"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

Selection Tool Baloons Like iOS, But So Much Better

I’ve been using this since shortly after its introduction, and could not be happier. It gives the "cut, copy paste" balloon that iOS uses for selected text, but then adds extensions: as a scholar I use a translation extension constantly, along with various linking tools- google, wikipedia, etc. I still can’t believe Apple hasn’t bought this up and incorporated it into the OS (where it belongs). In interface terms, the next best thing to sliced bread.

Never thought I needed it until I tried it - now a MUST HAVE!

I love PopClip. I use it all the time. If you use your Mac a lot and are always trying to find ways to help your productivity with your computer, this is a must have app. All I can say is try it for a while, customize it a bit with any of the dozens of add-ons offered to fit your needs and you will see for yourself. I did. Well worth the $7.

Brilliant utility, wonderfully extendable

In. credibly useful. If you’ve ever wishedy you had certain features just a click away when you select text, like a character count or searching a certain site, PopClip is your answer. It’s clever, easy to use, and polished. Get it.
