Very useful and a real time saver

I've used Fastscripts for several years to run Applescripts and shell scripts. I also use it to launch apps. Occasionally I'll use the Fastscript drop-down menu to run scripts but I primarily use easily-assigned keyboard shortcuts.

Fastscripts has a number of useful features that become apparent with time. One example is the ability to set keyboard shortcuts and scripts that apply only when a specific app is active.

On two occasions I've had to contact the developer for support. On both occasions, he has responded quickly with a fix, even though the issue was one of my own doing.

True to its name, Fastscripts runs scripts at top speed, and, for me, it's become an almost indispensable utility. Five stars.
