Sidefolders is a huge time saver

I found my way to SideFolders by way of another very handy program by Roeyen’s called Sidewriter, a similar pop-up program that gives me a way to instantly take notes, copy and paste text etc. by a quick mouse move to the edge of the screen. SideFolders makes all my folders and files instantly available with a quick flick of the wrist to the edge of the screen, and then, no matter what program I’m in, I can drag and drop files that might otherwise we hidden or require a trip to the File menu. I use SideFolders so often now, I can hardly imagine using my Mac without it — ditto, SideWriter. Good stuff at a very reasonable price, and when I had a problem, I got very quick support from the author. I highly recommend SideFolder as a great utility tool.
