      Altomac introduces Speedy Mac 2008 Release 3

      Altomac today announced the release of Speedy Mac 2008 Release 3, their popular file, folder and website launching utility for Mac OS X. With a focus on ease-of-use, Speedy Mac offers a totally new approach for organizing frequently-used documents. It allows users to quickly access documents, folders, sites, applications and tasks by organizing them into a handy menu. Favorites and recently used documents are automatically classified into groups according to the application that was used to open them, and web pages are conveniently grouped by site. 

      Among one of Speedy Mac's most prolific features is its editable Task Menu. Create just about anything imaginable. Easily hide or quit all running applications at once, create a new folder establishing name and location, eject all removable and external disks, and more. And users can automate the most repetitive tasks by using AppleScript files and Automator workflows too. Easily create new tasks in minutes just by using Automator or Script Editor. Users no longer have to look for the scripts and actions they need. Just add them to Speedy Mac's task list and run them at any time.

      Altomac offers many unique and useful tasks on their website to experiment with. Some additional tasks created by Speedy Mac users are already available for download. For example: Optimize Mail Database, Take a Screen Shot choosing the format and Make File Names Web-Friendly.

      Another innovative feature is the Current Item Menu. It lists where the document is located on the hard drive so that it may open the folder that contains it. Quickly finding the location of a document is just a matter of opening a menu item.

      Version 3 now sports multiple text Clipboard capability. Just choose the needed text item from the Recent Clipboard menu and it is ready to use from the System Clipboard, ready to paste. For frequently needed text phrases, simply add them to Favorites, and use the handy Favorites Clipboard Menu to quickly copy them into the Clipboard, ready paste anywhere. Perfect for using multiple text phrases over and over.

      Speedy Mac is fully customizable, allowing users to easily modify its appearance and lists content and a great way to optimize anyone's workflow.
