In the dynamic world of a Mac user, we often find ourselves switching between different apps for various tasks. For instance, when diving into reading and research, it's common to hop between a browser, a note-taking, a reading management app, and an ebook reader app. This pattern is similar in other activities too, like multi-media editing or coding, where specific sets of apps are in constant use.

To address this, zap Spaces offers a solution to organize the apps you frequently use together. It enables you to create tailored workspaces for each of your activities.
