Ever hear about Launchbar but not sure what it is? Check out Screencasts Online overview of Launchbar.
Launchbar is in the same vein as Quicksilver, and with Quicksilver development at a stall it’s become a very attractive option. I’ve been using Launchbar 5 for about a year. I feel hobbled when using a Mac without it. With a few keystrokes you can:
- Play music in iTunes
- Open and move files on your Mac
- Move files around on your Mac
- Use just about any search engine with search templates
- Email files to an entry in your Address Book
Screencasts Online go over some of the basics of Launchbar. If it’s up your alley they also offer a discount code at the end of the episode.
There are some things that I wish Launchbar has that Quicksilver has (namely the “comma trick”), but I’m hoping that in Part II of this series they cover some things I may have overlooked.
