[6:00 AM] Program Simplifies Desktop And Application Management
by Staff

ClaireWare Software has upgraded the program switching utility, Program Switcher, to version 5.5.0. Program Switcher allows users to switch between actively running applications using simple keystroke commands. According to ClaireWare:

Program Switcher is a convenient timesaving control panel that allows you to switch between the applications running on your System 7.1 or greater Macintosh via a simple two-key keystroke. It was inspired by the same function found in "Windows," but has been improved and transformed into a unique and fully configurable control panel that makes switching applications on the Macintosh as simple as pressing a couple of keys.

Key features include:

  • The ability to switch, launch, quit, or hide any application with a simple keystroke
  • The ability to switch, hide, or close windows with a simple keystroke
  • Full support for the latest MacOS technologies, such as Appearance, Navigation Services, and Multiple Users.
  • Elegant, unobtrusive interface that makes the seemingly simple task of switching applications truly simple and easy to do.

What is new in v5.5.0 is a complete re-write of the hot key feature. The hot key keystrokes are now completely configurable, and several new hot key actions have been added.

Program Switcher is available as shareware for US$10. You can find more information at the ClaireWare Software web site.
