What’s Your Favourite Software Repurposing Trick?

Software is often designed for a specific purpose, but that doesn’t mean we have to use it that way. Do you use any software for a non-intended purpose? We’d like to know what you do and why.I’ve used project management software as a one-on-one communication tool with a friend. I also know some people who write screenplays in Microsoft Word because templates have been created to turn it into a screenwriting application I don’t personally see using Word to write something as that much of a repurpose – Oz ed. Sometimes software can take on a new life when you look for new ways to use it. Sometimes the software even grows because people find ways to repurpose it (as with Adobe Photoshop).

How have you repurposed software in clever ways? Share your ideas in the comments.
