Hi everybody - I just wanted to announce a utiility I’ve released which is a replacement for Apple’s Script Menu utility. It’s called FastScripts and is basically everything Apple’s utility does but with some annoying problems addressed. More information below in the Press Release.
SAN FRANCISCO, USA - April 14, 2003 - Red Sweater Software today announced the immediate availability of an elegant new utility for executing scripts on computers running the Mac OS X operating system.
Aiming to improve upon Apple’s own Script Menu utility, FastScripts provides all of Script Menu’s major features, as well as improvements that dramatically improve the usefulness of a menu-based script utility.
FastScripts’ “Smart Switching” feature allows users to conveniently execute AppleScript, Perl, and other shell scripts from any application without interrupting the workflow of that application with annoying context switches. When a script requires user interaction, Smart Switching auatomatically switches to the script’s context to handle the interaction, then switches back to the user’s application. Other improvements include a cleaned up menu appearance, better organization of menu items, and a focus on swift script execution.
FastScripts 1.0 is available immediately from Red Sweater Software. For more information, and to download an full-featured evaluation copy of the program, visit the Fast Scripts home page at the following URL:
