Proxi 1.0 released
Griffin Technology today announced that Proxi, its shortcut software for Mac OS X, has graduated from beta status to version 1.0. Proxi features a graphical user interface that allows users to "teach" Mac OS X to perform assigned tasks. Users can perform complicated scripting tasks quickly and easily by connecting pre-built "blocks," called Triggers and Tasks, which can control other software and hardware. Proxi supports custom hotkey definitions as well as repeating tasks, can configure devices, and can monitor mail, iChat, and RSS feeds. Users can save Blueprints -- complete sets of instructions for Macs to perform assigned tasks -- that can be saved and shared with other users via the Proxi community, and the application features a built-in Blueprint Browser that is constantly updated with new Blueprints. Proxi 1.0 is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
