Radian is a simple radial application launcher. The interface is triggered by a continuous right-click and is divided into four slices. Each slice can be configured differently, currently supporting the following modes:
- Custom - the slice will contain shortcuts manually dragged from existing shortcuts or files (from the Quick-Launch, Desktop, Start-Menu, Folder, etc...)
- Quick Launch - shortcuts from Windows' Quick-Launch
- Desktop - shortcut from Windows' Desktop
- Recent Docs - recently opened documents
The right-click trigger resembles the right-click mechanism on many hand-held devices, allowing you to access the menu quickly without needing to scroll to a certain area on your screen. The menu can be loaded by right-clicking and holding anywhere on the screen. A special effort was made to make sure this feature doesn't get in the way of normal right-click usage.
Radian was created as a personal project to answer my personal requirements. The project is currently in it's early beta stages, and as it evolves I'll be adding more features and fixing different issues that arise.
