Looking for some feedback on a small desktop application I just soft-launched. The tool is named SwitchBlade, and it provides a quick way to access all your open windows on Windows. Basically, you press a configurable global hotkey, and a blade appears at the top of the screen, allowing you to quickly search the titles of open windows, select them, and switch to them. Think of it as a fast alternative to Alt-Tab. I view this as an additional tool to use alongside Alt-Tab, not a replacement.
This was a scratch-my-own-itch idea, so I’m interested to see if anyone else finds it useful. I don’t have a strong marketing plan, and I’m not sure one exists for this class of tool. Any ideas there would be helpful.
I’m hoping for feedback on:
- The website: I built this myself using Bulma as I am not a designer and didn’t want to invest in a contractor on such a small project.
- The product itself and any ideas you might have for it.
- Pricing/trial model. I struggled with this a lot but settled on 30-day trial/$19 one-time license fee. The tool is so very simple I have a hard time pricing it higher than this.
- Anything else you think I should hear.
Particularly interested in feedback from those who have launched successful desktop products, as this is my first attempt at monetizing an app like this.
The website is at https://www.switchbladeapp.com
Thanks in advance,
