For Windows users who covet the easy way a Mac organizes and launches app, XWidget Software Studio brings you Xlaunchpad, which is based on the Mac OS X Lion Launchpad.
Xlaunchpad, once installed, will run unobtrusively in the background until it is activated. Set up couldn't be easier -- just drag and drop the apps onto the interface. As promised, the program will create a folder if you drag one icon onto another, which we found to be a nice time saver when grouping similar apps together. And, it even supports multiple desktops if you want to further organize your apps.
Xlaunchpad doesn't offer any other bells and whistles. It has one purpose -- organizing your apps exactly as you'd like -- and it does this well. Anyone who wants a little Mac-like functionality will appreciate this little freeware. We found no issues with the installation and uninstallation.
