MLH Software released their Amplify utility earlier this year and recently updated it with some solid improvements. I did not really warm up to it when it first came out but James’s review made me try it again and I think I may get hooked. Amplify simply lets you set a keyboard or hotkey shortcut to pop up an informational window with some key info. Imagine being able to quickly see your upcoming calendar items or create a task by simply pulling down an info bar using a shortcut.
You may think this concept seems familiar and you will be right since Amplify was created to mimic the notification bar on the PlayBook. You can also extend it by creating hotkeys for different functions. They also have a 15 day free trial after which you can upgrade the app using in app purchase or still use it for just the time.
