Alfred is now available through the Mac App Store

Yesterday, Apple launched its Mac App Store, a new service where over a thousand applications can already be downloaded. We’re proud to say that the free Alfred core is available for download from the App Store and that thousands of users have already grabbed a copy.

It was also with great excitement that we discovered that Apple hand-picked us to be in the “New and Noteworthy” featured section.

Upgrading to the Powerpack

Currently, only the Alfred core is available on the App Store as the Powerpack is still evolving quickly. Once Apple adds in-app upgrade and Alfred nears version 1.0, it’s very likely that you’ll be able to buy the Powerpack in the Mac App Store.

In the meantime, if you’re upgrading from the core to Powerpack, you’ll need to download Alfred directly from our website first in order to enter your Powerpack code.

We appreciate that this isn’t the most straightforward process at the moment, but switching to the non-App-Store version ensures you’re on the lead development version and first to see all of the new Powerpack features during pre-releases!

Five-star reviews across the board

Finally, thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave a review on the App Store. We appreciate your kind feedback, both on Twitter and in the App Store.

We’re quickly making our way up into the Top 10 Free Apps in a number of countries, so continue to rate Alfred and help us get to the top! :D

  1. Loving Alfred so far. I’m going to wait for the powerpack to be available through the Mac App store though. Do you think that’s a matter of days/weeks or are we talking months?

    • Darrell, we’re in the dark too as far as this goes. We’re hoping it’s no more than a few months but haven’t heard any evidence one way or the other yet.

    • Hi Randy,

      The Powerpack offers additional functionality to the free version of Alfred, such as the ability to browse your Mac, control iTunes, save multiple clips, work with files and recent documents and much more, all within the Alfred window.

      To see all the features, just pop by our website.
