Recently, I tried to recall a joke I’d heard, but I stumbled over my words and missed the punchline completely. How embarrassing. The lesson? Don’t copy if you can’t paste. On that note, iClipboard’s newest version, 4.1.2, is better than ever.
iClipboard has come a long way since its debut in 2007. Arguably the most practical clipboard manager for the Mac, it lets you save a history of copied items in either rich or plain text, and sort them by date, name, or project. Version 4 introduced a sleeker design, a new search field, and enhanced organization for projects. The latest update fixes some bugs, while also adding several new features, like an improved Preferences menu and additional checks and warnings based on the content of nontext clippings.
iClipboard can be accessed by a popout drawer or a menu bar icon.
Best of all, as of version 4.1, iClipboard is an extremely visual tool. Rather than a nondescript pause/play button, which was frustrating for anyone who easily overlooked the app’s inactive status, there is now a blinking LED indicator and a bar reading “Recording” or “Stopped.” The shelf can float on top of your windows or stay hidden, and five placement options let you find somewhere unobtrusive to stash it, where it won’t interfere with your workflow.
The bottom line. Compared to other copy-and-paste managers, iClipboard still reigns supreme.
64-bit processor, MAC OS 10.6.8 or later
Additional shelf preferences. Improved start/stop recording signals. Better clipping categorization.
Shelf is ultra-sensitive when in "hiding" mode.
