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.

Stil a Bit Immature

While this app is useful, there is a signifant shortcoming. Unfortunately, the developer didn't think to add support for app is full screen.

Manico does not function when in full screen mode of an app. This developier oversight completely lessens the overall effectiveness and value, as I am ofeen switching between full screen apps.

For me, this is a big enough productivity issue to drop 2-stars from an otherwise 5-star app.

Developer Response ,

Manico supports full screen apps. If you meet some trouble of some apps that not work in full screen, please contact me through "Send Feedback" in Manico.


Problems with iTunes and Photos app

Over all it's a great app. However, using shortcuts for Music and Photos app sometimes requires me to choose library which takes extra steps. It really makes the user experience discontinuous. Really hope it will be fixed asap.
