Editors' Review

by   / December 21, 2013

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 pop up and ask if you want to copy, cut, or paste, along with a search button. This is the core functionality of the app, but you can add more from the Preferences, change how these options appear, or go to the Web site and install new extensions that expand on what the app can do by adding delete functions, duplication functions, and more. The app is designed to be a hybrid macro system and it works well if you take the time to build those shortcuts into it based on what you use most often.

PopClip makes a fairly quick task slightly faster, so it's not a necessity for everyone. The app is free to try, though, so if you want to know if it will make your life easier, you can download and check out the full version for free with a $3.99 upgrade fee to keep it. It's worth it for those that work with a lot of code or text.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PopClip for Mac 1.4.9.
