Microsoft couple of days ago announced its upcoming “Sets” features for Windows 10 users by allowing them to group apps into sets of tabs. The app is currently under works and is yet to be made available for Windows 10 users.
However two weeks ago Stardock announced its new Groupy app which brings similar features to the Sets. The app works on similar lines to a web browser by splitting separate windows for different groups of pages.
The upcoming Sets feature only works with UWP apps on Windows 10 and allow you to make groups of UWP apps. But on the other hand Groupy works with Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 and lets you group all apps and not only Windows 10 apps.
The Groupy app is available as a standalone product starting starting December 12 for a price of $9.99.
Below are some of the key features of the Groupy app:
- Drag and drop applications together to group them under a common tabbed interface
- Organize multiple applications and documents together for convenient access
- Group related tabs together for optimal workflow
- Manage tabs in quick and natural ways with the browser-like interface
- Add new tabs to existing groups quickly and easily
- Mouseover tabs to preview the window contents
- Copy files between Explorer tabs. Drag files to the target tab, pause to switch, and then into the target window.
