LaunchBar and Trickster


Apparent Software just released a LaunchBar action for Trickster (along with a Trickster update) that allows for perfect integration of Trickster’s file tracking and filtering capabilities with my favorite launcher app.

I first mentioned Trickster—an app that tracks and filters recently-opened files— a couple of years ago , and it’s continued to evolve since. Trickster 2.1 added quite a few features for automation , and the latest version (2.3.4) integrates with LaunchBar 6’s latest features to take advantage of them, so this is a great combo.

The Action lets you list, filter, and act on Trickster’s tracked files from LaunchBar, as well as send a file from LaunchBar to Trickster.

It’s kind of a footnote on the announcement post, but the Instant Send integration is an excellent feature. Since Trickster is fully keyboard-navigable, you can select any file and then tap your LaunchBar Instant Send shortcut to perform any action that LaunchBar has available.

Check out the Action on the Apparent Blog . If you’re an Alfred user, there’s an Alfred Workflow for you , too.
