iClip is a multiple clipboard & scrapbook manager that enables you to keep a history of almost anything you copy, instead of only the last thing.

iClip was designed to be accessed as simply as the Mac's Dock. Just move your cursor to the side of the screen and iClip pops out for instant use.

Get things into and out of iClip with hotkeys, drag & drop, or just 1-click.

Organize your stored clips into multiple sets and have them ready to paste in an instant.

Imagine having common email replies, logos and signatures, code-snippets, and more just a single click or keyboard shortcut away.

A Clipboard Utillity Done Right

I found iClip years and years ago when I was working on my degree and needed a utility that allowed me manage my copy and pastes and especially be able to save snippets that I used all the time to be reused with a couple clicks as well as be able to go back to previous clips and reuse them. Other than the word processer I was using, it was the most used application on my mac when I was writing engineering papers and reorganizing them during edits and revisions as well as saving time by resuing snippits of text that I frequently retyped. It was lifesaver then. Many years later I still use it. Not to the same degree and not as intensive as frequently but it still is my go-to clipboard application and I use it many time per day. It doesn't take up space menu bar or dock. it stays hidden until I need it simply by moving my mouse to the edge of the screen. It is very well designed, it is incredibly feature rich. It works with issues and has for years and years. It is worth every penny.

My Favorite Clipboard Manager for 20 years

I have used Butler, FlyCut, PasteBot, ClipMenu, and a dozen other ones. This iClip software is my favorite one for its ease of use, visible bins, configurations abilities, apple script, and the list goes on. I have a terminal brain disease with severe memory loss. This app is my daily, all day, goto for new clips, customized storage bins, image captures, etc. The ease of use is very impressive to me as my brain disease makes it hard to learn new tasks. The icons are so intuitive, even my silly brain can easily understand what will happen with each click. The keyboard customization is awesome too. And I can even choose to keep the iClip bins visible at all times. Wow and Thank you is what I say to iClip Developers. Way to GO! OH! and I was so shocked when I select text within any app, and click the right arrow next to the empty bin, viola! No copy/paste needed. No copy needed. Selected text will go into the bin with a mouse click (or of course command c...)

incredibly useful

An app I take for granted everyday. I set my preferences for iClip to open automatically at boot-up and it remains hidden until I need it, which is often. So simple to use, yet so very clever...simplicity and complexity built together. Copy as many clips as you wish; paste where you want, when you want; clear each clip individually or all in one click to free up your clipboard, or keep the clips permanently as you wish. Choose from several skin appearances and dock customization. The app clipboard remains out-of-the-way until you need it, then simply move your cursor to screen edge to activate it. Wala! Thank you iClip. No need to search for a better clipboard manager.
