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.

Today we’re kicking off a new competition to win a copy of Blast. We recently reviewed Blast, and this is a great place to discover just what the handy little menu bar app is capable of. It’s a great way to keep track of the recently changed files on your Mac.

We have five licenses up for grabs, and entering is really simple. All you need to do is follow us on Twitter, and post your username in the comments below!

The competition will run for one week, and we’ll announce the winners on the Friday, 9th June. Good luck, and enjoy your weekend!

Okay, I just had that file open! Where did I save it? Where did it go? Damn. I’m sure this hasn’t just happened to me. If that’s so, I guess Apparent Software built Blast just for me!

Put simply, Blast is a menu bar applet that tracks what files you have recently opened, modified or touched. So if you opened up an image file in Preview, or an iWork document, Blast will keep track of it.

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Blast. The developer describes Blast as a productivity booster application any Mac user could use to save time by having their files at their fingertips. It was created to spare you the annoyance of searching around in Finder to locate the file that you were just using.

Blast keeps track of all the files you recently used on your Mac and provides you with a fast and easy access to them. Read on for more information and screenshots!
