If you are a user of the popular productivity application Alfred you might like this workflow created by our forum user danielsh. You can navigate your databases or create new notes with just a few keystrokes. Here’s what the author says about it:
With Alfred’s new feedback system for workflows, you can navigate through your databases and find the group you’re looking for, then enter a space and start typing your note. If it’s much in demand, I’ll add things like favorite groups. But it’s hot off the hard drive and ready for testing in its current form now if you’ve got a copy of Alfred 2.
Download it here or through AlfPT (the Unofficial Alfred Workflow Repository). The workflow requires Alfred v2 or later.
Addendum: Unfortunately the Alfred workflow and the Unofficial Alfred Workflow Repository have joined the eternal hunting grounds. Sorry.
