Yes, mostly. Actually, I like the Finder and appreciate the changes and upgrades Apple has done to the Finder to bring it into the 21st century. Dual panes. How cool is that? But the Finder could use some simple, built-in functions you’ll find elsewhere in some cleverly designed Mac apps. Here’s one.
Show Your Stuff, Finder
Here’s the problem that OrangeCard solves. When you’re in the Finder and drag a file from here to there you don’t always know what the file is. Is it text? Is it an image? What’s the image? When you go to paste something from the Mac’s clipboard, what is it? What does the photo or graphic or text snippet say?
OrangeCard knows. This really is cool. Drag any Mac file onto an OrangeCard to see it. Paste anything you’ve stored on the Mac’s clipboard to an OrangeCard and see it. In fact, OrangeCard is so smart it displays information about whatever it holds at the moment.
How does it work? Drag and drop.
Normally, whenever you copy an item– text, file, image, photo, or whatever– to the Mac’s clipboard, that’s the last you see of it until you paste it. Now you can not only see what was copied but OrangeCard gives you information about the file itself.
Look at all the metadata that OrangeCard displays instantly.
It’s as if the Finder was telling you everything you want to know about a file without having to open Get Info (and OrangeCard displays more data anyway) or use a third party app which displays the data one file at a time.
OrangeCard works with a simple drag and drop. Drag the file– whatever it is– onto OrangeCard and get treated to more metadata than you thought most files had.
Wait. There’s more. Much more.
OrangeCard can handle URLs, too. Wait. What? URLs. Why? How? Drop a standard or secure URL onto OrangeCard and it will send a head request and display all the details.
This is so cool and so functional that you can also drag a Mac’s volume– hard disk drive, connected disk drive, USB stick, network server or whatever else is connected to your Mac– and OrangeDisk will display even more detailed information.
All Mac clipboard items are not created equal. OrangeCard can even deconstruct what’s on the clipboard and give you details about each item.
All that for 99-cents. It’s a get-your-geek-on Mac utility that under-promises and over-delivers.
