Launch applications by name using Applescript
Authored by: mistercow on Jan 21, '04 10:33:52PM

One advantage of this method over the shellscript method is that it automatically adapts to making shortcuts.

For example, if you run this script and then type "txt" but don't have an application called "txt" on your computer, it will ask you to choose an application from a list of all applications. You can then select TextEdit, and from then on running this script and typing "txt" will open TextEdit.
