I would love to see some of the Features of the free app called Launcher by the same developer. Why are such simple but useful features like "show in Finder" and "Copy Path" missing in the paid NuKit app? Navigate to a folder by simply typing the folders name is a great feature too I would love to see in the paid NuKit app!

A Mac App Store 1.2 version is quite the same as a non-MAS 1.1.5 version. NuKit 2.0 is being prepared for a release.

Link is still for 1.1.5 Going to the dev's website also confirms that the current version is 1.1.5, so maybe the 1.2 announcement was a little premature. Hopefully this will get updated correctly soon. I am hoping that the 1.2 release fixes the keyboard/right click freeze that the previous reviewer mentioned and which I have experienced on several occasions too.

Tends to disable right click and keyboard input after a time delay. Some kind of memory leak.

NuKit is actually a lot cheaper in the App Store. I see 7.99 € as of now.

I would love it if NuKit displayed bookmarks from Safari and/or other Web browsers for ease of adding shortcuts.

I didn't know NuKit until recently when it appeared on MacUpdate promo. When I saw it for the first time I just thought it's another file launcher like many others that reside on my Mac and I rarely use them. Well, I was wrong! To begin with it functions flawlessly i.e. the program receives and responds to the commands without fail even if you type them very quickly. It's possible to assign a variation of shortcuts to all your primary files, applications, urls, scripts and system actions like muting the volume, restarting, shutting down, etc. My favorite function is bringing up the dictionary in the same window I use to type other commands i.e. if I type let's say "saf" it launches Safari but if I write "Safari" it immediately gives me a brief definition of this word. Hitting return brings up full definitions and shows the embedded dictionary. I find this more intuitive than searching my words on a full definition dictionary right from the very beginning. Words like "high" or "dry" have tens of meanings that unless you know what you want it's like searching a needle in a haystack. Well, with NuKit's function of showing only a brief description of each meaning searching for such words is not so tedious as before. Those who use Apple's Magic Mouse can surely benefit from removing or resizing functions; I don't. To put it in a nutshell, if you are looking for a fast simple utility that can handle many of your daily needs on your computer then you might consider this tiny but in the meantime great application.

Just bought this nifty little app via ZOT. My first impressions are pretty good. However, a few little things could be enhanced/adjusted imho. 1. Get rid of the massive help tooltips as they cover almost the entire workarea in preferences and - at least to me - are rather annoying. I constantly have to move the mouse in order to get rid of the tooltips. Help is available via the helptray, so why tooltips anyway? 2. When I want to modify a launcher command or add a new launcher command, as soon as I choose from the command type dropdown, the intro window jumps to the lower left corner of the screen. It still works but that's very annoying ;-) 3. Give us the ability to add search engines on our own. The given list is o.k. but I'd rather add some search engines or other sites I'm using often which are not in the list. 4. Add magnetic edges (as an option) for window moving/resizing like in Zooom. Makes moving/resizing so much quicker and intuitive. 5. Add a preference to get rid of the app being listed in the Command/Tab open app-list (you know what I mean). MenuCalendarClock has a preference that allows for this so it can be done. After all, this is a keyboard launcher, right? 6. The popup hint for Caps Lock doens't work for me (or am I missing something?).What does the popup hint look like? Is it a Growl notification? Could be due to the fact that I'm on a Logitech KB/Mouse Combo. But it should still work, shouldn't it? The command to the OS when pressing Caps Lock is still the same, no matter what keyboard. I'm on a MacBook Pro w/ OS X 10.5.8 Keep up the good work!

Tried it out when it was on MU Promo. It crashed 2/4 times I used the launcher, so it seems to need a little work before it's ready for prime time.

Pretty nice little utility. I already own apps that cover all its bases (LaunchBar, Zooom, MacPilot, etc.), but for someone without these apps, NuKit would provide many useful features for a good price. In my brief testing, the Launcher part of the app didn't seem nearly as versatile as LaunchBar or Quicksilver. Any plans to expand its feature set, or is simplicity the goal here?
