Helpful, but leaves me wanting a bit more...

This is a great idea for an app. I only wish it had a shot of they keyboard that would show at a glance what characters were changed when certain modifying keys were pressed (e.g., the command key, or option + command). Of course, this would only really be useful for finding special characters, but I think it'd be a great feature. (There was a great little application that used to do this: press whatever modifiers you want and the characters on a little representation of the keyboard would change accordingly.) I find the list view tedious. Nevertheless, I do appreciate that app-specific shortcuts are included.

Good Shortcut Key Reminder App

I have saved any number of shortcut key cheat-sheets, but could never find them when I needed them. I bought this app so I could easily find shortcut key combinations like the ones for screen capture. Now I can go to Quick Shortcuts in the Dock and find the shortcut I want quickly. Shortcuts are nicely organized by app with an area for favorites too.

Be Very Careful! This app doesn

I was looking for an app that would let me map keys on the keyboard. Why does the Mac make me touch the mouse for simple things!
I thought this would let me map the keys on the keyboard to do simple tasks. I didn't realize it was just a 'Help" file of keyboard shortcuts. You can find all of this information on the web (or course you have to use the mouse to click on the Safari window to open it up!)

No reason to pay $.99 for it.
