Keyboard Maestro is one of the most powerful and awesome apps available for the Mac.
One thing you can use Keyboard Maestro for is to apply global keyboard shortcuts that can then be used to trigger just about any sort of macro, action, or script that you want.
For example, I have a hotkey set to launch Mail upon a particular keystroke. I also have a shortcut to open Safari URLs in Chrome. Or to Launch Tweetbot in a moment’s notice (not my most productive shortcut). And that’s just the tip of the Keyboard Maestro iceberg.
Perhaps my favorite use for Keyboard Maestro is to eliminate one of the single biggest frustrations I encounter when using my Mac: hitting a keyboard shortcut to launch a quick-entry to my todo list, but realize that my todo list is not currently running. (Here’s that KM macro if you’re interested.)
What also makes it great is that all these scripts and macros are based on a graphical user interface — you don’t have to do any actual coding to use it, you just have to know what problem you want a solution for.
