Editors' Review


Keyboard shortcuts don't just save you time, they're also good for you. Using shortcuts is one of the easiest ways to wean yourself from your mouse and cut down on repetitive strain injuries in your hands and wrists. So any app like KeyCue that can help you learn new shortcuts and remember old ones is worth a look.

KeyCue is a very simple app; you just hold down the command key (or any key combination you choose), and KeyCue instantly displays a clear, clickable menu of all the shortcuts currently available in the application you're using.

KeyCue comes with many variations and preferences (everything from different menu themes to the ability to change the pop-up menu time delay), but the instant shortcut menu is its core functionality. If you also use the macro-program Keyboard Maestro, KeyCue is even more useful, as it will display the shortcuts for all your predefined macros as well. The only major strike against KeyCue is its price, which might be too high for some users given the app's narrow functionality.

 |  Version: KeyCue 6.1


Quick, complete, and very useful overview of all shortcuts for an app, beautifully visualized in a grid format. Perfect for learning and choosing keyboard shortcuts.


None. Really works well.


Using it daily for years and still loving it.

"Another Great Ergonis Product"

April 11, 2012  |  By tostoba

 |  Version: KeyCue 6.1


Great product.
Easy to use.
Works in the background.
Easy updates, and low pricing.


None. The program works as expected


KeyCue 6.1 is the most recent addition to my stable of Ergonis products, and there is no doubt the quality of this latest update is superior. I am thoroughly impressed by the clean interface, smooth execution of commands, and the ease of updating that has long characterized this company's efforts to stay on the cutting edge of constantly evolving technology.

What I like best about the products is their seamless integration with Mac OS X, and the careful attention paid to the need for them to function correctly, and work in the background thus eliminating the need to "activate" them in any complicated manner.

Kudos to the design team. You have outdone yourselves in this version. But, more importantly, the ease with which your company provides updates coupled with the low cost, makes it #1 on my list of preferred software companies. Congratulations!
