This does what it says on the tin, but…
I use Command-Tab frequently for application switching and find the CheatSheet activates far too often during this process. Sometimes I even have to go back to the app I just switched from to undo the CheatSheet, which defeats the purpose of Command-Tabbing in the first place. This is just the most obvious example of how CheatSheet gets in the way when you don't need it.
Also, because it has absolutely no user-facing controls, I can only quit it from Activity Monitor.
Needs a little work before it's worthy of the 5 stars jwjb offers it.

Find user-facing controls in the bottom right corner of your Cheatsheet ;-)
The small gear gives you preferences.

CheatSheet is an awesome app which allows me to quickly see all the shortcut's available within the application I am using.

No crashing on 10.8.4. Does stay open without holding the command key. Does not release RAM soon enough for my liking.

Due to my previous comments (below) about instability I'm going to have to call this unusable and give it a low rating. In my book, stability is king.

Also I did send several crash logs in an email to the developer with no reply so that's not good, even though it is a free app.

10.8.2 here and CS is crashing often. Just sent a bunch of logs to the dev so we'll see.

No reply to my email sent April 11 so I uninstalled this a few weeks ago, it was just crashing too much.

I'd recommend Key Cue for similar functionality that, last time I used it, was far more stable.

Pro: Takes up about 12MB of ram, only half as much memory as Keycue. Cleaner layout than keycue, easier on the eyes.

Con: The only configurable thing is the delay for the cheatsheet popup. Also, unusable for me because I have to hold the command key while perusing the cheatsheet. I would like an option to not disappear when the key is released.

Requires OS X 10.7...that's a FAIL for me. As of this writing, there are still more reasons NOT to install 10.7 than to "upgrade".

i don't know why it should be 10.7 only, it runs fine on 10.6.8 here, after changing minimum system value to 10.6 in its info.plist file.
Works the same as on my iMac which runs 10.8.2

MacGrobo's hack didn't work for me with ver. 1.0.3 -- the application opened, but nothing happened. And the help page provide no help to speak of; my Universal Access preference was already correctly set. This on OS 10.6.8.

With version 1.1.1 the program crashed immediately upon opening, after changing the OS minimum requirement in the info.plist file.

To be clear, I am not griping at the app or its developer. The OS requirement says 10.7+. I am only addressing MacGrobo's suggested hack for 10.6.8 users.

Unfortunately this app is only available for Mac OS 10.7+; very unpleasant to me.

click show content and open the info.plist file, then change minimum system value to 10.6, save and close. it will work just fine afterward on Snow Leo too.

This is an absolutely great product, especially for the price. I believe this will turn into one of the "must have"apps for the Mac if it proves stable and has decent support. While I see KeyCue as mentioned, having read its description, while it seems similar, $28 is a lot to pay for such an app in my book. If CheatSheet reengineed KeyCue its all right by me so long as they did not copy or steal its source code. Should their be any credible evidence of this, CheatSheet will have a direct path to my trashcan as I generally will not support the theft or use of someone else's work without permission. One thing I would like to see in it is the availability to disable it through some other means than itself as it does not show up in 'Force Quit'.

On the CheatSheet window's lower right-hand corner, click the gear icon and then select "Quit". Maybe it's a option added recently.

Thank you for the info. I had found it in some version sometime after I wrote the review If I remember there was little to no documentation with the program. Unless I missed it a 'read me' file for some of these details would help the new user.

Great app so far, but users, don't trash your 1.2 version, when you are on Mountain Lion:
CheatSheet 1.2.1 don't work for me there, it just keeps asking to activate universal access although it is...

I guess they're already working on it.
Ironically, for me, 1.0.3 introduced an issue with Cmd-Tab, appearing too often too early.

And yes, I filed a bug report – well this sentence – with the devs.
