Blaring misfeature not properly addressed.

See further down for comments.
[Version 1.0]

When switching apps using Command+Tab between two other apps, the Finder repeatedly becomes the last used app even when it wasn't.

Disabling FlyingWindows stops this behavior and Command+Tab works as expected again.

Please fix this misfeature as FlyingWindows will have to stay unused until then.

Ditched the famed Keyboard Maestro for this.

Spark might be older but it has quality that surpasses KM.

The iTunes controls feels outdated. There is no backtrack function and no mute toggle.

KM is rapidly becoming nothing but an AppleScript hotkey trigger app. Haven't found anything that KM does better than Spark. Especially nothing worth $36. A pity you can't recycle app licenses.

Until (and if) the promised update ever becomes available, I'm happily moving back to Spark.

KM is now simply hyped and overrated in my opinion.

Excellent app...

Two suggestions for improvement:

1. Larger font size - especially useful for high resolution screens and older eyes. Mac screens have grown beyond 9-inch Mac SEs, there is plenty of space available. Take a hint from "Alfred" and do something about it LaunchBar-style.

2. Go 64-bit! It's 2011, it's the natural progression and LaunchBar is soon the only app on these Macs that requires the 32-bit framework to be loaded, taking resources.

Thank you!

Eh... Version 1.1.1...

Then why does the screenshot say 1.8.0?

That is sure some fast development between typing out the info and taking the screenshot... Good job! ;)

Eh... any way to disable the _original_ dock titles?

It looks cheap and "patchy" having them appear behind HyperDock. :/

Apparently the developer has chosen to ignore this effect for now (according to a FAQ on their site).

One would have to assume the screenshot is thereby manipulated as the appearance displayed does not match the result on closer inspection.

When this has been given proper attention I'll consider buying but not before.

One suggestion would be to give an opaque background as an option (admittedly quick and quite un-creative though). Either way, effects of an UI shouldn't be forced lest they want to seem contrived.

Sorry, but I'm at my limit with Mac apps to no longer handles quality details, especially blaring ones.

Move along, nothing to see here.

If I could give this -5 stars across the board, believe me I would.

It's that bad.

And more.

How does this stand in relation to the original, a.k.a. Hazel?

Found a new bug unfortunately although Spaces _might_ be the one responsible here...

When using Spaces together with the single-app/hide mode in FlyingWindows, something makes the cmd+tab-switcher to default regardless to Finder as the last used app.

This makes it necessary to keep pressing twice on tab, which defeats the possibility of a quick flick on cmd+tab to return to the last used app.

Although in regard to Spaces, disable FlyingWindows and everything is back to "normal" with the tab-switcher. i.e. quickly flick between the two last used apps.

Sorry if this is confusing...
yet so is figuring out why I kept ending up in Finder all the time without having the mouse cursor anywhere near the tab-switcher.

o/t, the tab-switcher feature is actually something that other OS does better as in OS X this feature is clearly "over-thought". As it is prominently a keyboard feature, Apple could at least give us the option of making it disregard the mouse but no. :/

For now it is either Spaces OR FlyingWindows. Thank you.
