No matter whether you’re creating a new, totally awesome website or putting the finishing touches to your exam or compiling a terrific article that combines all sorts of findings/sources and interviews.

What steals most of your time while doing so and that is no fun at all is the eternal search for recently used passages from texts, code snippets, most recently used phrases, whole pages or a quotation you just copied a few days ago.

Clippings is designed for ease-of-use and most important of all: speed! It won't store yesterdays breakfast toast - but the much more useful remaining 99 percent.

Words, Phrases, Numbers, Paragraphs and Texts...

It won't slow down, hang or crash. Even with thousands of stored clippings. You can paste a recently used clipping into an active window, view or field with two simple steps and in less than a second. If you like you can also re-use your clippings by drag-and-drop - which makes much sense if you need to insert multiple clippings.

If enabled Clippings will automatically auto-save its changes. You might forget to pay your utility bill, but your clippings are save!

Almost the right app for the job


I’ve tried out several of the other clipboard manager applications out there, like `flycut`, `popclip`, `copyless`, etc; however, none of them seem to understand what the whole point of having a clipboard manager is. It isn’t so that you can access the last 10 or even 100 copies, it’s so that you can access however many of the past copies that you want, under Linux I use a clipboard manager that allows me to SPECIFY how many clippings I want it to remember, and there IS NO LIMIT. In addition, it’s shocking just how many of the clipboard managers in the app store don’t support selecting clippings from the taskbar/panel/whatever-you-want-to-call-it, instead they make you select them from a window, which is a bit annoying since you don’t have a single point of reference that is always present and so always easily accessible.

All in all, while `clippings` is far from perfect—unlimited clipping history would be nice—however, that being said, I intend on using `clippings` for quite a while, since I doubt that I will be able to find anything better any time soon.

Works great


Super handy to go back to that something you copied an hour ago.

I really like the easy access in the menu bar.

One gripe: I set it to open at login but I wish it wouldn't pop up the Clippings window open at login as well. Make this function that the app opens, runs in the back with the menu bar and doens't bug me at login.

Great app til they stopped supporting it


Had to reinstall and couldn’t get it to work. Just tried again, from app store, and no go. Finally wrote to their support dept, and they sent a link to download a version that would (supposedly) work, but then it stays blank. So, a clipboard manager that doesn’t remember anything that’s copied is utterly useless. They have since ignored my requests for support. Too bad. I was thinking of buying another app of theirs, but not with that kind of non-support. Unfortunate.
