    Hello!

    Is there a way to get Alfred (the search app) to find stuff with custom names?

    Example, on Lion and before Contacts were called Address Book, and I'd still like to be able to type Address Book and the contacts app to show up.

    I've done it for Spotlight, thinking it would transfer over to Alfred, but it doesn't?

    Same with iCal - searching iCal in Alfred doesn't show up Calendar. (At least for me!)

    Thanks :)

    This works. Just click the plus at the bottom left and add a "File or group" then name it like I did. Then when you search Alfred for iCal and enter it will launch Calender app.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Do you need the power pack for it? - don't seem to have the extensions option on mine, if so I'll get it :)

    Thanks!

    Yes you do. I'm sorry I did not notice that before. The Power Pack is well worth it though.
