One Switch For Mac 2023 REVIEW — MacSources

4 min readApr 4

One Switch makes it easy to automate routine tasks.

Ever since Apple released Shortcuts in 2018, I’ve really enjoyed playing around with different automations that make my life easier. Just the other day, I set one up to turn off our bedroom lights, dim the bathroom lights, and turn on the Apple TV in our bedroom in preparation for bedtime. I love the ability to make parts of my life easier. This is what One Switch does. It’s a great app that provides users the option to turn different features on and off with a single digital switch in the menu bar.
