FinderPop provides you with a more versatile and controllable desktop with its integrative interface that overhauls the default Finder greatly. Your productivity and overall Mac experience should improve while using this program, but it is not a must-have application for all individuals.


Clean, customizable interface: FinderPop blends comfortably with the standard Mac Finder, so using this application is very easy as most tasks will come naturally to you. We believe those who enjoy personalized layouts will be pleased with FinderPop's various appearance controls such as the Custom Icons and font sizes.

Efficient features: You are bound to work faster with FinderPop for Mac because it provides quick document handling tools and shortcuts. The Control+Click tool is one of the best features of this program because it allows you to see inside folders and preview files without opening said folder.


Not for everyone: FinderPop will enhance every person's experience with their Mac; however, this application is geared more toward those who regularly use a mouse.

Mixed support: Aside from emailing the creators of this program, there are not many support options available. We visited the FinderPop forums to see that the majority of threads had been inactive for at least a month and also noticed that answers for past questions were never provided.

Bottom Line

We are impressed by FinderPop for Mac because of its high-quality toolkit and overall useful functionality. No other program comes close to providing the services that FinderPop has to offer, and this program is in a league of its own. FinderPop for Mac is definitely your best choice if looking to increase your workflow speed and output.

Developer's Description

FinderPop is a Preference pane that extends OS X's contextual menus using a FinderPop Items folder much as the Apple Menu Items folder used to do for the Apple menu. It has other features too:

  • Control-free popup in the Finder - handy for those with one-button mice.
  • a launcher that takes up zero screen real estate, merely a click on any blank area of menubar away,
  • a handy filesystem browser, allowing quick and easy access to files and disks in the Finder,
  • a Processes menu (Command-click a blank menubar area.) fast access to 'Where's that dratted file I had on the Desktop?' (Shift-Click a blank menubar area.)
  • a comprehensive collection of vaguely beer-related aphorisms in the Aboutbox.
