Wonderful app ! Just one thing : There is too much black in the windows. I think the gray OSX is less... aggressive.

Especially because it comes from Windows, this application does not interest me.

I love this! Thanks and kudos to the dev. Was sad to see LiteSwitchX stop working when I finally upgraded from High Sierra, but this more than fills the gap, including quitting an app or closing a window with the very intuitive keys. Being able to view only the windows for the active app sets it apart from the built-in Command-Tab and even Mission Control / Exposé. Yes I know that Ctrl+Down Arrow does the same, and I could easily set a shortcut fn key, but Exposé windows aren't gathered neatly into one panel they way they the are with AltTab. Also having two two key combos for two different modes is sheer genius. This may well be my first 5-star review. Bravo!

I didn't realise how much I missed the features of this app until I started using it - combines the functionality of command-tab with command-tilde with a bit of Mission Control thrown in as well. I've now replaced the built-in command-tab to this.

This works well as described, so if you install it, it will do what it says. I tried it for about a week, but found that the Mac application switcher was more intuitive, so it was faster for me. But this one shows more info and if you've been enjoying the Windows application switcher, you'll really like this on your Mac.

AltTab is updated every few days - that's a way to stay visible...

This works even better than the default macOS app switcher. It allows to select a specific window of an app, when more than a single window of the same app are open. I like this so much that I have assigned ⌘Tab - this is now my new default app switcher. Thanks for developing this amazing open source app.

Umm... Command-Tab does the same thing and has been built into the Mad OS since at least System 7. Not sure why this would be used--and yes, I do get that it's free.

This works as advertised. For years I have used Command + Tab to switch between apps quickly and Command + Tilde to switch between tabs or windows when in an app. It's become instinctive for me. Having this installed brings another option in being able to view ALL open windows. However, I'm unsure if this is improving my efficiency and speed over using the other two methods. Still, one cannot complain as this is a free utility. Thanks dev for making this available and updating it regularly.
