Spect is a very fast image browser and organizer for those folders full of miscellaneous images you keep on your Mac!

• Quickly open folders containing thousands of images, even from a network drive.

• Use your existing filesystem storage; no importing, no separate catalog or library files.

• Browse just top-level folders, or deep scan into sub-folders.

• Prune images you no longer want with marquee selection and delete.

• Slideshow and shuffled slideshow.

• Drag and drop images.

• A fast, native Mac app built with Cocoa technologies!

Not a replacement for image viewer

This is purely an image browser. It's fast, but it doesn't integrate with Finder and doesn't handle file associations. That is, you can't click an image and open it in Spect (even if you create an association manually). To use the app you should open the app first, and then browse to the folder you need from it.
I should say that it's pretty convenient as an image browser. Once you get to the folder, viewing is fast. Unfortunately, since it doesn't work with Finder, it's a pretty useless purchase for me.
