CE Software Releases QuicKeys X
QuicKeys X is a new product specifically designed for Mac OS X

West Des Moines, Iowa, October 8, 2001 -- CE Software, Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: CESW), today announced the release of QuicKeys X for Mac OS X, a new addition to the QuicKeys product line. QuicKeys is the leading automation utility software for both Macintosh and Windows operating systems.

John S. Kirk, President of CE Software, Inc. said, "Since 1987 we've been developing QuicKeys for the previous Macintosh operating system. We've now designed a new QuicKeys, which is as radically different as OS X is from OS 9. As Apple reveals the inner workings of Mac OS X to its developers, QuicKeys X will continually improve."

QuicKeys X includes many time saving shortcuts. Type Text lets users type blocks of text with a single key. Mouse Recording allows users to select menu options that do not have hot keys. Multi-step Shortcuts combine individual actions for advanced automation. Any, or all, shortcuts can be placed on QuicKeys Toolbars for easy access.

Ian Schray, Product Manager, VersionTracker.com stated, "One of my favorite utilities now runs natively in Mac OS X. QuicKeys X beautifully handles all of my repetitive tasks. Now I have no reason to launch the Classic environment!"

QuicKeys X for Mac OS X offers additional features such as:

  • Open applications, documents, and folders with a single keystroke.
  • Type commonly used text with a single trigger.
  • Insert the date and/or time in any application.
  • Easily create or modify shortcuts and steps using the QuicKeys X Editor.
  • Copy or move selected files to a specified folder.
  • Organize shortcuts with the sticky option that allows multiple key press triggers.
  • Easily share your shortcuts with other QuicKeys X users.
  • Run both your Unix commands and AppleScripts by using QuicKeys.
  • Plus many more features.

The introductory price for QuicKeys X is $59.95 for a single user. A special "migration" price for current Macintosh and Windows QuicKeys customers is $49.95.
