What is Synapse?
Synapse is a semantic launcher written in Vala that you can use to start applications as well as find and access relevant documents and files by making use of the Zeitgeist engine.
Synapse hasn't been updated in over a year and forked versions haven't been updated in a while either. See discussion https://answers.launchpad.net/synapse-project/ question/665416
Comments and Reviews
Synapse works perfectly. It is the launcher I like the most. Nevermind it has not been updated in a while: it's simplicity ensures functionality remains unhindered.
I was a long time Kupfer user, then all of a sudden it stopped to work on multiple platforms, so I had the look for an alternative.
Even while I was still using Kupfer I tried a lot of alternatives including Gnome-Do, Launchy and other similar software, none of which could suitably replace and even greatly surpass Kupfer.
Synapse is by far the best keystroke launcher I came across. It has unparalelled features, like locate any file, launch any website, has great design and is very easy on resources. Simple, clean and robust.
I was looking for something to replace gnome-do, and let me tell you synapse has filled that space and more. I've had no issues with it at all, did I mention it is FAST! The interface is very simple and clean, just what I was looking for in a launcher.
