Keyboard-first apps

I don’t know if this is a trend or anything but I like the idea of this: keyboard-first apps. Chris shared Godspeed, a todo list app, that has a “hardcore mode” that disables the mouse so you can get used to the keyboard shortcuts even faster. But the whole product is designed around the keyboard.

I also spotted Retina Studio the other day that has the same kinda philosophy with their apps TextBuddy and Fastmarks which is “100% keyboard-driven.”
