Lacona Is an OS X Launcher That Uses Natural Language Input

Mac: You’ve got tons of great launchers on your Mac, and even the built-in Spotlight does the job well enough for most of us. If you’re looking for something a little different, Lacona is an app currently in beta that uses a natural language input approach.

At its core, Lacona is not much different from an application like Alfred , but it allows a different type of command. Once you open it with a keyboard shortcut, you can use commands such as “switch to Chrome” to switch apps, or “open in Safari.” You can also use it to set up reminders with commands such as “remind me to pick up my cat food tomorrow at 8:00 am.” You will find many different command examples on the developer site. It’s still in beta so the integrations don’t work as expected, but it’s worth playing around with while it’s in beta, especially if you’re not very lucky with other launchers.
