Overview

innovative::bytes' start is an unique launcher for macOS that allows you to open applications, documents or folders quickly and easily. Create tidiness in your Dock and start items with the smart launcher app start instead.

start supports you and your workflow with a well planned organizational system for your items and quick access to what you need.

  • Comments and notes! Add comments and small notes to your items to describe them in more detail. The comments will remind you what the items can do for you. Small notes with big effect - so you always keep track!
  • Highlight your items as you like! With just a few clicks you can highlight your items with colors and find them even faster. Choose colors for more clarity and organization - effective and visually appealing!
  • Start with a simple keystroke! Assign a key combination to your individual items and start them immediately from anywhere with a customizable keyboard shortcut. Your workflow is no longer disturbed - you'll love the hotkeys!

This application is incredibly helpful and stunning seriously , it combines all my documents, folders and URLs that I use every day in one place at a single click away and the features of tagging and color picking make it convenient and super quick , seriously one of the most amazing applications that enter the OS X platform since a while , it deserves more than 5 stars hands down . It let save a lot of time and save me space on my Mac as I deleted 2 essential Mac apps I have one the menu bar to access applications and folders . Very useful app.

use LaunchPad. or drop Dock from folder that app alias. no more Mac resource and no more money. If you are so obsessed with the ghost of the start menu, return to Windows.

This app is a must-have utility for everyone. It resides in your menu bar and after an easy* configuration, you've got your apps neatly sorted into functional categories. I have a fair number of photo apps and Start allows me to create categories inside the main "Image" category: Editing, browsing, filters, f/x, DAM, Utilities, and Gallery. Since many photo apps are multi-functional, an app can be added to different categories. The cost is much less than what it's actually worth if you have a number of apps that you use only occasionally and hate scrolling through the /Applications folder looking for something whose name you might not recall. This update with the ability to add comments and to hide all uncategorized apps makes it even better.
