Alfred App

My first post in a long time is bound to be a good one. For that reason, I decided to post about Alfred. This is by far my most used application. Simply put, it is a local and web search tool. For the basic user, it lets you launch your applications, or directly search on the search engine of your choice, including websites like IMDB, Amazon, and YouTube.

It can also perform basic power functions of a Mac, e.g. you can log out or lock your computer by simply bringing up the Alfred window and typing in ‘log out‘ or ‘lock‘. Alfred is available for free, with a purchasable Powerpack, providing additional features including iTunes navigation and theme implementation.

If I had to pick one third party application for my Mac, this would be it.
