AppsBar gives you a easily accessible launch bar for all your recent closed applications.

It keeps track of all* your applications that you close and shows them in the order they were last closed (less used applications have a semitransparent icon).

Move your mouse pointer to the top of your screen, left click and drag down to make AppsBar slide down from above, scroll left or right to navigate the application icons.

Alternately you could slide it down by clicking on AppsBar's icon in the menubar or use the ⌘⌥B keyboard shortcut.

Great care has been taken to make AppsBar use as few system resources as possible, it also does not engage the discreet GPU and is fully retina display compatible.

Application icons are added and reordered automatically when you quit applications, you can exclude icons by clicking and holding on one until (x) buttons appear, that is all the manual management available, NOT A DOCK REPLACEMENT.

* excepting applications that have no dock icon

What's New

Version 1.6

This update says farewell to the linen and the OS X versions before 10.9 while saying hello to a more subtle and polished appearance.
We also bid goodbye to the global shortcut which is not allowed to sandboxed applications anymore.

Ratings and Reviews

Its ok…. would be Good if it didnt keep messing up.

I like the App Concept, but i run multi monitors and if I click activate AppBar on my other monitor, it behaves and shows the Bar on the wrong Monitor, plus... its not even at the TOP , plus… it duplicates (glitches) some of the screen content from the other monitor .
I hope this glich (BUG) gets fixed soon and i would , easily update Rating to 3 or maybe 4 Stars.

Works Great

I have seen a few reviews stating that it didnt work. I have had no problems and it works awesome. You can just drag your screen and voila, your recently closed apps all right there. I am running OSX 10.8.3 on a 15in late 2011 MacBook Pro. It is very resource friendly as well; 32mb of memory, and the process for it only runs about 1.7mb. It only runs .02% on my CPU (4core)

It does what expired, but need to do improvement.


It's one interesting idea for someone turns between different apps while they do not want to keep switching on.
The moive screen will stop while you acctive appsbar, you can not remange the applications that have been thrown in. It does not support to drop in/off. That would be better if we can manage which application will not be shown in the appsbar. It does not support to active the appsbar through multi touch, I do like what Unclutter does.

It's looked like the team needs to do more with this app.

It's fine for $0.99, but looking forward more improvement in the future.
