JumpCut made better - tl;dr: This app works well, and has made some improvements on JumpCut. Definitely worth it. Yes, it's a fork of JumpCut. They openly tell you that in the description. Stop complaining about that. In looking at the SCM history, the submitter has done a bit of work on top of the old JumpCut source code, including support for keeping your clipboard across multiple machines (if you so choose, via DropBox). JumpCut's been abandoned since 2009, so my thanks go to the developer for keeping this alive.

This is nothing but a rip of opensource Jumpcut - This is a poor copy of the free software called Jumpcut. Just search for Jumpcut the net and you can find it. They didn't even bother to remove the word "Jumpcut" from the preference screen! And they are rude enough in the description of this app to make it sound like you're dumb if you ask about features that they didn't even create themselves in the first place. "Developed by developers for developers." I agree with that... just that they're not the developers!!!

Review by Bubbalumpkis

Bugs in this version, but one of the best utilities I’ve used - The original Jumpcut has worked on every system I’ve tried it on and is one of the most useful apps I’ve ever installed, but hasn’t been updated in a long time and I’ve had to cross my fingers that it would work after every OS upgrade... I’m glad Flycut has taken up the reins to keep this utility alive and well, but Flycut has a bug that does not allow it to remember your settings after a restart - unless you tell it to save after each clip… It won’t save your preferences whenever they’re changed like most other apps and it took me a while to figure out how to get it to save its preferences. There’re a couple of reports of this problem on the developers GitHub, but it’s still a problem. Still, bugs aside it’s one of my most used/first installed utilities and it’s approach to clipboard management fits my style better than all other clipboard buffers/managers that I’ve tried.

No El Capitan Support - App will not install on El Capitan. Try to install through App Store and all you get is “Use purchases page to try again"

Review by KellyTheDude

The Definitive Solution to the Modern Pasteboard - The only think I can say about this app is as a programmer and and a power user, this app has changed my life. That sounds like an overstatement; maybe it is. It also could be a knee jerk reaction to an obvious modern addition to the pervasive 30 year old concept of the Macintosh pasteboard. Whichever it is, the utility of this app is incredible. I can't emphasis how much Flycut has streamlined my workflow, and as a long time Mac user, Flycut's user experience has always felt right at home. Every time I show this app to a coworker, fellow developer, OS X power user, or anyone who know just wants to save time, I see a look of joy. Anyone who has invoked Command + C will appreciate this app!

Review by mackmoe210

Much better than most - I love it now that I found that holding shift turns on the clipboard history. Funny… how a little reading goeas a long way! Good job guys keep up the good work. If I may make 1 request for a future release…. Is there a way to keep all the history in a window (similar to a python based clipboard manager for linux called gpasteitin) on the desktop? I know it sounds crazy but I have a lot of realestate on my monitors and that feature is a big help for a lazy IT guy like myself. Thanks! :-)
