This is so many apps in one and its free! It does what Apple Spotlight/Alfred does, Magnet/Rectange (window management), Snippets management, web search from it, change system toggles (bluetooth, vol) which is useful for non Apple keyboards, search emojis (Rocket), screenshots, on screen temporary notes, calculator etc. I am just scratching the surface here as it has a store of free extensions to integrate most 3rd party apps too! If you have the money to donate to one free app it would be this one.

Simply the best Alternative to Spotlight I’ve ever tried. First one that actually works well for me. Extensions are very easy to develop if you know a little bit about programming. The UI is fast, beautiful, and keyboard-first.

It's not just an application launcher, it's also able to search and switch opened windows using a keyboard, full-text search in application menus, manage clipboard history, and more. It also has many more extensions available than any other similar application. They allow control of almost any desktop application (e.g. iTerm2, Spotify, Authy, etc.) and web service (e.g. GitHub, Google, etc.).

The only downside is that, at least extensions, are written in TypeScript, so it's really slow.
