Works. Kinda.

Enjoy the launchpad for frequently used apps. The lack of clickthrough makes it a hard sell, but the dealbreaker that keeps me from making this my daily driver vs the original is that when using spaces, the screen blacks over and becomes unresponsive when switching between them.

awesome app!!..I do have questions though

I love this app as I can stream just about anything in a floating window while I work (which seems to be all the time these days). I did try to as a support question but could not figure how to do so from your site. I would love to know how to add / adjust the icons on the Dashboard screen so I don’t always have to type them in manually with the open web URL option.

Thanks Again

This is an amazing app. The best part is it is free. I don't see why a lot of people are giving it bad reviews or low stars but this deserves a lot of credit. Someone took a lot of time to make this and I just want to say thank you so much for releasing this applicaiton for free. I appreciate you a ton!
