A Better Finder Launcher is the launcher that thinks different.
Launching an application, document or folder should be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Your computer should conform to you, not the other way around.
Our adaptive ranking algorithm learns your preferences and ranks your applications, folders and documents according to your working patterns.
Do one thing really well, don't try to be everything to everybody.
Want a launcher program that is also a window manager, pasteboard, calculator, bookmark search engine, programming language and coffee maker? Sorry, this one is not for you.
Productivity is all about speed.
This never happens: you want to launch your favorite web browser when the computer goes off on an "all hard disks, DVD and local network search" and your Mac grinds to a halt. Our index is always ready to go and provides instant results.
You're the master of all things.
You choose which document types and search locations you want to include in your index and which you want to exclude. You control how often to update the index, what hot key to use. You choose whether you want a simple word or character match or a geeky wildcard expression match.
