“Since the debut of the classic Mac OS System 1.0 in 1984, the Finder has been an indispensable hub of the graphical user interface experience,” J.R. Bookwalter writes for Macworld. “Despite many improvements over the year — most radically with OS X in 2001 — the core functionality of Apple’s Finder remains largely the same, despite efforts to improve upon the experience even today.”
“Commander One is a Mac application written entirely using Apple’s new Swift programming language that provides an alternative to the Finder,” Bookwalter writes. “The main window is split into dual panes that can be used to act upon files and folders in multiple locations at once… The free version works with local and network drives for search, preview, and other file operations, including the ability to rename files during copy and move. (Try that with the Finder and let me know how it works out for you.)”

MacDailyNews Take: Sometimes we get in the mood for a Finder replacement, but they never seem to stick. We’re looking forward to giving Commander One a try. If you’re already using this Finder replacement, how do you like it?
