[prMac.com] Yuba City, California - Raj Bains today is pleased to announce the first release of Nifty, an interface enhancement/productivity app for Mac OS X. Nifty essentially adds a customizable toolbar and popups for each app on the system. From performing key combos to selecting menu items to opening files and folders, Nifty radically boosts productivity by making everything users do easier:
* Key Combos and Menu Items:
Users will never have to memorize a key combo or dig through a menu again - Nifty will remember and perform them for them.
* Files, Folders and URLs:
Users can stop clogging up their Dock and have Nifty display files and folders only when they're using apps which need them. Folders on Nifty's toolbar are fully-functional, allowing drag and drop of multiple files on them to move, copy, or create aliases.
* Developer Actions:
Nifty can send messages to other apps. If a developer chooses to add support, they can have their application do just about anything in response to button clicks.
* App Management:
An improved app switcher can be used to switch, quit, and hide apps, access favorite apps, and open files via drag and drop. Nifty's toolbar can also be used to hide other apps, or quit/hide the active app.
* Window Management:
Nifty can be used to Activate (bring to front), close, and minimize the active app's windows.
Other advanced features:
* Create both global and app-specific button layouts
* Hold down modifier keys to perform a wide variety of time-saving actions
* Use built-in images, the icon of a file or folder, or an image
Users can easily customize Nifty by changing the size of the toolbar and popup buttons, editing and re-arranging favorite apps, changing color themes, changing how button titles and tooltips are shown, hiding/adjusting the Nifty robot overlay, toggling between a horizontal and vertical bar, and more.
* Mac OS X 10.6 or later
* 1.5 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Nifty 1.0 is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.
