Information-capturing software

Capture random bits of info using this unique program.

If you've ever spotted a piece of crucial information while surfing the Internet or reading an e-mail, you might have stumbled trying to find a way to copy it and keep it organized. Anagram claims to be the perfect software for this situation.

The program has a unique interface that takes a trip to the Help menu to understand. However, after some research and experimentation, users should be familiar with Anagram. To activate it, simply highlight some text from an e-mail or Web site and hit CTRL+C twice. This will bring up Microsoft Outlook and Anagram's small window. Anagram's main window displays the highlighted text and offers commands to the right. Users can choose to paste this information as a Contact in Outlook, as an Event in Outlook, as a Task in Outlook, or create a sticky note for their desktop. Depending on the choice, the information fits itself into each of these options, some working better than others.

Anagram is not a perfect program. You'll need every bit of the 45-day trial period to get used to figuring out which option is best for each specific bit of information. In addition, this program probably will only appeal to users who frequently find themselves constantly cutting and pasting info. For those users, this is a great tool for cataloging.
