IOSPIRIT is proud to announce the immediate availability of its latest creation: Spacious 1.0.

What is Spacious?

Spacious allows switching between OS X Lion spaces and fullscreen apps with every mouse. Via the Spacious Navigator that's shown when the mouse cursor is moved to the display borders. Or directly with many mice wheel.

Watch the demo video at the Spacious website to see it in action.

Why Spacious?

Imagine you're using an ordinary mouse with OS X Lion and you want to switch between spaces. You'll need to move your hand over to the keyboard, locate and press the right key combination - and move back to your mouse. If you need to switch often, chances are you'll soon find this highly annoying and a constant source of interruption in your workflow.

Spacious offers smart solutions to this and other space-related challenges.

Key Features

  • Switch to neighbouring spaces
    The Spacious Navigator appears when you move your mouse to your display’s borders and keep moving. Click on the Navigator to switch to the next or previous space.

  • Quick app switching and quitting
    Right-click on the Spacious Navigator to access recently used applications and Mission Control. Hover over an app's icon and a close button appears, allowing you to quit that app.

  • Mouse wheel switching
    If your mouse wheel can scroll left and right (often possible by tilting it), you can turn on an option in Spacious and henceforth use it to switch to the next and previous space instead.
