Bevy is a unique application launcher that automatically discovers your applications and neatly organizes their icons into visual groups based on the folders containing the applications.
Bevy searches a specified list of folders and creates a group for each folder.

It comes with a set of pre-defined standard locations, but you can add and delete folders to match your own personal way of organizing apps within the Finder.

For the ultimate convenience, Bevy can be revealed and hidden numerous ways...
  • By pressing a global hot key
  • By clicking a status menu icon
  • By clicking its dock icon
  • By mousing over a corner or edge hot spot

To help you quickly find the application you're looking for, tapping a key will highlight applications with matching names. Or, you can drag-and-drop a file onto Bevy's window to highlight just those compatible applications.

In addition, you can hide rarely used apps and un-installers so they won't clutter your window.

Please Note:
If you purchase through the App Store, you will only receive updates via the App Store. If you download and purchase through the app's integrated store, you will receive updates through the app's built-in Sparkle update mechanism.

Apple did not provide a mechanism for us to upgrade existing customers to the App Store version, so we will provide the app through both purchasing mechanisms to continue supporting existing customers.

Note that some features of the App Store version may be restricted by sandboxing rules, so the versions may not be identical. Also, please note that release dates for updates may be different for each version due to the review process required by the App Store.
