Key features in Alfred Powerpack?

I’ve been using Alfred for a while, however I haven’t decided if I want to pay for the Powerpack. Here’s the list of Powerpack features

  • What key features do you use in the Powerpack?
  • Did you purchase the lifetime upgrade?
  • How much is a regular upgrade? The pricing isn’t available since I don’t have a license.

for me this was a no brainer; I want Alfred to stay for a long time so I spent the money.

And I did indeed purchase the lifetime one.

I use workflows, custom search engines and snippets/expansions all the time. I spent 15GBP to upgrade to 4. (I’ve bought the upgrade for 2, 3 and 4.)

Same here. I use it to start searches in google/DDG, wikipedia, IMDB, Reddit etc (including live Amazon searches), to look up contacts, search Mail (not sure that’s available in Catalina+), to convert lengths/temps, and especially the 1Password integration. It’s also my go-to quickie calculator.

I turned off the keyboard command for Spotlight and used Command-Spacebar for Alfred.

Lifetime here too. I’ve been a user since the original beta.

I’ve created tons of workflows and use others’ on a daily basis.

I think I’d pay $99 a year for Alfred if I had to, but I’m glad I don’t. According to my receipts I’ve paid a total of $25 in almost 10 years. Well worth it!

I got the lifetime license and use my own custom workflows multiple times a day.

I purchased the lifetime upgrade. I use workflows several times a day, the 1password integration, and I’m sure other features as I forget which are Powerpack only other than the ones I mentioned. If it weren’t for the one-time purchase TextExpander I’m still using I’d switch that all over to Alfred as it is sufficient for my expansion needs.

Same, very happy Alfred user. I use it probably hundred times per day as I control everything with it.

Yep same here - bought the lifetime. Worth every cent. Use it every day many, many times. One of the absolute essentials I would install on a new Mac, along with Hazel.

Like @JKoopmans, I really wanted to support the Alfred folks…

Easily, the most used PowerPack feature for me is the 1Password support. To open a site with a log in stored in 1Password, I simply invoke Alfred, then type 1P followed by the first few characters of the web site name. BAM, the site opens in my browser and the username and password are usually already loaded into the site.

With most of my work requiring the use of Web apps, I use this constantly.

Like @Shruggie—and considering some of the apps I use cost $1800 to $4200 per YEAR—I, too, would pay more for Alfred. But shhh… let’s not give them any ideas.

Alfred, Hazel, and TextExpander are the keys to my productivity.

I use many of the above resources, it’s replaced text expander for me with their snippets feature, and Alfred spell check is incredible.

Workflows.

Also, the developers are super responsive and lots of helpful users in their forum.

These are the kind of folks I enjoy supporting with my money.

Same. Support the developer. I use Alfred all day long. Trying to remember what are PowerPack features -

  • Snippets, everyday
  • A few workflows.
  • Clipboard history, everyday
  • File Navigation - all day long (Don’t remember if this is a powerpack adder

I am not sure how to use the Spellcheck. I am not sure I even know what that means ? Need to look into it.

+1 for the Lifetime Powerpack. I can’t imagine using my Mac without Alfred. Workflows, custom searches, clipboard history, advanced file navigation, contact lookup, and sync are just some of the Powerpack features I use every single day.

I do wish though that the Alfred forums used a better platform (Discourse!) and that the process to discover and update workflows was easier and more streamlined.

Agree. Both of you points are long overdue.

I would pay for a power pack just for a Bible look up workflow alone. I type in ‘yvf’ and my scripture reference, then I can press enter and be taken directly to the you vervain website, or press CMD+enter and it copies it directly to my clipboard. That alone is worth money lol.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I’m going for the lifetime upgrade and look forward to trying out the workflows and snippets the most. I’ll check out the forum as well.
