WhoPaste 4.0 adds new operating modes, social URL extraction

updated 08:15 pm EST, Wed December 2, 2009

New version adds four AppleScript commands

Mac-Chi has launched an update to its contact utility, WhoPaste. The utility can extract contact information from clipboard contents, with support for the primary contacts utilities for Mac: Apple's Mail, Google's Contacts, Marketcircle's Daylight and Microsoft's Entourage. It supports plain text, rich text and spreadsheet data, with quick access via a hotkey. WhoPaste can designate a new contact's category, priority, and tagline, as well as an organization's category, industry, region, tagline, and type. A list of keywords are assigned to either a contact or organization.

Version 4.0 integrates two new operating modes, auto save and vacuum, along with improved support for international contacts. The utility is also now able to work directly from Snow Leopard's services menu. Auto-save mode immediately stores data without waiting for a review, while vacuum mode specifically extracts e-mail addresses, web URLs, phone numbers, and postal addresses. Version 4 can extract URLs from social sites such as Facebook, Flickr, Last.fm, LinkedIn and Twitter, to be included in new contact records.

The update also adds four AppleScript commands: newContactFromClipboard, newContactFromText, newContactFromFileContents, and newContactsFromFiles. Each command uses current WhoPaste settings and includes parameters for setting the new auto-save and vacuum modes.

WhoPaste 4.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. Single-user licenses cost $15, while two-user licenses can be purchased for $20. Discounts are also available for 10-user and 25-user licenses.
