    "Quick access to just about anything"

    April 24, 2005  |   By be_free


    SlickRun is a command utility that allows you to open any application, URL, or music stream (as examples), using a concept called "MagicWords". It can be either floating and/or invisbible, and show up just when you need it with a key combination you decide, or locked in a position you prefer. It will keep your hands on the keyboard and speed up your computing. I am yet to learn all about its features, but what is mentioned so far is reason enough to use this awesome little application.


    None detected so far. Since the advanteages of using this application is based on a user's willingness to understand and appreciate its concepts, create MagicWords, and configure it properly -- some time and testing needs to be spent. This can be seen as a Con by some people, as most computer users I encounter are simply lazy. I'd say SlickRun is a professional computer user's little tool that is very discrete. This fact is not really a Con, but just something you might want to be aware of.
