Raskin, the great-looking, powerful alternative to Mac OSX’s native Finder app, has just been updated with some new features that make it even more of a ‘must-try’. In fact, the Swiss developers are claiming it “Brings the iOS experience to the Mac” and we’re inclined to agree.
Well its not exactly the same as iOS but close enough to feel the same. If you’re a designer, photographer or anyone else who thinks ‘visually’, Raskin’s built for you. It is a quick, easy and joyful way to navigate stuff from your computer scrolling and zooming around.
In terms of usability, you can now drag and drop to any destination
and there’s autoscroll while you drag items. Appearance-wise, the ‘Surface’ of the app (its appearance) can be customised and it’s possible to hide selected files and folders if you see fit. In short, these tweaks have made a good product feel all the ‘complete’.
Raskin 1.2 is available to download now as a free trial and costs £34.95 for a single license.
