Conjure - Check it out!
Conjure is a very interesting app. Here you have a virtual pasteboard on your desktop that you can add text or links to any app or folder, graphics or even movies (or screen shots from your iSight).
It's kind of like a 'roll your own' desktop and launcher.
Neat! Maybe a good app for kids learning a computer or even just a way to keep track of various things during your time on the computer.
The app is still a bit rough around the edges, and people trying this out should keep this in mind. I would also think that the price ($35.00) might be a bit steep for now.
If Conjure could be set to your desktop background - or even pop up as a screen saver - that would add some functionality.
I also wondered whether this interface would be great on a mobile phone or even a PDA (or the new OSX iPods?).
I would encourage anyone interested to give this app a try and email the developer with your feedback. He is very responsive to questions and suggestions.
