Helpful App

I work with lots of files every day and it is nice to be able to go to one place to find them. Sometimes I put the file in the wrong place and I used to have to search for it using Searchlight which until Yosemite never seemed to find anything. With Trickster, I can find the file is seconds and move it to the right place. I also use DropZone to keep track of some files that I used to keep on the desktop that I make reference to all the time, but see that I can make those files favorites in Trickster and delete DropZone. (I just did—sorry DropZone).

Excellent productivity app

Trickster is an immensely helpful menu bar app. I turn to it everyday to find recently used apps, edited or downloaded documents or pictures I am using for projects. It is fast, I am able to preview documents right from the list, and then move, copy or open them as needed. Highyl recommended.

Great work flow support app

Trickter is a daily use app in my menu bar to quickly find and filter recently used files for a seamless work flow. Easy to use and very useful. Customizable; a helpful utility on all of my Macs.
