think of that?'"

"I've seen a bizillion launchers,
and hate every single one. I've at last found one with which
I can be productive and I don't hate it, and it's Tilery. It's
small, simple, fast..."
The Tilery places a "tile" on your screen for each open application; clicking a tile brings its application to the front. In addition you can create tiles that will launch applications and open documents, folders, control panels, and more. (Did you ever wish that the Trash could float above your other windows? Now it can!)
The Tilery offers these great features:
The Tilery is an application, not an INIT or system extension, so you can start it up or quit from it at any time. (You will probably like to put an alias to it into your Startup Items folder, so it will launch automatically when you start your Mac.) Because it is not an extension, you'll have no worries about conflicts.
What about Mac OS X?
We regret that The Tilery is not available for Mac OS X, and we have no plans to produce a Mac OS X version. We recommend DragThing Mac OS X users; a discount is available to registered owners of The Tilery.
Version 4.2.1 now available. This release fixes version 4.2's incompatibility with Mac OS 8.1 and earlier. Version 4.2 fixed an obscure system bug that caused Finder problems when Virtual Memory was turned off and The Tilery's "Finder to Front at Startup" option was turned on. It also adds the new "Path" item to tile menus, giving easy access to parent folders and their contents.
Latest Version: The Tilery 4.2.1
Requires: System 7.0 or later. 68020 or better, including Power Macintosh. Fully compatible with Mac OS 8 and 9. Not Mac OS X compatible.
Recommended: System 7.5 or later, including MacOS 8 and MacOS 9.
