This app could be better.


I like all of the (three) things that this little app does. However, while viewing your clipboard history, and even identifying which clips are the most important, doesn’t mean that you can REUSE those clips. All I’ve been able to do is look at them. Why can’t I click on an item in the clipboard history and either copy it, or else have it be pasted into a document I’m working on? Also, if, as other reviewers said, this app actually MOVES your files and folders to somewhere deep inside of the operating system, then how do you get them back? And, if you are using Dropbox or some other service to save your files online, then it seems as though the files on Dropbox won’t be the same as the ones you are working on (but you won’t know it).



I have been using Unclutter for a few years now, and it's become an essential tool for me. The key feature is that it's *always* there for me when you need it, and never in the way when I don't.

If You Don’t Have Unclutter, You NEED It.


Simply put, Unclutter is one of my few goto-apps. It is one of the first things I install on any mac and I would be much less productive without it.
