Customer Reviews

Regarding updates & then regarding the usefulness of Uncluttered.

Updates certainly are a nuisance, but it’s something that is a part of the app store and won’t go away. I’ve bitten the bullet and just gone with automatic updating and now I’m only bothered when apples updates come. You can’t turn that notification off. Now regarding uncluttered, I just purchased it because it was a part of the two dollar tuesday deal and because it was from Software Ambience Corp., the makers of Daisy Disk which is an awesome app. I figured I couldn’t go wrong spending $2 on something they made. I really do like this app, I’ve tried half a dozen similar apps and they always end up being more of an annoyance than a help. I use a bazillion shortcuts as a photographer and what I like about uncluttered is it’s not forcing me to use one that could be replacing a LR or PS shortcut. It’s using the top of the screen and very specifically witht the two finger scroll down. I’m sure this will be worked into my favorite utilities like 1Password, Moom & Launchbar. Thanks guys for the great app.


This app provides a nice little holding area for all those temporary little files and notes that accumulate over a workday — things that you can spend time filing or deleting later, rather than interrupting your work to put things in order. Clipboard history is a great bonus, and allows selected apps to be excluded, which is useful if you do things like copy passwords from a secure database into a browser. It also works seamlessly with VMWare Fusion, even when running Windows in full screen mode: Windows files can be copied to or from file storage, and the clipboard works as expected.

I hope this continues to be maintained well into the future; I’d hate to lose it when Apple releases a future OS update.

Still works wonderfully

Over a year ago when I reviewed this, I suggested Clipboard history. Not sure when it was added, but it is awesome and the favorite addition was another great find. I don’t mind the couple of recent frequent updates, I have phone apps that update every few days and are buggy as heck. I’ve never experienced any bug with this software, so if the developers keep finding bugs, I applad them for doing enough research to uncover them. Granted this is a simple application I can’t imagine it being difficult to program or bug fix, but it has kept true to being intuitive, easy to use and most importantly actively maintained.
