"As a fan of handy Mac menubar apps, LittleIpsum rightfully finds its place in mine. Convenient. Simple. Useful. A must for anyone that designs or writes code.” — Brian Hoff of The Design Cubicle

“It’s the swiss army knife of latin text generators.” — Trent Walton

"Have been trying out LittleIpsum. Much faster than other methods. Access OS-wide, too. I still use loremify, but sometimes waiting for dashboard takes forever.” — Luke Dorny

What’s New

Version 2.0.6

• Mouse hover is no longer offset on El Capitan
• Removed anonymous usage metrics where I was able to see how frequently, and what amount of latin an anonymous user was copying

Reliable and a great interface

For developers creating dummy content, this is a very valuable tool to have. The interface is unique and intuitive as well. One addition that would make it even more solid would be keyboard shortcuts so that the menu item doesn't have to be triggered with a mouse every time.

Great app!

As a designer LittleIpsum is a great little app that quickly generates placeholder text for my designs and speeds up my workflow. Highly recommended!

I’m a graphic designer and I work with many applications which don’t all have the function to generate placeholder text. This app just does it perfectly.
