Would love to see URL Schemes added
Been using this the OS X version almost a year before I learned about this.
Love these guys(and gals?)!
Impossible to connect to. Trash, deleted app.
Always solid, now w/ added value/functionality
The DEV for the OS X Utility linked w/ this iOS extension (which is required, meaning this App is NOT a Standalone) is outstanding; Attentive, courteous, & fully invested in making sure anyone new to this marvel of a Utility does not "flounder" at the sheer volume & immensity of what the app enables upon 1st foray.
The purchase ($36, which generously included a full free upgrade into Version 6, despite a complete re-tooling, this FREE iOS extension being a facet of such) is followed up w/ a very useful series of unobtrusive & unassuming emails, which make it immediately obvious that the DEV is attentive & accessible, while at the same time doling out substantially useful tips & helpful hints on how to best implement the app per one's taste & unique workflow.
The emails require nothing of the registered user, & in fact are prefaced w/ a bold-faced "opt-out" option, and they contain examples as well as links to video tutorials should they be required.
If one replies in any form or fashion, w/ a question or feature request, they will soon receive a candid & very UN-canned reply from the DEV, who will make it his mission to accomplish the request in some shape or form; usually simply by explaining how to "set" the app accordingly, since it is more powerful & capable than most any other app. (See any of the existing reviews online for "Keyboard Maestro " for reference)
This app further improves upon an already stellar & rock-solid build by offering yet another option for triggering actions/macros/functions on one's Mac, now via iOS remote, as is all the rage. That the DEV would include such an extension, & FREE, is a testament to his commitment, given that the nature of the app is the harnessing of keyboard commands to improve productivity, & this a remote GUI is not exactly a plausible expectation of a needed feature. Nevertheless, many (such as myself) will find a use for it, & in doing so will quickly learn that the app is as in-depth & well thought out as its parent, starting from the moment the 2 pair over HTTPS seamlessly. I find this app to be a great tool for organizing my macros, & for helping me to remember what new actions/functions I wish to submit for Automation.
5 stars for the interface & stability alone. +2 for the fact it is FREE. In Summary: If you don't have Keyboard Maestro for your Mac already, GET IT! The amount of time/money/sanity you'll save as a result & by avoiding several alternative, less-capable apps ALONE is worth the price; & that's BEFORE you realize the potency & potential of this essential OS X Utility.
