FunctionFlip

2.2.4
26 July 2015

Toggles the function keys on your MacBook.

Overview

FunctionFlip turned out to be my solution. I like the media keys on my MacBook keyboard - just not all of them. Fat-fingered that I am, I regularly skip tracks when I just want to pause. Disabling all of the keys just won't do, because I use the brightness and volume keys every day.

FunctionFlip individually controls your Macbook or Macbook Pro's function keys, turning special keys back to regular F-keys, or vice-versa.

FunctionFlip requires that "Enable access for assistive devices" be checked on the Universal Access pane in System Preferences.

I don’t want to use the media playback keys to control iTunes – accidentally fast forwarding through a song is a nuisance. But I find some of a Mac’s F key functions useful, FunctionFlip does its job perfectly, allowing me to change just those keys.

Works fine in OS X 10.10 Yosemite. If it complains about privacy settings, uninstall and reinstall shall fix the problem.

Strangely, it doesn't work properly since the OS X 10.8.5 update. I have to stop and restart it many times a day.

Have it installed for ages and it does it’s job in the background, like a purring cat. Strangely the lastest version 2.2.2 doesn’t work right on my MacBook, running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Problem is: It’s not possible to tick any of the checkboxes on or off, mouse clicks somehow don’t get registered as it seems.

What a nightmare! Installed this app thinking it would solve the loss of my function keys on my MBP. However it is UNINSTALLABLE. No matter how much I've tried this app rewrites the core ability of the Function keys and they never work the same again. I've emailed the developer at his 2 different email addresses more than a dozen times and have received absolutely no response.
