One of those apps that will improve your productivity, enhance your geek, and bring shock and awe to the faces of your neighbors as they watch you do more with less effort on your Mac is Butler. The idea behind Butler is simple. Make things you do frequently happen faster. It’s all about Triggers and Tasks.
Butler, as it is with many Mac utilities, lives in the Mac’s Menubar, a mere click away.
Before using Butler you’ll need to setup and configure the Triggers and Tasks. Triggers are Hot Corners, Events, Hotkeys, Menubar, Abbreviations, and Popup Menus.
Tasks can be assigned to each and include Launch Apps, Open Files, Open Preferences, Manage Bookmarks, Run AppleScripts, Simulate Keystrokes, and many, many more.
Once you’ve walked through the setup, Butler awaits your command. Select one of the Triggers and an action and– poof!– you’re a Mac power user.
While Butler is definitely an app that gets you into the level reserved for Mac users who like power, you’ll need to walk through each of the configuration options (Triggers to Actions) to make it work.
Butler is pretty good, will certainly improve your productivity, but also increase your credit card balance more than expected.
