MacDesktop for Mac

MacDesktop for Mac is a widget that allows users to quickly locate additional programs within a number of common categories. With its drop-down menus and search feature, the program returns appropriate applications quickly, along with the download links for easy installation.

MacDesktop for Mac installs into the widget area, and can be started by adding it to the active Dashboard. The main window is fairly sizable for the Dashboard, but ultimately the space is needed to display appropriate program descriptions. Next to a well-designed application logo, a search bar allows for easy location of widgets by keywords or descriptions. Just below this, four drop-down menus separate the widgets into categories such as those for the desktop, tips, applications, and the dashboard, itself. Clicking on each of these brings up subcategories, further narrowing the returned programs, making finding useful items much easier. For example, the desktop area contains additional subdivisions for fonts, screensavers, icons, and wallpapers. Once selected, the main window below the drop-downs displays the list of programs. Each contains information about the functions, and includes screenshots, as well as instructions. Clicking on the application name brings the user to the download Web page, making installation easy. Browsing each category returned a number of useful applications, and users should have no difficulty finding a program to suit almost any need.

MacDesktop for Mac performs well and makes it very easy to find and install other useful applications. It's recommended for anyone who wants a centralized program to locate other applications across a number of categories.
