We’re all familiar with the Finder, but what if we could have access to our most used documents and personal folders at the ‘flick of a wrist’? Enter Sidefolders, an application that aims to give you quick and easy access to your recent, and regularly used, files and folders.
It’s a great concept, and one that has a lot of potential. But how well does SideFolders execute the idea? Read on for more information, along with a quick screencast overview of the app.
We’d like to take a moment to say a big thank you to this week’s sponsor, SideFolders
SideFolders is an awesome little utility that gives you quick and easy access to your files from anywhere. By docking on the side of your screen and only showing up when you want it to SideFolders is never in your way but is always ready to go when you need to open something.
We reviewed SideFolders back in April and the latest version (1.5) has even more to offer including a great new interface, the ability to browse folders right in the app, a configurable delay to prevent accidental flyouts and a customizable show/hide global keyboard shortcut!
At a mere $4.99 on the Mac App Store, this is an incredibly useful tool that can really speed up your workflow. I was skeptical myself at first but as soon as I started using it I realized that I’d probably never want to be without it. The developer is very devoted to the project and continually turns user suggestions into great features. Check it out for yourself today!
