Enter TextFridge. This cleverly designed Mac app is like a digital refrigerator– only so long as you think of the fridge as a place to store your valuables. At a basic level a real refrigerator stores things and it’s easy to setup and use. TextFridge, too.
There are many ways to store text snippets that we use regularly on our Macs. TextEdit can do it, but it’s cumbersome. There are many text snippets apps available to store valued pieces of text we use often, but none of them are quite like TextFridge.
Seriously, it does not get much easier than this.
If you have a list of text snippets you use over and over again– email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, credit card information; anything of the boilerplate genre– TextFridge can store it and make it drop dead drag and drop easy to insert wherever you need it.
Drag and drop is your friend.
Add up to 150 text snippets to TextFridge. It’s easy. You can assign a category to snippets via the color icons so they’re easy to find. Then, well, just drag the snippet you want and drop it onto wherever it should go.
How cool is that?
TextFridge is easy to setup– just add the next you want and give it a name. It’s as easy to use as drag and drop to wherever you want the text snippet to go.
Of course, having text snippets on your Mac and making them available to be useful are two different things. TextFridge has an option to pop up on the Mac’s screen with a keyboard shortcut, or stay on top of all other applications.
See? Easy peasy.
I would like to see iCloud or Dropbox sync so snippets can be saved from Mac to Mac.
TextFridge fully exemplifies what we’ve done at Mac360 since mid-2004. We have nearly 14 years of finding and reviewing Mac applications we would use ourselves, or recommend to family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, or associates; knowing there’s a bit of implied support that comes along with for the ride.
We don’t devote much time to the likes of Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Cloud apps or even Apple’s own Pages, Numbers, and Keynote because those are staples of the Mac platform. Instead, we dig around to find useful applications from Mac developers who truly understand that necessity is the mother of invention.
