Editors' Notes

Easily access context-specific actions.


Greatb Little App!

I do a lot of copy and paste for my web site and anything to make life easier and faster is a great help. I bought PopClip after reading the reviews and was immediately impressed with its simple elegance. I did find that it did not work with TextWrangler so I emailed support. Got a very quick reply saying how to get it working...

Please will you try the following procedure:
1) Begin selecting text in TextWrangler.
2) Before you release mouse button, press Caps Lock.
3) 'Learn' will appear; click!

And it worked like a charm. Great app and great support guys!

I use PopClip in conjunction with iCopy, copy and paste history app and they save me a lot of time every day. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED


Saved me ages...

I’d been looking for ages for a way to Chicago-case the titles of all the papers I’ve been citing. It’s tedious to do manually, and hard to get right. This little gem sorted out the whole lot in half an hour!

Love it!
