    Angry Who remembers BumpTop for Mac? Is there an alternative?

    3 years ago, Google acquired BumpTop and they replaced their site with this message to their users:


    Dear BumpTop fans,

    More than three years ago, we set out to completely change the way people use their desktops. We're very grateful for all your support over that time — not just financially but also through all the encouraging messages from people who found BumpTop inspiring, useful, and just downright fun.

    Today, we have a big announcement to make: we're excited to announce that we've been acquired by Google! This means that BumpTop (for both Windows and Mac) will no longer be available for sale. Additionally, no updates to the products are planned.

    For the first week of May 2010, we kept BumpTop Free available for download to give BumpTop fans one last chance to grab a copy. BumpTop is now no longer available for free download.

    Thanks again for all your support over the years. Despite our change in strategy, we remain as passionate as ever about helping shape the future of computing!

    Sincerely,
    The
    Bumps

    Since then, the app has died with no hints as to its revival or future plans for its use by Google. I had an entire workflow built around BumpTop's functionality, but eventually I had to uninstall it because its bugs were becoming more apparent as time went on. There have been zero updates to the site and the developers seem to have completely abandoned the project! I can't find a single reason as to why! What happened? What are they doing? Why completely kill off such a great app? Flip-through stacks of documents on the desktop, large preview icons of images and pdfs, one-click visual sorting... Personally, these features were a productivity life saver!

    With this said, does anyone know of any kind of alternative?
