Though I never got a chance to work on a Mac, I have heard a lot of great things about it. Some of my friends who come from creative domains (music editing, 3D arts, photo editing et al) have good things to say about it, especially the new Mac OS X Lion and its features.
During such conversations, I learned about a cool new way to launch applications using Launchpad. Launchpad is a new feature introduced in Mac OS X Lion. It’s an iPhone like application launcher for Mac, which makes it easier to launch applications. As there was no Mac around, I used my Android to see a webcast for Launchpad, and it was really impressive. Here, have a look.
When I came home, I started searching for a similar tool for Windows, and that’s when I learned about XLaunchpad, a Launchpad like application launcher for Windows. Let’s get started by downloading and installing the tool first.
Once you have installed XLaunchpad, there are various methods to launch the launcher which we will see a little later. For the time being, drag your mouse pointer to the top left corner of the screen to launch the XLaunchpad. As soon as your mouse pointer reaches the corner a launcher will whoosh open with some applications pinned on it. As I already mentioned, the tool is an iPhone like launcher and you can use the directional keys or mouse drag to switch between screens.
