If I could have only one Mac utility, only one single piece of software that I could use to improve using my Mac and all its programs as I went about my daily business, it would be Objective Development’s LaunchBar. When I use a Mac that doesn’t have LaunchBar running, I simply feel naked.
We’ve reviewed LaunchBar numerous times in the past, and it’s always been a favorite of ours. Version 3.2 received five mice from Ted Landau five years ago and version 4.0.2 received a perfect score from Dan Frakes again in 2005. And now it’s my term to praise LaunchBar, with the release of LaunchBar 4.3.2 ( ; business license, $39; home license, $20; 5-user family pack, $30).
It can be hard to to picture what LaunchBar can do. So I’ve created a video in which I demonstrate most of the basic LaunchBar features.
