Just Perfect


Clean, simple, and effective. The most convenient thing is that it will give me data without the need for me to copy/paste whatever I'm working on into the App. I just highlight the words in the application I'm working on and hit Command C and I get all the info in one window. I love it when App developers realize that Less ir More and Simple is Better than Complex. I just want the bloody thing to work without me having to learn yet another overloaded piece of complex and useless mumbo jumbo. Smart people tajke the coplex and make it simple. Any idiot can make something complex. Thanks for a great app. I'm not associated withthis company but I'm glad to have found them. Richard Darlington Brothers Complete Dog Food, LLC

does what it says on the tin


I use an app called Typora which is almost perfect for my situation, but it doesn’t have a good wordcount functionality. In particular, I want to see how many words, chars and spaces are in a selection.

Enter this app to solve the issue. This app counts the words, chars and spaces of the copied text on the clipboard. It doesn’t have an bells and whistles - it just does one job, but it works.

Quick and easy

I love small apps that come with a small price to do exactly the one thing I need it to do. This is a perfect fit every time. Highlight text, copy, it tells you the word count. Fantastic job!
