Automator Gets the Bronze!

In a Karlin Associates survey of Macworld readers, Automator came in third place as the most important new feature of Tiger, at 14%, behind 64-bit addressing and Spotlight at number one. One reader responded it’s “worth the price all by itself”. We wholeheartedly agree, but can’t help but wonder if the IOC should review the scores, since we all know Automator is much cooler than Spotlight-right?

For more details on this survey, read the article at Macworld.



  1. Any idea for a link where I can ask Apple for conditional branching in Automator ?! How about a poll on your site or a small petition on increase Automator awareness ?! Especially since it’s really important for the success of Automator that it’s supported by the developers of current apps

  2. Apple’s standard form for OS feedback is, which is probably the best shot you have (short of getting directly involved with the developer community).

    I’m actually rather confident that developers will jump on board with Automator, once they see a) how powerful it can be and b) that it will only help drive publicity and sales of their products.
