Review: CheatSheet gives users instant access to hundreds of hot keys

Access hot keys for nearly any program on Mac without having to remember all of them using CheatSheet for Mac.

CheatSheet for Mac enables users to have a virtual encyclopedia of hot keys right at their fingertips. Every program on a Mac includes anywhere from a few to dozens of these hot keys, and this app provides them in menu form so that users are not forced to remember them.

Installation of the application was quite easy. Once you open the program to run, it not only lets you know if there are changes you need to make to your settings, but also it opens a window linking right to the appropriate place in System Preferences. Many amateur users, for whom this product is especially useful, will find this step in the installation invaluable. Once CheatSheet for Mac has been installed, it worked with every program that we tested, and did so seamlessly. By merely holding down the Command key when a program is open, this application will populate a list of many of the available hot keys. You don't have to memorize them, though, as each hot key listing is actually also a link to the function. Click on what you want performed, and the application takes you right to that function. Even though it did miss just a few hot keys, almost every essential one is there.

Ultimately, CheatSheet for Mac is a great application, and would be very useful for anyone just learning their way around a Mac or anyone who has a ton of hot keys to remember.
