LaunchMagic is a Mac application that provides you with a quick and simple way to open programs, files, and folders on your computer. The utility sits on your Menu Bar from where you can get immediate access to your favorite apps, configure the program's settings according to your needs or check the integrated help manual.

The Launch Center window (it can be revealed by clicking the "Open Launch Center" button from the main menu of the app) provides you with a list containing all apps from your Mac. You can sort them according to your needs, mark your favorites, and learn information regarding the programs you installed on your computer.

The Favorites list can be accessed from the main menu of the app from the status bar. Unlike other app launchers, this program also offers you a quick way to open folders or documents from your Mac. Just add them to the Favorites list and LaunchMagic will display them on its main menu.

My only issue with this application is the fact that the program doesn't allow me to resize or move the Launch Center screen on my desktop. You can only toggle fullscreen or windowed mode.

Still, the application is very efficient and simple to handle. What's more, you don't have to pay much to use it on your computer.
