Posted in Apps on 12/05/2011 by Cormac Moylan


It’s a busy new for app releases. Twitter (mobile + Mac),, Skype, and now have all notched up super extra bonus release points as a result of their recent updates., the super great app launcher for Mac, is up to 0.9 and brings with it global hotkeys, terminal commands, dragging files from Alfred into apps, syncing, quit / hide / force quit command, and an iTunes DJ feature. More info about the feature updates can be found here.

A video walkthrough of the new features is embed below.

How cool is that quit, hide, force quit feature? Simply type one of the three commands into Alfred and you will be able to quit or hide your open apps. Selecting quit will prompt you with a message to save your progress in an app if the document is unsaved but force quit will completely boot out of the app.

Very nice feature.
