Instant access to your files.

SideFolders gives you instant access to your devices, places, shared folders, downloads and recent files. But also to files and folders you have added to SideFolders.

Just move your mouse to the edge of the screen and SideFolders pops out.

Stop looking for the same files over and over again. Just add them to SideFolders and access them at the flick of your wrist.

SideFolders allows you to drag and drop files to and from any application without losing focus of the application you are working with.

Organize your files in a logical hierarchy independent of your filesystems hierarchy.

Really useful utility - would like one feature.

I really like this app - it’s a great way to keep a specific collection of apps, files, etc. handy, and I use it daily. It would be nice to have a sort-by option that allows the contents of folders to be sorted by name, date added, location, etc. Add that in, and I’ll gladly add a star!

SideFolder — Very Helpful and Handy, just like Sidewriter

I use Sidefolder dozens of times a day to quickly access my favorite folders with the flick of my wrist or mouse. I love how you can drag and drop images, and I love that I can get a quick preview of a file by simply selecting the file and hitting the space bar, just as you can in the Finder. When I had a small glitch, I got immediatel feedback from the develper. Best $5 I’ve spent at the App Store in quite a while. I highly recommended Sidefolders (and its sister, Sidewriter.)

Get Rid of Desktop Clutter

Easily access often-used files, folders, apps etc and keep them off the desktop. A couple of tips: The SideFolder window can be resized by grabbing the edge of the window and dragging. Items inside the SideFolder window can be renamed, removed or trashed by selecting the item and holding down the “Control” key. Quick response from the app’s author when I needed help. Highly recommended.
