The best part about writing a blog where I talk about Macs? People give me some great tips in the comments and yesterday’s post on apps for making users more productive was no exception. While I love the shortcuts available on my Mac I often overlook many of them because I don’t know what they are and they aren’t always obvious.
Fortunately DCBrit stopped by and mentioned KeyCue, an application that can quickly display all of the keyboard shortcuts for the application you are currently running. You simply hold down the activation key (defaults to Command) for a few seconds and up pops a dynamically built list of all the shortcuts for that application. Here’s what it looks like for TextEdit:
It really is a simple application but can quickly help you learn those key combinations, making you much more productive on your Mac. It’s normally $26.99 but MacZOT is running a special on it right now for $14.99 through May 3, 2009.
If you want to learn all of the keystroke combinations available for your applications I recommend you give KeyCue a try.
