    I generally use my applications in fullscreen mode in Mavericks and am switching with arrow keys between them. But sometimes I have too many spaces to find the right application I want to switch to in a short time. Is there any app I can use to switch fast to the desired space? Maybe something which shows the applications icon in the centre of the switched space for a short time so I can instantly know which space I've switched to. I hope I could describe my problem in an understandable language. :D

    If you're really talking about Spaces and not Mission Control (many people refer to the latter as the former) then why not just hit F8 (or whatever key you've designated) and get a look at where you need to go?

    With 10+ fullscreen apps it is not really fast enough switching to the desired space.

    I use a hot corner in the top left of my screen and have 6 desktop spaces, so it's easy to just place the cursor in the corner and quickly move right to select the one I want. This may not be what you're looking for, but it works quickly enough for me and I'm able to have an overview of all spaces at a glance. I guess it's like Mission Control, but I never use that icon on the Dock. Seems like a pain to click it at the bottom then click at the top.

    The hot corner is my current solution, too. Plus using the keyboard to switch between spaces forth and back and stop at the application I was looking for. I also gave TotalSpaces 2 a try but it sometimes crashes. I am missing the old Spaces from SL. :(

    I did. It crashes very often, at least on my machine.
