Editors’ Notes

Easily access context-specific actions.

fralgmawalgmafairlifralg ,

I recommend it to everybody. Just get it.

I promise you will wonder how you got along without it. As another reviewer said, tremendously useful without being annoying.

Bhishan ,

Works only half of the times, Otherwise, 5 stars!!

I absolutely love this app, it worths its price, but quite a bit frustated sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.
I would give 5 stars if it has been all the times I selected text.

I am kind of used to click the “Copy” button as soon as I select the text, but sometimes it does not pop up anything and I have to press “Cmd-c”, which is
the usual way but that is what I am looking not to do this time.

Update is needed, also make it ignore dictionary suggestion, most of the times I write code, and I dont care about spelling errors.
