Keyboard Maestro - App switcher, macros, and more
Authored by: JonLaliberte on Nov 10, '04 11:25:14AM

I have been using KM 1.2.3 for quite some time now, haven't tried out the new version yet. 1.2.3 was free for I believe 20 macros. Well, ever since OS 8.x (Maybe earlier), I have had some sort of app switching macros. In the OS 8.x days I used OneClick (which I maintain would be amazing for OS X). Anyway, since then I have used these macros for some simple purposes, mainly frequently used applications. Plain and simple it is much quicker getting around when you have 10 apps open to have say, F1 assigned to go to the Finder and hide others. F2 which hides background apps, F3 goes to mail, F4 OmniWeb, F5 Calculator, ect. Then there is F9 & F10 which play/pause, next/previous iTunes (with shift). Those are just a few examples. I have Apple + F1 set to run an AppleScript which sets my screen to dim after 1 minute of idle, and Apple F2 set to run one which sets it to 20 minutes of idle. All in all, for the macro functions alone this app is great. Hope some of you try out using the function keys for something useful like I have mentioned.
