Ever see an address online, in an e-mail, or in some other document that you'd like to quickly add to your address book? ContactCopy lets you do just that, without the tedious process of copying, opening another application, pasting, and formatting. This handy little utility makes the process of capturing contact information almost effortless.
The program's interface is small and unobtrusive; it can be minimized to the system tray as an icon, or users can keep a small toolbar floating on their screen. Using the program is incredibly easy; simply highlight the information you want to grab, click "Get Selection" on the toolbar or "Process selected text" from the icon menu, and the program opens an address book-style template that lets users edit and add to the entry. For example, we captured a street address from our Internet browser, and were then able to add a name, phone numbers, company information, e-mail address, and Web address. The program can then export the new listing to Outlook, Outlook Express, Excel, Dynamics CRM, Palm Desktop, or Lotus Notes. The app has detailed options menu that lets you customize the way that ContactCopy parses information, and you can set a hot key to use with the program to make it completely unobtrusive. The program's built-in Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, we think ContactCopy is a great way to save time and energy by automating the process of capturing contact information.
ContactCopy installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
