When you use Liquid, commands become so quick you'll start flying through your information - you will work at the speed of thought, not at the speed of hunting for icons to click.

Have a look at to see a video demonstration to learn more about how powerfully easy it is to use.

Integrated with the Author word processor and the Reader PDF reader applications.

Note: Click on the ‘gears’ icon on the right in Liquid to access the Preferences.

To Customise The Keyboard Shortcut:

To change the Keyboard Shortcut to the more convenient command-space (or anything else you prefer), open System Preferences, click on Keyboard, make sure you are in the Shortcuts tab, then, in the column on the left:

1) Click on Spotlight and disable command-space
2) Click on Services and scroll down to Liquid and double-click on the current Liquid shortcut, then set it to be command-space (or whatever you prefer).

Thank you and please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions or comments:

Letters. Words. Sentences. Paragraphs. Page after page of words on the internet, cluttering my computer, my mind, and my day. How are they all connected? What do they all mean?


If I were faced with the task of teaching someone, who had never used a electronic device what the internet does and is capable of I would begin by introducing them to Liquid.

“Well, what do I do if I want to, and what is, and how do you, and what does all this mean …?”

They can all be answered with a few taps and Liquid.

I have a socket wrench. I use different attachments on it: standard, metric, extensions, and so forth. The wrench is something I can fit tools to helping me implement useful tasks I engage in, which enliven myself and others.

Liquid is something I use in expressing thoughts I have in a clear and meaningful way to myself and others.

Very easy to get the hang of.
Lovely to look at and use.

That Apple hasn’t appropriated and absorbed the principles in Liquid as standard features remains a mystery. Probably because the development of Liquid continues to evolve into greater, more expansive usefulness which only a loving crafter might devote to a masterpiece.

Liquid is a work of devoted love for communication, computers, words, and in the end the customer using this brilliant software.

Drastic workflow improvements abound

This is an essential application. To be sure it is elegant, brilliantly executed, and a time saver. The ability to properly cite and retrieve quotes from the Internet to use now or repurpose later is invaluable to a writer or researcher. The shortcuts to search specific or designated websites allows the Internet to become more accessible in daily workflows. The ease with which one can translate from English to French with no need to take your hands off the keyboard is a wonder as is the ability to convert from different measurement units. I use this app multiple times during the day, and it remains wondrously new. 

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your kind words. They are very much appreciated.

It's not an app launcher

At first I thought that this was a lite version of Alfred or spotlight however I was mistaken. As those are geared toward app launching / searching for computer files, Liquid is geared toward searching for the etymology/definition/translations of words. If you are working with large bodies of text and are constantly translating multiple languages or looking up the root of many words, this app is a must have. You can also add additional reference/search sites that encode the search paramater within the URL and create a summary view of lengthy articles, a welcomed time saver.

Thank you, much appreciated :-)
