This was all before I discovered Alfred’s Powerpack, which effectively unlocks everything that’s powerful about the app. Without the Powerpack, Alfred isn’t too much better than Apple’s built-in Spotlight search. With the Powerpack, you can install workflows that speed up macOS and skip over extra clicks and keystrokes. Workflows make sense for completing tasks you often complete — say, creating a new note in Bear or adding an event in Fantastical via natural language parsing.
We’re here to highlight a few of those workflows you may not consider immediate — or even necessary — workflows to have installed via Alfred’s Powerpack. That said, these are workflows I use every day, multiple times a day, and specifically right before I’m ready to stream a movie on Netflix.

One of my biggest problems with streaming services is the temporary nature of so many playlists — while it’s enjoyable to always have something fresh to listen to, playlists are never permanent and adding tracks to your library isn’t the same as keeping the playlist intact.
Reddit has a feature called multireddits, which are like folders for subreddits you can subscribe to. I personally like to browse reddit by the categories of subreddits I’m subscribed to and multireddits are perfect for that, allowing you to group as many subreddits as you want together.
