Manico is a tool designed to launch and switch apps quickly. By using it, launching and switching apps on macOS will be incredibly smooth.

By default, Manico supports Option + number keys to launch or switch to the corresponding app, so users no longer need to use Command+Tab to traverse to the desired app one by one or find on the Dock, which brings efficiency and experience improvement.

In the process of long-term use, users will also develop muscle memory, and thus become more and more efficient in the use of macOS.

Manico supports three modes to facilitate users' needs in various scenarios.

- Dock mode: mapping the apps on macOS's Dock for launching and switching.
- Switcher mode: mapping the currently opened apps to switch.
- Custom mode: fully customize the apps you want to launch and switch, including customizing different shortcut keys.

In addition to the three basic modes, Manico supports a rich set of preference features, including:

- Customized appearance
- The launch bar position
- Whether to show the status bar icon or not
- "Silent Mode" to be invisible and non-intrusive on certain apps

Manico also comes with a "Usage" feature, which allows users to see how many times they call the app each day with a graph to get a clear picture of their usage.

We hope that Manico will live on your computer and provide you with a smooth and efficient experience!

If you are a software developer you are use to having thousands of windows open at once. I typically have my IDE, Web Browser, Chat, Terminal, and an emulator/screen mirroring app open at the same time.

Managing these windows is one thing and I use a different solution for that, but switching between everything is another. I can't possibly show every single window at once, and using the native approach on Mac is a pain if you have to cycle through all of them.

This was exactly what I wanted. One shortcut and boom I'm on chat, another one I'm on my browser. Fantastic.

This app is amazing but I cant buy it

There is no option to buy a license of this app anywhere so I can't buy the retail version. I hope this gets fixed!

works great

My only gripe is that for some reason after an update I presume that the pop up menu saying what each shortcut was seems to not be working.
