Send Article to a Friend

Stairways Software has released a significant update to the popular macro utility Keyboard Maestro. Version 4.0 overhauls the user interface, adds 64-bit support, and adds support for Growl notifications. Macros can now be executed when hot keys are pressed, held down, or released. Also, Command-Tab can now be used as a hot key, the program switcher can optionally hide all other programs when switching, and the clipboard switcher now offers both a search feature and display of images and rich text. Version 4.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later. ($36 new, $18 upgrade, 7.6 MB)

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as "Tx" for "TextExpander". With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>

Looks good, but with the new upgrade to BetterTouchTool (free), I know which one I'm going for.

BetterTouchTool looks neat, but it's not really comparable to Keyboard Maestro as far as I can tell. Keyboard Maestro is a full-featured macro utility that can perform a ton of actions based on numerous different triggers.

Oh my no, you're not really comparing Keyboard Maestro to BetterTouchTool, are you?
