Create keyboard shortcuts for your common tasks.

Overview

SimpleKeys is a complete rewrite of the popular f-key shortcut program. Now in addition to programing your function keys, SimpleKeys allows you to:

  • Execute an action with any key combination
  • Now types as fast as the recieving application can accept keystrokes
  • Create Macros by combining multiple actions under a single KeyStroke
  • Import and Export Settings
  • Supports drag and drop of shortcuts to and from the items list. This allows you to email a shortcut to a friend, or save it for later.
  • Execute AppleScripts on the files selected in the finder or using the text on the clipboard.
  • Supports all special accented characters.
  • Type text, including the date, the text on the clipboard, and any KeyCombo (e.g., Cmd-S to save a file)
  • Paste text, including the date.
  • Pause to wait for events to complete.
  • Launch a file with the default application, or with a specific application.
  • Open a URL in your default browser. PPC version also available from pidog.com

For $20 I'd recommend that people also look at Keyboard Maestro. It's a commercial program for the same price with many more features.

 According to the description, this is exactly what I have been looking for to replace an old F-Key utility that's no longer working properly for me using Mavericks 10.9.5. Unfortunately, I have not been able to expand the downloaded .dmg file I get from this site or the developer site: https://www.pidog.com/SimpleKeys/ All I get is a small warning window saying:" the following disck images couldn't be opened" Image Reason SimpleKeys2.dmg no mountable file systems OK I shall try contacting the developer at their home site for a possible solution. As of right now, I'm forced to give it a five-star rating based on what I have. read.

WOW!!! That was fast!
Within an hour of me contacting the developer, they e-mailed me a link for downloading both a .dmg and a .zip file for the latest SimpleKeys v. 2.6.4 and both opened. Many thanks for the fast reply and support...

I totally misinterpreted the "F-keys" matter here. This was due to my own personal dream: using my MacBook "fn" key as a modifier (other than Cmd, Alt, Shift and Ctrl). I know I can remap it to another modifier (at least I know i can turn "fn" into "Ctrl" key with DoubleCommand)... but this is just not what I'm seeking. Is there a way to build shortcuts to the likes of, say, "Fn+5"? I'd kill for that (or shell some bucks, more realistically). And yeah... I'm pinned to the free, excellent Spark when it comes to keyboard shortcut managers.

Simple, easy, straight forward. Great little program. I did not want to spend a lot of time setting up typing text shortcuts. With SimpleKeys I was done in no time. I had a problem with an upgrade but the developer responded in less than 24 hours with a fix.

As of version 2.5.1 this is less than half the price of Keyboard Maestro and more capable too.

The previous review has no bearing on reality. Maybe the person tried to use it for a few minutes, misunderstood some aspect, and gave up right away. I have used this app for a year ... it is a no brainer ... a snap to setup and edit ... and works flawlessly.

This app has a lot of flaws. It works only sporadically. In addition it changed a couple of the keys on my keyboard, so that whenever I type "a" it prints "q" and vice-versa. I don't think this is ready for even a beta version. Lots of work to do yet.

Effortless and fun! Very intuitive setup. Easy to program and edit. Thanks for this great app. Just remember if you have an Ibook to assign from F7 up as the others are already programmed by Apple.

Actually, if you check the 'Use the F1-F12 keys to control software features' box in the keyboard section of keyboard and mouse, you can use all the F keys. To access the hardware controlls, just hold down funtion and hit the same F key you normally would.
