I just switched from QuicKeys due to its lack of updates for the past four years as well as its uncertain future.

I'm extremely happy with Keyboard Maestro. It actually does more than QuicKeys--and costs less. It does things a little more...

Great product. Makes my life easier everyday. Inexpensive for what it does.

When I arrive at my Mac in the morning, all my news websites are there waiting for me. Simple hot-keys or palette selections save me lots of time through out the day. I've only used it a few weeks and already feel that it is indispensable. If you try it, you'll likely buy it.

Seeing Quickeys is living on borrowed time, I decided to try Keyboard Maestro and am glad I did! It's stable, does basically the same things (in different ways) and Peter Lewis, the developer is every helpful. The main differences are you don't exclude individual apps from KM, but rather create a Macro Group containing those apps and exclude the group. Also, there is not a Sticky Key option (a string of hot keys strung together to open an app/folder or perform a function) as in QK, but rather you use the same keyboard shortcut for different apps/folders/functions and KM presents a pallet you can click on to get to your desired response. Great app!

Others have commented on how amazingly useful KM is, and I agree, but I'd like to comment on the incredible support available. I've asked for helping in accomplishing a task, and almost immediately received detailed, user-friendly, non-technical advice on how to do it. For this program I don't want to give stars; I want to give galaxies. Highly recommended on all counts.

I do agree with all positive comments here especially with those who migrated to “Keyboard Maestro” after the golden age of Quickeys came to an abrupt end. I was also a fan of Quickeys and when the inevitable hit I was desperate to find a valid substitution. I’m glad that Keyboard Maestro is indeed a suitable program that not only filled the gap Quickeys had left but proved to be even more intuitive and functional than its good old rival. I use it in my office to automate the annoying repetitive data-filling procedures and haven’t so far experienced any issue with it. If you care for your wrists and why not - your mental sanity, then this product is tailor-made for you. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

After I have been a user of Quickeys for many years, I was very disappointed of not having an update since 2009, and I observed that some functions did not work with Mavericks.
Happily I found Keyboard Maestro… and, as they say, I have “finally seen the light“ ! It is a very intuitive software, very easy to use (even for a French !), and I am happy to use again my familiar shortcuts.
Moreover, it is almost half the price of Quickeys.
So, do not hesitate to become a “Quickeys refugee“, as I was welcome by the Stairways team.

I just started using KM to replace the now defunct iKey and wish I had done so sooner. It can do all the same functions and is much easier to use. Bravo Maestro!

Ever the optimist, I wrote to Startly, asking them to consider upgrading QK. No reply at all. For me, QK is dead and gone. I have since moved on, read the KM manual and found just how easy to set up macro's are using their slightly different system. Two hours last evening and all 30 macro's are now recreated in KM and are working at blazing speed. Highly recommended to all who want to automate their system

New Year, New Direction. After contacting the author of KM and negotiating a very reasonable crossgrade from Quickeys, the divorce is over. After four years of unresponsiveness and continual headaches, I have "taken a new wife" who is quick to communicate, responsive to my every need and no headaches. End of an era for me, the only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.

As a very long time user of Quickeys, since OS 7, it occurs to me that there must be very many QK users who could be persuaded to switch to KM if the Author was generous enough to offer a crossgrade price for QK 4 license holders. I for one would be persuaded.

I really can't say enough good things about this product. I've used many macro facilities over many years, including extensive use of the defunct QuicKeys. Earlier versions of Keyboard Maestro seemed to be lacking some capabilities I felt I needed, but this version has everything I could imagine wanting and a lot more. I wish I had made the transition from QuicKeys earlier. (The transition was a little rocky at first, but with the developer's help I came to understand Keyboard Maestro's world view). This software's features are astounding in breadth, depth, and elegance. The editor interface is stunning, with many subtle innovations. Support from the developer is amazingly prompt and thorough, including answering questions about how to do things or do them better. Some of my suggestions and fixes for problems I reported found their way into the next minor release a short time later. A great deal of information is provided in Keyboard Maestro's documentation, mailing list, and Wiki. This is far more than a keystroke macro facility -- it is a fully-featured automation tool. There is nothing out there that comes even close.
