  • Windows download doesn’t even work.

    By Matt_Johnson124
    I got the app and it told me to go and download its software on my computer, screen I did. I followed the instructions and once installed I went to open the file but it was corrupted in some way so I tried to download it a few more times (deleting the olds ones) but it didn’t work. I even tried using the 32 bit link but that one wouldn’t open either and gave the same error “unable to create shortcut”. This should probably be fixed.
  • Horrible support

    By DJ Kinetic Power
    Love this app but their support is terrible. I have already contacted them 5 times for tech support and tried sales and they never ever respond back. a company with no support is worthless in my opinion
  • Quadrosync

    By alpharazonthegolden
    The download speed for the desktop version is too slow.
  • Add a drawing tab to it

    By Genius6488
    Why not also add a drawing tab just like other drawing tab apps except this combines both a professional keyboard and a professional drawing tab for designers so you can stick to one app
  • Such a beautiful app

    By vDotson
    The app is smooth and works so perfect, the only thing I am trying to figure out is how to emulate me pressing two keys at once since I am setting up a bunch of custom key commands. For example H and 6 at the same time. All I can figure out right now is it’s “pasting” them thus emulating Ctrl+v, but I need it to “press” those two keys at the same time. If that could be added, I wouldn’t mind paying $20!!
  • Brilliant Idea

    By Jbenk7
    I have been waiting for what to and following them quite some time. The reason, they have a GREAT idea. So many time I wish for a simple way to access specific commands in a program. For a while I didn't have a need for it. But then I returned thinking I could use it. But was severely disappointed to see yet another subscription fee. While this may be so useful, I don't think it is worth a subscription... Possibly a pay once... But not worth it continually. Especially if only 5 people have reviewed this and primarily very low rates. So. I bid you adeau.
  • This is the worst thing ever

    By hushsu
    I don't write reviews but god forbid I don't tell people how bad and a scam this app is. I downloaded it and also had to install the software on my Mac. It took forever to connect and after a while I wanted to delete this and uninstall it off my Mac. For at least an hour whenever I try to uninstall it, it tells me I can't because the application is still open. But there is no way of closing the app. My computer could not even detect that it was an existing application. Such a scam!
  • I tried… really, I did!

    By James Randorff
    I loved the idea of this app. Creating one-tap shortcuts and sorting them into context groups is a fantastic idea. Unfortunately, despite spending over an hour with the app, the online tutorials, and a couple YouTube videos, I found this to be basically non-functional. Even the pre-programmed shortcuts (e.g. iTunes control) did not work. Most items had several greyed-out options that said, "Soon." There was no option to select a menu item, click a button, or press a numpad key (as opposed to just a number key, which offers different functions in many programs). The tutorials need to have less snark and cutesiness, and more teaching you how to actually make things happen. The online support is woefully archaic, forcing you to hit the "back" button instead of offering collapsible text.
  • Would love to see color customization

    By itfactorat
    It would be great if you could customize the colors of the buttons.
  • Very Much Like the Potential

    By Mp315
    Very much like what Quadro is capable of and can see how it can majorly improve my workflow. As of now, I'm waiting for features that are marked "soon" and would love the option to hold down a pad which holds down a key at the same time. Otherwise, don't mind the price for this app.
