Mac-Chi Announces Two iPhone Apps: WhoPaste and WhoP-G

April 29, 2010 in Productivity (E)

[] Austin, Texas - Mac-Chi is proud to announce two iPhone apps: WhoPaste and WhoP-G. WhoPaste creates records in Apple's Contact app, which runs on the iPhone. WhoP-G creates records in Google's Contacts application, which runs in the cloud. iPhone users can copy text from any application and then launch either WhoPaste or WhoP-G both of which recognize company names, job titles, phone numbers, email addresses, urls, and postal addresses. The new contact is previewed allowing for editing any of the information.

When combined with the innovative Dragon Dictation app from Nuance Communications, both WhoPaste and WhoP-G allow iPhone users to create contacts by simply speaking the information. The Dragon Dictation app transcribes the user's speech into text that can be put on the clipboard where WhoPaste can automatically extract the various data elements and create the contact record.

Both iPhone products are built from Mac-Chi's desktop application. "Apple's developer tools made this transition from desktop to mobile just plain painless." explains Steve Cronin, CEO of Mac-Chi. "Basically we were able to button up the application logic from our Mac product and wrap it in an iPhone interface. Aside from supporting the initial mobile development, Apple's unified approach allows us to move forward with a centralized application core. So now any improvements automatically flow to both the desktop and the mobile applications."

WhoPaste and WhoP-G both allow the user to specify a default city, state, and area code, specify whether phone numbers are formatted for international dialing, and specify tags to be added to the contact notes field. WhoP-G also allows the user to specify that the new contact be added to any of the Google system groups (My Contacts, Family, Friends, or Coworkers) as well as one user-defined group. WhoPaste allows the user to specify that the new contact be added to one group in Address Book.

Capitalization rules can be specified, as well as the order telephone labels should be assigned when the data does not make it clear. Both products allow the user to specify whether the nickname should be automatically be set the first name, whether a creation date should be included in the note field, and whether the work or home label is preferred.
