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

Customer Reviews

One of the best utilities ever

Every once in a while there’s a nap that presents an” Eureka!” Moment and I have to say this is one of them! This is an outstanding utility in my hats off to the developer for taking a prehistoric and limited operating system feature and making it sophisticated and exponentially more usable!

As far as customer support, I had a few simple questions that I fired off to the developer and received a response in less than 24 hours! The gentleman, who will go unnamed, personally signed the response rather than your generic, “From the Service Team” which immediately further ingratiated myself to this application and the ones who brought it to market.

Anyone looking to further the functionality of their desk top or laptop computer will find this an indispensable tool within a very short period of time. Oh, did I mention that there are hundreds of free add-ons that further increase the functionality and allow the user to tailor make it to their individual tastes. This utility is an absolute bargain!

One of my favorite utilities - just get it already!

This is my first review. I just felt compelled to put in my 2 cents and let others know how useful this utility is. Once you hae it installed, you’ll find that it quickly becomes part of your workflow and when you use someone else’s computer that doesn’t have it, you’ll miss it…Frankly I’m surprised that Apple didn’t bake this into the OS but I’m glad that the developer got a chance to earn a living from providing this useful tool. I’ve also emailed the developer a couple times and each time I did he was responsive and updated the app to accomodate new programs and suggestions. This is the BEST few bucks that you will spend today….ok, that’s a pretty stong statement to make but give it a try and I think you’ll agree.

Crossover clipboard problem

Great app, better than clipboard history ones for my workflow. Add the extensions and there is no comparison. I have only run into one problem. I use Crossover extensively for a few apps. For Microsoft OneNote, there is a clipboard incompatibility that can cause OneNote to crash upon copy, even if Crossover and OneNote are ignored in PopClip Preferences. The problems go away when PopClip is terminated (slider to OFF did not help). PopClip is a 5-star app if i was not using Crossover/OneNote. Four stars b/c I either enable PopClip and deal with OneNote crashing or disable PopClip (losing the functionality) and continue working with OneNote. Perhaps if MS release OneNote for the Mac that has the same functionality as the other OS version I would not need Crossover, but alas ’tis not to be at this time.
