    "The Productiverator"

    October 10, 2003  |   By stephencrim

    Version: LaunchBar 3.2.12

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Most launcher apps may shave, say, fractions of a second off each transaction. Savings minutes per day, training your muscle memory until you might peak somewhere around a second per transaction, more for frequently used applications, but often still having to revert to the old 'dig it out and launch it'.

    LaunchBar is 'in touch' with your computer. It flattens out application access to let you, at will, get at ANYTHING you want just by typing a pnemonic. Abbreviations, hyphenations, or whatever part of the application's name you can remember pulls it up to within a few ups and downs on the keyboard. The second time you launch, there's no hunting, it's just there. What's even better is that it can do the exact same thing to your bookmarks and documents.

    Pull that stuff out of your dock, download this program, and pay the man.

    "SIMPLY AMAZING! This thing can read your mind!"

    Summary

    Well ok, maybe not in the literal sense but still, this little app is one of the greatest productivity tools of all time!

    It saves so much time you have to wonder how you ever managed to live without it!

    The adaptive behavior of the application doesn't cease to amaze me.

    I keep throwing different letters at it every time (I think), but still it knows what I'm looking for.

    WARNING: Once you use this you will NEVER be able to live without it!

    ADVICE: BUY IT! BUY IT NOW!

    "Fantastic utility"

    Summary

    I downloaded LaunchBar and, within an hour of installing it, I paid the shareware fee. I've used a Mac since the late 80's, and I wish I had something like LaunchBar all of these years.

    I have had a Mac since April of 1984. This is the coolest piece of software I have seen since Quickeys was first published. I am speechless. I wish I'd thought of it.

    If I had only known, I would have bought this ages ago. It's ability to filter on the fly is invaluable. A truly useful app.

    I guess we'll be seeing LaunchBars 3.2.13-3.2.99, because there's just nothing major to be added that would justify a major version jump.

    "The most useful"

    Version: LaunchBar 3.2.12

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    piece of software I've ever used on my mac in more than 17 years. I'm so accustomed to using it that I actually get annoyed when I use a computer that doesn't have it installed. Worth every nickle of the price.
