Switche for Mac - the New CMD+Tab Replacement

in Utility (E)

[prMac.com] Coventry, United Kingdom - Kapeli today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Switche, a new Mac OS X app that combines CMD+Tab's simplicity with Expose's style and elegance. Users can define three pairs of keyboard shortcuts. CMD+Tab will cycle between active apps Expose-style and the other two pairs will switch between windows of the same app or between all windows.

Unlike other similar applications, Switche doesn't try to reinvent the wheel and uses Expose for all of its features, as Mac users are already familiar with it. Switche makes use of the most advanced features of Expose and combines them into something as simple as CMD Tab to use.

Switche can be used to:
* Switch between applications
* Switch between windows
* Switch between the windows of the frontmost application

Switche is able to:
* Skip applications with no open windows
* Automatically zoom windows (using Expose)
* Close windows and quit applications by pressing 'W' or 'Q'

Switche is a 2.3 MB application which has no impact on the system and can be easily uninstalled just by deleting it. The application runs quietly in the background, its butterfly-icon can be swittched off if menubar-real-estate is an issue.

System Requirements:
* Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

Pricing and Availability:
Switche may be purchased for $7.99 (USD). The free version displays an alert every now and then and is otherwise fully unrestricted.
