Best, full featured, copy, paste, save...


…organize, repaste utility I’ve ever used. Many IOS apps I use are not necessary to have across all three of my devices: iPad Pro, iPhone7 and MacBook, however, some are and make my life a whole lot easier, and this is one of them. As a student and entrepreneur with a busy schedule and multiple todo lists, calendars, writing assignments, notes, etc, I am copying and pasting information all day, all night and it's nice to have a way to categorize and keep all of these pieces of important information so I can make a time to go through my lists and assign what I have copied into all of the appropriate areas. Also, I use digital textbooks at all times when possible , plus need to read many research PDF's all of which allow for note taking, which allows me to go back, copy and paste my notes into a folder for study guides or for writing papers.
I know that there is now a universal copy and paste feature across all new Apple devices, but this is an easy, fully functional, quick, convenient and inexpensive app that should come as the standard for copying and pasting.

Great app, but not completely intuitive


I’ve used Copied for a long time, but after I installed it to a new MacBook Pro with macOS High Sierra, I noticed a couple of very minor issues. First, the default installation had the Copied window detached on my desktop and there was no apparent way to close it. Also, by default every time I click “Copy” I had to listen to Copied’s sound. It took me awhile to find where to turn this off since it’s call “Tone” in the Preferences and not “Sound”, which to me is not intuitive. Also, I finally found how to display the control for closing the UI window. It was a sub-line in Preferences under “Detach Window”. Again, could be a lot more intuitive.

The good part is that Copied is one of the best clipboard managers available if you’re only comparing those which work on both the Mac and iOS devices, and there are only a few. I think the UI could be prettier, but that’s only my opinion and certainly doesn’t stop Copied from doing its job. Some of the nicest looking clipboard managers cost more and do less.

Reliable time-saving utility


I’ve been using Copied for some 1.5 years now (bascially, since development of aText stopped), and it has proven itself as a reliable must-have utility in my everyday workflow: I work with content (editing and writing) across multiple devices (MBP, iMac, iPad, and iPhone): Copied allows me to collect and categorize links, images, and text snippets on the go or at my desk and making them available to me no matter what screen I happen to be at to finalize my draft. Copied also comes with a plethora of custamization optjons (including setting the amount of items it allows you to collect). Cloud sync has been reliable, and in terms of ease-of-use no other Clipboard manager comes close (and I’ve tried quite a few, from aText to Pasteboard — even if aText where still under development, I’d prefer Copied for the ease of use, performance and because it comes with an iOS companion app.
