HotKeys is the Mac companion app for the HotKeys iOS iPad app.
Together with the iOS app, you can send shortcut key commands through to your mac.
It's a pain having to remember shortcuts in an app, so we've made an app where you can simply assign a button a name and short cut. When you press the button it will perform the action on your Mac like magic.

Ratings and Reviews
First off, I had to connect this through my iPad, not through my Mac. The Mac app found my iPad, but it wouldn't connect. Do this:
1. Download both the iPad and the Mac app. Start both of them.
2. Click the icon in the top left corner of the iPad app.
3. Click the paintbrush-looking icon way at the bottom of the "My Packs" menu that pops out. It's way down below the list and the logo. Not a great place for it.
4. Choose your Mac.
Now you're all set. Seriously, this app is fantastic. The default shortcuts include a ton of things that I do all the time, and so this app makes life a lot easier.
A word to the devs: It's not intuitive to set up and the lack of in-app instructions doesn't help. You got a good thing going here, but you need to make it easier for people to use.
Works fine for me!
Started the iPad app, installed and started the OSX app, connected. No problem. Now if I could readily find some documentation...
Doesn't work. Won't connect.
Sees the ipad app but won't connect. Also, you need to be on a wireless network- would be better if you could connect on an ad-hoc network when there is no actual network available.
