One way to boost your productivity on your Mac is to use shortcut keys for controlling the apps you're working with. Unfortunately, it's pretty difficult to remember every single global hotkey, especially when you're using multiple programs on your computer. KeyCue is a utility that helps you recall any shortcut key that controls an app that's being installed on your computer.

The first thing you need to do after installing this program on your Mac is to grant it accessibility feature from the System Preferences panel. Afterwards, the app will give you access to all of the hotkey information you could possibly need.

The program lives on your Menu Bar, without draining your CPU resources load. Once you click its icon a window will be displayed on your desktop revealing all of the available shortcut keys alongside their description.

In the View screen from the Settings panel you will find plenty of options for changing the appearance of the main menu of the app. The program also gives you access to various themes and an option to adjust the transparency level of the main screen.

Another great aspect is that you can add your own global hotkeys for any app that's being installed and running on your Mac. You can also import additional predefined shortcut descriptions by going to Settings -> Custom and clicking the Download Extras button.

Personally, I can't find any bad things to say about this app. It works perfectly, it's feature-rich, and comes with a fair price. So, I think it's worth giving it a try if you want to improve your productivity on your Mac.
