Tutorial Description

The second and final part of LaunchBar 5 (at least for now!) Following on from the hugely popular first tutorial published two weeks ago, this 45 minute extravaganza takes you through some of the new features of LaunchBar 5. LaunchBar 5 is one one of the most respected productivity applications for the Mac.

At it's simplest level, it's an application launcher, but really, it's so much more.

Objective Development, the developers of LaunchBar have been increasing the functionality with each release, adding not just cool but stunningly useful features. The bottom line is that the application very quickly becomes an indispensable tool once you've started using it for even just a few hours.

LaunchBar 5 creates an index of all the ""stuff"" on your Mac - Applications, files, folders, documents, preference panes, web bookmarks, Web history, your iTunes library, your address book, your iPhoto library and much more. It allows you to create abbreviations to search and access all this ""stuff"" without moving your hands from the keyboard, making it so much more efficient that picking up your mouse and clicking all over the screen.

Add in some extra features such as the built in actions and my favourite - integration with webs services and web search templates, you'll wonder how you ever did without it!

You really do need to watch the first part of the two part show, details of which can be found here - SCO0223 - LaunchBar 5 Part 1
