Windows: Sharing a good quote or image on Facebook or sending it to Simplenote takes an annoying amount of clicks. Click.to lets you pipe just about anything you copy to your clipboard to a number of desktop apps and online services.
While most browsers have a “search selected text on Google” feature, they don’t include the same convenience for Gmail, Facebook, and any other service you may use. Click.to is a Windows program (Mac version coming soon) that pipes text and images through a ton of different services with just one click. When you first install the program, you tell it what services you use the most often, and then it sits in your system tray and waits for you to copy something. Whenever you do, it’ll hover a few buttons over your cursor that you can use to quickly share that text or image via Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, or even send it to Simplenote.
It certainly has a few little quirks, though. The first time I shared an image on Facebook it just put it into a random album (though after that it put it into its own Click.to album). If you share something on Twitter, it just shares the text you selected and nothing else – no way to edit the tweet and give any context to what you’ve selected. However, overall most of its functions work well, and it’ll actually save you a good deal of the tedious clicking you do all day. With a bit more polish, it could become extremely useful, so this is one we’ll be keeping an eye on. Check out the video above for a demo, and hit the link below to try it out.
Click.to is a free download for Windows systems only.
