As you may have guessed from the name, ShortcutFoo lets you master keyboard shortcuts in various apps including Vim, Emacs, Eclipse, Git, Excel, Visual Studio and many more. It first lets you learn the shortcuts, then presents drills and a practice mode to master them. So you actually use the shortcuts, instead of just memorizing them. Clever idea.

The downside is, only a few shortcut bundles in each app is free. To unlock the rest, you’ll have to pay a one-time fee of $8.99. That’s too high. I may subscribe one day if I happened to learn Emacs or some crazy text editor other than Vim. But no thanks for now.

Why the ‘Foo’ anyway? Shouldn’t it have been ‘Fu’?
