I originally bought this to use to turn function keys on and off, that functionality has been moved to their website due to app store restrictions. It's a godsend when working with windows machines remotely, or in one of my developer tools that makes heavy use of function key mappings. Thanks TinyBird!
I set and tested on Chrome - EnglishiA Writer - Koreanbut it doesn't work.
Great for using function keys with pro apps
Using Motion or Cinema 4D just got a whole lot easier for me. Now I don't have to sacrifice my volume button or screen brightness keys for function keys. Keyboard Pilot supports intelligent switching based on app context. When I'm in Motion or C4D, the function keys are function keys. When I'm anywhere else, F1 and F2 adjust screen brightness. Just what I was looking for!
This app works perfectly, exactly as advertised.I use three keyboard layouts: Dvorak, which I use all the time for typing (actually I use the "Dvorak with Qwerty when command is pressed"); Standard US Qwerty layout, which I use for Pixelmator, Blender, Scribus, et. al. so I can use their keyboard shortcuts as designed; and Russian layout, which I use in the Russian flashcards program I have which I'm using to improve my Russian vocabulary. Keyboard pilot easily switches between the different keyboard layouts I use, exactly as advertised, so I don't have to think about switching layouts anymore at all. Worth the three dollars, which is the price of a small snack.One thing I'll note is that I thought the "fn" keys setting wasn't working, because when I tried to use F11 et. al. in Blender, I got Mission Control instead. I had to disable the settings under Mission Control in System Preferences (which I never use anyways) and then it worked perfectly. (The F-key setting WAS working, I just had a system-wide setting for the STANDARD F-keys 9-12, in addition to the special settings for these which change volume settings.)
the apps work fine, but when come to uninstalling it, it's a total pain and it wont let me uninstall!!! I'm telling don't download this!!!!
