"Just hold ⌘  a second longer"

Remember the first time you learned the shortcut for copy/paste? Life changing. This application brings that same feeling and efficiency to the forefront with little thought. Let's say you forgot a new shortcut, or are trying to find if there's a shortcut for doing *insert task* quicker, just hold down the command key a second longer than normal and.. BAM! There's your answer.

Personally I'm very familiar with the majority of shortcuts and I still thought this was a pretty cool little. It truly became awesome and blog-worthy though when I opened up Photoshop. Even with a decent amount of experience, I've never thought about learning the keyboard shortcuts. Cheatsheet has helped this become a reality, and fast, like a couple hours fast. Now i'm able to change brushes, filters, move through layers and quickly enable free transform without even thinking about thumbing for the trackpad. Best part? If I forget, the answer will be there in just a second.

It's free. Cheatsheet
