Leave it to Apple to take a perfectly useful feature within Mac OS X and totally butcher it up in later releases. Such is the case with Spaces, a grid-like system that let you assign applications and windows to virtual desktops. With Spaces, you could easily assign applications to specific virtual desktops and drag windows and apps between them. In Leopard and Snow Leopard, this feature was beautifully implemented.
Then came Lion and Mountain Lion.
Gone was the working implementation of Spaces as we all used to know and love. In its place, Apple gave us “Mission Control”, an abomination of a utility that serves to bedazzle users with its useless eye candy.
If you long for the “old” working functionality of Spaces (as implemented in Leopard and Snow Leopard), you are not alone.
…and that’s where BinaryAge comes in – giving us the “Spaces for the Rest of Us” – in the form of TotalSpaces ($15).
So… is TotalSpaces worth the money? Read on to find out!
