Click with the keyboard
Shortcat is a unique application that enables you to click without using the mouse! Shortcat is particularly suited to fast typists.
You simply activate Shortcat with a keyboard shortcut, type a few letters that match the UI element you want to click on, and Shortcat will search the current active window (and menu bar) for matching elements.
Simply hit 'Return' to click on the desired element!
Works with most apps
Shortcat leverages the Accessibility API, which is supported by all applications that come with Mac OS X and most applications!
Finder, Safari, Xcode, Textual, Skype, Calendar and more are supported. Shortcat is constantly being updated to work better with more applications!
