1. What is Keyboard Spy?
You want to record all keyboard keystrokes on your computer? You want to save them in a log file in the background? Maybe you want to spy the keyboard when someone else uses your Mac? You want to save all what you typed on your keyboard as a real time backup and eventually for later retrieval?
Then Keyboard Spy is what you need!

Keyboard Spy allows you to spy and record all your keyboard keystrokes in a log file in the background.
- It records all keyboard keystrokes on your computer (excepted the passwords protected by Mac OS X itself).
- It is an invisible background application that does not appear in the Dock.
- It saves all your keystrokes in a log file in real time.
- It saves the applications switching.
- It doesn't need any installation which makes it very easy to use.
- It is available in Catalan, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Turkish and many other languages.

Version 5.0:
- A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with Lion.
- A full recompilation has been made again as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
- Minor bugs have been corrected.
- A Catalan localization has been released.
- The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks:
Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks, if you're launching the application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developper).
NB: We're not distributing our applications through the Mac App Store, because Apple's fees policy on the Mac App Store is not financially respectful of developers and small and medium companies.

Particular case of Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks:

Under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks, if you're launching the application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu.

4. How to uninstall it?
There should be no reason to do this. ;-)
However, if really needed, you just have to throw it into the trash, that's all.

5. How to use it?
The best way to use Keyboard Spy is to add it in the Login items (in the System Preferences panel) so that it is automatically launched each time you turn your Macintosh on.
Each time Keyboard Spy is launched it creates a new log file in your Preferences folder and names it YYYY/MM/DD/HH/MM/SS.log where YYYY/MM/DD and HH/MM/SS are the date and the time when the application was launched.
The folder in which your log file is saved can be modified in the Preferences window.
The extension of the log file can be modified in the Preferences window.
The content of the current log file can be opened through the Preferences window.

The "Open Keyboard Spy Preferences" command file:"
It allows you to open the application Preferences window because it's an invisible background application that does not appear in the Dock.

The "Quit Keyboard Spy" command file:"
It allows you to quit the application because it's an invisible background application that does not appear in the Dock.

If you don't want the application to be found when it is on your hard drive, you can simply rename it.
