Introducing Keymote

Ah, the universal remote. What a game-changer. You don’t have to worry about ten different remotes just to watch a DVD; simply program it to work with everything in your media center and you’re good to go.

But how about your Mac? Sure, you probably have one of those Apple remotes, but how much can it really do? You can change tracks in iTunes or control Front Row, but what about everything else – Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Coda, or even The Sims?

Welcome to Keymote. It picks up where all other Mac remotes left off. With Keymote, you can control any application you want. ‘How is this possible?’ you may ask. Simple, with the use of keyboard shortcuts and a slick user interface. Almost every Mac application uses keyboard shortcuts to control basic functions. By pairing your iPhone or iPod Touch to your computer (with the Keymote Receiver desktop app), Keymote can send these shortcuts over the air.

Let’s say you just picked up your copy of Photoshop, but you’ve got no clue where to start. No problem; Keymote can help. Just fire up your iPod Touch or iPhone, launch Keymote, head on over to the Keyset Store, and download a Photoshop keyset that someone just like you has made and you’ll be clone stampin’, color correctin’, and paintbrushin’ in no time. And you can do all of this without ever learning a single keyboard shortcut.

You can now download Keymote from the App Store here. If you like it, please leave us a nice review. Thanks, and enjoy Keymote!
