Slick workflow help!

This is an amazingly helpful app, easy to navigate, and fun to use. You can customize it about any way you’d like to work best; getting at files and folders is a breeze and so much faster than digging though your desktop, or even using Spotlight on OS. Such a simple idea so elegantly produced.

Great time saver!

This shortcut tool helps me get to places I use frequently in fewer steps. It also helps when these things are filed in various places, for the sake of file organization, yet I can get to them right away. It is nicely implemented, and has earned a permament place in my command bar. Good work!


Simple app, and good at what it does.

It would be great if it had an option to always open the shortcut in a new tab on the existing Finder window if one is open. As it stands, I end up with a lot of open windows, and opening in a new tab would make it easier than having to merge the Finder windows.
