Automator, developed by Apple Inc., is designed for all levels of users, from novice to expert. Automator makes performing time consuming and repetitive tasks in Mac OS X a snap! The basic unit for automation in Automator is called an action, and each action is responsible for performing a single specific task. Using Automator's interface, users can link actions together in infinite ways to form a complete workflow that matches their unique needs. Hundreds of actions are included with Automator for performing tasks in Apple applications and the operating system itself. This list can be expanded with actions made available by developers.
