Keyboard Maestro

My thanks to Keyboard Maestro for sponsoring last week at DF.

Keyboard Maestro is a Mac utility that lets you automate applications or web sites, text or images, simple or complex, on command or scheduled. Anything you can do on your Mac manually, Keyboard Maestro can almost certainly automate for you.

Even if you’re just getting started, Keyboard Maestro’s intuitive, approachable interface — and library of hundreds of built-in actions — will enable you to build complex macros to make your daily life more pleasant. Power users can even include their own custom scripts — written in AppleScript or any Unix shell scripting language. It’s like Shortcuts, but faster and more powerful.

But, speaking of Shortcuts, Keyboard Maestro 10.1 — released just last week — adds Shortcuts support to Keyboard Maestro. You can trigger Shortcuts to execute within a Keyboard Maestro macro and execute Keyboard Maestro actions from within a Shortcuts shortcut.

I can’t say enough good things about Keyboard Maestro, or describe how essential it is to my daily workflows on the Mac. It is, in short, indispensable. Try the full-featured demo version, free of charge, and see for yourself.
