    "Not a single day without it!"

    November 1, 2012  |   By hphbs

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 5.3.2

    Pros

    For me one of the best tools I actually have. I can't imagine working without it, I use it permanently. Even great support in case of questions - simply five stars overall!!! Keep on the good work.

    Cons

    For me no Cons. Maybe something on my personally wish list but maybe some day... ;)

    Summary

    No better way to save time and have fun.

    "And I thought I was facing a life without shortcuts!"

    September 2, 2012  |   By allboutthestory

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 5.3.2

    Pros

    After decades of relying on QuicKeys, Startly's seeming inability to recover from their setbacks and continue development of their bread-and-butter product forced me to look elsewhere. I was beginning to think that the hotkey-macro concept was dead in MacLand. After trying a lot of lightweights, I stumbled onto Keyboard Maestro. It seems to take up where QKs left off. The interface is a bit different than I'm used to, but it's relatively easy to learn and, as far as I've been able to tell, endless in its possibilities. And the developer responds super-quick to any questions.

    Cons

    At first, I thought the interface was just...un-Mac-like. But, after seeing it in action, I see it as just lean 'n mean. It throws the minimal stuff at you to let you get the job done, then gets out of the way. I get it now.

    Summary

    I DL'd it, I tried it, I bought it.

    Updated on Sep 3, 2012

    Gotta add this. I just got an e-mail from Peter, the developer, that contains, in part:

    "I will email you again in a few days with more information on getting the most out of Keyboard Maestro. In the mean time, if you need any assistance that you cannot immediately find in the documentation, please feel free to ask me."

    Follow-up? Standing by? Wow. Unheard of in this brave new "put-it-in-the-App-Store-and-forget-it-forever" world.

    "A great tool to save time and sanity!"

    March 29, 2012  |   By JimSewell

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 5.1

    Pros

    Keyboard Maestro is easy to use for beginner to expert alike. It is extremely powerful and versatile. With it you can automate almost any task with little-to-no knowledge of programming and other technical stuff. Updates are also frequent with great new features coming often.

    Cons

    The user community is not booming like I would prefer. With such a tool, forums trading great uses among members is a natural but I've not seen one.

    Summary

    This is a truly remarkable tool that anyone needing automation, from complex window moves to simple text expansion, will benefit from. Give it a try. I'm glad I did.

    "If I had to be stranded on an island w/ one Mac App..."

    October 19, 2011  |   By dudikusmaximus

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 5.0.3

    Pros

    There's a reason John Gruber at Daring Fireball has said that this app is one that "Batman would keep in his utility belt if his utility belt were a metaphor-stretched Macintosh."

    Peter at KM is super responsive, and they provide a really helpful series of email tutorials after initially signing up to help you with the learning curve.

    THis app has quickly become indispensable to the way I interact w/ my Mac.

    Cons

    Not crazy about the design aesthetic, but the genius of the app is that you rarely see it working anyway, so hardly bothers me.

    "The best Mac app out there."

    July 31, 2011  |   By bettyandmaxsboy

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 5.0.1

    Pros

    I could not get along without Keyboard Maestro. Its capabilities are way beyond my talents, but I cherish the uses I have for it (55 macros and counting). Peter is very responsive, and there are some excellent MVPs.

    Cons

    It's hard to find a quibble, but if forced, I would recommend some work on the user interface when debugging the macros.

    Summary

    Excellent, powerful, capable, stable macro system for OS X. Great support.

    "Must have for all Mac users!"

    July 18, 2011  |   By 1drummergirl

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 5.0

    Pros

    This was a fabulous find! I was looking for a hot-key app and got so much more. It saves me tons of time on a daily basis. I'm always looking for ways to use it more and save additional time.

    Cons

    It's not the most intuitive app, but the instructions are clear and the developer is very responsive!

    Summary

    Buy it. You'll wonder how you ever functioned without it.

    "The sole reason I'm finally switching to Snow Leopard"

    July 4, 2011  |   By landmark99

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 5.0

    Pros

    With the addition of conditional macros, every other macro utility might as well just fold up and go home. This is AWESOME.
    An incredible bargain, you will wonder how you ever lived without it.

    Cons

    It doesn't do my laundry. But other than that . . .

    "this changes everything!!!"

    June 27, 2011  |   By gordonpeterson

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 4.3.2

    Pros

    i can create custom shortcuts for almost anything imaginable.
    i don't rely on program specific code snippets. keyboard maestro handles everything the same across applications.
    i have it tied into my home automation system. works great!!

    Cons

    no ability to drag and drop.
    other than that the only other con i could think of is that i find myself obsessing over macros!

    Summary

    get your computer and application to work the way you want it to!
    this little application has increased my productivity more than any other application I have installed on my computer.
    because it can interface with any application on my computer, i would say i use this program more than any other program on my mac.
    I LOVE IT.

    "Fast, clever, fabulous"

    September 21, 2010  |   By yiparaki

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 4.3.2

    Pros

    I am stuck using Lotus Notes at work but use a Mac rather than Windows. Still, even on a Mac, Lotus Notes is not famous for its beauty or usability. I bought it within 4 mins of trying it, after setting up simple but great macros. Made life easy.

    Cons

    No cons. Seriously. This is wonderful. :-)

    Summary

    Wonderful application, highly recommended. It will make you wonder how you lived without it.

    "Brilliant timesaver; a must have."

    September 9, 2010  |   By landmark99

    Version: Keyboard Maestro 4.3.2

    Pros

    extremely versatile
    lovely interface
    saves lots of time
    macros are easy to create
    the developer is very communicative and responsive to input

    Cons

    Although you'll start using this right away, It may take time to realize just how <i>powerful</i> this program can be.

    Summary

    If you own a mac, then you should buy this. It's a very reasonable price, has a nice support community on yahoo, and will make you smile every time you create a keyboard shortcut that automates your mac.
