10.7: Launchpad - Organize by folders
Authored by: firedune on Dec 20, '11 03:38:20PM

In the past (on Snow Leopard) I used Overflow as an app launcher.
I have some "selected" apps in different Overflow "areas" to get to any of those apps I used a keyboard command to activate Overflow (also clickable menu item) and a maximum of two clicks (one to change area if not the default one) to access the added apps

the problem was that if an app was not added to any of those areas then I have to search them with spotlight or browse the apps folder.

So there was a very delicate process of choosing of which apps where needed to have an easy access, but not used very frequent to dedicate a dock space.

Now with Lauchpad, I use a gesture to access any "semi-special apps" (on launchpad first page), and two clicks for "any other app" (either second page or in a container).
Love it.
