No frills, no muss, no fuss. Just needed something to open an app, enter my login credentials and create it in a way I can edit (as my password changes every 60 days). This did the trick. Now that I have it I am sure I will be using it to do other repetitive/semi-tedious stuff. Nice piece of work.

Just what I needed

Keyboard Maestro, Hazel and others had too many features I was never to use. For my dull repetitive Mail funtions, this software did it just right! Thank you

Replacement for Quickeys

Quickeys broke with Lion, and so far with no upgrade. Realistically, I used pretty simple macros, much of the power of QK2 was wasted on me. I'd heard of Simplekeys in the past and bumped into it here in the App store. This is just the ticket for me! It does just what I need it to do; open a URL, enter the logon information. Boom. Done. I'm a happy man. Only $15 bucks, too! Thanks, Pidog!
