    Keyboard Maestro

    Conduct your Mac like a pro

    I am not really sure if Keyboard Maestro would fit here, but it's a great app if you want to do keyboard-shortcuts (virtual mouse and keyboard inputs) on any app!

    Brilliant app. It's the bees knees when it comes to keyboard macro recording with ease. It's an intuitive way to build complex workflows to save time and strained hands on mouse/trackpads. This app allows you to take those great keyboard shortcuts you know and love, and bring them into other programs, control your UI, run scripts, macros, workflows, actions, etc. Also great to be running alongside alfred, karabiner and either a macropad and/or a programmable keyboard for ultimate workflow control.

    I tried Rocket on my Mac once. Found it a bit slow/not working in certain cases, but is a good choice, nevertheless.

    I tried it out briefly and found auto expanding all of my favorite emojis (every slack default) as snippets in alfred to always be faster—but I'm keeping my eyes on Rocket!

    Alfred Remote

    If Spotlight was actually powerful, it would be Alfred. Alfred lets you build in hundreds of shortcuts, including my favorite "Open {{file name}}" all from your keyboard. Saved me hours - was the first thing I installed when I got my new computer.

    Ghost browser has keyboard shortcuts to open up isolated cookie jars in the same browser window and also new Projects on the fly. We'll be expanding keyboard shortcuts to include a lot of other stuff too...probably in the order that they are requested.

    Nothing even compares for screenshots, videos, gifs and heavily annotating any of those options. I can't imagine my computer life without it. (They don't pay me but I'd quit any job I've had to work there in a ❤beat)

    Live. Saver. Especially when you're moving a bunch of text between windows or pages. Access up to 40 of the past things you've copied, directly from your keyboard. I change the shortcut to CMD+Shift+V, but to each his own 🤗

    Evernote has some very useful keyboard shortcuts. Although, now that I use the emoji keyboard shortcut, I end triggering an Evernote command quite often unintentionally. 😅

    Still think Evernote needs more keyboard love, but since they released a hotkey for fuzzy searching anything from tags, titles, notebooks or keywords, I haven't used anything else to dig through my Evernote.

  18. Turn every single website in your browser into something you can keyboard shortcut your way through! I can't begin to describe how much mental effort this saves me as I browse websites on a day to day basis...
