WordService is a Mac utility that provides you with multiple text editing options. It might come in handy if you need to immediately insert the current time in your text, remove links from a paragraph, convert lowercase to uppercase, and so much more.

The application doesn't bring you an actual interface. Instead, it displays its options in almost every Mac app that supports text editing. They can be found in the main menu of the app in question -> Services. However, you must first enable the WordService profiles you need. You can do that from the System Preferences panel -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts. Simply check the services you need and the app will do the rest.

My only problem is that the descriptions of the supported text services from the System Preferences panel are truncated and you can't be sure which profiles to enable or not. The System Preferences window cannot be resized, so, you need to take a guess which is which as the WordService doesn't provide you with much help.

However, once you find and enable the needed service, you will notice how well this program works.

In conclusion, it's definitely worth installing this app on your Mac if you're the type of user who spends a lot of time writing and wishes to improve productivity. The program is free, simple to handle, and effective.
