Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Shortcuts will make your everyday tasks easier and help you save time by creating keyboard shortcuts for routine things like launching applications and opening websites.
Set Shortcuts for:
You can launch applications like iCal, iTunes, and Mail by pressing a keystroke. You can easily reconfigure shortcuts and choose other apps or keyboard keys.
* iTunes Actions
Play, pause, next Track, volume control not leaving the application you're currently in.
* Folders & Files
It's very convenient to assign a simple shortcut to a file or folder you constantly work with.
* System Actions
You don't need extra function keys like Play & Pause, Increase & Decrease Volume, Sleep, Restart & Shutdown because you can easily control System, Volume, Screen and Apps with Shortcuts.
* Shell & Applescripts
Once you've written or found a useful script, you can easily run it with a few keys pressed. The built-in script editor allows you to not only import an existing script, but to also create a new one right in the app, perform a test run, make corrections and save or export it to your hard drive.
You can assign shortcuts to websites you like to visit and open them at any time. And, of course, you can replace one URL with another if your tastes or work situation change.
Some user-chosen shortcuts may already exist for another action. If a new shortcut conflicts with a system one, application asks you either to choose another combination or to override the system shortcut.
What's New in Version 2.0.1
- Startup problem fix
- Option to turn off action notifier
Great app, but startup behavior still odd
First the good: I really like Shortcuts and use it all the time, for launching apps, switching between apps, running Apple Scripts, etc.
But: Version 2.0 had startup issues, supposedly fixed in 2.0.1. However, I’ve experienced odd behavior. If I put Shortcuts in my login items, it deletes other logn items and sometimes deletes itself as a login item. I blame Shortcuts since this behavior only began after installing 2.0.1. It used to ask, every time, whether I wanted it to autostart at login. Now it is silent, and frequently doesn’t login at startup at all. Perplexing. I think another fix is in order. Oh, and Shortcuts used to appear in the list of apps using Command-Tab. Now it’s missing there. Hmmm.
Startup problem fix
2.0.1 fixed my startup problem, but the App Store automatic update didn’t do the trick, I had to delete the Application and reinstall to get it working. I did not lose any of my settings or custom AppleScript when I reinstalled.
P.S. Anyone else getting asked on every reboot if you want Shortcuts to autostart on system login?
Fixed startup error in OS X 10.9
2.0.1 fixed my startup problem as well. This version is once again 5 stars while running with OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). Thanks!
