Bevy is an application launcher designed for Mac. This utility automatically detects all of the programs you installed on your computer, lists them into a nicely-designed interface, and comes with easy to configure settings.

Bevy can be accessed from your Menu Bar or Dock. No matter which method you choose, the main screen is revealed as soon as you click over Bevy's icon from the status bar or Dock. This screen will reveal a list showing the apps you installed on your Mac and let you know which programs are currently running on your computer. You can also create a Favorites' list where you can add the programs that you use frequently.

Another important advantage is that Bevy communicates well with Spotlight (Mac's default search tool). The app launcher uses the search utility to stay up-to-date; so, every time you install or remove a program from your computer, Bevy will immediately alter its content.

The program's main window cannot be resized. However, you can move the main screen anywhere on your desktop and sort the applications list according to your needs. So, not having the ability to change the resolution of the main window shouldn't be a big deal.

To summarize, I think you should try the trial version of the program and then decide if it's worth registering the product. In my opinion, Bevy is one of the best app launchers designed for Mac as it provides you with simple to configure settings, is efficient, and comes with an affordable price.
