After announcing in February that a Beta was available, developer CE Software has now released the final version of QuicKeys X2 v2.1. The latest edition adds a long list of new features, including multi-step functionality that allows you to jump to a particular step or an offset of a step in a shortcut, Typing Speed and Sync All Typing Actions preferences that dictate the typing speed of new or existing typing actions, recording improvements, a Save As dialog that appears when you close a newly created shortcut without naming it first, and more.
QuicKeys is an application that automates complex tasks by turning them into simple shortcuts. It records your keystrokes and mouse clicks and plays them back when you trigger the shortcut you assigned to the task. You can assign the shortcuts to one application or several, and QuicKeys allows you to immediately access those shortcuts through key combinations or floating toolbars. You can create multiple, tab-accessible toolbars for groups of shortcuts, and you can also set up the QuicKeys timer to execute shortcuts at preset times on certain days of the week.
This update is a free download for all registered owners of QuicKeys X2 v2.0.x. It’s a required upgrade for all Mac OS X v.10.3 “Panther” users; others need to be running Mac OS X v.10.2.3 “Jaguar” or higher.
The full version is a US$99.95 application. You can download a demo that expires after 30 days from the CE Software Web site. Upgrades from version 1.5 to X2, from 1.0 to X2, or from Classic to X2, are $19.95, $34.95, or $69.95, respectively.
