Sapiens 1.2.2

The next evolutionary step in application launchers

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. View full description

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.

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.

Changes

  • Improved compatibility Mac OS X Spaces

Sapiens is an application launcher, it helps you access all the applications in your Mac. Sapiens is clever because it learns from you, so unlike any other launcher it predicts the applications you will likely need and offers a visualization of this prediction in an intuitive way.
Sapiens is activated by moving the mouse in a circle (yes, it is a mouse gesture that finally works), therefore touching the keyboard is really the last resort to be used in case you want to search for a specific application.

Sapiens was created because we recognize that users are tired of launching applications by typing (whether by using Spotlight or any other keyboard-based launcher). These launchers make us feel like we're back in the '80's when the keyboard was the only input device.

Everyone wants to have visual access to their favorite applications, but it's inefficient and frustrating to organize applications in different folders or in different docks. Life is too short, and there's not enough time to waste fighting against the entropy of the system.

Sapiens the is next evolutionary step in application launchers. It is a visual tool that predicts the applications you will want to launch and lays out the application's icons in way that makes interaction with the mouse simultaneously intuitive and revolutionary.

    "Not functional with Snow Leopard, yet"

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