I just switched from QuicKeys due to its lack of updates for the past four years as well as its uncertain future. I'm extremely happy with Keyboard Maestro. It actually does more than QuicKeys--and costs less. It does things a little differently than QuicKeys. However, I recreated about 75 shortcuts/macros and they function exactly as they did in QuicKeys. Well, not exactly. They function *better* in Keyboard Maestro. There aren't the little bugs and gotchas with Keyboard Maestro. I highly recommend this app--especially for QuicKeys users.

The support i received from Peter was first class. I had a thorough explanation of a problem i posed in a very friendly manner. Peter's explanation was very easy for me to follow. It is great to see such support for a very powerful piece of software.

I upgraded with closed eyes! The reason is that I had engineered a macro that could make me see even through my shut eyes! Don’t believe it?! Well, I might have exaggerated a bit but Keyboard Maestro is so powerful that it’s not difficult to imagine it working such miracles! Software engineering at its best for whatever complexity you throw at it. Can’t recommend it enough. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

I've been using Keyboard Maestro since Version 5, and at this point I have about 400 macros. A few of them are pretty complicated, but most of them provide keystrokes for simple things that I do very frequently. I don't know how I could live without it.

Ive been using this extension for 4 years. I always felt that I do not use it to its full potential and that it is my fault somehow. But the truth is the ux of this extension is hideous here is an example that brought me finally here https://i.imgur.com/jS54V56.png (script on screen does not work) I want to execute custom shell script with text input but there is no way to know how to get that text input. After 30 min of trying everything I could find or remember I started googling... https://wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/action/Execute_a_Shell_Script?s[]=kmvar&s[]=input documentation is written by aliens for aliens and ofcourse does not solve my problem. I want to say that this app saved me a lot of time over the years but the truth is it created more problems than it solved. :(

Keyboard Maestro is an UNBELIEVABLY helpful software since years for me. It is updated again and again and worth every penny! I have been able to automate even highly complex workflows, and so Keyboard Maestro has been saving me a lot of time for years now. Besides, there is a user forum which is perfectly maintained and always offers inspiring solutions. Keyboard Maestro is undoubtedly one of the most significant additions for everyone who works professionally with their Mac.

KeyboardMaestro is maybe the one app that I could not do without. We all have our preferences about software we like, but KeyboardMaestro just works, works well, and is advanced and complex and at the same time, is very approachable. I have dabbled in AppleScript and love it - hate it. I love what it does, but I hate trying to understand it’s logic. Javascript s also very useful and easier on my brain to understand than AppleScript. I mention this here because the reasons I sometimes am drawn to seeking a solution for something is because I want my mac to behave in a way that I want it to behave and not so much because I think like a programmer. KeyboardMaestro fits the bill. It can do so many things - including run all your applescripts. It is a virtual Swiss Army knife for doing just about anything you want on a Mac. Only it is better. With a Swiss Army knife you don't get a locking blade and, it’s a bit light weight for real day to day utility in a pocket knife. Not so with KeyboardMaestro. It takes a little understanding to figure out a solution at times, but the forums on KeyboardMaestro have always weighed-in quickly with solutions to my questions. Sometimes an app wont open as I think it should with certain conditions or windows ready when I open it. Keyboard Maestro can read an apps menus so with a one key macro I can tell my apps to open as I want them, resize windows, and so much more. I can highly recommend this app. In case anyone hasn’t taken the plunge, it is a great app for doing any sort of customization to your mac.
