SmartFlip is a simple, intuitive and reliable replacement for the Flip3D function in Windows Vista.
We all know that when using the Windows Flip 3D feature, we can quickly preview all the open windows (for example files, folders, applications, documents etc.) without having to click the taskbar or navigate to the main installation folder to access the shortcuts.
By pressing the Windows key + TAB or CTRL + Logo key + TAB key combination, you are able to display all the open files and apps in a stack.
But, for Win8 users, they can't preview those windows in such a manner anymore. Only if they press ALT + TAB key combination they can easily cycle through the open apps by continuously pressing the TAB key.
That's why SmartFlip makes itself conspicuous. By pressing the default key combination, which is F9, you are able to display all the open windows in a simple, yet helpful manner.
Simply point the mouse to the desired file and select it. The chosen app will be centered to your screen, while the other ones will hide.
When the program starts, it will be automatically redirected to the system tray. Afterwards, you have the possibility to change settings like background opacity and the space of the screen that will be used by the open windows.
SmartFlip also enables you to add transition effects, so each time you trigger the default key (which can be changed as you prefer from the Triggers section) you can view all the windows in a personalized manner.
What's more, the utility also enables you to view the files from the same application, so each time you want to access, for example, the Word app, simply click the F10 button. This feature comes in handy for a better windows management and organization.
Even though the voice control is not currently implemented in the application, SmartFlip still makes the best out of it. It helps you to easily display the open files and documents in a stack and access the ones you are interested in.
