Clips is a time machine for your clipboard - it remembers everything you copy/paste so you never lose a thing!
- Unintrusive system clipboard monitoring
When Clips is running you won't even notice it. Its advanced architecture allows it to sit in the background and silently add anything you copy.
- Application automatic clipboards
As you go about your daily business, Clips automatically generates and arranges copied items into Application-specfic clipboards. If that's not enough, you can create your own.
- Smart Clipboards
They're exactly what you'd think they are. Define a set of rules and these clipboards will automagically display all past and future matching clips.
- Live Search
Storing dozens or hundreds of clips? Just start typing in the Clips Board and irrelevant items will fly off the screen instantly.
- Abbreviations: on-the-fly text expansion
Assign Abbreviations to your clips and Clips will type/paste them automatically for you when you enter the abbreviation anywhere on your Mac. Use abbreviations for emails, signatures, code, or anything else you can think of.
Clips enables you to define shortcuts to paste the five most recent items. You can also define your own shortcuts to paste additional clips of your choosing.
- Drag and Drop
Want to store an email, a piece of text, a Web page for future reference? Just drop it onto the Clips panel!
What's New in Version 2.0.5

Great app but jumpy animation
UPDATE: Lowering my 4 star rating to a 2 star rating because of big bug: After just one day of using it, the hot corner has stopped working completely. Now when I try to open the "Board" by using the hot corner, I can see the animation coming in and then, suddlently, it reverses and dissapears. I can still access it through the keyboard shortcut, but the quick hot corner feature was important to me. Hope they fix it.
This is a great app with lots of feature and a great interface.
One small thing that bothers me is that the "Board" opening animation is a little jumpy. It takes a tiny bit to load the clips in it, the time is not the problem, it is that while the animation is happening, it shows a large "No clips" message which quickly jumps to the real clips list. This makes the opening animation look very awkward. I know its not a serious issue, but it interrups a great app which should present the clips smootly and seamlessly without interrumpting your workflow, instead it makes it distracting and jumpy. I'm sure it is something that the develper can easily fix, although it worries me that this app has not been updated since february.
This app is well done. I like that it shows all auto saved clips and also breaks it down for what apps they're from, if you want that, too. It seems to do everything it does well and I like it. I have no use for the odd graphical layout options, but I like that it has keyboard shortcuts and a list instead.
I do wish it would have a way for me to specify the location of the saved list so I could use Dropbox or iCloud to have it go across machines.
incredibly useful - too bad for the fatal bug
The usefulness of this app cannot be understated - which makes the bugginess of it so unfortunate.
I am consistently having the issue others are reporting. After a while (seems like 1-2 days of usage) Clips will no longer log new clips. Clips continues to run, board comes up, etc. but no new clips will be added. The application begins working normally again after restarting it. This is an obvious problem, as there is no indication as to when clips are no longer being saved. Really wish this would be addressed by the developer.
