Powerful file/URL/email launcher utility.

What is LaunchBar for Mac

LaunchBar is an award-winning productivity utility that offers an amazingly intuitive and efficient way to search and access any kind of information stored on your computer or on the Web. It provides instant access to your applications, documents, contacts, and bookmarks, to your music library, to search engines and more, just by entering short abbreviations of the searched item's name.

You just hit Command-Space to bring LaunchBar's input window to front, enter an arbitrary abbreviation, and as soon as you start typing LaunchBar displays the best matching choices, ready to be opened immediately.

Start applications, open documents, invoke system services, compose emails, or navigate the Web-LaunchBar will be your essential servant.

Lots of features that are too advanced for me, but the ability to move, copy, or make alias of files with just a few keystrokes is easy and useful on a daily basis. The Clipboard History and ClipMerge feature (copy multiple time to the same clip so you only have to paste once) is also great when needed. That's just a fraction of what this can do, but it's enough for me. It’s replaced CopyLess, DropZone and Spotlight for me - I love it.

It is so quick and agile and integrated into my workflow, I hardly realize I'm using until I try to work on a Mac that doesn't have it installed. I believe it is possible to get work done without it, but I'd rather not have to find out. It's one of 2 or 3 apps I have to have.

I have used Alfred, Quicksilver, Butler, and a host of other application launchers over the years, and LaunchBar is still the best. And it's the only one I've used where you can assign your own custom letters to type when launching an app.

My most important utility, it saves me time and my sanity. Without LaunchBar I might as well be using a hammer and chisel. TBH, it does more than I know how but I'm okay with that.

I've been using it for many years now, and it has not let me down. Extremely useful and versatile. I will buy another licence, no questions asked, even if it cost twice as much as the current price. It's a bargain at $31.60 as far as I'm concerned.

Essential program for me. I use it for most searches because I usually want to search on filenames, not contents. I find it more predictable and useful than Spotlight. Also, the clipboard history features is fantastic. I find going back to computers without this feature quite frustrating! Two very minor problems: sometimes it hangs up briefly (just a few seconds) when searching, and I can't search while it's reindexing.

Good software but sometimes difficult to understand. Documentation is not good. KB only exists for Launchbar 5, most of it is valid, but there is no search functionality. Forum no longer usable for new questions since the forum is now read-only due to spam issues: https://forums.obdev.at/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11970 So it's quite complicate to learn more about this software. That's not good.
