Mac OS X provides many ways of switching apps; Exposé, Spaces, the Dock, customizable “Hot Corners”, and the old school Windows-like app switcher that opens up with Cmd+Tab. The app that we are reviewing today aims at improving this built-in app switcher, and make it more functional, especially for users that are used to Windows’ classic app switcher.
Keep reading to find out why this app has the potential to improve the way you switch between apps, and how it can help to simplify your computer workflow by helping you focus on one application at a time.
With any computer, there are often some personal preferences in the way you work that make you think, “Wouldn’t it be great if only I could work differently in this one area.”
That, presumably, is what the developer of Switché thought about switching between applications. This inspired him to build a piece of software focused on enhancing and adding greater flexibility to the Command–Tab application switching method built into Mac OS X.
Switché introduces greater control to application switching and also presents a stylish Cover Flow view of the applications your computer is running. This review will show the immediate visual impact of using Switché, and also introduce the range of preferences that let you customize it to meet your particular needs.
