MacVoices #13165: Kirk McElhearn Takes Control of LaunchBar

The latest effort from Kirk McElhearn is Take Control of LaunchBar. and he is anxious to tell you about LaunchBar’s five “super powers.” Most people are familiar with LaunchBar as a program launcher, but Kirk takes introduces us to the idea that LaunchBar can do so much more. From a way to amplify the power of your searches to a keyboard-centric way to control iTunes, Kirk walks us through some of the literally hundreds of capabilities of Objective Development’s LaunchBar, and how to get the most out of it.
