Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

photobucketMagic Formation takes the concept of a "handy application launcher" to an entirely new level. Draw a circle with your mouse to activate the Magic Formation: a series of icons, arranged in a circle, which correspond to applications you've selected to include. From there, clicking on the specific icon launches the app. It's as easy as that. I like the design of this application because it completely conceals the application launching menu until you need it. Unlike similar programs that attempt to recreate the best of OSX's menu bar, you don't accidentally fire off the Magic Formation if you move your mouse over a particular corner of your screen.
