Create New File in Finder. A script for Alfred App

I am constantly bothered by the lack of a "new file" option in the Mac OS Finder. None of the scripts I found on the web were that great, and they were often quite slow. So I whipped up this little Alfred extension. It creates a new file in the most recent or currently active finder window, and selects it ready to be renamed.

A new file created in the Finder using Alfred App.

All you have to do is open the folder to use, and call "newfile" in Alfred. Simple!

I'm going to refine it a little more, but for now it does the job just fine. Feel free to download it, and tweak it as you wish. If you do update the script though, please post the changes to the comments so that everyone can make use of them.
