Group apps into workspaces
$9.99 From Fardini Media, switchem.co Needs OS X 10.11 or later Window management is something of a holy grail on the Mac. The operating system includes Spaces for organizing windows across multiple desktops, but the feature lacks granular control. Switchem takes a different tack: It lets you set up multiple grouped app workspaces for different tasks and flip between them using a mechanism similar to mac OS’s built-in app switcher..
Once you’ve organized all your task-related app windows, simply create a new group, give it a name, and Switchem assigns a number to the workspace. You can then switch to it at any time using a ç+†+[ number] shortcut, which brings all apps to the front in their original positions.
The solution works well on single desktops, while additional handy shortcuts make opening and closing all apps within a group a cinch. It’s just a shame Switchem doesn’t support full-screen apps – also designated Spaces by mac OS – across multiple displays, although the developer has promised compatibility in a future update.
the bottom line. Good for defining multiple workspaces on a single desktop.
