ShortcutMe on sale today only - Get it for $2.99


whoooo doesn't use it? since they invented the quicksearch, it's pretty much needed to use both search AND the oldschool shortcuts.

To have a nice user interface, it uses Blackberry's screeshot feature to take a screenshot and draw itself on top of it.

Does anyone know what time the sale will end (midnight Eastern Time or 12 AM Pacific Time)? There is something funky with my payment setting in app world and I won't be able to fix until I get home from work.

The sale is planned to end at 11:59 PM (PST, about 9 hours from now). Hopefully you are home before that.


I noticed that current version is 5.9.6 and you have been constantly adding improvements to the app. Is version 6 coming out soon and will there be a charge to upgrade from version 5.x?

(ShortcutMe will also be on sale today (%40 off) because of request from buyers in Asia who where sleeping when the sale was announced.)

Since 3 years ago, ShortcutMe had 51 free upgrades and 1 paid ($0.99).
In the same period, competitors have requested 3 paid upgrades each for ($1.99).

I am constantly working on developing/testing new versions. If I were you, I would take advantage of the sale now and get it for %40 off.
Even if the future version ended up as paid, it will be less than what you save on sale today.
That also means that you can faster get your hands on macros (your own macros)
