When you use Liquid | Flow, commands become so quick you'll start flying through your information - you will work at the speed of thought, not at the speed of hunting for icons to click. Have a look at to see a video demonstration to learn more about how powerfully easy it is to use.

Note: Click on the ‘gears’ icon on the right in Liquid | Flow to access the Preferences.

Customise Keyboard Shortcut:

To change the Keyboard Shortcut to the more convenient command-space (or anything else you prefer), open System Preferences, click on Keyboard, make sure you are in the Shortcuts tab, then, in the column on the left:

1) Click on Spotlight and disable command-space
2) Click on Services and scroll down to Liquid and double-click on the current Liquid shortcut, then set it to be command-space (or whatever you prefer).

Upgrading to Pro (In-App) gives you the ability to translate and to add your own custom searches.

Thank you and please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions or comments:

Letters. Words. Sentences. Paragraphs. Page after page of words on the internet, cluttering my computer, my mind, and my day. How are they all connected? What do they all mean?


If I were faced with the task of teaching someone, who had never used a electronic device what the internet does and is capable of I would begin by introducing them to Liquid.

“Well, what do I do if I want to, and what is, and how do you, and what does all this mean …?”

They can all be answered with a few taps and Liquid.

I have a socket wrench. I use different attachments on it: standard, metric, extensions, and so forth. The wrench is something I can fit tools to helping me implement useful tasks I engage in, which enliven myself and others.

Liquid is something I use in expressing thoughts I have in a clear and meaningful way to myself and others.

Very easy to get the hang of.
Lovely to look at and use.

That Apple hasn’t appropriated and absorbed the principles in Liquid as standard features remains a mystery. Probably because the development of Liquid continues to evolve into greater, more expansive usefulness which only a loving crafter might devote to a masterpiece.

Liquid is a work of devoted love for communication, computers, words, and in the end the customer using this brilliant software.

Liquid Should Live on Everyone’s Desktop


Liquid has the elegance that Apple applications once boasted, lives unobtrusively on your menu bar, and comes to your rescue whenever you need to search anything—articles, websites, your own email and files—and anything online. Simply select specific text you want to search, then use Liquid to conduct a comprehensive search for websites, reference sites, or even to convert data (temperatures, currencies, power) or to even to translate from a language you select to another. Click on the “Settings” and Liquid’s streamlined interface swivels back to front to let you customize your preferences for searching or references with specific keystrokes.

If you’ve bemoaned how poor Apple email and Spotlight searches have become to, say, the accuracy of searches pre-OS X, just buy Liquid—it’s less than a latte and you’ll use it every day. Except you just buy it once. A lifesaver.



Liquid and TextExpander are two apps that have totally revolutionized my workflow. My only suggestion is to offer some way for users to share additional search or reference link configurations that they have found to be useful. This app has worked flawlessly for me. Any thought of making an iOS version for my iPad??
