Or, buy any one of the dozens of app launcher apps if the Dock is too crowded. Whichever method you use to launch an app, it’s probably not like this new launcher entry.
Launch Apps In Groups
Launching an app one at a time is so 1999. The Dock is priced right and functions well enough if you don’t use many apps at once.
Today’s Mac user has plenty going on onscreen. Safari. Mail. Calendar. iMessage. Contacts. Pages. Numbers. Keynote.
That’s not to mention all the workhorse apps that many of us use, including Photoshop, or Microsoft Office, plus iPhoto, iTunes, and many others.
The way of the 1990s is to click each app to launch.
Hey, it’s the 21st century already. We’re into multi-tasking and what better way to stay productive than to use an app launcher that launches apps in groups instead of one at a time.
Enter LaunchDeck, a clever, inexpensive Mac app launcher app which gives you the option to launch groups of apps at once.
The premise is spot on and the execution is flawless.
Open LaunchDeck and setup a group of apps you want to launch with one click.
For example, the standards– Safari, Mail, Calendar could go into one group. Another group could have Messages, FaceTime and Skype.
Still another group could launch Pages, Numbers, Keynote, or Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
A third group could launch iPhoto, iTunes, and Garageband. You get the idea, right? After you setup the groups of apps, simply select the group from the LaunchDesk icon in the Menubar and all the apps are launched.
Within seconds you get all the apps opened in a group, and you’re ready to rock and roll in a new level of productivity. Many apps. One click.
