MacVoices #13113: NAB – ShortcutsHD Turns Your iPad Into A Keyboard Shortcut Control Surface for Your Favorite Apps

One of the most interesting iPad apps we saw at NAB 2013 in Las Vegas was ShortcutsHD, a utility that turns your iPad into a control surface for your professional Mac desktop applications such as Final Cut Pro and Photoshop, and for the not-so-professional apps such as iTunes.  Mihir Patel, the CEO of iGlobeApps, explains how it works, how they are adding support for more apps on a weekly basis, and why this model is so much more affordable than those dedicated physical keyboards you may have been considering.

This edition of MacVoices is sponsored by Smile, the makers of the brand new PDFpen 6 and PDFpenPro 6, as  PDFpen for iPad  and PDFpen for iPhone.
