Quicksilver Or Steam Automatic App Switcher

( Apple andmisc andoriginals )

I know I’m not the only one with this problem – you’re playing Left 4 Dead 2 and suddenly you […]

You have to launch logic, or mainstage, or ableton, or digital performer, open a new project, setup a new patch, and then […]
