When app launcher proved to be a big hit on iOS, Apple introduced “Launchpad”–the iOS-style app launcher—with OS X Lion. And guess what, most folks (including me) found the new add-on pretty adorable. To make the most of this neat feature, I ensure that Launchpad is added to my Mac Dock.
So, whenever I want to navigate through all the installed apps to spot the unwanted ones or quickly jump onto specific ones, I don’t have to hop around. If you aren’t using Launchpad much or want to include it in the Dock, let me help you get started!
