Various bug fixes
Big fan of the app, once you set it up.
I find this to be a very useful app to let my iPad supplement my computer during the day. However, it's a little frustrating to actually get all the actions that you want set up, because there isn't an easy way to duplicate and then adjust specific actions. Takes me quite a while to do it, but once it's there it does save me a bunch of time.
If the developers read this, I would really like it to be able to have a action set that just has all of my active applications at that moment in a grid
This is one of those Apps...
That completely changes your perspective around something you thought was so "basic", so simply familiar...
...an: "Infinite Keyboard", I could try to summarize this as, but I would be understating its capabilities... (Groups, Nesting, Subsets...)
I think the reason this app has struck me so deep, is because it affects everything I do in computers (sort of like the wheels in a car...?)
Visually, esthetically, programming, its extensive functions... I truly was not expecting such a polished First version of any app.
I'm a keyboard shortcut freak... but I have to say, this is changing how I interact, work, everything on my computer (Windows 7 just for compatibility Heads Up)
I have instantly become a fan of this App (bit too much?), but it's quite "simple", really... I can only guess what the future has for this team of Devs.
I've had this app a good while and haven't been able to figure it all out to set up. Recent up date, hoping to make it a little more easier for me but nope. For now, it will be delated.
