Use Alfred to remap “iCal” and “Address Book” (or, Stephen Hackett is a genius)

Stehpen Hackett explains how to use Alfred to make a change in Mac OS X less annoying.

Apple’s OS X Mountain Lion re-names Address Book to Contacts and iCal to Calendar. That’s fine, but I keep typing “iCal” and “Address Book” into my beloved Alfred. 1 It’s not the end of the world, but annoying. Fortunately, Stephen has a fix.

He points out that you can use Alfred’s custom keyword mapping to forgive your forgetfulness. Well done.

Update: Thomas Borowski points out that Mountain Lion’s Spotlight does that for you (below).

  1. Seriously, I love Alfred. Here’s how I use it every day. Federico Viticci uses it to create logs in Day One. Finally, here’s my TUAW review of version 1.0. It’s only gotten better since. This is not an ad, I just love the app. Go get it.
