Overflow for Mac offers you a convenient interface for categorizing and launching your favorite apps. This shareware app can be summoned either by clicking on its icon or via a customizable keyboard shortcut. Unlike OS X's Launchpad, it allows you to open media files, and also to have custom layouts and categories for organizing your data.

Overflow for Mac's main interface consists of a grid of icons ready to be tapped and a list of categories. Adding new categories or items can be done either in editing mode or via an Option-click; While in edit mode, you can also resize the launcher to reveal more icon placeholders. In the software's preferences you can set icon size and spacing, change the launcher color and transparency, assign a global keyboard shortcut, and toggle between a dock and a menu bar icon. A nice touch to the dock icon is that it changes in accordance with the color you've selected for the launcher. If you use a keyboard shortcut to summon the launcher, you can have it appear behind the cursor; If you use the dock icon, you can set it to behave like a stack.

Compared to OS X's Launchpad, Overflow for Mac impresses with its ability to pin not only apps but also media files. If you work with files directly, you might prefer a tool like this one over OS X's default launcher. When used with an easy keyboard shortcut, this third-party launcher becomes quite convenient.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Overflow for Mac 2.5.9.
