    "What a mess"

    April 3, 2012  |   By geneb5

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.7

    Pros

    Gets the date quickey right.

    Cons

    1. Can't even do a simple menu choice without forcing you to tinker endlessly with its arcane, unintelligible process. It was so quick and simple with 9.2, but OSX seems to have completely flummoxed them.

    2. Can't use it on your desktop if your laptop is connected. Sends up an alert that takes 3 keystrokes to get rid of. Even after you've quick the program on the laptop, it KEEPS sending at least 2 more alerts.

    Summary

    It uses a nonworking process that is utter gibberish. I used to love it; now I HATE it.

    "Forget this company"

    July 21, 2011  |   By StevenFrank

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.7

    Pros

    Great product before LION

    Cons

    Doesn't work with LION

    Summary

    Arrogant forum admins. Deleted 2 messages of mine and was told if my attitude didn't improve they would delete my account.
    They seem to have been completely blindsided by Lion.
    It appears they just don't care.
    I bought iKey. Works with Lion right off.
    I am done with Startly and Quickeys.

    "Good product - major caveat!"

    February 9, 2010  |   By standubin5

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.7

    Pros

    has a wide variety of short cuts. All work reasonably well.

    Cons

    If you're using the software on your desktop & laptop, you won't be able to have both computers running on your network without going back to Quickeys and buying a second activation key. This was not communicated prior to purchase.

    "It's hard to live without this great program!"

    January 8, 2010  |   By JR LaGourgue

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.7

    Pros

    QuicKeys makes long routines a snap by watching what you do and then automating all the steps.

    Cons

    No complaints, except maybe it's a bit pricey. Pricey or not, I need it.

    "When you need automation software, this is it."

    December 2, 2009  |   By jimcobber

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.5

    Pros

    Graphical interface that walks you through your macro creations in a logical fashion.

    Cons

    Probably the ugliest product icon in software history. "Watch me" macros are usually very ugly, tracking and adding every mouse move and mistake. Can take a long time to clean one up.

    Summary

    Quickeys keeps improving and updating this product. They tend to charge for major updates, and I tend to purchase them because it pays for itself. So, after purchasing Quickeys a dozen times or so, I can say it is the best product of its kind for OS X. I'm not an applescript wonk, nor can I get much done with Automator. And it's kind of fun doing QK macros, once you get the hang of the flow. If you are used to the Mac version, you won't be very happy with the Windows version.

    "I've used it for 20+ years."

    October 30, 2009  |   By bassisland--2008

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.5

    Pros

    I can't imagine life without QuicKeys now. It's fast and I get to make up key combinations that work for me. I love being able to instantly type often-used words or word combinations, like "Los Angeles" or "By the way", or my address. QK rocks.

    Cons

    I have no issues with QK.

    Summary

    It saves me incredible amounts of time and it's completely adaptable to my way of thinking. I love having key combinations for complicated passwords and addresses. QK types them instantly. This is the one product I can't do without, and I've been using it for over twenty years. Great support, too.

    "QuicKeys is the Real Deal"

    October 14, 2009  |   By dashard

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I felt obliged to offer my review -- after being a QuicKeys user since 1992 or so -- to try to counterbalance the unfathomable negative reviews. There can be no mere "difference of opinion," and chowhound is correct: those unfairly posting low ratings have either a) not actually used the software, b) not the mental capacity to use the software, or c) an agenda.

    I currently have 406 shortcuts established. Many of those are tied to keystrokes. Many are set to trigger at a particular time, or after a particular event (whenever the Music volume mounts run a sync of my iTunes Library files -- easy to set up, in case you're wondering), and many are set to work only within the scope of a particular application (determine what "Cmd-Shift-S" does on a per-application basis), etc.

    It's indispensable, insanely powerful, and absurdly easy considering the power you're harnessing.

    Buy it. Play with it. If you're still not sure, RTFM (though you will likely not need to until/unless you want the more advanced stuff.)

    Quicksilver's great. It's *not* a replacement. I use them both, and Quicksilver *only* for very specific things (such as it's ability to chain events and perhaps show me a dialog of a custom message after a particular delay.)

    Otherwise, it's QuicKeys 250 times a day for me. Sitting at a computer that does not have QuicKeys (and more specifically my shortcuts) installed makes me wonder how I could possibly get along without it. It's that good and that indispensable.

    10 stars, no joke.

    "Must-Have Software"

    September 16, 2009  |   By Chowman

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Quickeys was great in the days before OS X, sucked for a couple of years while it caught up, and is now terrific again. It suffers unfairly from low reviews here from people who 1. haven't noticed it got good again, 2. haven't taken time to learn to use the program (there's a learning curve), and/or 3. are shilling to promote other applications.

    Re: that last, anyone who says "XXX does the same only cheaper" is lying. Quickeys is unique. There's nothing out there with even close to its power.

    If there's anything repetitive (really, just about ANYTHING) you find yourself doing on a Mac, this program will turn it into a painless macro. I wish I could use it to automate my entire life!

    does what I need, and more; price is fair; rating should be higher than 3.2 (IMO)

    "Worth 6 stars to me"

    July 14, 2009  |   By robfol

    Version: QuicKeys X 4.0.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    As others have said, QC is the first thing I install on a new machine. Invaluable time-save day in and day out. 4.0 is a good upgrade
