Ratings and Reviews
MS Office Suite missing… still
Thanks for the Maverick update. This app is very useful, but the one thing missing is the list of shortcuts for Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, Power Point). That would surely improve this app to a five star app!!!
Useful but needs a few more shortcuts
There are certainly plenty of useful shortcuts that even I didn't know, however I really wish it had a feature to add shortcuts to the list as you learn them.
For example, there are 2 shortcuts that I used to find VERY helpful but over time I forgot them and then when the aluminum keyboard came out they became slightly harder to use.
Control + F2 (Now Control + Fn + F2): Move focus to the finder bar - places keyboard focus on the apple menu where you can arrow through all the menus on the finder bar.
Control + F3 (Now Control + Fn + F3): Move focus to the Dock - places keyboard focus on the Dock so you can arrow through app icons on your dock. Pressing Space or Return on a dock icon launches the app.
Command + D: Don't Save - When you have a the [ (Don't Save) (Cancel) (Save) ] box up, you can quickly choose not to save using this shortcut, save is Return by default, and esc cancels.
These shortcuts would be a welcome addition. But for $0.99 the app is still worth it, especially if you aren't keyboard savvy.
Many of the shortcuts are wrong
I used several shortcut and they were wrong, like cntl up arrow did not do anything. The beauty of a tool like this is its 100% accuracy. Its either all correct or its useless.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
