Hot key application switcher / launcher...
Posted by: Bosco

I would like to switch between specific applications (or, launch) with a simple hot key combination.

I'm aware of command / tab... However, I want to launch or select a specific application with a hot key combination instead.

Does Leopard already have this capability... or, is there a third party utility app you can recommend? If so, I'd like to spend less than $30.

Thanks.

For me, spotlight is generally the easiest. Apple-space, W = Word; Apple-space, SA = safari. And it is free.

volcs, spotlight is sort of like the command / tab thing. A couple key combinations, then scroll over to the app (or, as you mentioned, type the first few letters of the app). Too many key strokes...

I want a hot key combo that will take me directly to a specific app fast.

Wow, no one's suggested Quicksilver yet?

Awesome, flexible, fast, powerful, free.
