What's MacD?

MacD is a new way to access your files. Press a shortcut key and type, for example, any folder's first letters in the displayed dialog box, and the chosen folder's window will appear. In case of ambiguity, MacD shows you a list where you can choose the folder you want to open. You can also launch applications in the same way.

All is done to provide a quick, mouseless access to any of your files without preliminary manual configuration. It is the perfect complement to the Apple Menu, contextual menus (with FinderPop, for example) or any toolbar application. Use one of them to open your Documents folder or to launch AppleWorks, and MacD to open that hidden folder or application you never thought you would have to look at (and there is a lot of them!).
