Mac-Chi has released Wordaux 1.0 (http://www.wordaux.com), a data extraction tool for Mac OS X with integrated one-click user actions.
The app recognizes selected text, Clipboard, files, and webpages as data sources. From these sources it extracts seven data types for names, email addresses, phone numbers, postal addresses, urls, dates, and a user supplied custom regex. Designed to empower Mac users to leverage data as they encounter it, Wordaux can be used by sales executives, students doing research, or just the generally curious.
Examples of usage include: creating contacts from spreadsheet data, augmenting existing spreadsheets with web data, building a note base for research papers, and following up on interesting articles found while surfing the web.The extracted data is presented in standard OS X tables and Wordaux provides immediate drag-ability. With the exception of the Clipboard, all data source provide a citation to the source. The citation can be optionally included in the drag action as well as in many of the user actions.
Wordaux 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.9 or higher and costs US$14.99. It’s available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Business category.
