Work at the speed of thought by augmenting your text. See what other are saying and then download it. It's free and we'd love to hear from you.

• MacUser: Revolutionary
• TUAW: One of those utilities that you can't live without once you start using it
• BBC: So useful you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it
• CNN: A great tool
• Stephen Fry: Get used to it & you're hooked

When you use Liquid, commands become so quick you'll start flying through your information - you will work at the speed of thought, not at the speed of hunting for icons to click.

Have a look at to see a video demonstration to learn more about how powerfully easy it is to use.

Integrated with the Author word processor and the Reader PDF reader applications.

Note: Click on the ‘gears’ icon on the right in Liquid to access the Preferences.

To Customise The Keyboard Shortcut:

To change the Keyboard Shortcut to the more convenient command-space (or anything else you prefer), open System Preferences, click on Keyboard, make sure you are in the Shortcuts tab, then, in the column on the left:

1) Click on Spotlight and disable command-space
2) Click on Services and scroll down to Liquid and double-click on the current Liquid shortcut, then set it to be command-space (or whatever you prefer).

Thank you and please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions or comments:

A good, focused utility - recommended

Simple to use. With some text selected in your frontmost app, it puts search or referencing for that text selection a few keystokes from hand, especially good for those who like to keep their hands on the keyboard. For instance, to search Google Scholar for somethnig, select text - Cmd+Shift+2 - G - O and the search appears in your web browser.

Besides search & reference there are additional functions for sharing content (so blogs/emails/social media), translation, unit conversion and copying in various rich/plain forms of text encoding

I ended up also getting the Pro add-on as it lets me define my own entries (such as searches into specific reference libraries); this too is easy to set up and allows further customisation of what can be accessed quickly without breaking one’s flow.

Brilliantly Written and Indispensable - You need this

It’s a very thoughtfully designed tool that’ll save you a great deal of time doing the things you do habitually every day without thinking. Will be upgrading out of respect for all the work that Frode has clearly put into this. Keep doing what you’re doing Frode!

Thank you!

Great, with a little effort to change paradigm (sort of)

An astonishing tool for the modern researcher/writer.
Plenty of room for further development, but a remarkable yet very simple (to use) tool.

It needs to recognise eMail client alternatives to Apple Mail (such as Spark, for example) and there are a few tweaks that'd make the experience a little more fluid (like slightly more comprehensive right-click drop-down menu support in any App).

Otherwise a game changer: a bit like going back in time about 15 years and re-engineering today's computer facilities with the future in-mind.

Definitely a future-thinking developer with real talent and insight.

Love it!

Developer Response ,

HI there and thank you. We can't change the right-click menu in apps since that is their domain, Liquid works as a 'Service' but the cool bit is that you can apply a keyboard shortcut to it so that helps. Do you really use Liquid to email? If so, please email me and we'll make it work the way you want to:
