  • I don’t particularly like they are a big company
  • I don’t like it’s a subscription so I don’t pay it
  • But it did replaced 3 apps into one so I use it
  • I like the extensions and that I could extend it

Keyboards / Hotkeys

I use Karabiner to do basic changes to the keyboard

  • CapsLock to Hyper / Escape
  • Hyper + HJKL = Arrows

Then in Keyboard Maestro I use the Hyper key to do more stuff, for example:

  • Window selection:
    • Hyper + F = Open or show Browser
    • Hyper + T = Open or show Terminal
    • Hyper + V = Open or show Code Editor
    • Hyper + G = Open or show Things
    • And so on
  • Browser: If I am in a browser:
    • Hyper + C = Open Calendar
    • Hyper + D = Open Google Drive
    • Hyper + G = Open Gmail
    • Hyper + W = Open WhatsApp
    • And so on


  • I am still on version 7 and works great. When it stops working I will upgrade my license


  • Video: VLC but also using IINA a lot now
  • Messaging: WhatsApp / Signal
