If you work with files, Trickster is the ultimate productivity booster for you.

Quickly access to your recently used documents, folders, and applications.
All your important stuff is now just a couple of clicks away, accessible from your menu bar.

Did you just open a document in Pages? It’s in Trickster.
Did you just download a file? Don’t bother searching your downloads folder. Trickster has it one click away.
Did Dropbox sync files from another computer? It's in Trickster.
Everything you were supposed to be working on is a click away, ready when you are.

Some of the things Trickster can do:
- Drag and drop files from Trickster to Finder or any other application like you'd do from Finder.
- Open files and applications from Trickster, preview them or reveal in Finder.
- Includes ​Preset filters to only display images, audio files, videos, documents, applications, folders and specific locations.
- Create your custom filters based on location, file types, Finder tags (on OS X 10.9) or string matching.
- Track only relevant files and ignore all the rest.
- Favorites "sticky" bar gives you fast access to your most frequently used files, folders, and applications. Drop files on a 'favorite' folder to move it there or drop on a 'favorite' application to open it with that particular app.
- Add files to any notebook on Evernote

Trickster is 100% keyboard-friendly. For ultimate productivity and speed, you can use it entirely without a ​mouse or combine mouse with keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys.


Version 2.7

- Trickster's window can now be dragged by the top or bottom bar to detach it from the icon in the menu bar. It can then be reattached by bringing the window close to the icon. Very useful to reduce the amount of dragging you need to do on large monitors.
- Monitoring can now be paused to save CPU resource during file-intensive operations or when running operations that create a lot of files that you don't want to see in Trickster. Trickster can be paused from its main menu (bottom-right button) or using Mac's Defaults mechanism (see User Manual for details on that).
- Cosmetic fixes and improvements

Gesehen, eingesetzt und sofort davon überzeugt!


Ich habe Trickster den Shortcut Alt+Y zugeordnet. Das geht unter „Trickster Preferences“ (im Trickster-Fenster rechts unten auf das Zahnrad klicken). Dazu dort noch „Launch automatically at login“ angeklickt und fertig ist die genialste Suchmaschine für die Dateien, die man gerade verwendet hat. Die Mac-Funktion „Benutze Objekte“ zeigt bei mir beispielsweise nicht die Dateien an, die ich aus Mail als anhang irgendwo hin gespeichert habe - Trickster macht das ohne Probleme! Deutsche Übersetzung wäre nett - allerdings muss man da nicht so viel Text lesen. Das Programm erklärt sich eigentlich von selbst :-)

Awesome! But sometimes starts tracking cloud sync. and CPU usages explodes ...


I am using the app since years and haven't found a better one.
But from time to time it uses up all of the cpu to track files that are often touch to cloud sync (dropbox and google) and somehow then just gets stuck and doesn't recover unless i reinstall it.
Not really sure if that can be solved as i need tracking touch files although not the ones certain processes touch for indexing or else ...

Schneller geht es kaum :-)


Klasse, jetzt kann ich meine benutzten Bilder,Schriften oder Downloads ohne den Finder zu benutzen verschieben in den gewünschten Ordner. Schnell Programme öffnen, jetzt müssen die PROGRAMME NICHT MEHR alle im Dock sein.
Zeitersparnis auch beim Suchen, wenn mann mal den Namen vergessen hat ;-) findet es man, voraussetzung: Trickster sollte immer im Hindergrund mitlaufen.
Jetzt nur noch auf Deutsch und es ist Perfekt!
