Apptivate Comments

Nice if you want to honor pre-existing shortcuts

Comment by adamlogan
about Apptivate Oct 2015

This app will not overcome pre-existing shortcuts, and it is for that reason that I don't use it. If you want to honor the shortcuts system wide, and for all 3rd party apps, then this seems like a pretty sweet app. For now I am continuing to use Spark, as it still works on OSX 10.11 El Capitan amazingly enough.
