Review by sstrenn

Doesn't appear to work with Xcode4... - Copied items in Xcode 4 do not appear in copypaster. VERY BAD. This is the primary reason that I purchased copypaster.

the best - This app is simply the best clipboard manager. It’s the right combination of unobtrusive but also easily available. Keyboard shortcuts mean that you can always paste a particular item just by muscle memory. Favorites mean that during a project a particular snippet of common code or text will be super quick to paste with a keystroke. I’ve used it for a good while now, and nothing else has come close. Other apps along these lines may also be good, but you can't go wrong here.

Review by ARobi

Couldn’t imagine not having it - I’ve been using this for years and it has been great. I used to have another one that was poorly maintained on the AppStore before I found this one. I think it is even better than the clipboard managers for Gnome, KDE and XFCE on Linux. Really well done and worth purchasing.
