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.

Need more control? iClip is fully scriptable with AppleScript. You can have scripts that specify what to record, filter out unwanted data, or post process a stored clipping. Sample scripts are available on the web site in the Help section.

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.

Use daily... 100s times a day

I don't remember when exactly, but I think I purchased iClip 3-4 years ago. Went through many Mac OS updates and iClip still works like a charm. Currently on macOS Catalina. This is my most used upility. I'm eBay power seller, plus running several on-line stores, so as you can imagine, I'm costantly re-using the same clips, phrases, email replies, and sentances. It saves me countless hours. I would categorize this utility as Business nessesaty and not just productive software. iClip is very easy to use, highly customizable and very light on processor. I love the fact that you can backup and restore Clips, arange them in Folders and Title them, choose the monitor you want it to appiare (I have 2 monitors), assigne mouse and keyboard shorcuts and many other customizations. Tried many other utilities, but iClip is the best, on my oppinion. By the way, I never had any issues or crashes... in the words of Apple "It just works!" Thanks developers for this extrimely usefull software.

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...)
