As a longtime Mac user, I created Mac Automation Tips because though there are many Mac power users and developer geeks who use Mac automation programs, there are still thousands of Mac users are not taking advantage of automation programs.

Why Automate? 

  • Essentially to automate parts of your Mac workflow with any Mac application.

  • To save you time by speeding up a workflow process.
  • To get more out of your Mac and make it work for you.


Mac Automation Tips will provide lots of tips and strategies for using automation programs, but if you have technical issues with these programs, please direct your questions to the developers themselves. For programs like Keyboard Maestro, BetterTouchTool, TextExpander, and Apple’s smart folder programs, there are user forums set up to address all types of related technical issues. Often times you’ll find that your question or issue has already been addressed in a forum.
