Hands On: Alfred 2 (OS X)

01/25, 9:02am

Powerful, hugely customisable application launcher for Mac

It's only right and proper to review Alfred 2 in a piece called Hands On because that's its entire point: with this installed you can do just about anything on your Mac without ever once taking your fingers off the keyboard. As much as the mouse and the trackpad changed the world, every time you use them you are losing time. Yes, it's probably about a picosecond but that's enough: your concentration moves to where-is-the-mouse and then where-is-the-cursor before it can get back to the work at hand. With Alfred 2, your fingers will remember keyboard shortcuts like muscle memory and you will feel and you will be hugely faster at everything.
