Guess what! There are more reasons why Alfred is a killer app that can improve your productivity. The following workflows save you time; and frustration when you are trying to find something you couldn’t remember how to do off the cuff.
I’ve found that my links can be really really long at times when posting on social media. Instead of trying to have people type out a far to long of a link, I’ve been using Google Developers Link Shorter. This helps a whole lot when having several links from different sources.
One of my favorite list management tools comes from Todoist. Oft times I find an idea / task come to my head that I needed to remember later. TThis method lets the thoughts be put down on “paper” within 5 keystrokes on the keyboard. Later, those notes can be organized and prioritized depending on the circumstance.
Another favorite app of mine is Evernote from Evernote. It’s still is my favorite note taking apps though moving over to Bear App has crossed my mind due to the sheer beauty of the app. However I enjoy creating tables and searching images if needed which is not supported in Bear. Alfred again gives me quick access to these notebooks which I can streamline my search.
This is great for symbols that aren’t easy to find or email responses you use on a regular basis. Most of the time I’ve found it to be more useful for things such as Emojis or Mac symbols which otherwise I have to go search online then copy and paste.
From time to time, there are apps that just freeze. They are stuck and cannot be stopped and thus need to be force closed. This simple but effective method does that without having to open the Activity Monitor.
And then lastly….
If you love to place gifs into your presentations or emails to coworkers; this is a great way to have fun and be quick.
