"Finally found it. A powerful tool to save me time."

August 14, 2008  |  By rgcole

 |  Version: ActiveWords Plus 1.9

Pros

Been looking for something like ActiveWords. I wanted to be able to easily assign keystrokes/phrases to scripts that would direct my computer to action. Now I save time opening folders 4 deep with only a simple keyword. I can open websites, substitute long text for a keyword, and much more. Worth more than it costs.

"Old fashioned - There are better alternatives"

July 26, 2008  |  By Sinicity

 |  Version: ActiveWords Plus 1.9

Pros

I read a lot of rants and raves about this program but i was really disappointed. There are far better freeware and open source alternatives available.

Cons

quirky user interface.

"Stunning efficiency"

November 21, 2004

 |  Version: ActiveWords Plus 1.9

Summary

I used this app a few years ago and liked it, but not enough to continue it after my programmable multimedia keyboard came along. But with the latest version, I'm amazed with exactly how much it lets the user decide how he will use it. Buy this program today and spend your day being productive rather than pointing and clicking.

"Can't Live without ActiveWords!"

June 21, 2004

 |  Version: ActiveWords Plus 1.9

Summary

This is an awesome utility program that should be built in to Windows. Once you adopt it, it is hard to live without it. Imagine Word's Autocorrect on steroids! Take any word, phrase, paragraph or page you type or even cut-n-paste on a regular basis, and make up your own shortcut for it. Anytime you type your shortcut, IN ANY APPLICATION, and your shortcut disappears and is replaced by the word, phrase, etc. you established. You need to take some time to build up your personal wordbase with the shortcuts you use. But, it is far better than Autocorrect, not only because it works across all applications, but also has confirmation, web sites, e-mail, application loading, and a macro language. The publisher has several starting wordbases that you can modify. Support is excellent. The Macro programming is the only hard thing about ActiveWords, but only because it is complex to be flexable -- and you don't need it to still love this program. Give this a serious try and it will win you over. (I have no commection to ActiveWords, just a devoted user. I have it on all 4 of our computers at home.)

"ActiveWords allows you to make any word you type or select meaningful. Extremely powerful concept."

April 30, 2004

 |  Version: ActiveWords Plus 1.9

Summary

Installation is easy. ActiveWords monitors the words that you type and or select. On your command it launches programs, urls, e-mail messages, pastes frequently used pieces of text etc. Scripting language included.
This should be integrated into the Windows operating system. I highly recommend this. Excellent and prompt user support.

"ActiveWords saves me time, hassle"

April 06, 2004

 |  Version: ActiveWords Plus 1.9

Summary

AW lets me pull up info, access folders, lookup words, get to Web sites, run programs... with just a few keystrokes. Goodbye, mouse. Hello, keyboard shortcuts! Plus the support from this company rocks. Anyway, this program saves me at least a few minutes every single day... definitely paid for itself quickly. Works great with Office 2003, too (I use it mostly with Outlook).
