ZIPKEY is a complete city-level directory of 5-digit United States zip codes, 3-digit telephone area codes, and time zones, combined with a keyboard enhancement program.
With ZIPKEY you will never ever again have to manually type in the name of a United States city or town.
When run from your desktop, ZIPKEY allows you to instantly access any of the over 42000 zip codes in the directory, searching by zip code, state-and-city, city-only, or area code.
If you want to use ZIPKEY just to occasionally look up a zip code or area code, just double-click on the ZIPKEY icon, and follow the prompts.
ZIPKEY achieves its full power when placed resident in memory. In this mode, you can invoke ZIPKEY from within any other program. You can type just a 5-digit zip code, and ZIPKEY will make the program you're running think that you have typed any or all of the following: the city name, the state name and/or abbreviation, the zipcode, the area code, the time zone, and any other combination of fixed keystrokes. (See screenshot) This "keystroke output" can be in any format that you wish.
ZIPKEY is completely configurable. You can specify the "hotkey" that will invoke ZIPKEY when you're running another program. You can also specify alternate hotkeys to allow any number of different formats when ZIPKEY feeds the city, state and zip back through your keyboard.
ZIPKEY has a sophisticated abbreviation algorithm, allowing you to specify a limit to the length of the city name, so that it will fit into a fixed field.
ZIPKEY is incredibly small in size. Its database is based on data from numerous sources, including the U.S. Postal Service. It has been extensively cross-checked, to ensure accuracy and consistency.
ZIPKEY has been a highly successful DOS application since 1989, and a 16-bit Windows application since 1998. This version of ZIPKEY is a complete rewrite as a native, 32-bit Windows application.
