From description it looks pretty good and robust. However - the interface is Spartan, doesn't tell you much, the navigation confusing, the error messages confusing and bad translation to English. It disabled my keyboard / froze, no key was working. Mouse OK. Wanted to uninstall - I can't. The app installs a kernel hook and no way to terminate it because it keeps coming back. Using uninstall from the application menu doesn't work because the keyboard can't type password for uninstall.
Wen't to reboot - of course I can't type password into login screen either.
Well .. here we go again, I thought. Had to boot of USB key and search and delete all files for this app.
I can't recommend this software. Be careful.
My specs are 10.6.8.
As I understand there is a new version of 10.7 and 10.8.
This doesn't excuse to have a working version of 10.6 at least. I wouldn't touch it again.
There are many other apps with similar functionality on Macupdate or App store.
Just take a look first before making selection.

Not bad at all. Works as advertised.

Please consider lower asking price. It is a bit steep imo

How much worth paying would you think about this?

KeyBoardLauncherX is using Apple Event Architecture.
Let me explain the usage as an example of my case.
Create a HotKey (option+C) to launch "CotEditor.app".
And create other HotKey(control+C) to launch "Contribute.app".
When double-click on a.html, Safari.app starts and open a.html by Safari.app.
If select a.html by mouse and type option+C+C, CotEditor.app starts and open a.html by CotEditor.app.Or when type control+C+C, "Contribute.app" starts and open a.html by Contribute.app.
It is very convenient function for me.
