MaBaSoft ( has conjured up Application Wizard 3.3.4, an update of the Mac OS X software that provides access to your applications, documents, folders, and disks. Now, on Mac OS X 10.6 or later, the Recent Folders submenu of the Special menu lets you browse the folders you have recently opened using the Finder.

The Background-only Applications submenu of the Quit menu in Application Wizard 3.3.4 now shows process identifiers so that you can distinguish multiple instances of a same process. The clickable area of the Application Wizard buttons in the menu bar has been slightly increased. Finally, a bug that could cause Application Wizard to quit unexpectedly when particular processes were launched has been fixed.

Application Wizard — which requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher — lets you open, quit, and make applications active, run AppleScripts, and turn single application mode on to reduce screen clutter. You can also browse volumes and favorite folders to quickly open enclosed items, eject and mount disks, check memory usage, and easily access recent documents, Address Book contacts, and your iPhoto or Aperture library. Finally, Application Wizard — which costs US$19 for a single-usr license — lets you preview images, music, movies, and documents and view file properties and metadata.
