Alfred Extensions for Volume Eject & Internet Sharing!

Alfred is the go-to app for me. It does the job from opening 5 websites to tweeting, from controlling iTunes to opening folders using shortcut. Thanks to many developers who create extensions to make it more simple.

I have made two extensions – Unmount Disk & Internet sharing.

Unmounting:

Internet Sharing Alfred Extension

Some Crap about why I did this app!

My two years of education in Singapore made me heavily dependent on Wi-fi. Where ever I went, I never had the trouble of finding wi fi spots. Either SingTel would give me one or McD had one, Starbucks, in my Uni, in my house everywhere had a wi-fi.

After my studies there, I returned to India to work in our family business. That too in a town like Virudhunagar. No wifi. I had to use my mobile net which sucks! 3G is not even launched here when they say iPhone might get to 4G. Living in 2G sucks.
