(just like with the new TouchBar!) Its purpose is to simplify and empower computing tasks, streamline your workflow to help you stay focused and be more productive, while making you feel like a sci-fi spaceship captain - not too shabby, uh?

  • Broken promise?

    Nearly 2 years ago I paid for Hero subscription as I was promised that 'trackpad' functionality was close to release in Quadro. However it seems things are currently very quiet from the Quadro team, no posts, tweets or blog posts in the past 6 months?! Can we please have some news/ reassurance that those new features are coming? Thanks.

    It looks like if it worked it might be great, but I just wasted a lot of time installing on mac and ipad, and after several tries on wifi and USB, it won't go past the connection screen. Troubleshooting page on website offers no tips. Deleting

    Meh it's an alright concept and I get the idea but it's such a mess, and I usually find things very easy to use from the get go, but I feel like this is just a more time consuming app and deffo not worth the money, also "fails to send actions" to a lot of apps I've used and then the app just gets confused, but oh well at least there's a trial period

    After coming back for a length of a year to see if anything changed but to my upmost surprise they, the developers have made it worse. Let me explain: Removed the One off payment: so now you have no choice but to spend a yearly sum of £18 (GBP) and £3 to unlock a keyboard. Understandable people have to eat but paying the app before download would be much better. They give about a week or less free trial but that's all. Still haven't updated the app description: The app still after all this time they haven't made an effort to warn uses that they will have to subscribe and make an account (which you have no control over) to do anything. If you don't pay every year, you cannot do an eighth if the features that they describe or even add. Effectively misleading people to download and that isn't cool. At least let us know! The free trial DOES NOT WORK: Remember that trial I said earlier well... yeah... Now this has been an issue from the start and it still hasn't been fixed! how do I know? Made a new account and nope...no trial and if I recall it is something to do with the AM/PM clock on the iPad or something.... Account self limits: Now you have to make an account to use the app, no big deal most apps do that now for upcoming developments and such but they give you simple control over it and you can delete it at anytime. Simple. Not here though, you have to email the people and they will take a week to do so which isn't bad but could be done much better adding in an account settings bit wouldn't be an impossible task. The account allows for backups of the buttons and to share them. Theres a few more things but really... It isn't worth it sure if you have the money but... Ehh Its a cool, awesome program but money seems to be the developers main goal that or it's just a genius idea painted a bit... Out of colour. Just needs massive improvements and tinkering.

    I downloaded this for my iPhone 7 and iPad Pro. Installation was easy as pie on both my PC and Mac, just installed the software from the website and off I went. My uses for this are wide, productivity for my business, media control for Plex and iTunes, controlling HomeKit devices and finally hotkeys for games. All worked great on the iPad... iPhone however was not the same story! Upon opening it crashes every single time. I'm sure it will be fixed soon and if not I won't be subscribing again next year. This is near perfect but only if it works.

    What a perfect app. This has increased my productivity massively while I've been using it. The app is being developed constantly so new functionality is being added all the time. I didn't strictly need the premium features but I wanted to support the developers. I do want to suggest features for the app but I am not sure where to do this yet.
  • SOLID! A PRO VERSION OF THE TOUCH BAR

    As an old user of QuicKeys + Extra Keyboard on the Mac, this app is a step into the future. I use it a lot with all the Adobe apps and i definitely can recommended it!
  • Poor execution of a good idea

    It's too fussy and complicated. When this app is supposed to be an extension of the computer UI you're using, the last thing you need is to have to learn a whole new lexicon and icon language. It doesn't feel like an extension of macOS at all and doesn't look like it. Now that touchbar is out (and that's the reason I tried this app) these guys should be copying and one-upping it, I hope they do instead of trying to invent their own confusing language

    It is as good app, and a very well presented app, and could make life easier with the paid upgrade to customise it to your use. Whilst I think many 'professional' apps are underpriced, this at £40 for the full version is ridiculous. After all I already have a short cut app in front of me . . . . . Its called a keyboard.
