MacVoices #14201: Kirk McElhearn Takes Control of LaunchBar 6

Kirk McElhearn  is back to talk about the new edition of Take Control of LaunchBar  that covers version 6 of our favorite program launching utility. But to brand it as just a launcher is to overlook so many powerful features. Kirk walks us through some of the new additions to LaunchBar 6, large and small, including the program’s new, sixth “super power.” With clipboard memory, the ability to launch not just programs or URLs, but pretty much anything, and the ability to search even your iTunes library, LaunchBar offers a whole lot of power  without ever leaving the keyboard. Kirk instructs us on powerful features  such as “Send to” and “Instant Send, talks about why the LaunchBar usage statistics and help get more out of the program, and more.
