Slight improvement over Spotlight. Has a powerful automation system, but it's too confusing to learn how to use, and there's no place to share your scripts with other people. Keeps releasing new major versions to make the expensive powerpack upgrade obsolete.

Like Spotlight on steroids, especially if you have the PowerPack. One of the first apps I install on a new Mac.

As all too ofetn recently on MacUpdate, today's update to v 4.0.7 leads to a wrongly labelled v 4.0.6 download ("Alfred_4.0.6_1124_4.0.7.dmg"), while the real 4.0.7 is available from Running With Crayons' own page - Get your act together MacUpdate!!!

I use it alongside LaunchBar just to have a couple of features that works better for me. I prefer LaunchBar, but Alfred is the close second to me. Extremely versatile and useful in many ways. I would use it as my primary tool if LaunchBar goes belly up. For that, I already bought a Power Pack license.

Alfred is not just another Quick launcher, it does that but so much more. It is your Mac executive assistant. If you only choose one utility, this is it.

There's an area in which I definitely find Alfred easier than LaunchBar, it's the Web Search (that LaunchBar calls Search Template). With a single move you define the search query AND the shortcut, while with LaunchBar, you have to switch to another app, call LaunchBar, search for your Search Template, right-clic to assign the shortcut... Until now, I've run both apps in parallel, despite an attempt to switch totally to LaunchBar a few years ago... Now I'm thinking the other way around. I still have to figure how to do a few other things in Alfred, as I've just made up my mind right now, but I'm pretty confident. :-)

All I can say is that this is the most impressive search tool I have ever used. With this tool I can find anything I want using any search engine. Just type in what I am looking for and choose the search engine and Alfred is up and running to help you. Simple to use. A very smart app.
