Alfred 1

Alfred 1 is a legacy version of Alfred, which has been superseded by Alfred 2 and Alfred 3 since. It is no longer supported or available for download.

Upgrading to Alfred 3

Alfred 3 was released on 18 May 2016, and is the current and supported version of Alfred.

You can upgrade to Alfred 3 at a discount using your Alfred 1 license, but please note that there is no migration path for your Alfred 1 settings, as Alfred 3 is vastly different and much more powerful than Alfred 1.

Upgrade your Alfred 1 Single User or Family license to Alfred 3 at a discount, by entering your license details here: https://www.alfredapp.com/powerpack/upgrade/

If you're a Mega Supporter license holder, you are eligible to a free upgrade, so please contact us if you're unable to locate your license. Need more license-related help? Please contact us on from your registered Powerpack email address and we'll be happy to help you.

Upgrading from the Mac App Store

The version of Alfred (1.2) available in the Mac App Store is, and has always been, free to download. As such, there are no licenses associated to this version.

Alfred 3 and the Powerpack features are only available from our website. You can download the latest version of Alfred from our website at https://alfredapp.com/ as well as purchase the Powerpack.


What is the difference between Alfred workflows and extensions?

Workflows are add-ons created for Alfred 2 and 3, while extensions were created for Alfred version 1.

V1 extensions will be marked as .alfredextension. They cannot be directly imported into Alfred 2 or Alfred 3.

Alfred 2 and Alfred 3 workflows will be marked as .alfredworkflow and can be imported directly into the latest version of Alfred.

Once created or modified, a workflow can only be imported in a version of Alfred at least as current as the one used to create it. In other words, if you create a workflow in Alfred 3, an Alfred 2 user won't be able to import it.
