This app made going from Windows to Mac SO MUCH easier. It has also made learning to work all apps more efficiently very easy.

This could be 5-star useful, but the only way it can be activated -- by holding down the Command Key -- is exactly the same as the only way you can see the path to a file in Spotlight. Granted, this is a inexcusable -- stupid, really -- deficiency in Spotlight, and has been for years; but it renders CheatSheet unusable for me. If I want to see a path in Spotlight, I don't need the distraction of CheatSheet popping itself up in the background. The solution would be for CheatSheet's activation keys to be configurable, or at the very least, something that doesn't overlap with a function already built in to macOS. Is that really so hard to do? And yes, it's a simple program in conception, but there is almost no documentation and almost no user interface, which is inexcusable. You can't quit the program with Command-Q, which violates one of the oldest interface conventions in Mac history. Yes, if you go to the vendor's website support page, and find the FAQs, they tell you how to do it. Is it that hard to inform the user through the program's interface? By the way, to quit the program: "Hold the ⌘-Key until the window appears. Then use the gear button bottom right of the window to quit CheatSheet." There's no uninstaller (and once again, no documentation explaining how) so if you do want to uninstall, I suggest using iTrash or something similar. There are a half-dozen or so auxiliary files that need to be removed in addition to the application itself. Yes, it's free, but sometimes you get what you pay for. -SB

Great app. It's free, it works flawlessly, and it has more shortcuts than similar apps. I love this and often use it.

It's a nice idea but the command shortcut doesn't work for me… I always end up triggering it accidentally even with a long delay. And you can't change it.

Because it was a concern for me, AFG (?) left a very helpful note 4 years ago: Find user-facing controls in the bottom right corner of your Cheatsheet ;-) The small gear gives you preferences.

Love the idea, butCheatSheet seems to only recognize shortcuts listed in the menus (leaving out 75% of the shortcuts in Excel, for example) — and shortcuts listed the Menus can be found faster by typing the function you want into the Help menu.

I read about this little app being a useful tool. I find it quite handy and recommend it for power-users who like to keep their hands on the keyboard instead of the mouse. I give it 5 stars and have a few thoughts to add.

1 - it auto-adds itself to the items that start at login. This goes against my grain as I feel this is an intrusion. I prefer to only run it when using a complete app like Photoshop v13 (not cloud based!) or GraphicConverter.
2 - no configuration interface: At times I rest my thumb on the Command key while thinking of what keystroke to do next and boing - the shortcut list pops up. I'd like to have control over both the choice of key(s) and the time it takes to pop-up.
3 - no way to QUIT it when I'm done.

Perhaps I'm overlooking something? Anyway great free app.

Useful tool, especially for work with graphical redactors. Hopefully it will be compatible with Sierra.
