    December 25, 2010  |   By longviewlarry

    "It's a Lie! It's not free, it's only a trial !!"

    November 22, 2010  |   By flux21

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    Worked find for a few days until the trial period was over.

    Cons

    After a few days the trial period runs out and then the software just keeps bugging you every few minutes asking you to buy the software... even when you're off using your other applications. cnet page it says "free", this MUST be changed to "trial"

    Summary

    After a few days the trial period runs out and then the software just keeps bugging you every few minutes with pop-up on your screen asking you to buy the software... and this is VERY annoying because it does it even when you're using your other applications. cnet page it says "free", this MUST be changed to "trial"... actually this type of deceptive ANNOY software scams should be banned from the cnet community.

    "Dishonest: "M8 FREE Clipboard" Is NOT Freeware At All"

    September 16, 2010  |   By atisch49

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    60 days of a borderline-useful program.

    Cons

    After 60 days, Nagging starts.
    First informs you that you've unwittingly also downloaded a 2nd different program in addition to "M8 FREE Clipboard" and asks to install--no price given
    Nagging particularly annoying as it comes up frequently.

    Summary

    I'm disappointed that CNET allows this to be rated Freeware, because its not. Totally dishonest to actually call their product "M8 FREE Clipboard". Freeware is a a different concept from Nagware and it should clearly be labeled as such, or at least as "Free to Try". The M8 company is also dishonest as they have downloaded a second program without your knowledge, which you can activate at a cost (Not mentioned in Pop-Up). It's unclear as to whether it can be cleanly uninstalled. It's only after you refuse to activate this program that the Nagging begins about the program actually entitled "M8 FREE Clipboard", NOT being freeware at all. Overall I would have continued to use the product if it weren't for the gross dishonesty of the program. This is the type of company that its always a good idea to steer clear of. I'm uninstalling in favor of either a real piece of freeware or at least a commercial product that is honest up-front.

    "Would be good without nag ads"

    August 21, 2010  |   By saiphfire

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    Easy to use, small memory footprint

    Cons

    Continual pop-up ads the entire time you use it

    Summary

    I suspect many of the people who wrote reviews here wrote them right after trying the program. At that point it seems pretty good. BUT, after you've used it for a while, it starts popping up ads trying to get you to buy one if M8's paid programs. I would be fine with it popping up an ad when you start the program, but it pops up ads frequently, whenever you have the program running. I had intended to run the program constantly in the background (what use is it otherwise), which means that I was getting ads all day long. I am now uninstalling and choosing another multi-clipboard.

    "Extremely useful"

    July 28, 2010  |   By georgebeck24

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    Free - Stores up to 20 clips - Saves moving back and forth to various programs.

    Cons

    Long learning curve due to poor explanation of instructions. It's really simple to use if directions were phrased differently.

    Summary

    I almost uninstalled this program because I was so frustrated with the way I thought it worked. When I finally figured it out using trial and error I wouldn't know what to do without it. The terminology used in the instructions is very clear to someone who understands the program but very confusing to new users. If they were re-written with a "newbie" helping it would would be an instant winner!

    "The adverts bug to much to keep it! I uninstalled it!"

    July 1, 2010  |   By jn65

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    It is very useful when you are doing a whole lot of cut and pasting. Just cut or copy all the sections of text or pictures that you want, open the clipboard program, and then paste them into your new document in whatever order is needed.

    Cons

    I could not stand the constant pop-up demand box to buy their product (every time the computer comes out of sleep or the lid is opened). Thus I uninstalled the program. I will install and use it when I have a project.

    "Not truly free. Nagware"

    June 18, 2010  |   By giessen

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    Before it starts nagging with "please upgrade to the full paid version" screens, this is a fine program.

    Cons

    It nags multiple times per hour. It starts doing this many weeks after you have installed it, so you've already got used to it and have started to think that it is really freeware. This is an unusually annoying and disingenuous selling method.

    Summary

    What can we think about the M8 people for using such methods of deceit....
    I keep being amazed about CNET's deluded rating policies. This isn't 'freeware' as classified by CNET. It's so-called nagware, that becomes unusable after some time. Call it shareware, or a limited-time free trial, but don't contribute to the deception by saying it's free.

    "This download is now "free" in name only"

    June 4, 2010  |   By soccerdad973

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    Last 25 saved clips is very useful and older versions were excellent,

    Cons

    Constant pop up advertisement to get you to buy the pay version called Spartan renders this download annoying and certainly not "free". Close the pop up and it reappears within minutes. This did not occur in previous versions.

    Summary

    If you have an older version DO NOT UPGRADE! The current version 12.04 is not usable as a "free" download.

    "Good program, very useful."

    June 1, 2010  |   By JayDP111

    Version: M8 Free Clipboard 12.04

    Pros

    Simple to use.

    Cons

    Clearing individual entries could be a little easier, but minor.

    Summary

    Very useful program! (Should have been built into Windows!).
