Zingg! is a simple contextual menu for the Finder. It shows you a list of all applications that claim to open a particular file. A similar capability is now built into Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar). However, Zingg! lets you configure certain applications to appear always or never in the pop-up, you can also set it to not show Classic applications when the Classic environment isn't running.
What's New
Version 1.4.1:
  • Version 1.4.1 fixes a crashing bug which happened under unusual circumstances - unusual in my testing, that is.
  • There's a new setting to toggle the menu between names and paths with the "option" key. Pressing "Caps Lock" before pulling down the menu still works as before.
  • Application names can now start with '-' or any other menu metacharacter without messing up the menu. Useful!
  • There's a new setting to show icons next to each application in the menu.
  • The application list is again checked for eventual duplicates.
  • On Panther only, there's a new setting to show "always" applications in italic and "default" applications in bold.
  • Command-S now saves changes.
  • The application list can now have keyboard focus, as shown by a focus ring around it. At this point, you can scroll around the list by pressing the arrow keys, page up/down keys, or any alphanumeric key to jump to the first application whose name begins with that character. This won't affect selected rows in any way, though.
  • Help tags have been revised.
  • The application type column is now suppressed if classic applications are not shown.
  • A selection frame is now drawn for unselected rows while the contextual menu is up.
  • All generic alerts have been changed to critical alerts whenever appropriate.
  • The installer now refuses to run on system versions older than 10.2.

This is a great little CM because you tell it which applications you want listed, unlike Apple's version which lists pretty much all the apps on your hard drive. Unfortunately, Zingg doesn't work with Intel macs, and I *really* miss it since I upgraded. It would be really great if the developer, or someone else, could adapt this concept to a CM for Intel Macs.

I've been using Zingg for about a year. Great product that does everything an openwith CMM should do. For free. Three cheers for the developer.
