How to boost your efficiency with Alfred on the Mac [VIDEO]

Alfred is an app I've been using for the last 5-6 years and is one of the most common tools I use on a daily basis to do my work.

Alfred is a search tool on the Mac, similar to Spotlight, but on steroids! Here are some of my favourite features:

  • You can customise Alfred's appearance.
  • Search for files and perform actions e.g. move or copy the file.
  • Create your own custom web search e.g. search YouTube or Amazon.
  • Easily open new tabs with the bookmarks feature.
  • It comes with a clipboard manager which allows you to recover copied text from up to 3 months ago.
  • You can create text snippets for things like email templates.
  • Open your web accounts and log in using the 1Password integration.
  • Run system commands like sleep and restart.
  • Create productivity workflows to perform actions e.g. do not disturb, toggle dark mode, currency conversion, create Asana task. You can download many on the Alfred website.
