TypeSaver for Mac

Developer's Description

Have you ever crashed after typing for an hour and forgot to save your work? Well, I have! I was tired of losing my work and forgetting to save periodically, so, I created TypeSaver. It's a very simple program. Just drop TypeSaver into the Control Panels folder and restart. Now, every key you press (you can define which keys to save or ignore) will be saved to a file after a specified number of keystrokes (from 10 to 1000). This is an excellent way to make sure you won't lose any typing because of a crash or an easy way to keep track of what other people are doing on your computer when you're not around! The folder that contains the file(s) that the keystrokes are saved to can be hidden and this control panel can be locked and password protected if you wish.

Another handy feature of TypeSaver is the ability to auto-save documents in any application after a specified number of keystrokes or mouse clicks.
