Reliable time-saving utility - I’ve been using Copied for some 1.5 years now (bascially, since development of aText stopped), and it has proven itself as a reliable must-have utility in my everyday workflow: I work with content (editing and writing) across multiple devices (MBP, iMac, iPad, and iPhone): Copied allows me to collect and categorize links, images, and text snippets on the go or at my desk and making them available to me no matter what screen I happen to be at to finalize my draft. Copied also comes with a plethora of custamization optjons (including setting the amount of items it allows you to collect). Cloud sync has been reliable, and in terms of ease-of-use no other Clipboard manager comes close (and I’ve tried quite a few, from aText to Pasteboard — even if aText where still under development, I’d prefer Copied for the ease of use, performance and because it comes with an iOS companion app.

Review by TheHorizontalKey

Defeats the Purpose - I use this app to screenshot multiple screen clippings into whatever app I am working in. I will screenshot like five different things, pull up my separate app and get ready to paste. When I drag into the app, cmd-v, or right click to paste each individual screenshot, it always jacks up at least 1/5 of the clippings and pastes the wrong image. When I look at the Copied List, it shows the correct image, even in preview. But I I try to paste it, it will paste a different one of the 5. I’ve tried compatibility mode, and pasting into multiple applications that aren’t Java based. Same problem. It’s exteremly frustrating to try to use this app. I have gone back to just copying and pasting each screenshot one by one because it is less time consuming then using this waste of an app.

Review by 😃😎😃😎

It's Great … For now - I love how the app compliments the design of the current MacOS. Keep it up. I also like the idea of creating my own “rules” that define how the text is formatted when copied, however I can’t find a tutorial on making my own script… So far I have yet to encouter any real issues. Keep it that way. However, a lot of apps like these have nice starts but for whatever reason the developer abandons it, please don’t make me buy an alternative next month! As of now I highly recommend this app to every Mac user I know and meet, it is worth the money… for now.

Stopped using it due to bugs and issues - There are many occasions where it just refuses to copy the item I have selected in copied. Switched to CopyLess which works better and reliably.

Review by GordonAD

Security Risk! - Only one laptop on my network had this installed, however, other user’s copies were being added to my clipboard. I did NOT enable cloud support and could NOT find any option for disabling external access. After I removed the program, it still was collecting copies from other’s laptops.
