Keyboard Maestro for Mac is a powerful program designed to let you create and manage macros to carry out all kinds of tasks you specify. The options for what you can automate are vast; and even if you don't have experience working with this type of program, there's a helpful tutorial to walk you through the process.


Lots of options: There are few limitations on what you can do and what types of tasks you can automate with this program. Whether you want to open folders with keyboard shortcuts or manage multiple clipboards simultaneously, you can do it all through this versatile program.

Good tutorial: The tutorial that's offered when you initially open the app provides a good introduction to the program's basic functions. It guides you through the process of creating your own basic macro, so you can start to get a feel for where things are and what they look like.


Average interface: This app has a functional interface that gives you all the tools you need to complete whatever tasks you choose. But it isn't immediately approachable for users with no experience with this type of program. The tutorial walks you through the process of creating one basic macro, but novice users will likely need more help than that to unlock all of the app's potential.

Bottom Line

Keyboard Maestro is a great application, especially if you like to use automated processes to carry out tasks as you're working. The free trial has few limitations, and really lets you explore the program's capabilities. If you decide to invest in the full version of this app, the cost is $36.
