    I'm looking to buy Launchbar but saw this other app called Default Folder X.

    Does anybody know whether Launchbar achieves the same functions as Default Folder or are they completely different apps?

    Thanks for your help.

    They're completely different, but helpful utilities. I use DF all the time, Launchbar not as often.

    I also feel that I can't live without DF, but that's just me. I bought a single license of DF back in 2008, and it's been upgraded since then - I don't know how they make money, but they're keen on keeping DF up to date. My GF uses Launchbar every day and loves it.

    Thanks for your reply.

    That's good to know. I didn't want to buy both if they could essentially do the same as each other but as they serve different purposes I will consider both.

    Thank you.
