    "Superb launcher"

    July 2, 2003  |   By la patrona--2008

    Version: LaunchBar 3.2.11

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is really a strong piece of software. I paid for it a long time ago and have it on my machine --but I rarely use it. Lex Luthor's review and analogy about having a butler fetch your stuff (since you may have no clue as to where it is) is a good one. I am also more visual about where my content is located and I am also highly organized. And I use some excellent "organizing software" like DevonThink, Notebook, and iView Media Pro. I prefer knowing where that file is coming from by visually seeing where it is located, and what its relationship is to other files of its kind. And I'm just as fast at getting to stuff as I was when I was using Launchbar. However, I still keep Launchbar on my box and once in a while I get "lazy" and hit a few keys to conjure up an app or file (or --and this is where it does shine for me-- to find a URL to email to someone.) Launchbar is the perfect program for people who tend to throw things into their closet and then "have the butler" fetch it. It's a very excellent program that deserves a lot of praise. Try it and see if it works for you.

    Well, I had waited on the fence with Launch Bar, and all I can say is that I wish I had tried it sooner! Ease of use, simple interface, and speed are all present here.
    Great app! :)

    "genius"

    June 8, 2003  |   By noneofyourbiz

    Version: LaunchBar 3.2.11

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is probably the best example I have seen of a piece of software known as "why didnt apple think of this" software. Walk up to your machine, press command and space bar, then within seconds you are where you want to be. Be it a web page, a file, an app, a folder, an email, anything. No navigating menus or windows. It knows all the sites in your favorites and history, it knows all your contacts, it knows all the things it needs to know to get you wherever in a heartbeat. I am shocked no one before has thought of browsing the file system this way, it makes absolute sense and is lightning fast. Cannot do without it now, every other way seems tedious.

    "A metaphorically visual minded review"

    June 6, 2003  |   By Lex Luthor--2008

    Version: LaunchBar 3.2.11

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The best launcher/browser for the 'wordy' type of mac user by a long shot.
    I have seen and felt it's power - but it ain't for me. Why you may ask ?
    Well, I like to know where everything is on my mac - visually so to speak - and believe it or not with just the finder's help I do.
    This app is like having jeeves ( the butler, not the search engine) working for you - Ask him for something and he knows where it is - Well I know where everything is and am well organized - and would fall into bad habit's using this little abbreviational mnemonic nightmare of an app.
