Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time.

Path Finder – Mac OS X Finder on Steroids

Mac OS X’s Finder application (Explorer for you Windows folks) gets the job done, but I always felt that interfacing with it was somewhat cumbersome, most especially in folder navigation (with a deep folder hierarchy), drag & drop copying and being able to deal with version control repositories nicely.

Path Finder seems to be the answer to those gripes.

Multiple features abound, such as:

  • keyboard navigation
  • a “drop box” for copying things
  • multi-pane viewing options
  • Subversion repository support
  • easier file searching capabilities

That’s just scratching the surface. Definitely check out their website and the video screencast.

At $40, it seems like a steep price, but when you think about all that you are gaining, it really doesn’t seem that much. I’m going to give the trial version a run for awhile to see if this will be worth purchasing.

Has anyone else used this?

  1. Then again, it might be worth it to wait a bit. The next version of OS X, Snow Leopard, is supposed to completely revamp Finder, among other things.
