I love Raycast. I use command palettes on most apps, so having a more powerful one than the traditional Spotlight is great. I really appreciate the speed at which the team is moving, too. I always see new releases which are exciting.

I've been using Raycast as my MacOS launcher for years now, and it's become an integral part of my setup. I have written two custom extensions for my personal use cases, and the developer API is absolutely incredible and easy to use — and the community is super helpful! 11/10 would not use anything else ever again 👏

This is like a modern Alfred meets the Apple App store. Easy to use with onboarding that encourages a good setup while you learn. The best part is the Store with lots of community actions connecting to all things new.

I've been using Raycast for months and it's by far one of my favorite apps. The product and the team behind it are fantastic. I set up my new MacBook this week and guess which app I have installed first? 🙈

I never thought I would leave Alfred for Mac until I met Raycast.
I use Raycast to access Notion, Arc, and many other applications. It is difficult for me to imagine work without a Raycast

Valuable out of the box and then you can customize. Pro worth it for the AI functionality built in

Very fast, stable and there are lots of updates. Subscription for AI is a bit steep, but that’s prbably not Raycast’s fault.
I can't imagine using my Mac without Raycast. It is incredibly useful and easily my favorite productivity tool!
