Hook works with the selected item of the foreground app. You can copy a link to the item, bookmark it, share it, link it to something else, access linked items, and more. Hook keeps you in “the zone”.

Instantly create and use links to all kinds of information: files, emails, tasks and much more! Paste links in your notes, task lists, or anywhere else where you will need them! Use them to instantly return to the information you need, wherever it is.

To copy a link to the current item in the foreground app, just invoke Hook’s contextual window (⌃H or with menu bar icon) and use the Copy Link command (⌘C).[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][agni_video video_type=”2″ self_url=”/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Gif-1-Universal-Copy-Link-v2-100-size.mp4″][vc_wp_text]

After you’ve copied a link to an item, you can ‘hook it’ to another item. A ‘hook’ is a contextual two-way link. You can ‘hook’ an item to as many other items as you want. When you invoke Hook on an item, you see everything you have hooked onto it. Easily navigate back & forth between hooked items.

For instance, navigate between a draft and its outline, your todo list, and sources (PDFs, web pages, etc.)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#b7bcbf”][vc_column width=”1/2″ padding_top=”0″ padding_bottom=”30px”][vc_empty_space][vc_custom_heading text=”Automatic Smart-Bookmarking” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_custom_heading text=”Find anything you’ve linked” font_container=”tag:h5|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]Other bookmarking apps have 2 major limitations: they can only bookmark web pages; you need to remember to manually add the bookmark. We at CogSci Apps discovered the clearest signal of information relevance: that you copied a link to it!

So, Hook automatically bookmarks whatever you link. Not just web pages, but important items from all your favorite apps: emails, tasks, presentations, spreadsheets, etc. Type ⌘F in Hook for instant gratification.

Paste the link in your notes, todo list, doc-review comments, tasks lists, even in emails. Clicking on the link will (a) open the PDF, and (b) auto-scroll to that specific location in the file! You can even share these links with others: they can open the shared files on their Macs, like magic!

Search-tools can help me find information the first time. But I also need to instantly retrieve prior information relevant to my current focus without searching again.

Because most work on a Mac revolves around webs of related resources, we at CogSci Apps invented Hook, which is loaded with completely original information-retrieval features.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row bg_color=”#f5f7f6″][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”Get more out of your favorite apps” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:center|color:%233e3c36″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_custom_heading text=”Know your bookmarks are private” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%233e3c36″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]

Hook stores your bookmarks on your Mac. You can sync your data across devices with iCloud or a folder of your choice. Either way, your data are not sent to our servers. Learn more.

Nobody wants to rummage around for documents when they’re on a roll. Stay focused on your writing by letting Hook recall your outline, reference material, notes, images, contact information and more right when you need it. Learn more.

[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Become a note-taking ninja” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%233e3c36″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]Never wonder again about what a specific note is referring to. Use Hook to New (⌘N) on any item (ebook, PDF, email, etc.) and Hook will instantly create a new note in the note-taking app of your choice, and Hook will: name the note, store it, tag it, bookmark it, and link it to the item. Invoke Hook on the original item and you will see a link to your note, and vice versa!

Hook connects a raft of great apps on macOS such as DEVONthink, Merlin Project, OmniFocus, RStudio, Craft, Sublime Text, OmniOutliner Pro, Curio, nvUltra, Marked2, TextMate, Scrivener, Tinderbox, Bookends, GoodTask, Nisus Writer, PDFPen Pro, Skim, Obsidian, BibDesk, Sketch, OmniGraffle, EagleFiler, Keep It (by Reinvented Software), Things, HoudahSpot, Trickster, LibreOffice, MaiMate, Airmail, Apple Mail,TaskPaper, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, BBEdit, and many more 😊. Hook links your research and development!

Hook file links are much better. Select a file in Finder (or open it), invoke Hook (⌃H) and Copy Link (⌘C). You’ll get a hook://file/ link. You can move or rename the file without breaking the link. It’s like a Finder alias; but it’s (a) a link; (b) more versatile; and (c) shareable. 😊 Learn more.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Be nicer to your network: share Hook links” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%233e3c36″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]It’s a hassle to receive an email asking you to edit a file, only to have to dig around the Finder, iCloud, Dropbox, or a Git folder to find the file. With one Hook command (⌘C), you can instantly create a shareable link that your recipients can click which reveals the specified file on their Mac! You can even send them a link that opens a PDF they have on their Mac and automatically scrolls to the specific location in that PDF!

Share links to emails too! While an email is open or selected (in Apple Mail, etc.), invoke Hook, and Copy Link (⌘C) creates a link to that email; send it to others, and when they click that link, Hook opens the email on their Mac.

As long as the recipient has the shared file or email, and the free version of Hook: it’s like magic, and they’ll love you for respecting their time. Who knows, maybe they’ll return the favor?
