Editors' review

Those who often cut and paste text or other information may have the need to go back and track these items. Ondesoft ClipBuddy for Mac archives and manages clipboard usage well for those who need it.

Ondesoft ClipBuddy for Mac is available to try for free for 15 days with no additional restrictions. The full version requires payment of $29.95 to unlock. Installation takes place without issues and prompts the user to enter a full version product key when it first starts. This can be dismissed if the user wants to use the trial version. The program itself did not have any instructions, which was a disappointment due to the confusing interface and unclear program features. After some searching, we located instructions via the developer's Web page. Basically, the program tracks cutting and pasting to the computer clipboard over time. Users can later go back and reorganize the information for better retrieval and organization. When the program is loaded in the background, it automatically stores anything copied, including text from word processors or Internet URLs, among others. The small interface is difficult to read in its default size, but this can be changed. The program works well, but those who do not constantly organize the data will likely find the amount of information unmanageable after a few days of steady use.

While basic and lacking an intuitive interface, Ondesoft ClipBuddy for Mac performs its limited function well, and may be a viable option for those few users who need to track and organize clipboard use.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Ondesoft ClipBuddy for Mac 2.02.2.

    "Can't use Force Quit when it hangs; have to restart"

    July 15, 2014   |   By dare2cre8

    Version: Ondesoft ClipBuddy 2.10.26

    Pros

    Really robust clipboard extender app--lots you can do with it.

    Cons

    Sometimes it hangs--not a lot, but every once in awhile. But there's no way to force quit when that happens; you must restart your computer instead.
    Hasn't been saving urls as advertised -- don't know why.
    Limited help and support--wish they treated their customers better.

    Summary

    I would love this app if it didn't hang and then require restarting the computer to get back on track. I don't have time for that nonsense--very disruptive.

    "Too confusing and complex"

    July 11, 2013   |   By CEMR

    Version: Ondesoft ClipBuddy 2.10.1

    Pros

    It seems to track absolutely EVERYTHING you've copied.

    Cons

    The interface is confusing, too much is stored, and you can't exclude Preference Panes which use the clipboard, such as TypeIt4Me, so you can end up drowning in hundreds of expanded abbreviations, trying to find that one thing you want.

    Summary

    I will stick with iClip, which is a lot easier to use, and simply appears at the side of the screen whenever you need it.
