SwitchGlass app brings a customizable application switcher for macOS

Following the publication of the Before and the management Centre of the application window, last month, John Siracusa, is back with another Mac app today. SwitchGlass for macOS provides a dedicated app switcher with a variety of different customization options for mac os.

Syracuse has announced the new SwitchGlass application on his blog this evening. It is described as a floating application switcher, which displays an icon for each of the applications that you have running on your Mac. Syracuse describes some of the different things that you can do here:

SwitchGlass is also highly customizable, with support for changing the appearance of the application switcher as well as the functionality. For example, you can change the location of where the app switcher is located, as well as of its orientation and positioning. You can also adjust the settings of what happens when you click on the icons of the applications or shift-click.

A bit like Front and Center, Syracuse, developed SwitchGlass to replace the functionality provided by the DragThing application, which was left behind when macOS Catalina dropped support for 32-bit applications. You may be wondering why you need SwitchGlass when macOS has the Dock built in. Syracuse says:

You can download SwitchGlass now on the Mac App Store for $4.99, and details on the Syracuse blog.

  • Click on an application icon to bring all the application’s windows to the front.
  • Hold down the Shift key while clicking on an application icon to bring a single window application to the front.
  • Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the icon of an application to activate a contextual menu in which you can show or hide an application.
  • Drag one or more files on the icon of an application to open files with the app.
  • Hold down the Command key while clicking on an application icon to reveal the application in the Finder.

SwitchGlass is for people who want a ui element that is entirely dedicated to the application of switching, with a customizable appearance, and a location for each display. When used alongside the Dock, SwitchGlass provides a second target for the mouse app switching. With the Dock hidden, it provides an application switching the interface without cluttering up the other functions of the docking station.
