Very nice app to facilitate operating computer. I didn't think the app would become one of the most useful apps on my mac. I'm glad it's free.

I was looking for something like this for a long time. Shortcat helped me to work with my computer much faster using my keyboard more. This app is good for fast typists as well as novices who would like to improve their typing skills. Thumbs up!

Since switching to Mac from Windows some 7 years ago I'm still looking for ways to get me using the keyboard more instead of the mouse, but without configuring all kinds of shortcuts myself AND without the need to remember all sorts of unlogical key-combinations. A few weeks ago I started using KeyCue instead of the free Cheatsheet, but today I found Shortcat! After a few hours testdriving it I like it very much. A completely different approach from what I am used to with others apps I tested but very, very much what I was looking for. >No need to configure shortcuts >No need to remember shortcuts >Easy activate around everything I see on my desktop I can't say anything about stability yet, so will use the beta for free the coming period. The future price seems to gonna be quite high for a one-trick utility, though. So my rating for now is only based on the functionality and the free price for the beta.
