"Works as advertised."

Keeps track of recently opened files, folders, and applications used. Recalls more than the "Recent Items" under the Apple menu. Overall, worth the money.


Erases list of opened files after a restart.

Shallow Learning Curve / fine feature set


More GUI customization would be helpful.

"A simple but very useful application"

Took me just several minutes to decide I should purchase Blast...which I did.
Blast is very useful and it saves me so much time! Instead of searching in finder for files I lost, I just locate them from the menu. It also has a sticky sidebar that allows to save my favorite folders and now I can drag a downloaded application directly to Applications folder.

The application is very easy to use and the developers are very responsive to new features requests and support.
I asked them to include several features, like better handling of excluded files and they told me they are already working on it and it will be released soon.
