[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - The new Snow Leopard Service in WhoPaste 3.2 makes extracting new contacts from text easier than ever. WhoPaste 3.2 also adds world-ready phone formatting; new SMS email address options; linked note support in Daylite; match detection in Entourage; and a new post-processing option. WhoPaste can create contacts in Apple's Address Book, Marketcircle's award winning Daylite, Google's Contacts and Microsoft's Entourage.
WhoPaste 3.2 users can now simply select text (no need to 'Copy' the text) and use the Snow Leopard service-savvy context menu to initiate contact creation.
WhoPaste 3.2 delivers optional world-ready phone formatting which stores phones number so they can be dialed from inside any country. This feature will, for example, allow users to take their iPhone to Geneva and still place calls to their friends in Los Angeles in the usual manner.
WhoPaste 3.2 enriches its Daylite interface with more options for handling notes, which can now be added as a linked note to either the contact or the organization or linked to both. The category of this linked note can also be assigned. The Daylite preferences pane and Daylite portion of the main review window have both been revised for easier use and visual clarity.
Match detection has been added to the Entourage. If a duplicate is about to be created, WhoPaste will open the existing contact in Entourage and allow the user to manage the merging operation. A new post-process option allows WhoPaste to open the newly created contact in the native address book immediately after creation. This option allows for adding further custom data to the new contact.
Inside the United States, WhoPaste can now add the SMS email address to existing contacts. The user can define a custom label and can specify whether the SMS email address is added to everyone or only members of a selected group. WhoPaste 3.2 adds a new 'appendix' feature that allows the user to define phrases that halt extraction of contact information and post the remainder of the text to the notes field. This can be quite useful when extracting contact data from structured data.
