HotApp is a utility app that let you assign a key combination to activate the application of your choice.

What's New

Version 1.9.2u: The first universal binary for HotApp is now available. This version is strongly recommended for any users running Tiger on an Intel system. We did almost no code change to have HotApp running on Intel. We had basically to tweak some configuration settings for XCode, and build the new Universal version. Easy job !

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later

Works under Mt. Lion too! Only runs in 32 bit mode but who cares, its not Photoshop.
This app is invaluable...when I get a new comp its usually the first thing I install (and when you have a new install you can import your old data! If you backed it up that is).
Too bad its abandonware...

My favorite utility, *ever*
- I bought this back in 2005 & it's stil working perfectly countless times a day, every day, totally glitch-free through every OS X update, including Snow Leopard.

Not just a hot-key application launcher, it will also perform system actions, open AppleScripts, URLs, paste text, add addresses, perform mouse events/actions etc.

Recently unable to find Trufsoft website any more, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed & hoping the Universal Binary version HotApp 1.9.2u works in Lion too!
(...my new Mac should be delivered next week)

Hi Cybercat. I'm using HatApp even for years and it works for me as assumed. Unfortunately it seems that this product is end of life.
Indeed I use HotApp actually under Lion and it seems it works but there are two little behaviors. The first is, that HotApp is a 32bit program respectively preferences pane. So if you click on the icon, system preferences have to restart in 32bit modus. But this happened automatically. The second is that the implemented notification system of HotApp doesn't work anymore. Both behaviors are not direct relevantly for the proper functionality, but more or less it is not really perfect for now.

That's a pit, but perhaps we have a little bit of luck and the developer comes back to supports this fantastic program again – or someone else could do....?!

Best regards, Schwity.

@ MARVINBASS

Unbelievable but I can't find my original installer file, too. But I've zipped my installed preference pane and copy it to your iDisk. I hope this will work for you - I think it should do.

Been using this for years but with no trouble until Leopard.

Very sporadic since 10.5.6.

I am still on 10.3.9, so this may or may not be true. For those interested in saving $15, download Spark, a fantastic little utility (in my opinion) for configuring hot keys, etc. I am so used to it, I forget it's there.

To the previous commenter: MaxMenus may be a nice OS X system addition, but it surely doesn't have a similar featureset. HotApp does provide a keyboard shortcut to almost every possible system-action, whereas MaxMenus does just Menu Enhancements (to all 4 screen corners) to conviniently start Apps, find Documents, Folders, etc.

MaxMenus has similar functionality plus a great way to navigate through folders. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/7272

MaxMenu does not offer the same feature set as HotApp (just launching app), but that's basically it. HotApp is a lot more than an application launcher : you can trigger so many actions from a hot key with HotApp, and make your productivity go higher by just using the keyboard.

I am really impress by HotApp. I was missing the hot key feature available in OS 9 and Trufsoft is now providing it. I agree : a must have

Whaooo ! It's a great app. Now function keys are working (I guess this is new compared to the other comments). I really like the feature to assign a key combination to open a url. Good work ! Please don't stop there!
