Versions — Copy Version Information for Applications and Operating Systems

Recommended Posts

If you do any bug reporting, you may know what a pain it is to get version information for the application in question. Usually, it means going to the 'About' menu and copying version information from there.


This workflow lets you copy and paste version information with a few keystrokes. The keyword is 'version'.


Download • Packal (Beta)


Example outputs:

  • Alfred 2 v2.1.1 (227) on Mac OS X 10.9.1 (13B42)
  • Safari v7.0.1 (9537.73.11)
  • Mac OS X 10.9.1 (13B42)


You can get version information for:

  • The current application
  • Any application on your disk
  • Your operating system


There are also several choices when retrieving the information:

  • When dealing with application or OS info:
    • Command: Copy and paste immediately
  • When dealing with application info:
    • Option: Copy with OS information
    • Control: Copy with OS information and paste immediately


Here's what it looks like:



Enjoy :)
