Unobtrusive status bar menu application for macOS that provides quick access to previously used files, or to specific directories
Trickster is a simple Mac app designed to improve your performance by enabling you to quickly access recently used files or applications, via an unobtrusive status bar menu. The app allows you to define watch filters, creates a list of recently used files, and provides support for dealing with common tasks.
Status bar menu app that streamlines your workflow by granting quick access to recently used documents
To take advantage of the Trickster capabilities, you must start by defining your own filter settings by adding watched folders or whitelisted text. You can also filter the results by creating text, path, or extension exclusion lists.
Note that Trickster also comes with a collection of predefined filters that organize the recently opened files into different categories: images, documents, movie files, audio files, downloads, or items that are included in your Dropbox folder.
Effortlessly find specific files or folders by applying various filters and sorting algorithms
Within the Trickster main window, you have the option to visualize the files in compact or expanded view. The latter is highly recommended because you also get to see the file path. On top of the category filters, Trickster also enables you to sort the items in the list by time or by name.
If this is not enough, Trickster also includes a basic search tool that should reveal the file you are looking for in no time. Once you found the file you ere looking for, you can open it using a certain app, you can reveal it in the Finder, share it with friends, and so on.
Forthright status bar utility that can easily increase your productivity level
Trickster is a small app that offers you the possibility to quickly access recently opened files and documents in a streamlined manner. As a result, you ill not waste any more time by searching for specific documents.
What’s new in Trickster 2.7
January 20th, 2018
- Trickster’s window can now be dragged by the top or bottom bar to detach it from the icon in the menu bar. It can then be reattached by bringing the window close to the icon. Very useful to reduce the amount of dragging you need to do on large monitors.
- Monitoring can now be paused to save CPU resource during file-intensive operations or when running operations that create a lot of files that you don’t want to see in Trickster. Trickster can be paused from its main menu (bottom-right button) or using Mac’s Defaults mechanism (see User Manual for details on that).
- Cosmetic fixes and improvements
