Ratings and Reviews
CopyLess 2 is an essential app
I’ve relied on a clipboard manager for years. When I got my new Mac & made a big jump in the OS, I tried out several new ones. CopyLess 2 is loaded with features. It allows me to convert text to plain text, to sync w/ iCloud, to customize the font, background color, etc. Quick Look works w/ it to allow me to see the entirety of what I have copied, not just a snippet. In one small window it tells me the app from which I copied the item, how long ago I copied it, the type of content, and the number of characters! I can also pause recording whenever I wish. I can toggle if I want to see all my copied items or just the ones I’ve marked as favorites. To paste, I just double click on the clip I want to be active and then I can paste it wherever I want. I can’t imagine being w/o a clipboard manager, and I’m very happy with this app!
Copyless 2 has been a game changer for me!
I am a content producer and spend most of my days doing internet research on the many categories I stay up to date on. The ability to pull out (copy) numerous info snips from one source, then paste them into my info-keeper files and docs without having to bounce back and forth between source and destination. This saves me HUNDREDS of clicks every single day; and every day I bless the makers of Copyless for making it so much easier to do my job. I had done tons of research on the top 10-12 copying apps before settling on this one, and no other app has this kind of simple, easy to use and incredibly useful functionality. The app is so important to me, I would give it more than five stars if I could!!!
Absolutely the best
I've been using this app for over a year and don't know how I got along without it, I use several (11) apps that require PW's and having the ability to click on icon in menu bar and paste into app saves so much time. I used CopyPaste for well over 10 years and this app definately holds it's own and CopyPaste is $30 compared to $5 for CopyLess2, that's a no brainer, which you can't even pay thru App Store. Another great feature is the ability to allow or disallow apps to be recorded in CopyLess2. GREAT APP GUYS!!!
