Say hello to Button, the best shortcuts app ever.

Is productivity important to you? If so, then you've come to the right place. If you don't already know, there's a special set of tools for every app that lets you get MORE done in LESS time. They're called shortcuts. However, finding shortcuts can be a distraction from your workflow. That's why I created Button.

Button is the first and only app that delivers you the shortcuts you need the instant you need them. Just double tap the command key, and Button will appear from the menu bar with all of the shortcuts for your current app. Start typing to search for something specific, or browse through the curated categories to learn something new.

Want to learn how to copy a screenshot to your clipboard? Button. How about autofilling your login info on Safari? Button. If you can think of it, chances are you can do it better with Button's help.

For all of you professionals out there, I didn't forget about you. Button not only includes must-have shortcuts for simple apps like Finder and Chrome, Button also has shortcuts for professional apps like Photoshop and Word. There's even more shortcut packs on the way.

If you've made it this far, congratulations. You've reached the best part. Because if you don't see your favorite app's shortcuts in Button, you need not lose hope. Let me know what it is in the reviews, and I'll do my best to include it in a future update.

Letter from the dev:
So after releasing the previous two versions, I came across bugs pretty quickly. This version was meticulously tested to make it as bug-free as possible on both macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). If you happen to come across a sneaky bug that made it through my rigorous debugging efforts, please let me know and you will be dutifully rewarded. Thank you so much for your ongoing support!

promising app

this app is well designed and easy to use. The supported apps are limited, and It requires additional purchaces in order to support apps like word and photoshop… Since I am a designer I am hoiping he will expand into Illustrator and other Adobe softwares.

it is a great start for an ap but it still needs to do some expanding in order to be a better app.

Nicely Done Utility

Well done.
