These are features that the average Mac user would or could or should find useful, but Apple doesn’t bother promoting their very existence. How do you get to those deeper hidden features? With the free Deeper app.
Mac Hidden Secrets Revealed
Look around on various Mac-oriented websites, including this one, and you’re likely to view a few advertisements for utilities with options to customize Mac apps.
Save your money. Deeper digs into OS X and many of the Mac’s basic apps to unlock hidden functionality in the Finder, QuickTime, Safari, iTunes, the Dock and a bunch more.
Deeper does this by giving you access to hidden functions in 10 different apps– Finder, Dock, QuickTime, Safari, Mail, iTunes, Login, Spotlight, plus a few system wide functions.
For example, in the Dock, Deeper can alter the appearance (get rid of or bring back the 3D mirroring effect), and toggle options you never knew existed in the Dock.
What’s interesting about Deeper is the pains (or, maybe, lack of pains) the app’s developer goes to not show all of what Deeper can do.
Seriously, the guy’s website is virtually devoid of a list of what Deeper does. That means you have to try it out for yourself.
You’re not likely to be disappointed.
If you’ve ever wondered about all those expensive utilities that claim to clean the Mac and run system maintenance with a few clicks, then check out Maintenance and Onyx, two other free utilities from the Deeper developer.
Why the trio is free, I don’t know, but it’s a gain for you to keep your Mac running well, and find those handy little features Apple doesn’t want to bother to tell us actually exist on a Mac.
