3D desktop allows stacks, pinning files to walls
BumpTop has released its self-named 3D-desktop utility for Mac OS X. It presents a user's Mac desktop in a three-dimensional display, with four walls -- left, right, front and back -- and a floor, which is essentially the standard Finder desktop. It supports features such as Exposé Quick Look, while enabling multi-touch gestures for trackpad-equipped MacBooks and MacBook Pros.
The desktop allows stacking of files in a 3D presentation, allowing users to clean up or pile items and view the iyrmd independently in a grid mode. BumpTop's walls also enable files to be pinned for quick access or easy viewing, while a find-as-you-type search engine is also integrated. The desktop floor and walls can be customized with multiple images, or an overall theme can be applied.
BumpTop requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. The new desktop software is free to download in its standard version, while the Pro edition adds the find-as-you-type search engine and multi-touch gesture support for $30.
