Snippets functionality not as expected

Xander Tigerclaw

I grabbed this solely for the Snippets feature (as the rest of it effectively duplicates standard Dock Items’ functionality?!), but it doesn’t work quite the way I’d hoped. To use it, you basically create a stack of files yourself (exact supported types unknown? text files work at least) in its internal folder, and then choosing one from the menu places its content on the pasteboard and simulate a “Paste” in the frontmost app.

In other words: if you’d copied something to the clipboard yourself, and then used a Snippet, “your” copied item is gone (blown away and replaced by the snippet content itself). No mention of that anywhere on the App Store description or the DEVON website.

A small niggle to some, and a great idea, but its implementation in its current form basically makes it too “messy” for my regular use; I won’t *always* remember not to have anything important in my clipboard before I use a Snippet… :-/

Great app, and provides an easy access to all files. The only reason why it isn't 5 stars and why it isn't a great replacement for finder is because you cannot do project actions, such as copy files or move them to trash.
Still a great app, though. And nice job allowing us to put it to the right of apple's default menu bar apps.
So to sum it up, this app is AWESOME! Just what I needed.



Really inovative app that you will find useful for your everyday activities.
