A good start

I was looking for a good (64-bit) replacement for the wonderful MaxMenus, and this allows me to view all apps, but I would also like to view running apps, documents, most recent docs, etc.

So far, so good - hopeful!

This app has a lot of promise and I really hope the developer continues to work on it. For now it can only launch apps from the hot corners. What I would really like to see is a way to attach folder navigation to a corner. For example, attach DropBox to the top-right folder, move mouse to corner and a navigable list of menus of folders and subfolders is avaiable. Something like putting. a folder in the Dock only far easier to get to.

Anyway, thanks to the Developer for the good work to date!

Room for Improvement

Not bad, not bad. So far I only use it to summon a safari browser in my only unused normal hot corner. I would like to see an option to call on the program while holding down the command key or something like that. Normal hot corners allow that. Keep it up!
