Workspaces is a great app for people who work on multiple projects. Especially for designers, programmers, project managers, students and teachers. And probably for you.
Each project we work on consists of bunch of resources like files, folders, applications, websites, important e-mails. They are located at different places on your computer. And you need to look for them every time. That causes lots of distraction, time wasting and finally being tired of additional thinking and procrastination.
The key feature of Workspaces is remembering all that resources and launching them quickly.
Just click on the menu bar icon and momentary you'll see all the stuff you need for your work. You can open them individually or by clicking START button which opens the ones with purple dot.
Editing your workspaces (that's how we call a project) is really easy. Just click Edit button and you'll see the editor window. All you need is to drag and drop your resources or click + button to add them manually. You can choose which ones will be run when you click START Button.
There are also some advance features. Workspaces allows to set application which runs a resource, so you can open one website in different web browsers. The same way you can choose an application that will open your folders or documents. You can also open Terminal in specified folder.
Workspaces 1.5 is focused on continuing user interface enhancing, so the app becomes more intuitive, simple and clean.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is very basic. It does not create a separate workspace with only the apps you want. It does not close apps you don't want. It does not arrange the windows the way you defined. The only think it does is just open the required apps. That's it.
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear your disappointment, but the primary feature of this app is to get quick access to resources related to particular projects (including opening some of them with a single click). It's not a window manager. It works just as it is described.
Simple and powerful tool that save time
Just bought this App for about week ago, i use it in my work and in the morning i click on Start and it will automatically open all the Apps, documents, website that i use and it saves me a lot of time. Simple but powerful tool and i think there is many more ways to use it to save time. Totally recomennded this App to everybody.
Useful and well-executed app
This app does what it says on the tin, and does it well. It is particularly well-suited to GUI-specific apps, and though the setup process for each space/project can be a bit fussy, the effort involved is far less than what would be required for manual opening every item for each work session. It is unfortunate that due to apparent sandbox limitations the app prevent more complicated settings command-line and non-gui apps. But, its included functionality and the developer’s responsiveness make it more than worth the modest price.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
