Shortcat

June 11, 2013

Shortcat is a keyboard tool for Mac OS X that lets you “click” buttons and control your apps with a few keystrokes. Think of it as Spotlight for the user interface.

This is undeniably brilliant, but I’m not sure I could find a real use for it, and trust me, no one hates taking his hands off the keyboard more than me. In this (well, at least my) world of do-everything Keyboard Maestro macros, TextExpander snippets, and AppleScripts all tied to various key combinations, I just don’t think I’d get a lot of mileage out of Shortcat. That said, I’m curious to see what my fellow power users come up with.
