Dropshelf is a place to hold files, perhaps temporarily during what would otherwise be a long-winded drag-and-drop. This is useful when moving files or collecting items from different folders to attach to an email, for instance. We’ve seen this kind of thing before, but Dropshelf impresses due to its execution, stability, and hidden features.
In preparing this year’s 20 Under $20 list, we loved the idea of presenting 20 killer Mac apps you might not know about — 20 is such a round, pleasant number, and would hopefully let us find something for everyone. But $20 per app might not seem like the bargain-basement price that it used to, even just back in the summer of 2011 when we did our last 20 Under $20 feature.
But guess what? Most of these polished, stable, user-friendly, and utterly useful applications don’t come anywhere close to a full Andrew Jackson, anyway. Four of them are free, and only two cost over $10. We thought about calling it “18 Mac Apps Under $10 and Also Two That Are More Than $10 But Still Less Than $20, and By the Way, Four Are Free,” but that’s just too long, wouldn’t you agree
CloudClipboard is a clever app designed to save whatever you’ve copied into the memory of your iOS device or Mac (using that version of the app) and sync it effortlessly through your iCloud account to all your other devices, be it iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. The way it works is really simple: copy something – be it text, a URL, image, or a web-clip (part of a section of a webpage you can copy) – and then switch to CloudClipboard and that content is automatically added to it.
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Sometimes, we take all the fantastic things we can do with text in a word processor for granted. Clicking, dragging, copying, pasting--these are all things that utilize the visual interface on your Mac, but you can do them in Terminal without having to launch an application. You can the pbpaste and pbcopy commands to count the number of lines or words in the text, reverse it, tidy up HTML code, and create a new text file on your computer. Read on to learn how.
