Workspaces

Just choose a workspace
and press START.
Workspaces launches all resources (files, folders, websites, etc)
for a project you're working on with one click.

It gathers all resources in one place, so you don't need to look for them.

Essential or just supporting?

Use auto-launch (START button) if you need a particular resource (file, website, folder, email, etc.) each time. Open your document manually if you want to see it just from time to time.

Screenshot 2

Keep your mental energy for what matters

Create your project once and launch it in seconds. Save your time for important things. Click EDIT button and the editor window appears. Drag and drop your resources or click the + button to add them manually.

Free yourself of having to remember
about everything. Every. Single. Time.

As you have everything at hand, keep laser focus on the current project. Not on what’s missing and where to find it.

Keep it well-structured.
As simple as possible.

Enjoy a clear view of your workspaces. Explore neatly arranged resources supported by icons and separators.

Focus on a single project at a time. Jump to the next one
in just a few clicks.

Because switching between folders is now ridiculously fast, you can easily juggle the projects. Whenever you want. Just use a powerful START button and QuitApps plugin.

Have a clear idea where to start with notes

Every workspace deserves its notespace. Jot down your ideas. Save reminders of what you’ve been working on last time. Whatever it takes to easily get back on track.

What People Say?

Workspaces is one of the few apps that I use everyday, all the time, for a few years now. It's like one click - boom, all apps and files needed for a project is ready to go.
Sometimes "getting started" can be a hurdle for actually getting started "working". Before Workspaces, I would even procrastinate because switching from project A to project B means closing and opening a number of different things. Workspaces gets me started doing real work straightway, effortlessly!

As a researcher and teacher at a university, I am constantly dealing with changing tasks. Workspaces helps me to quickly access all the relevant resources. It's easy to use, yet very powerful and looks nice too. It has become an indispensable tool for me.

Your app takes away the unnecessary thinking I have to do when I navigate the overly complex folder trees I’ve setup.

The excellent Workspaces app from Apptorium.com has become one of the first apps I install when setting up a new system. It is that essential to me.
But what needs to be mentioned, aside from its amazing utility in bringing order to my various project workflows, is that the team behind Workspaces is *on it*! My experience has been that I got immediate answers to my support queries, was met with friendly and competent support, and got the feeling that the people behind the app really care about their software and their customers. And that is a rare thing these days. I could go on with all the features I like about Workspaces, but do yourself the favor of learning about them on apptorium's website and finding about all their other excellent offerings. No, I am not getting paid to write this, but I believe in supporting those who provide us with the services we need in order to complete our projects with success. That alone would be priceless, but their prices are such that everyone can afford to use their software.

Once in a while I have to build a website. Because it's not my everyday-job (or perhaps because I'm not the youngest developer anymore ;-)
I use to forget some details so I help myself with checklists in OmniOutliner, project-templates in OmniFocus etc. But the task remains complex enough: Which checklist did I use to open for static sites? Where did I stored the Git-repository for this site? Where is xScope?! I used to have it always open in this stage of the project! What was the name of the app for testing the responsiveness? And so on. So I started using Keyboard Maestro for this and everything was fine again. I would open everything that I need - specific files and apps - via a Keyboard Maestro-macro. And I'd start this macro with a simple, distinct keyboard shortcut. And for each similar project I would duplicate the Keyboard Maestro-macro, edit certain files or apps and give it another distinct keyboard shortcut. The world was simple again and I was happy. Until I got so many simple, distinct keyboard shortcuts that I couldn't remember them anymore! That was the moment I started searching for an app that does what I want - and found Workspaces. It was everything what I need - but much more elegant solved. Workspaces let you specify which app and files should open. You organize all this files and apps in… "Workspaces" and start them from a list with a mouse-click. This is the very case when a mouse-click is much more effective than a keyboard shortcut! But the Apptorium-team behind Workspaces did much more than that (the app is already in the Version 2) and it shows in the little details that make a developers day much more productive: from the sensible defaults to the thoughtful preferences it acts and feels like a really nice Mac-app - one of the many nice apps from Apptorium! I had a problem. I’ve kind of solved it… and then I really solved it with Workspaces! So now I'm feeling like the youngest developer again! ;-)

Workspace is an amazing app. Each time I work on a new project, I set a new Workspace and it boosts my productivity.
I don't need to spend time on my folder to open the documents I need, no time to look at my Bookmarks in the web browser. With Workspace, I can open whatever I want, whenever I want in a second. All I need is gathered in one app!

As a freelance web designer who manages several sites and accounts from maintenance to content creation, it’s a serious time saver being able to minimize my clicks.
Workspaces is a beautiful, minimal app that gives me an organized one-click option for all those projects along with the apps and urls that correspond with each. Apptorium’s support is top-notch as well.

A dream tool that’s made by people for people, elegantly solving the annoying part of switching between projects, simple and genius. From now on, there’s no way out for your motivation, seriously.
