Have you ever found copying and pasting to be a real hassle? It starts by highlighting the proper text or the pic, and then you hit CTRL + C, and then you open up whatever program or web page you want to paste it into, select where you want it go, and then hit CTRL + V. That’s a lot of steps! All that changes with Click.to, this week’s App of the Week.
Click.to brings all that clicking and opening into three simple steps. One, you highlight or select whatever it is you want to copy. Two, you hit CTRL+C. Three, you then select the program into which you want to paste the text or pic. That’s it! Your text, weblink, or whatever it is, will appear where you want it just like that!
Click.to allows you to paste to tons of the most popular websites and programs, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft Word, and Blogger. The programs are customizable, so if you don’t have a Twitter (and, why not?), you don’t have to set Click.to to Twitter. But, if you have a blog on WordPress or you use Reddit quite a bit, you can set it to those sites if you want. You can even add shortcuts to the most common programs to which you paste. So, instead of hitting CTRL+C and then selecting Facebook, for example, you can set Facebook to SHIFT+Q and copy and paste something to your profile automatically.
Best of all, this app is completely free. Download it to your Mac or Windows computer, set your programs, and your ready to reduce the amount of time you waste clicking and copying and pasting. This little app has only been around since July, and has already generated tons of press. It’s also incredibly easy to use, with no bugs at all, despite being so new to the market. So, why are you wasting your time with so much clicking an typing? Get it done in one, two, three with this week’s App of the Week.
