Ratings and Reviews
I spent the last several hours going through each of the clipboard managers that are on the App Store. They were all half-baked feature-wise and buggy. I was ready to give up until I came across AnyBuffer. What a pleasant surprise. It does what it claims and does it very well. I paid for the Pro upgrade only a few minutes after I started using it. You can tell that the developer paid a lot of attention to it. Kudos!
(Feature request: is it possible to define the contents of Smart Folders based on the extension of a file? Currently the only options are the default types. For example, it will be great if I can put all of my markdown files in their own smart folder: currently they mixed with plain (non-markdown) text files.)
I can’t work without it!
Warning: this app is addictive—once you set it up and complete the small learning curve, it’s very hard to work without it. Whether you like to save clips while surfing to refer to later, or whether you are taking notes for research, AnyBuffer is a big step-saver. On an iPad With SlideOver mode, AnyBuffer is at its best.
I use it for study of the Scriptures, in slide-over. It’s even replaced the similar function in my Bible study app, for ease of use and because it is so simple to clear the new import tagging function makes it possible to sort.
I have used personal computers for 38 years and everything from Mac to Linux. While function is most important to me with any app, I still become giddy over clipboard apps that are well-designed and pleasing to use. And then I have two thoughts that pop up…(1) I’m excited to imagine where the designer is going with it, and, (2) I hope it is maintained for many years. The developers of AnyBuffer “get” iOS and MacOS. It blends in and plays with the OS so well it begins to feel fully native to the environment.
To the developer—Awesome app!
While I have found this app helpful when doing research for school I have found that it is very annoying when I want to find a snippet of text that I took off a website. All I see are empty white blocks that do not offer me any information of what is inside of them, so I have to go through them all one by one, and since I cannot scroll in between files I have to exit and reach the board to pick yet another file. As for the sharing tools it is also very annoying to have to chose a viewing format after clicking the file in order to physically see it. And then to exit you have to click twice (exit the sharing format, then exit the open file) which makes browsing unnecessarily complicated. I like the concept of the app and it has helped me write my school papers, but all of these issues need to be fixed before it can receive a higher score of stars.
