A menu bar option would not only have been nice to have, it would also have made more sense for what this tool does. But that aside, the Hide Switch interface is easy to use, provides the tools needed to get the job done, and had no bugs in any of our tests. There are plenty of other file management tools out there that will do this and much more, but if all you need is a tool to show/hide your hidden files, look no further than index.Dock Restarter is designed to perform a single, much-needed function for OSX users, hard restarting your dock if a problem develops. While not a common problem, it happens often enough to be frustrating for users with older Macs, or those who run multiple apps at a time. Whether due to too many apps opening or because of a performance issue in the OS, pending an update for a specific app, a dock freeze can take seconds or minutes to clear. This app fixes that. Dock Restarter opens from a DMG and requires the usual security override to get running in Mountain Lion. For this reason, it is a little frustrating to set up, but once running, it runs smoothly. Just open the app in the DMG and it will automatically restart your dock for you. The screen will flash and all of your apps will disappear for a split second before returning. If there are no problems, you won't notice anything other than the restart animation. If there is a problem, it should reset and stop the problem, potentially force-quitting the app that is causing it. While there are other ways to get around a dock freeze, including force quitting, Finder or whichever app is causing the freeze up, Dock Restarter is a nicer, faster, and not quite as intense option for shutting down the dock without shutting down the apps in it. If you have frequent dock freezes and are tired of waiting or shutting down to get past it, download this free app - it works well for what it promises.index is a much-needed tool for the OSX interface, bringing resizing and window movement automation to the Mac. Living in the menu bar of your computer, this app allows you to set hot keys for numerous functions. You can move windows automatically, resize them, and split them up according to the dimensions of your screen. One of the few functions that Windows users have over Mac users is provided with this app. After installing index, which involves the standard drag and drop to the applications folder, you will need to verify the app to open because it comes from a third-party site. After verification, a new icon joins your menu bar and you can start swapping out windows, moving them around, or automatically resizing them to various corners of the screen. Even just the split window function is a useful one - something that Windows users have enjoyed for years. When you throw in the ability to map each of the resizing tools to a hot key of your choice and keep the app running in the background whenever you turn on your computer, this becomes a very useful tool. If you frequently work with a large number of apps and are not satisfied with the mission control settings already on your Mac, index is a nice tool to add to your menu bar. It's quick, doesn't use up much memory, and allows you to quickly move windows around the screen to streamline work and collaboration between programs you are using. index for Mac analyzes the music in your iTunes library to create recommendations for new music you might enjoy. Though its attractive and intuitive interface invites the user to explore all types of music, many of the recommendations are obvious - that is, already in your library - and the app crashed four times while we tested it. The program's setup initiated and completed very speedily. After we downloaded and ran index for Mac, it took only a couple of minutes for it to scan through thousands of tracks in our iTunes library, generating recommendations as it analyzed our tastes. We were surprised, then, that the program's first recommendation to us, Daft Punk, an Electronica band, was in a genre that we are simply not interested in, and isn't at all represented by what's in our library. Furthermore, the program recommended that we might enjoy De La Soul, a hip-hop group, based on our interest in The Jungle Brothers, a similarly styled hip-hop band, ignoring the fact that we already owned De La Soul's entire discography. We perused through other recommendations, and listened to samples, which are streamed from either the iTunes store, YouTube, Amazon, or SoundCloud. However, each time we attempted to listen to music, the app crashed. Sometimes we got to hear two or three songs before the crash happened, but it inevitably happened. index for Mac offers promise for the music enthusiast who no longer has a neighborhood record store to go to for browsing, though tweaks are necessary to make this app as useful as a service like Pandora.A handy, little utility, Text Expander for Mac lets you configure keyboard index that automatically expand into larger snippets of text as you type. We installed the program without hassle, and when we ran it for the first time were presented with a basic tutorial, which got us working with the app quickly. Text Expander for Mac comes with several built-in "snippets," as they are called, for frequently typed bits of text, like e-mail and snail mail addresses, phone numbers, or the time and date. Snippets are highly configurable. We created a form letter that, when activated, launches a little dialog box with a blank field for the name. We typed in the name, hit "OK," and then the full text of the letter appeared in Word. We were able to generate a TinyURL on the fly, simply by copying a link to the clipboard and then typing "/tinyurl" in our document. The program then used a script to create the TinyURL at the Web site, and then pasted it directly where we typed. The possibilities seem limitless with what Text Expander for Mac can take on. The app offers a backup function for all your snippets, and a feature that allows for syncing with other computers and even iOS devices, as well. Text Expander for Mac, quite simply, seems to be one of the cooler and more original apps available. Anyone who finds themselves doing a lot of repetitive typing would do well to give the fullyindex demo a try.index for Mac creates an identical copy of a folder for other uses. Its interface is easy to use and its tutorial breaks it down well enough for even the most inexperienced users to get right to work. After its initial startup, index for Mac brings up a window with basic instructions and a warning to use caution to prevent the loss of data. It also explains the simulation function, allowing the user to double-check the output before initiating the program. The actual program includes a simple menu with a button to select the source and target folder using a file finder. The user can then select from several sync options, where the destination folder is either completely replaced or just supplemented with additional files from the source folder. They can also designate items to ignore or treat differently by the program. The program also lets the user simulate synchronization during which no files will be removed or replaced. This is quite useful if the user isn't really sure what will occur if they choose to synchronize. A checkbox turns the simulation function on and off, helping new users protect data. A few of the buttons toward the bottom of the window are not labeled and have unclear functions, but the basic indextions are easy to find and use. index for Mac works well for those users who need to create matching versions of two sets of files for later use.With a basic, but well thought out interface, index for Mac offers a useful tool for those who need to view hidden files on their system. With just one press of a button, this application will be easy enough for anyone to use. After a quick download, index for Mac starts up into a small window. A large eye graphic sits in the middle of the window, with a single slider below with just two positions. The default is in the hidden position. Clicking it restarts the Mac Finder and displays all of the hidden files. This function is described well in text just below the slider. Clicking the slider a second time opens the Finder window again, but this time with the hidden files removed. A help window can also assist users who need instructions. Users who need to reveal hidden files should look into downloading index for Mac. This application is easy to indexte and works well. index for Mac locates and labels files quickly on your system. Its additional features for searching files makes it a good program for many users. index for Mac installs easily and starts up into a rather basic interface. Most will be able to discern its main functions without too much trial and error. A row of check boxes on the left side allows the user to select options for indextions, including extensions, prefixes, and suffixes, among others. To the right of each of the checkboxes are areas where text can be entered. For example, next to the find function, user can enter the text to look for and its replacement. In the bottom of the window, a list of selected files appears where the change can be previewed and confirmed before implementing. The labels and boxes do not have obvious functions, which could make a new user's time learning the program difficult. Additionally, once we clicked on the "Add Files" option we noticed that some of the buttons were not labeled in English, but in Dutch. The search and replace functions did work quickly during testing, returning the proper names as entered. index for Mac performs its functions well with only a few issues along the way. If you don't mind figuring it out on your own and have lots of files to index, this is a decent choice. index for Mac's streamlined interface and automatic syncing to existing accounts makes it a good e-mail index. Additional features, including index media integration, further add to the program's appeal. index for Mac's main menu includes a row of buttons along the top that indexte all of the common e-mail features. These include syncing to the Internet for new mail, archiving, replying, and forwarding, among others. A bar on the left side allows users to see which e-mail accounts are active, and to switch between them. The response time for changing accounts was quick. The main window contains all of the messages for the active account, which are displayed clearly. Users can also change the size and format of message information, as well as view index like to-dos, images, and e-mail attachments. The ability to add multiple e-mail accounts from services like Gmail and Apple Mail, as well as manual e-mail server setup, is an excellent feature, allowing users to see their new messages from a number of sources in a single program. In addition to working well as an e-mail account index, index for Mac's ability
