MaBaSoft has updated Application Wizard (http://www.mabasoft.net/products/applicationWizard/), a Mac OS X tool that provides access to your applications, document and pictures, to version 2.5. You can now choose what types of volumes appear in the Special menu and allows you to eject disks, partitions, and servers and mount ejected disks.
On Mac OS X 10.5 or later, the Recent Documents and Recent Servers items can now be added to the Special menu so that you can quickly open recently used files and connect to recently used servers. Also in Application Wizard 2.5:
° The Activity Monitor command has been added to the System Memory submenu so that you can quickly open Activity Monitor and learn more about the processes running on your computer and their memory usage.
° The Aperture Library submenu now fully supports Aperture 3.
° The iPhoto Library submenu solves some incompatibilities with iPhoto ’09, fixes some bugs, and lets you see how your published albums appear online.
° The opening of aliases from the Special menu has been enhanced. In addition to that, you can now resolve aliases in the Special menu.
° Application Wizard lets you now disable previews for files located on shared computers and file servers.
° The Switch to Previous command has been added to the Switch menu.
° Single application mode allows you now to temporarily show multiple applications so that you can use them together.
° Application Wizard lets you now define keyboard shortcuts to quickly accomplish frequent tasks.
° If you use hot keys to display the Open, Quit, Switch, and Special menus, you can now choose where menus appear on the screen. Besides the pointer position, you can now display menus in a screen corner or centered on the screen.
Application Wizard lets you open, quit, show and hide applications, open them automatically at startup and force them to open using Rosetta, turn single application mode on and quit background-only applications and the Finder. With the software you can also navigate volumes and frequently used folders to quickly open enclosed items, access favorite files, recent folders, Address Book contacts and your iPhoto or Aperture library, preview images, music, movies and PDF files, copy pictures and display slideshows, view the metadata associated with files and check system memory usage.
Application Wizard 2.5 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and runs natively on PowerPC-based and Intel-based Macs. It costs US$19 for a single-user license, though version 2.5 is a free update for registered users.
