Editors' Review


Research has shown that frequent use of a computer mouse may contribute to repetitive motion injuries. KeyCue for Mac claims to teach users how to replace the mouse with keyboard shortcuts, but its limited functionality and its price make it less useful than it could have been.

A 30-day free trial version of KeyCue for Mac is available, but it costs $29.99 for the full version. The program downloads quickly but despite having its own installer, proved difficult to set up. We had to try the installation several times due to the program claiming it could not install while it was open. This was a strange error since the installer was the only version of it running at the time. In addition to having to activate keyboard assist in the control panel, the program prompts the user to sign in to all network computers not only during the installation, but throughout its operation. Ergonis Software offers support by e-mail, but we didn't try this. As for the program itself, the only evidence that it was running was a small icon at the top of the Mac screen. Clicking the icon brought up a keyboard shortcut list, but any additional functions were not obvious. Instructions would have been helpful since any additional features were not apparent from cycling through the options.

While KeyCue for Mac lists keyboard shortcuts in an easy-to-see way, its full version price and failure to provide additional features make it less attractive.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of KeyCue for Mac 6.4.

"Ergonis is does it again. ? thank you."

April 22, 2015

 |  Version: KeyCue 7.5


Seamless integration with Yosemite.
Extremely helpful, especially for apps lacking keyboard shortcuts


None in my experience with the product.


Thank you for the recent update of Keycue. I appreciate your due diligence to improve an already great product. I use an audio editing app that has very few shortcuts. To activate commands requires the use of mouse and pull down menu actions. Using KeyCue, I have assigned shortcuts to my most commonly used commands. Now, I have a program that works at my speed. This is probably an obvious use for your product but it has really helped me in my work as an audio editor for my church.
