Some of the things Trickster can do:
– Drag and drop files from Trickster to Finder or any other application like you’d do from Finder.


– Open files and applications from Trickster, preview them or reveal in Finder.
– Preset filters to only display images, audio files, videos, documents, applications, folders and specific locations.
– Create your own custom filters based on location, file types, Finder tags (on OS X 10.9) or string matching.
– Track only relevant files and ignore all the rest.
– Favorites "sticky" bar gives you fast access to your most frequently used files, folders and applications. Drop files on a ‘favorite’ folder to move it there or drop on a ‘favorite’ application to open it with that specific app.


– Add files to any notebook on Evernote

– Retina ready

Trickster is 100% keyboard-friendly. For ultimate productivity and speed, you can use it entirely without mouse or combine mouse with keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys.

* NEW: Showing folders in "All Files" is now optional (preference to turn it off is available)
* FIX: Removed "stale bookmark" dialog because some users experienced a stuck Trickster.
* FIX: Disappearing text after editing text in filters and in Tracking Settings
* Clarify in UI and user manual that watched folders include subfolders too
