This version doesn't contain any new features, but greatly improves how click-to-warp and the activation delay interact with each other. Using the two together should feel much more natural now.

  • Improved click-to-warp behavior to work better with the activation delay
  • Increased borders around hot corners to prevent accidental activation
  • Added traditional Chinese localization (thanks to Jack M. H. Lin)

This is awesome, but the big show stopper is not being able to have 1 row and more than 4 columns. I'll sure donate if this can be implemented soon. Thank you from an old Virtue user 8)

The warp works on screensaver unlock screen (with enter password field), but it shouldn't.

Could not find a better place to make a feature request, so figured I would do it here. Is there any chance you could add switching spaces from the scrolling of the mouse wheel when the mouse pointer is hovering over the desktop (In other words whenever its not over any active window)?

I installed this program on my Intel iMac and had been experiencing MAJOR issues since then. After I uninstalled the software my machine was still messed up. The IT department has concluded that my video card is shot. They are sending my machine back to Apple. Though I love Chax and think this program is really cool, I would highly recommend NOT installing this software.

disappointed at 2008-06-19 10:43:05 -0400

That was WARP, not Chax.

Walter Ferlazzo at 2008-06-30 11:58:27 -0400

@ chax: I think it's highly improbable that Warp could ever damage a video card. Your IT department should invent a more plausible story.

Walter Ferlazzo at 2008-06-30 11:59:19 -0400

ehm.. Obviously I was answering to disappointed, not chax

Nice app. If you could add support for having different desktop backgrounds in each space that would be awesome!

Jay from nz at 2008-06-30 16:55:12 -0400

Congratulations on making a truly useful app! You guys are great. As soon as I started using it I thought of a feature that would make it even better, and shouldn't be hard to implement: a hotkey that brings up the click-to-warp previews for all adjacent spaces. That is, I hit a hot key and the click-to-warp previews show for the spaces to the left, right, top and bottom. This would actually be faster than bringing the spaces overview and clicking and then clicking on the desired space. Would definitely fit into mine, and others workflow and we could quickly see the closest four spaces and click on the desired one. Also, an option to change the size of spaces previews would be great. Anyway, perhaps something to think about. Let me know if there is any way to donate a small amount to you guys (I'm currently a student with a small family so can't donate much, but would definitely like to donate something). Jay.

I installed Warp on my aluminum iMac yesterday and was very impressed. But I just installed it on my Macbook and it doesn't want to work - it installed, but the Enable Warp check button won't stay selected and nothing happens when I run the cursor to the screen edges. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

KENKEN at 2008-07-01 03:03:03 -0400

Wow! I use Spaces alot for work - and i have really missed the feature Warp provide! I will donate for sure!! Good work! :) Love from Norway!

egolomik at 2008-07-01 13:44:15 -0400

Great work! Really makes Spaces alot more useful! One little feature request: I've set the delay to zero in the prefs which makes for a nice "gesture"-like desktop switching experience -- provided a modifier key is set (command in my case). It would, however, be even nicer if I could set a mouse button (e.g. the "sqeeze" on a mighty mouse) as the modifier key so i wouldn't have to touch the keyboard. Keep up the great work!

Chris at 2008-07-03 19:40:33 -0400

I love it! To make it more useful, I'd like to see full support of multi-monitor setups. When using "Click screen edge to Warp" it should show an image of all monitors instead of just the primary. Otherwise, a great app! -Chris

Andrew at 2008-07-04 11:08:16 -0400

enjoying Warp, but have one suggestion - I am using Spaces with a 4-way layout - Warp does not allow me to move diagonally (e.g. bottom left -> top right), it only wraps around to the space above/below or left/right - it would be great if by mousing to the corner area (some tolerance required here to allow triggering Warp but not Exposé) one could move diagonally. just a thought…

Erik at 2008-08-02 16:37:53 -0400

I love Warp. Lets make it even better. New Feature: Move mouse pointer to any edge of the screen. Scroll in the direction of the desired Space (touchpads scroll by using two fingers and swiping). Easy as a piece of cake flavored pie! Seems like this feature will result in very little accidental space switching because when do you ever scroll when on the edge of the screen? It also would result in faster space switching (as long as the mouse stays on the edge after switching spaces) when trying to go to a space more than one space away or searching for the desired space. Diagonal space switching would be nice too. For touchpads, a nice feature would be to place 3 fingers on the touchpad and swipe to the desired space. But I think that gesture may be reserved for something else. I don't know. But if I had to choose from any of the features I have suggested, it would be the first one. What do you think?

MIke at 2008-08-10 07:13:05 -0400

Been using Warp since the first release and have supported you by recommending the package and donating. I find it very useful and couldn't live without it. One minor enhancement I'd like to see is a hot key to activate/deactivate Warp's behavior. When I use iPhoto or Aperture and am editing photos, sometimes I get very close to the edges which causes the next workspace to flip on me. When this happens, Aperture and iPhoto leave edit mode when editing in full screen. So, before I go into either application, I disable Warp in the control panel. It would be nice to have a shortcut for this rather than entering the control panel twice, once to activate and once to disable. I still wouldn't give it up for lack of this feature, but the enhancement I think would also be useful to others by speeding up their workflows. Thanks, Mike

How about adding a pager to Warp? Spaces doesn't have floating pager like Virtual and Desktop Manager do, and Warp seems to be half-way there with the miniature previews.

Jai at 2008-10-16 02:16:02 -0400

@tommy I agree with you, support for different colour desktop is just the thing. Also, I request you implement this: move the mouse/pointer to the top of the screen into an area of white space free of menus and and icons and click to have Warp invoke 'Time-Warp!' - also known as Time Machine! Just the perfect most logical place to jump off into Time Machine!!! Not some do-hickie menu sitting next to the Spaces menu... It's a no-brainer! Just do it!

Max at 2008-10-30 00:11:32 -0400

Would it be possible to implement a warp option for when, for example, you have four spaces open and you're in the bottom-right space, to warp by moving the mouse through the RIGHT side of the screen to take you up to the top-left space? Similar to the way the keyboard commands for switching spaces work. Thank you for making Warp, it's awesome!

Max at 2008-10-30 02:12:35 -0400

Okay, so I just realized that the "Wrap around" does what I asked for above, but it takes you around to the other side, rather than diagonally. So perhaps the direction of the wrap around could be an option? What WOULD be really awesome is if when using warp without modifiers there was some kind of key/modifier that we could hold to disable warp on the side of your screen that your dock is on, or disable it in general for those specific times when you need to access something very close to the edge of your screen, so that we can bring the mouse down to the bottom of the screen to get a hiding dock to pop up without it switching spaces. I realize you can put a delay, but that only marginally helps. It really is pretty nice to not have to hold a modifier or click to switch, but to get to the dock or something really close to the edge is the only catch.

Max at 2008-10-30 02:14:22 -0400

(I know you can disable it on the side your dock/menu bar are on, but that's not really ideal for most of the time one has to navigate around)

Jai at 2008-11-25 22:59:43 -0500

I have been playing around with Warp and Hyperspaces. The two go great together. With Hyperspaces, I have set different colurs for my desktops (WorkSpace, ComsSpace and GameSpace) while I flip between them using Warp (and its click at the edge option activated). This combination is just perfect!

gg at 2009-01-23 09:02:36 -0500

just as Jai, ive been using the combo as well and its awesome! warp is exactly what i had been waiting for, before i just thought spaces was mediocre, now i cant live without it! ........ that being said im not sure if this is where i should post a bug or not but anyway here it is: it used to work all the time after a, logout, reboot, sleep and wakeup... but now (possibly after the newest 10.5.6 update) the "Enable Warp" check box will not stay checked. basically everytime the machine wakes up, reboots, or when i log back in, i must go into the settings and re select that box. its fine, whenever i do, it works as it should but maybe you can look into that and see why it looses that setting? and @disappointed, theres NO way software jacked up your video card, keep the machine loose your "IT" people.
