Projects / Apwal


Apwal is a simple application launcher. It displays icons around the mouse with transparency when it is called. The position of the icons is relative to the current position of the cursor. An easy to use editor with an icon selector allows users to configure it. Filters are available to simplify the search of icons (by extension, resolution, recursive path search, name filter with wildcard pattern, etc.).
