ve been waiting for a program like this for a very long time. It works well.

At first it confused me because I thought it wasn’t working. I eventually re-read the instructions (always helpful) and realized that it requires a VERY rapid movement to the side of the screen in order to activate a program. That seems a sensible strategy to avoid accidentally and constantly activating applications. A future feature might want to add the option to click the side of the screen instead of flicking at it.

I was also a bit confused by how to change an application, and I think the program could definitely be improved here. One has to type the name of the program and then click the “Set App” button. At first I simply clicked the button, assuming it would give me a navigational dialog to find the app I wanted. I think that would be an easier approach. Adding drag-and-drop for this would also make it easier.

Finally, they should include the screen bottom as a third area. Depending on what you do, it would not necessarily have to compete with the Dock. I actually have my dock pinned to the right side of my screen, yet I’m able to still use some of that real estate to work with AmbiLauncher as well.

Overall, it’s responsive and flexible. It’s nice to have additional launch options.

You do not even need to take your finger off the touch panel or remove hand from the mouse.

The vertical boundaries of the screen can be divided into sections of different colors. The rapid movement of the pointer to each section of the screen launches the application.You can easy change the color, size and position of the sections and assign applications.You can edit the width of the sections on the border of the screen and their transparency.

When the cursor is near the borders of the screen section, they disappear and do not interfere with pressing buttons or scrolling.
