Launcher speeds up the way you work on your Mac!
*** Application Launcher ***
There are several ways to launch applications.
You can simply start typing the application name in the search string and you’ll immediately get the list of apps displayed in alphabetical order.
You can use abbreviations, for example, “qtp” for QuickTime Player, “ab” for the Address Book, “rml” for Remind Me Later.
Finally you can manually assign a handy command to specific app to launch it.
*** File Browser with QuickLook option ***
The built-in File Browser provides a fast and easy way to navigate through your folders and files.
Start query with / or ~ to browse your Mac, and pick files/folders to open, preview in QuickLook, and reveal in Finder.
*** Web Searches ***
Simply send queries to search engines right from the Launcher. All you need is to choose your favourite among the dozens of search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, eBay, Youtube, and Wikipedia and assign them to short or even one-letter commands, for example, "g" - for Google, "e" - for eBay, "w" - for Wikipedia.
The next time you need information enter the command and the search query with a space and Launcher will open your default browser with search results. For example, “e apples” will lead you to an eBay page with the results for “apples”.
*** Commands ***
Launcher will help you to simplify most common everyday actions like Mute, Play/Pause, Restart, Shutdown and others.
*** Dictionary ***
Launcher can be used as a superfast dictionary.
Look up word definitions, choose most suitable meanings and copy them for further use right from the app.
*** Fast Access to Files, Folders & URLs ***
Launcher is a flexible replacement for aliases. You can open certain files and folders with simple commands or abbreviations.
URLs can be opened the same way to make your favorite websites easier to reach.
*** Scripts ***
You can execute shell commands without the Terminal.app.
Just assign a shell command, for example, “/usr/bin/say $” to a word of command like “say”. After that Launcher will pronounce anything you enter in query after alias “say”.
*** Advanced Calculator ***
Launcher contains a built-in multi-precision calculator that allows you to perform simple and complex calculations.
Enter any expression, e.g., “1/4+1/2”, or “pi”, or “sqr4761” to see the result and copy it for further use in other documents and calculations.
*** Actions for search results ***
After the search is completed, Launcher will offer you some actions to perform:
- Reveal in Finder;
- Copy Path.
- Startup issues fix
- Calculator fixes
Most Helpful Reviews
Simple and nifty - Really good app! It has an incredibly pleasant and easy-to-use interface and so many cool features - even a dictionary! It works like it should and I'm still discovering all that it can do!
What the heck? - This was an excellent paid launcher at one point at in time. I bought it as did others. Nulana has now turned it into a free demo that advertises their other products. Those of us who paid money for a professional commercial app without ads are just out of luck. If you need a great launcher and don't mind a constant flow of ads on your computer, this is your app. But think twice before you give this company your money. New version still has ads. They got my money, but they've lost a loyal customer.

Needs to be updated. - Get a notification that is not optimized for current Mac OS. Also, the shortcuts are not working.
