Search and Browse
Launch applications and find files on your Mac or on the web. Alfred learns how you use your Mac and prioritises results.
Save countless hours by using hotkeys, keywords and customising how you want to search your Mac and activity history.
Jump in and browse, preview files and take action on them without lifting your fingers off the keyboard.

Type Less, Say More
With Alfred’s Clipboard History and Snippets features, there’s no need to type the same URLs or responses over and over.
Use the Clipboard History to locate any text, image or file you copied earlier and paste it again.
Create your own snippets and type a short abbreviation to auto-expand them into a full text snippet, saving yourself hours of typing in the long run!

Extend and Automate
With Alfred’s Powerpack, use immensely powerful workflows to perform tasks more efficiently and cut down on repetitive manual tasks.
Link hotkeys, keywords and actions together to create your own workflows; There’s no need to write a single line of code to create a workflow. Import workflows from the thousands our community of creators have shared.

Control Your Music
You’re the boss. Boost your productivity by controlling your Mac using Alfred’s deep integration with OS X. Swiftly take action on files and contacts, control your music player and dispatch System commands.
Add some fun to your day; Turn your iPhone or iPad into a command centre for your Mac with Alfred Remote for iOS.

    macOS Monterey on m1 macbookpro 2021 16inch
    Works for me! Powerpack part you just click “skip” and it’s registered.

    This works on M1 Monterey. The steps are as follows to get it to work:

    1. Download the file
    2. Install the file by dragging it to the Applications folder
    3. Open Terminal and copy and paste the following command
    4. sudo xattr -rd /Applications/Alfred\
    5. Terminal will ask for your password, enter it and click enter.
    6. Run the Alfred app, by double clicking the icon
    7. Click Skip the PowerPack setup (it will say you need to buy it just ignore this message)
    8. Either close the app and re-open it or log out and log back in, the powerpack should now work

    CRUCIAL: DO NOT UPDATE THE APP! It will remove the PowerPack. You must not update the app, EVER.

    Is this working with Monterey? On tel Macs?

  13. Alex says:

    Anyone tested this on M1 mac? Is it safe to use?

  14. Anonymous says:
    The app doesn't open. I'm on an intel Mac, and I used this code too: sudo xattr -rd /Applications/Alfred\
  15. jimmy says:

    How do we activate the power pack?

  16. name says:

    It says its a universal app, but dosent work on m1 natively!!
    When can we see a app which actually runs natively?

  17. Darren says:

    Powerpack never works on any of these……

  18. kasia says:

    Damaged = Gatekeeper. Turn Off Gatekeeper or de-quarantine the app.
