Zielona Gora, Poland - Independent development team Apptorium is today proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Workspaces 2.0, an important update to their desktop workspace management app for macOS. Workspaces organizes and saves links to resources that are grouped into projects (workspaces). Users can designate which resources can be started up and accessed with a single click. The update brings numerous new features to the app, including powerful search commands, plugins, a redesigned UI, and much more.
Workspaces allows users to create projects containing folders, files, apps, and other resources, all of which can be launched with a click of the mouse. This allows users to start an entire workspace for any project, eliminating the need for remembering and starting each app or opening each resource on a one-by-one basis. Users can also see all of the resources for a particular job and open the app, folder, or other resource on its own.
"Do you have, like me, multiple projects that you're juggling on a regular basis? When it came time to work on each project, I always found that I would open up a set of apps, folders, and other resources but I'd always forget one or two things," shares Apptorium CEO Marcin Krzywonos. "By using Workspaces 2.0 I'm sure that nothing is missing. I set up a workspace for each project. And with just a few clicks of the mouse, the proper apps and other resources will be open and ready when I need them."
Workspaces is a must-have for designers, programmers, project managers, students and teachers. Really, anyone that juggles multiple projects or jobs will find Workspaces to be an invaluable addition to their Mac application arsenal. This is especially true in 2020, when more people than ever are working from home.
Editing a workspace (project) is simplicity in itself. Click the "Edit" button and the editor window appears. Drag and drop your resources or click the "+"" button to add them manually. Users can choose which applications will be run when they click START Button.
Workspaces 2 adds a multiple new features to the already useful app, including:
- Clean and fresh redesigned user interface
- Search for Workspaces and Resources
- Share Extension
- Set workspace icons
- Separators in resources lists
- Delay resource starting
- Set resources launched on finish
- Notes function
- Templates (for creating similar workspaces quickly)
- Set custom apps for Terminal and File Manager
- Type commands in search window
- Disable selected resources, so they're hidden in the workspace
- Add resources by dropping them on the menubar icon
- Run resources using CMD+Num
- Create resources directly from the Pasteboard
- Quick switch between workspaces with a long-press of the Back Button
- Sort workspaces lists
Workspaces also allows users to designate which application uses a resource. For example, users can open a website in the browser of their choice. Even if Safari is the default Mac browser, websites can be opened automatically using Chrome, Firefox, or any other browser. For another example, users can set Terminal to start up in a designated folder, saving time usually spent typing a path to switch to the needed directory.
In addition to the above new features, Workspaces still offers the same great features it always has:
- Launch resources quickly
- Launch multiple resources with a single click
- Workspaces can be archived and restored in the future when needed
- Set custom apps to open files and folders
- Launch emails (Mail app only)
- Keyboard shortcuts
- Custom URL support (for example: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org or sms:00000000,etc)
- Open Terminal in a selected folder
"Workspaces 2.0 builds on the already useful foundation of previous versions of Workspaces, adding great new features that I know users will love," continued Marcin. "I can't wait to see the new ways Mac owners make use of the app, and I look forward to hearing their ideas for future improvements."
