Take my money, please!

I’ve always used some app or another to make keyboard shortcuts to switch among my most-used apps. I needed a new one, found this FOR FREE!? and it works FLAWLESSLY.

Can you add in-app purchases to allow tips from happy customers? Maybe the “feature” that it would unlock is a big smiley face in the preferences window. :)

Perfect execution. Flawless app. Thank you!

Simply a must have for any mac user

I use time machine a lot to jump back to previous versions of documents and stuff, and It is so nice being able to get into time machine with a key command. Really appreciate this. Super simple, slick, and didn't take 30 seconds to do what I needed, and it's free! Thanks!

Super simple and it just works! 30 seconds I had my issued solved

Love this little app! All I wanted to do was create a Keyboard shortcut to launch 1 app. Can’t do it with Mac OS (unbelievable!). This is where this app comes in. Apple should just buy and incorporate it. Tim Cook….really?!
