Vortex for Mac
Being able to quickly perform various tasks by simply using a hotkey has the potential of greatly improving your productivity level. Vortex is a small Mac OS X utility that offers you the possibility to compress files to different types of archives, uninstall apps in no time, and more.
Enables you to access various tools through a minimalist user interface
The Vortex app stays out of your way most of the time, yet it remains accessible at all times: at launch, the app places a menu in your status bar where you can choose to enables the service, invoke the Vortex window and apply various functions, or access the app’s Preferences.
The customization options include the possibility to change the location of the action zone and the Vortex key. At the same time, you can decide if you want the Vortex hotkey to be available globally. Unfortunately, during our test, invoking the app’s window did not function all the time.
Comes packed with functions designed to increase your productivity level
Via the Vortex main window you can easily access the application functions: the search bar placed on top of the window can help you find a specific tool a lot faster. Vortex allows you to convert media files to various formats, such as MP3, AAC, AIFF, WAV, AVI, MP4, FLV, or MOV.
In addition, you can compress or decompress RAR, ZIP, or 7Z archives, convert text files ( the TXT, DOC, DOCX, ODT, RTF, and HTML file formats are supported), search text online, convert images to other formats, and much more. You can read the Vortex online tutorial to learn more about what the app has to offer.
User friendly toolbox app designed to increase your productivity level
Vortex can be used to perform common tasks without having to deal with complex utilities. Since you can use hotkeys to trigger different actions, resolving a certain task proves to be very straightforward.
