NDroid – cool freeware program launcher makes Windows fly


NDroid is a cool program launcher and search tool which speeds up repetitive tasks in Windows via a hotkey and text function. Just hit the hotkey to fire up the dialogue box, enter text in the search area and the action you want (e.g. start typing movie and you’ll get movie reviews from IMDB) and hit enter and the utility will fire up the program, website or Windows function you need.


It has a similar feel to my favourite Launchy, but goes a little further by letting you complete more complex tasks like doing a full Google search from the search box. It’s not as seamless to use as some other one click launchers, but it does seem to offer more flexibility in terms of the types of thing you can do with it. It’s one of those programs you’ll either click with immediately or consign immediately to the trash, so give it a go and see if it works for you.

 Basically nDroid is a blazing fast keyboard based application launcher. But not just that, it can open documents, play songs, open browser bookmarks, lookup web references, find torrents, do online searches, find your files .. plus a lot more. nDroid uses an open plugin based infrastructure, so anybody can add to its functionality by bringing anything to its searchable domain, and doing anything with the result, and not just launch an application.
