EverClip review

Designed for the popular note-taking app Evernote, EverClip (Web Clipper) proves a handy app to have, but could do with some interface and accessibility improvements. Still, it remains one of the better Web clippers for Android.

Pros

Works: You can clip content either by saving text or graphics to the clipboard, or more conveniently, by sharing URLs to EverClip and then using the app's clumsy yet functional clipping frame to select what you want to save. While the process isn't as straightforward as it could have been if this app was a browser extension, it does work.

How to e-mail yourself a Web page with just one click

There are lots of ways to "clip" a Web page.

For example, you can use Pocket to deliver a nicely formatted mobile version of a page to your phone or tablet, great for content you want to read later. And you can use Evernote to save a page to a digital file cabinet, ideal for organizing and managing stuff you want to keep or share.

But what if you want to e-mail a Web page to yourself? Sure, most browsers have a "save page" option, but that's not the same thing. Rather, there are times … Read more

Review: PopClip for Mac offers mouse-friendly copy/paste controls and available extensions

PopClip for Mac is designed to make copying and pasting text just a bit faster, while providing quick access to a useful set of extensions. By integrating a number of mouse and keyboard shortcuts into your desktop, you can get certain things done much faster than if you were using the standard interface, especially if you use this app to its full potential.

After installing PopClip for Mac you'll need to turn on accessibility options so it can work properly. From there, however, it will live in your menu bar and every time you highlight text, a menu will … Read more

Review: Capture and save any text with ClipTrap's clipboard enhancements.

Skwire Empire's ClipTrap is a free and portable clipboard utility with special appeal for programmers, engineers, or anyone who relies on text files. ClipTrap's developer wanted to capture data from a range of sources on a terminal emulator, so ClipTrap monitors the clipboard and copies any text to its window to be saved, appended, or discarded. ClipTrap can be customized with delimiters and various options, and you can search saved clips from the interface.

ClipTrap's user interface is small and plain but nicely rendered -- just how we like it. We could turn ClipTrap's clipboard monitoring … Read more

Narrative Clip wearable camera to ship November 1

About a year ago, Kickstarter project Memoto hoped to raise $50,000 toward the development of a small, wearable camera that would automatically snap photos throughout your day, the idea being to "lifelog" your experiences in searchable, shareable records.

The campaign raised $550,000.

Unfortunately, the estimated delivery period -- February 2013 -- came and went, and went, and went. But early backers are finally going to receive their cameras: the newly christened Narrative Clip (so named because of a conflict with the Memoto moniker) is scheduled to ship November 1.… Read more

Review: Clean Clips shows and allows you to delete the last text you copied or cut

Clean Clip is a very basic app that does only one thing but that one thing is potentially very useful -- removing information or images from your clipboard. As a privacy tool it's a must for anyone that works with personal or confidential information, and it can clear up memory on your device if you are copying and pasting large chunks of information and images.

While the core functionality of Clean Clip is very useful, the app doesn't do anything else. When you open it you will see what is currently on your clipboard along with a button … Read more

Review: Transfer Mac data to your iPhone and vice versa using ClipAgent for Mac

Clip Agent for Mac allows you to share images and texts between a Mac and an iPhone via Wi-Fi using a clipboard management system. To work, this app requires that you purchase an additional iPhone app. If you're willing to buy this dependent app, you'll be able to quickly sync data between your computer and iPhone, and vice versa.

Clip Agent for Mac installs quickly and features a plain but useable interface. The menu bar offers access to some basic functions such as the ability to add a new item or new text, along with view options and … Read more

How to use Evernote's new Web Clipper for Chrome

On paper, Evernote sounds fairly mundane. An information organizer, woo-hoo. Then, after you use it for a while, you cannot imagine how you functioned without it.

For example, I use the service to preserve and organize things like recipes, instruction manuals, home-repair records, and receipts for major purchases. Most of these items were "clipped" from Web pages using the Evernote plug-in for my browser, though that process has always been a little clunky. The Evernote "clipper" basically just sucked up whatever page I was viewing, giving me few options besides adding tags.
