Here’s a neat little tool that can save you time, clicks, and possibly from arthritis: Click.to, an app for posting on Facebook, searching Google, or starting a Skype call, and more with just one click.
Simply copy an object – a photo, phrase, or phone number – and select the appropriate action. Your favorite actions will pop up above the cursor, but you can select a tons of other actions, too: tweet, search Wikipedia or YouTube, post to Flickr, or even generate a PDF, Excel, or Paint file. (The popup did get a bit annoying, so I configured it to appear on the left edge of my screen.)
“Working on a PC/Mac desktop is like being in the middle ages; you need sixteen clicks to get where you want to go instead of one (try to post a picture on your Facebook wall and count the clicks starting with clicking on your browser)!” said COO Peter Oehler.
Click.to was inspired by one-click actions on mobile phones, but it will soon be speeding up the smartphone experience with an iPhone app – to help you move data between apps seamlessly instead of repetitive opening and closing.
