Overflow allows you to quickly and easily launch applications, open documents, or access folders. Reduce clutter in your Dock by storing infrequently-used items in Overflow instead!

Any item you see in the Finder can be added to the Overflow interface, making it accessible through a few simple mouse clicks or keystrokes.

* Visual Organization *
Create separate collections for your applications, project files, commonly-visited websites, games, often-needed folders, or anything else that makes sense for you.

* Fully Customizable Layout *
Rearrange items by clicking, holding the mouse down for a moment, then dragging the item to a new position or collection.

* Hot Key Shortcut *
Instantly pop open the Overflow window from anywhere using a customizable keyboard shortcut.

* Type-to-Search *
With the Overflow window open, just type to instantly search for any app or file on your computer. Use type-to-search to find not just items you’ve added to Overflow, but any file on your computer! Filter items by collection to quickly find exactly what you’re looking for.

* Quicklook Previews *
Overflow makes it easy to check the contents of files: just hit the space bar when hovering over an item to open a Quicklook preview.

* Full URL Support *
Drop URLs or web bookmarks from your web browser or the Finder into Overflow. Works great with Quicklook!

* Keyboard Support *
In addition to type-to-search, you can use the keyboard to control almost every aspect of Overflow.

Escape: Hide the Overflow window.
Arrow Keys: Select items, then launch them using the return key.
Command-up / down arrow: Move up or down through the collections list.
Command-number: Select a collection corresponding to the number pressed.
Spacebar: Open a Quicklook preview of the currently-selected item.
Option-Click: Opens an item without closing the Overflow window.
Command-Click: Reveal the clicked item in the Finder.
When searching, shortcuts are also available to launch items quickly without ever taking your hands off the keyboard.

A Very Welcome Upgrade

So glad to see that finally upgraded this to officially support the current MacOS.

I consider this to be an essential piece of software, as I've relied on it for many many years. I also find it to be much more useful than Apple's default Launchpad.

4/5 Stars — PLEASE bring back the "Edit" option available in the original Overflow. Adding and rearranging a large amount of apps/icons in the current version is a nightmare.

So Pleased to See You Again

Overflow has been my Application Launcher since I bought it from the developer at one of the last MacWorlds San Francisco before Apple pulled out. So I have been using it for at least 10 years. I love how graphic it is. I have categories for “Utilities”, “Video Production”, “Audio”, “Photography”, “Graphics”, etc.

I’m so delighted to see it in 64 bit so I can continue to use an app that has been an every day part of my desktop experience for a decade. As soon as the notification came up that there is a new version, I jumped right in and am honored to be the first review.

Way to go Stunt Software and THANK YOU!

Nice upgrade

This upgrade was long overdue to an app I've used dozens of times a day for the last decade. Looking forward to integrating the new features in my workflow.

One suggestion: Those icons are way too large. Please scale them down, or give us the option to scale them down to an efficient size.
