Manico is more than just a simple app launcher for Mac. This program provides you with easy to configure settings, offers you the ability to define multiple global hotkeys, keeps track of the amount of time you used Manico on your Mac, and so much more.

Once you launch the utility on your computer, its icon will be shown on your status bar. The Preferences panel of the application offers you all of the settings that you need to configure in order to use this program to its full potential.

Manico comes with 2 sample profiles but you can create your own by clicking the Custom button and selecting the apps you wish to be displayed in the Quick Tools Access Panel (it's displayed in the middle of your screen after hitting Manico's main shortcut key). The global hotkey for revealing the aforementioned panel can be defined in the Advanced screen from the Preferences window.

After you complete adding apps to the screen menu, you can define global hotkeys for immediately launching the selected programs. Manico will immediately launch any of these apps as soon as you type the selected key combinations, without slowing down your Mac in the process.

Another great thing about this program is the fact that you can add apps to Silent Mode. These apps won't change their behavior if you're using any of the defined hotkeys.

In order to have access to all of its features, you need to make a cheap in-app purchase. It takes only a few moments and it's definitely worth it.

All in all, Manico is an efficient and easy-to-use app launcher. You should definitely give it a try if you want to boost your productivity and get access to the apps you need with just a few clicks.
