If you’re serious about being productive on your Mac, you’ll probably have already heard of Alfred – a powerful QuickLaunch app for OS X that allows you to do everything from find files to search Google in just a few quick keystrokes. In a blog post on Alfred’s website earlier on december, version 2 of Alfred was announced, along with the promise of some sneak previews over the coming weeks. This weekend saw the first of these previews, showing off a powerful new feature, Workflows.
Workflows in Alfred allow you trigger multiple searches at once, start automated processes, and feed the results back to you in a number of ways (including via Notification Center). What’s more, all of these can be created and edited in Alfred’s preferences. It’s a cool improvement on already much-loved app, although you may have to wait a little longer for it – there’s no set date for the release of Alfred V2, but Mega Supporters can test the beta.
