Pros & Cons:

Some tagsets, such as for HTML, Zip Codes, SQL Basics,etc., are available.
Limited window size, no option to pass text through the clipboard on a per item/tagkey basis, doesn't allow hotkey triggers, some features restricted to registered users.

Our Review:

Tagkeys allows you to auto-insert text and graphics by simply typing a 'tag', and capture text and images from any source with a single click.

As of version 2.2, there's no way to increase the width of the main window, no option to pass text through the clipboard on a per item/tagkey basis, and it doesn't allow for hotkey triggers.

I'm not too fond of the interface (I'd love to minimize it to the taskbar for when I'm working with other programs), but with some work this could just be one of the best freeware options.

A few features are only available to registered users: import and backups - and apparently you can't create a new "tagset" either (that's a group of "tagkeys") unless you're registered! If it can be determined where the program stores your data, that file can be backed up and restored manually, thus getting around two of the registered-only features.

Still, it would be nice if ALL of the features were available for free, especially the ability to create new tagsets.
