KeyCue 8.7 is The Last Maintenance Release Before KeyCue 9
Ergonis Software today released KeyCue 8.7, a new version of the company’s highly acclaimed keyboard shortcut learning tool. KeyCue 8.7 is scheduled to be the last maintenance release for KeyCue 8, while Ergonis is already preparing to release the major version KeyCue 9 later this year.
KeyCue 8.7 can now display macro shortcuts of yKey (former “iKey”). It offers faster animation of the menu scanning process and additional information during the installation process. Besides that, the new version fixes a cosmetic issue on High Sierra and contains compatibility improvements with PhotoLab and Photos. Visit Ergonis Software’s website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download and try the new version.
Moreover, Ergonis Software is already preparing for the next major version, KeyCue 9, which is scheduled for release later this year. It will come with great new features that open the door to more efficient usage, more power and more fun. But there’s no reason to wait for KeyCue 9. All KeyCue purchases (new and upgrades alike) made now already include the major upgrade to KeyCue 9.0 and all subsequent 9.x upgrades.
The productivity paradox of keyboard shortcuts is that shortcuts were designed to increase productivity. However, productivity actually decreases when applications provide large numbers of shortcuts, in particular when the shortcuts are defined inconsistently across applications. KeyCue’s elegantly simple solution is to display an instant overview of currently available keyboard shortcuts, application-specific menu shortcuts as well as system-wide hotkeys, and user-defined shortcut descriptions. Over time, KeyCue users will automatically remember frequently used shortcuts and start working more efficiently.
KeyCue has already received many awards, including a 4.5-Mice award from MacWorld magazine.
