Description:

How many times have you copied something to the clipboard only to have it lost when you copied something else accidentally (or intentionally) a second time? iCopy is a simple yet an elegant utility that keeps a list of recently copied items to the clipboard making it easier to paste any or all of these when you need them again.

What you copy is what you get; iCopy can deal with and understand multiple clipping types and will allow you to paste the same clip or file between multiple documents, even in between system restarts. Copying HTML text, PDF, an RTF document, an email, image or anything else will appear exactly the same with all formatting intact when pasted.

- Resides in your system status-bar as an unobtrusive icon. Can be invoked with a configurable globally assigned hotkey.

- iCopy understands all popular formats and file types and will allow you to paste text/images/files/emails etc exactly as these were copied

- One-Click-Paste: *A single click on a clip from the menu list will paste it to the currently active window

- Bookmarked Clips: Bookmark frequently used clips with a single right-click. Bookmarked clips appear highlighted and survive reboots/relaunches or the 'clear history' option.

- Spotlight style 'grouped list' can be displayed by using an assigned hotkey or right-clicking on the menu icon.

- Mouse-drags Capturing: Captures any file, text, image etc you drag system wide and makes it available in clippings list

- Quick Look Previews: Files that you copy or drag & drop around the system get saved and appear with a small icon preview in the list. Hovering mouse over can optionally display Quick Look previews for recap.

- Editing Clips: Delete all or individual clips from the clippings history

- Search Clips: Search through your complete clippings history to find a particular piece of text you once copied

- Tooltips: Hover mouse over saved clips to see tooltips with complete clippings and the date when it was last copied.

- Several customizable options. iCopy works with a simple install without prerequisites or dependencies on other software.


----------------------------------
* One-Click-Paste is an optional setting. Without this option ON you have the liberty to select a clip and manually paste it into any application. Switching it ON requires 'Access for Assistive Devices' from under System Preferences > Universal Access to be turned ON.

Very nice clipboard manager - I have tried many clipboard managers and I quickly stop using each since each just didn't fit the way I work. iCopy is unobtrusive, is fast, shows previews, and supports numerous file formats. I think this one is going stay installed and running.

Don't Buy: Terrible with Mavericks - Lots of problems with Mavericks. All the alternatives, from Flycut to Popcopy, do it better. Can't even handle clipped images correctly! Do not buy.

Review by Definite Dan

Works good but with issues - Be prepared to baby sit this app. It works as they say but I did not use for a while and the cache of recorded copies got so large that my computer became highly unstable. Another thing iCopy does is…..it record every time you move a file and copies it for pasting later. This function can be turned off and is advised if you are like me and did not baby sit the app. I may have had my settings too high (I had it set on saving the last 100 copies…..maybe to many. I was ready to throw my computer out a window till I realized that icopy was causing the problems. When I quit the app all my problems went away and came back immediatly after restarting. Then I cleared the cache and everything was running good again. Symptomes were that my mac became highly unresponsive and could not even shut it down at times and had to pull plug for a force shut down.

missing my favorite clipboard shortcut - I have given a similar request of another clipboard management tool. Overall this is my favorite in the field except for one little thing. The CMD+(hold down)V is my absolute favorite, most convienient shortcut for accessing a clipboard manager. Copy Past Pro uses this but it lacks some of the cool features that iCopy has. I hope that soon, Guided Ways will add this excellent short cut. Thanks!

Super - Remarkable life saver. I frequently need to copy and paste 'template' email replies at work and this works better than some other apps I tried. Highly recommended.

Barebones - It's ok if you need an extremely simple clipboard manager, but it isn't terribly much more than that. Definitely needs more features, including the ability to exclude programs (I don't want this remembering all of my 1Password passwords accessed, thank you).
