Those of us who have written for Mac360 through the years call ourselves ‘app evangelizers.’ Why? Well, many of our reviews are for apps that we use ourselves, or would recommend to others (knowing the issues with supporting a recommendation).
So, instead of focusing our attention on the standard fare from Apple, Microsoft, Adobe and other large companies which crank out apps by the dozen, we focus on what we like and use. We evangelized RSS readers before they were popular. Ditto for backup utilities. And clipboard managers.
Live The Easy Life
Here’s a good example of a Mac utility which can make your Mac life a little better. Everyone who uses a Mac knows all about cut and paste, or copy and paste.
What you cut or copy is saved on the Mac’s built-in clipboard– one item at a time. Copy one item and it’s saved on the clipboard. Copy something else, and the last item is auto deleted.
What if you could keep all those copied or cut items in a library-like list? That would make it easy to paste them back into a document without copying them again first.
That’s what Paste does. It’s a Mac clipboard history manager. Copy text, links, files, images or whatever, and Paste stores them as history clips, easily retrievable when you want them.
There’s a built-in preview mode so you can see the details of what you copied. That includes rich text, plain text, transparent images, photos, website URLs, and more. Cut or copy like you normally do. Paste saves it.
Paste can hold hundreds or thousands of copied or cut items, so a search option is built-in. Whatever is saved on the Mac’s clipboard at the moment can also be shared to others using AirDrop.
The app resides in the Mac’s Menubar so it’s always available for other apps. Just click to retrieve and re-paste an item that was saved in the library. Paste isn’t as powerful or feature laden as PTHPasteboard or CopyPaste Pro, but it’s less expensive and easier to use.
Paste is a good way to improve your Mac life with a little more efficiency and productivity, as well as accuracy.
