It’s Official!

by Eric Ebert on 22. January 2014 – 10:00

The new click.to version is here! After working so hard to fix some of our initial problems. We are happy to announce that we are officially through with the Beta Phase. I would personally like to thank all of our testers for their feedback and patience during our initial stages. You are a very valuable part of the development of click.to.

We are very excited to announce some changes in the first official version:

We’ve made some changes to the look and design (don’t worry, the functions you’ve come to depend on are still there)

click.to is now available in German (Herzlich Willkommen!)

And of course we killed a few bugs in the process!

We are very excited to be entering into the licensing phase of the project and will be offering the new and version for free, for 14 days! After the initial trial is over, you can buy your click.to license here: click.to

If you have any questions or support problems, please don’t hesitate to contact our click.to support team at: support@clicktoapp.com

New Cooperation with Gelbe Seiten!!

by Eric Ebert on 2. August 2012 – 11:40

Click.to is very happy to announce the new partnership with Gelbe Seiten! If you don’t know who they are, then you probably have never looked up a number or an address of a hotel, a restaurant or a plumber in Europe. They are one of the biggest local business directories in Germany!

Now with click.to, you can search for an address and phone number directly from a PDF, word document, an e-mail or anywhere else. Gelbe Seiten and click.to also support complex searches, which means that you don’t need specifics to start your search! If you get an email asking you to look for a rental car in the center of Berlin, just highlight “rental car in the center of Berlin” from the email and click.to Gelbe Seiten! It’s that easy! Click.to knows what you’re looking for and will fill in the proper search fields to get the best result! Read More…



The construction of a startup

by Eric Ebert on 21. June 2012 – 11:59

At click.to, we’re hacking everyday to bring great new features to our users. Our users have responded with great new ideas and many supportive emails sent to our inboxes. As a startup, we are dependent on the work of some of the bigger guys in the tech industry and we are grateful for their support. There are instances that we’ve run into that have changed the direction of our product, and the direction of our workday.

It’s possible that you start the day planning to tackle a certain “bug” or to add a new feature only to get a tweet from one of your users that a previous function no longer works. In this day and age, small firms such as ours are constantly connected and are ready to take action at a moments notice, however it can be difficult to keep up with the ever-changing platforms of our partners.

How accessible is tech to the common user

by Eric Ebert on 13. April 2012 – 10:27

I was inspired to write a quick blog about the common user. The inspiration comes from the new Kraft Mac and Cheese™ marketing campaign going on right now. For Kraft’s 75th anniversary of Mac and Cheese, they decided to turn over their social marketing campaign to two ladies in the 80s. Dottie is 86 and Frankie is 87.( The idea is that they have been eating Mac and Cheese for their entire lives, and they could share their experiences with people around the world!

It’s quite nice to see a couple of nice “older” ladies navigate the new social networks that the youngsters take for granted. They are currently listed on Twitter @kraftmacncheese or under the hash tag #oldbirdsnewtweets. Yesterday they did an interview with CNN and today they announced the extension of the experiment for an extra day! Read More…



Happy trading to you! Oanda

by Eric Ebert on 2. April 2012 – 13:48

We have added OANDA to our list of partners. If you haven’t updated your click.to program in awhile, you’ll want to do that now…..I’ll wait. “Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around and desert you….” Oh wait, what? You’re done? Read More…



Apture Vs. click.to

by Eric Ebert on 20. March 2012 – 12:29

I have known about Apture for a while, since they work in the same way as click.to. Apture was born from the idea that you would want more information from a given topic. You could just highlight the word and execute a search on Google, Bing or Yahoo. They were bought in November of 2011 by Google.

No doubt, it is a great function and a thing that we’ve been working to perfect for quite awhile. Google did acquire the talented people at Apture along with the company itself, so we could see some great things coming from the team. Read More…



The Story of Flickr

by Eric Ebert on 20. March 2012 – 09:17

I’ll be looking at some of our partners in the next few entries and trying to share new information as well as the history of the companies themselves. Today I’m starting with the photo sharing platform, Flickr™. Flickr was founded in 2004 in Vancouver (according to Wikipedia) by Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake. They built the original Flickr out of tools that they had developed for their game Neverending. The game was never produced, but Flickr lived on. Read More…



My new favorite function

by Eric Ebert on 14. March 2012 – 11:00

Twitter is a great service. No one doubts that. I use it often, not just for my job, but to keep up with my friends and current events. It’s amazing how fast news travels through Twitter. I find myself checking tweets after I see a news report, because often times it has been on twitter for at least a few hours and the users have already found the best sources for details, including videos and pictures. Unfiltered information flow! Read More…



We’ve stumbled into a partnership with StumbleUpon

by Eric Ebert on 5. March 2012 – 07:33

We are very happy to announce the addition of StumbleUpon to click.to. StumbleUpon is the “personal shopper” of web information or the friend that always has something cool to talk about or show you. The integration allows a user to highlight a word from anywhere (email, PDF, Internet, desktop) and with one click, get a recommendation from StumbleUpon (ie your new best friend) about that topic.

Translation with a single click to dict.cc

by Eric Ebert on 2. March 2012 – 12:31

So today we announce a new Partnership with dict.cc. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s an online dictionary that has been around for quite a while, in fact, I think it may be one of the first. Started officially in 2002, it focuses mainly on German<>English translations, but can be used for a ton of other languages.

They have close to a million translations already and the cool part is, you can submit a word for translation (in any language) and they will have someone check each translation that’s submitted. That means that you can be sure that the translation is correct! Read More…
