DAEMON Tools for Mac
Excellent virtual CD/DVD drive emulator
Sapiens is an application launcher that gives you quick access to anything on your Mac. The program exercises your memory by arranging applications in a certain way, which you'll become accustomed to the more you use the program. Sapiens itself has what it calls a brain saver, which effectively means the program improves the more you use it. The application launcher offers five different layout displays which which distribute applications on the interface differently. While they might seem confusing to you at first, you'll quickly see a pattern in the placement of applications on the Sapiens interface. For this reason it's best to stick to the one that you feel the most comfortable with.
Sapeins provides a different yet effective way of accessing applications. Just like with Quicksilver, you can find any application by typing their name into the Sapiens interface. Your mouse's scroll wheel can also be used to quickly shuffle through applications. A particularly cool feature in Sapiens is that you only need to move your mouse in a circle to activate the program.
Sapiens launches applications quickly based on an assimilating display pattern and a handy "find as you type" function.

I saw Sapeins mentioned in Macworld and downloaded it out of curiosity and love it. Very easy to install and use allows me to be more productive by keeping my most used programmes at hand, all I need to do is make a couple circles with my mouse and I can launch a programme much faster than navigating to the Apps folder.
Pros: Fast, Easy, Elegant
Cons: I work in Photoshop every day and when making masks erasing or using a brush to fill in large areas, if you make any circular movement, Sapiens launches. It would be nice if there were other options besides a circle to invoke Sapiens. A square maybe? A triangle? A circle is REALLY bad if you're an artist and working in a painting programme.
Such a shame if it is true.

My opinion of Sapiens is that it will help me be more productive. I will, with a circle motion of my mouse, be able to access applications that I use on a daily basis faster. Not only faster but also without much frustration. I sincerely hope that the snow leopard bug is fixed soon. I am sorry to read that users that have paid for this program have not received the support that they should have received. I shall most certainly not purchase a copy of it until I have seen a bug-fix, which I hope is soon, for both myself and for those who also have had much faith in this interesting product.

It's been months since Snow Leopard which killed this application. Please developer, let us know what's happening?

Great program, but ever since the Snow Leopard upgrade, it's been broken. I've paid for this program, and I expect it to work. Unfortunately, they aren't answering feedback emails, they're not answering personal requests (as a paying customer) for progress reports. I love this program, but be careful... I don't feel as though we the customer are the highest priority.

It's a great program, but what's the point if you can't type to even search for a program in Snow Leopard?
