"I strongly recommend this app for those who use Quick Silver or Namely before like me. Quick Silver offers too much while Namely too little comparing to Launcher".
"This app is absolutely amazing. I used to use Quick Silver, but as there has been very little development work continued on it, it was time to move on. This app has all the features of Quick Silver (except shortcut keys, install Shortcuts for that) ans is much prettyer, faster and cleaner".
"I am a college student majoring in computer engineering and this app is brilliant i bought it and 3 minutes and i already know its gonna be the next big thing. Brilliantly simple to use and a very sexy UI. The one thing made 100% easier the abillity to make commands. For web searches it makes use of the default browser. my one bit is that i wish it would stay open after a command so that i can enter multiple commands without clicking on icon and abillity to open mulitple apps at once".
