Populist is a clipboard utility that lives in your system tray. It allows you to input up to a hundred different short text entries that you can then access quickly and easily from your system tray to copy/paste the information into other applications. If you find yourself repeatedly typing in the same information into forms on the Internet or other places, this application will make your job much easier, once you've set it up with the information.

The program allows you to group the entries together into subcategories for easier access. Each entry is limited to 100 characters. Because the data is accessible from your system tray, all it takes is a simple click or two to copy and paste the selected information.

The installation was a little awkward, but once installed, the program performed flawlessly. I set up separate subcategories for email addresses, URLs, Company Information (address, telephone, contacts), Product Information and Marketing Blurbs (tag lines). The 100 character limitation reared its ugly head when I tried to include short product descriptions in the program, but other than that I found the program to be fully functional and very useful in providing shortcuts to filling in forms on the Internet - a welcome alternative to manual data input.

The program is freeware. If you like it, email the author at
