[For Mac users.]

One more from Devon Technologies: the free WordService, which adds many options for working with text on the Mac. I’ll mention just two options, which I’ve used again and again: 1. ⌘-" changes straight quotation marks to smart ones (⌘-' does the opposite); 2. ⇧-⌘-C puts initial capitals on words.

Mac Services are found in Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts. There’s no need to memorize ⇧-⌘-C and the like: Services for a given app are available from the menu bar. Click on the name of the app, and you’ll see Services.

Also from Devon Technologies: XMenu.

[Really, can an iPad ever replace the Mac? Not for me, not yet anyway.]
