On this great Ruby on Rails screencast, every time a shortcut combination is pressed it shows up on top of the screen, and it shows up so often that I find it hard to believe it was placed by hand when editing the movie. Is there any application that does this?

Not sure which specific screencast you're speaking of, but they may be using Keycastr.

Actually, I'm sorry, it wasn't a Textmate screencast, it was the "Ruby on Rails 15 Minute Blog" screencast. It's this program, no doubt! Thanks a lot, I had searched this before to no avail. – Solivagant Oct 25 '10 at 19:39

For the sake of completeness: Boinx Software's Mouseposé does this (and a lot more) as well ($17).

+1 Mousesposé is very good :) – Martín Marconcini Oct 26 '10 at 13:43
