"PopClip has achieved near perfect integration with Mac OS X and seems like a default feature of the operating system. For that alone, it is worth its asking price." — The Next Web

"an awesome new utility from Pilotmoon that makes the copy & paste function on your Mac look just like the copy & paste function on your iPhone" — Cult of Mac

"If you love the tap and copy functionality of iOS and want it on your home computer, PopClip is a simple app that adds similar functionality" — lifehacker

"an essential part of my workflow ... 10/10" — Mac.AppStorm

"I think even Mac traditionalists might be tempted." — Dan Frakes, MacWorld

An amazing app from an amazing developer

Six stars if I can.
It was sad to see this app crashes instantly on high Sierra. The developer worked around the problem in about 24 hours.
I have to say that I can't think about using Mac without this app. While searching, I found this little gem and I bought it immediately without waiting for it to go on sale. In fact, I am ready to pay double or triple price to have it.
Dear mac user, if you are doing any copy and paste, do yourself a favour and don't hesitate to buy this app; it will be the most worthy money you will ever spend on the Mac app store.

The Best Utility Out There

I would hate to use my Mac without PopClip. I invoke it dozens of times a day, and it never fails to save me time and effort. Customizable, although there’s a large library of built-in functions. Support is excellent. Buy it.
