Me, I like a tidy Desktop. Sure I save things to the Desktop (like the images I use for these posts), but once a week or so I clean house, deleting almost everything from my Desktop. Now my buddies AJ and Shane, well they have Desktops that make my eyes bleed. Files and folders everywhere. I’m seriously thinking I should buy them each a copy of DesktopShelves. It’s not going to be a big deal either because, it’s our first $5 Friday!
DesktopShelves does one simple thing. You create “shelves” (they look like shelves you have on your wall) to hold files and folders on your Desktop. It’s a virtual thing, really, everything is still in a folder in the Finder, but it looks better. Check out the movie after the jump.
First take a couple minutes and watch this video:
See, it’s cool, it’s subtle, it’s elegant. Shelves on your Desktop. A virtual, but interactive, representation of the files you want to have access to quickly. At $5, I don’t think you can lose. Hmm, I might even pick it up myself…
Update: As a side note I did wind up buying this for myself and it is pretty darn cool!
