TigerLaunch1.0.3

30 June 2006

Lists all apps in menubar for quick launching.

Overview

TigerLaunch is an easy-to-use and easy-to-configure application launcher for OS X. It displays an Apps menu at the top of your screen listing all your applications in alphabetical order - no matter what folder they appear in. You can easily configure it to exclude applications you rarely or never launch.

TigerLaunch allows you to be more selective about what apps are dock-worthy, so your dock doesn't get so cluttered. It also makes it easier to launch apps that are buried in sub-folders, such as in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.

What's new in TigerLaunch

Version 1.0.3:
  • Now a universal binary-runs on Intel and PowerPC Macs.
  • Removes the .app suffix that Tiger wants to add to app names. (Depending on your configuration.)
  • Now adds .xcodeproj files to the Projects menu. (The suffix changed since the last release of TigerLaunch.)
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the table in the Configure window was empty.

I've been using this little launcher for over a decade across various versions of OS X... It's handy, simple (no complicated or lengthy setup time to add apps manually) ... I keep apps I don't use all that often in it and keep most commonly used apps in the dock. Checked out other similar launchers over the years, but always came back to TigerLaunch. For me, it has worked flawlessly with every version of OS X so far. Currently running on Sierra (10.12).

Continues to run on 10.14.3 but getting a message that it needs to be 'optimised' ie converted to 64bit application.

Kudos to the Developer - it's one of my essential mac apps (works well in hackintosh) that I install in every build and also recommend to new mac users.

To the Dev: please consider updating the app to 64bit – would be much appreciated.

Continues to run, and run, and run. Now using it on macOS Mojave, 10.14.1. macOS sends a message at startup something like "this app needs to be optimized for the current Mac OS version" (or similar) but doesn't impact functionality. Yay!

I have been using this for so long, likely since it first came out, and it is still great, so simple. It keeps my desk uncluttered, with a nice little dropdown that includes all those sometime apps.

Runs on the most recent OS X.

I've looked and must say there is nothing in MacUpdate that comes close to the simplicity of this app. I've used it for years and will hopefully continue to do so. Other apps have the tendency to over complicate a very simple task. They have all sorts of options menus which are not necessary and take away from the functionality of the app. Tiger launch is great. Open it and there everything is. Uncheck what you don't want, refresh. Perfect.

Fantastic little app, still works great with Lion. Too bad it appears to be defunct now. I've used it for years and will continue to do so as long as it works!

Still a good application. What I like about this launcher is it's simplicity... no folders or menus or hot keys, which a lot of similar apps suffer from. TigerLaunch is simply a list of apps and their icons. Easy to configure, launch and use. Have this on my eMac and just installed it on my MacBook running Leopard. Works flawlessly. Well done!

TigerLaunch has been a very nice way for me to extend the amount of programs I can easily access. Since my dock is pretty well filled up, it's nice to be able to use TigerLaunch to get to my lesser-used programs without having to dig into the Applications folder. At first, I overloaded it with applications, and it became a bit sluggish. However, when I lightened its load by removing programs that I almost never use, it sped up very nicely and now remains a part of my very small collection of startup applications.

Just what I was looking for. It's simple and easy to use. I would like a few more options, but certainly a help as is. Thanks!

I've been looking for a replacement for 'my favorite things' seeing as that program is no longer being developed. The one thing this program needs to be able to replace it is a keyboard shortcut to be able to access it.

HimmelBar also lets you customize which programs are listed. Though TigerLaunch's icon is better...

Just what I was looking for! I used Himelbar before I found TigeLaunch. I love the option to select which apps I want to have in the menu!

I like it alot but know matter how many times I check or uncheck the apps to be selected, I keep getting 2 or more of same app icons - the refresh doesn't seem to do much but otherwise, it really like it! Thank you.

This a great little app, but if your looking for alternate ways to launch then Dragthing 5 is the answer. I've also tried Atomic Beef (another menu launcher) and found they are about the same.

10.2.8 -- Simple, brilliant. Sorry I just now found it. Fast enough, to me, that lack of grouping/categorization isn't really an issue. Thanks!

How different is this from Drag Thing which is the bomb! I just don't like that I have to Pay for the upgrade after paying for the previous copy, so, I still use DT 4. Let me know! SupaPhly

Unlike Yadal and Rocket Launcher, it cannot categorize or remove Icons. Icons slow dont my G3 finder too much. I hope the developer will add more features to this free app and I will reconsider it soon.

Unfortunately, it only lists alphabetically. You cannot categorize the list at all.

I like this app., but I like yadal more. Yadal has more features and less of a cpu load, although both use little anyway.

I am new to Mac, and this application is a very nice app to have. I love the icon, and it really helps me locate what I need, being new and all. Nice software, and at a price I can afford...lol. Thanks!

You have to quit and reopen if you want to reconfigure the list (10.1). Some problems when resizing the configuration window also - won't scroll back to top properly so you're stuck with the bottom half if not careful (quit and relaunch sorts it). A bit 'jumpy' in the menubar too - doesn't behave as well as other menu bar items. I prefer the interface over YADAL's, it's dock equivalent, but YADAL doesn't have the problems I described so I'm using it instead at the moment. I can't wait for an update tho' to see if the above probs are fixed.
