I spend the majority of my time now doing flashcards with Anki/osmosis...so I was looking for something I could setup some commands for flash card mode so I can stare at my laptop a little farther away for long periods of time. Eye strain and all that. Other apps couldn’t get all the commands I wanted in or were awkward to use. This is exactly what I was looking for! Works great!
I do get a lot of weird looks in the library when I do this because I keep my phone down and it looks like I’m controlling it with my mind so thanks for making it look like I have superpowers ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I’m a college professor teaching iOS development.
And I love this app. I was looking for something to help me control keynotes full of embedded coding video snippets and the modularity of this app has saved me days of work trying to make this myself.
If you don’t know, presentation remotes never have all of the right key combos for more than the simplest slide shows. This allows you to basically make your own fully customizable Mac remote for useful key presses.

You just made my day :) Thanks!
I love this app! And all the apps by this company. I work in data entry and one of the biggest problems with working from home is that my laptop doesn’t have a number pad. Using the numbers across the top of the keyboard takes 3x longer than a number pad, so this app saved my life! It registers the input just as fast as a real number pad, and the app is wayyyyy cheaper than buying an external keyboard.
