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'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.

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!

Absolutely indispensable

Double click a word or phrase, and MAGIC happens. How this app is so amazing and so cheap.. I dunno, but I’m very happy I have a license!

Thanks so much for making Popclip, it helps me every single day. (helps my team too, since I funded copies for all my staff)

A gem.

PopClip is a freakishly handy app that I use it dozens of times each day, every day. Once I configured PopClip with the extensions I like it became an essential part of my workflow. This is excellent software and worth every penny.
