AmbiLauncher is a Mac application that aims at providing you with a simple and quick way to launch programs on your computer. This utility comes as an alternative to accessing the Applications folder or the Spotlight search engine to locate and open tools on your Mac.

The program places a slim, colorful bar on the left side of your screen. From the Preferences panel you can choose which utilities to be placed within AmbiLauncher's bar. All you need to do in order to launch any of the included programs is to quickly drag your mouse cursor over the area containing the tool you wish to open.

Each section of the app's bar can be used to run programs from your Mac or scripts. You can configure various settings within the Sections panel; for example, you can change the color of a certain section, select another app, add a script file, etc.

Other than that, not much more can be said about AmbiLauncher. It simply does what's being stated on the homepage of the developer, with just a few clicks and in a short amount of time.

In conclusion, I'd say you should try the trial version of this program and see if matches your needs. Personally, I think this application would help you save plenty of time when it comes to launching tools on your Mac and it's definitely worth buying it for your computer.
