Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


PopClip appears when you select text with your mouse on your Mac. Instantly access context-specific actions including copy and paste, plus extensions like Send to Evernote. If you select text containing a URL, email address or file path, PopClip can open it. Select a misspelled word, and PopClip offers corrections. Select any text to do a web search with those terms, or select a single word to get the dictionary definition.

More than 100 free extensions are available, including Paste and Match Style, Translate, Send to Evernote, Word Count, Capitalize and much, much more. See

Please note: PopClip works in most Mac apps, but not in all. For an up-to-date list of known incompatible apps, see

"PopClip has achieved near perfect integration with Mac OS X and seems like a default feature of the operating system. For that alone, it is worth its asking price." — The Next Web

"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

"If you love the tap and copy functionality of iOS and want it on your home computer, PopClip is a simple app that adds similar functionality" — lifehacker

"an essential part of my workflow ... 10/10" — Mac.AppStorm

"I think even Mac traditionalists might be tempted." — Dan Frakes, MacWorld

"I'm buying it right now." — Leo Laporte, MacBreak Weekly

What's New in Version 1.5.6

This is a small update, mainly to fix an issue with PopClip on macOS Sierra. I have fixed the annoying bug where "Icon Hidden" dialog would appear every time at startup if you have the menu bar icon hidden. Plus other minor tweaks and fixes. Thanks to those who have reported bugs and made suggestions. As usual you can contact me by email on and @pilotmoon on Twitter. Cheers, Nick.

Love it!

This tool is like sharing clipped text or links on speed - it saves tonnes of time during the day - especially to safari, mail or Evernote, which is where most of my data goes. I actually turned it off for a day to see if it made any difference and by lunchtime was pretty cranky and slowed down - you don’t realise how much you use it until it’s not there. Awesome little tool - magic!


This simple addition to my tools is something I cannot imagine not having now that I’ve used it for a couple of years. I highly recommend this app. It puts so many actions right where you need them, a click away, instead of zooming across you monitor or remembering the shortcut key combination. Buy this app!

A Desert Island App

I don’t normally write reviews. But it occurred to me that I use this little app constantly throughout the day, and completely take it for granted. It is so essential that it feels like part of the OS. If you use a MacOS, you should not hesitate to buy this app. You won’t regret it.
