Kingsoft Clip review

Kingsoft Clip adds an advanced clipboard to your smartphone or tablet that you can use to quickly copy text and documents via the cloud from your device to another Android device or Windows computer. This well-made, accessible app makes document management between devices much easier, but can end up being quite costly, since it charges you for every 20 clips you transfer once you've run out of the initial free quota.

Kingsoft Clip installs quickly and doesn't require the Kingsoft Office suite to run, though it integrates with it. The app greets you with a polished green and … Read more

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 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
