Design your Panel layout for the way you work. Group shortcuts together so they’re not spread all over the board.
Or create color groups to help define, and quickly see the shortcuts you need for different uses.
Many applications have the same commands but different shortcuts.
No problem, with Keymand you can keep the button in the same place and change the underlying shortcut.
No more confusion or mistakes.
Fast, easy recall – no memorizing.
Switching between Stations happens the instant you switch between applications on your computer.
We have included a number of prebuilt panels as examples, and for your convenience.
They are: Finder, App Store, Calculator, Calendar, Contacts, Dictionary, Font Book, iTunes, Mail, Notes, Photos, Preview, and Safari
They’re easy to change so make them your own. Enjoy.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:
1 A USB connection to the desktop or laptop computer is required in order to provide a solid link and constant power for all day work.
2 THE FREE KEYMAND DT APP IS REQUIRED ON A DESK OR LAPTOP COMPUTER TO SYNC WITH THE IPAD KEYMAND APP. Visit our website (KeymandTech.com) to download this FREE app on as many computers as you need.
• Keymand DT is a very basic desktop application that does not conflict with, or compromise, any other function of your computer. Its job is to simply tell the Keymand Pad app which application is active and then relay the keyboard shortcut from Keymand Pad to the active desktop application.
• Once a connection is made Keymand will sync every time both apps are active with a USB connection.
• All your Station settings are stored on the iPad. They go where you go and are ready when you need them.
• Keymand Pad is optimized for the iPad Air and will scale for the iPad mini or the iPad Pro.
Keymand helps reduce the mental clutter so you can maximize your results.
Does this replace my keyboard?
No. Keymand is an extension of your keyboard. It gives you more control over the selection, use and placement of keyboard shortcuts. Keymand is not about changing the way you use the keyboard, it’s about improving the way you use your applications and helping you to becoming more efficient.
Can I connect this though a USB hub or keyboard USB connection?
Yes. Communication to and from the computer will also work through a hub or the keyboard’s USB connection. We recommend a USB connection to provide power to the iPad for extended periods while you work.
When Keymand Pad is running can I use my iPad for other things?
Yes. Switching between apps on your iPad will temporarily break Keymand’s sync but it will be reestablished when you switch back. All background functions work as usual.

Ratings and Reviews
Great time saver. Easy to use.
Keymand is an incredibly useful app when working with complex graphics software like After Effects, Blender, Mocha, Final Cut etc. I like to work fast and keyboard shortcuts are critical to working efficiently. But these complex programs have so many shortcuts that it’s hard to remember them. What’s worse is that programs use different commands for the same operation (zooming in and out for example) which can create confusion. This app allows me to set up the same button to perform similar commands across different programs.
The app has really speeded up my workflow and has the added benefit that I can lay out buttons visually in a way that makes sense for how I use the program. And because I started looking up shortcuts to add to it, I ended up discovering a number of shortcuts I never knew about, further improving my workflow.
This is a very useful app for people who use sophisticated software. If you are an occasional computer user, it isn’t going to solve any problems for you, but if the programs you use come with long lists of keyboard shortcuts that you have to learn, this app will help you work faster and more efficiently.
I've been using Keymand for about a week, mostly with Apple Logic Pro X, and I can say that it's a great time saver, especially if you use a lot of commands that are buried deep in menus and keep forgetting their short cuts. Very fast & easy to create new ones so, once you get the hang of it, you won't worry about interrupting your work-flo for a few seconds to do so. It's surprisingly usable for a first version.
I'm also a Final Cut user, and while I haven't been working in it this week, I already see that it'll be a great assistant there, as well as Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. too.
This is the wisest 20 bucks I've spent in ages!
Power users rejoice
Joining the chorus of others here, I’m finding Keymand to be an incredible timesaver. Brilliantly designed and, even in this early release, highly efficient as it is. Works well with both Keyboard Maestro and BetterTouchTool, too, taking it to new levels.
Writing in with kudos and offering suggestions for enhancements after giving Keymand a spin, the developer responded within an hour, promising much more to come when “the app of today will look like a ‘64 Mustang compared to a Tesla roadster.” Ready for the ride, David!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
