ActiveWords

alphabet lettersOne of the software tools I use to leverage my time is ActiveWords. The basic idea with ActiveWords is that you type a word and the word launches a program, jumps to a website, sends an email, substitutes text, or any number of things. I have gotten hooked on it. There are an unlimited number of uses. I type "mob" and ActiveWords types "Best way to reach me is on my mobile phone at +1 203-526-3680". When blogging, I have a number of ActiveWords that speed the creation of links. For example, I type "cat" and ActiveWords responds by typing "https://www.johnpatrick.com/category" or I type "ht" and it types "http://www.". I also use it to speed up various functions in Outlook. ActiveWords is one of those things that you have to try for awhile to see the power of it. ActiveWords has teamed up with Lockergnome to offer a free download of the basic version ActiveWords to anyone who wants it. There has been a lot of demand that has resulted in some download problems so it may take some patience, but I can recommend the product to anyone who spends a lot of time at the keyboard and would like to try a good productivity tool. The free download is here. Now, if only they had a version for Linux.
