Review of Default Folder X!

Default Folder X is part of the MacUpdate 10 applications bundle (you can get more info or buy the bundle here from MacUpdate).

Default Folder X lets you access recent, favorite and open folders right from the toolbar of Default Folder X that can be accessed through the Open and Save dialog of any application. It also comes with a Dock icon and a menu bar icon. Another feature that I really enjoy about Default Folder X is that it is possible to add Spotlight comments while saving the file, making it more easily searchable. What I instantly didn't like is the Dock icon that also shows up in the "Command - Tab" dialog. You can easily disable that Dock icon in the preferences (in System Preferences, under Default Folder X). Here is how:

1. Click on settings in the Default Folder X preferences.
2. Uncheck the checkbox next to "In the Dock" under the "Menus" tab.

Overall, I think it is an amazing application that runs quietly in the background and that can make the process of opening or saving files much more efficient. Easily adding Spotlight comments will also enhance the quality of Spotlight results.

You can get Default Folder X in the MacUpdate bundle here.
