A Cocoa input manager that creates shortcuts for services.

Overview

HotService is a Cocoa input manager bundle, and all shortcuts of services are available right after launching Cocoa applications. Up to Mac OS X 10.3.9, you have to pull down the application menu at least once before it's possible to use shortcuts of services. In addition, HotService moves the services menu up to the main menu bar (behind the windows menu) to make it easier to reach the services.

What's new in HotService

Version 2.3:
  • NEW: Universal binary for Intel and PowerPC Macs
  • Improved: Title of services menu isn't a bullet anymore
  • Fixed: Fix for Adobe Acrobat 8

As noted on Devon Technologies web site, "HotService does not work any more on Mac OS X 10.5 and higher as Mac OS X 10.5 disables all Input Managers."

Because the Finder isn't a cocoa app. No services will work with the Finder.

I think what he means is that Cocoa Input Managers don't work in Carbon apps. Carbon apps can certainly add hooks for services, as Finder does, though they don't get them automatically.
