Review by WTF_Actual

HOLY MOLY - I’ve had unclutter for a while now and I just now realized how much I use it. Literally every single day i used my Mac. I either drag my desktop files into the universal folder or make new documents in the notepad. It is also VERY useful to see my clipboard history — which is saves everything copied, pictures, links, everything. I’m here writing this because I realized that I’ve been using it so much that I almost forgot it isn’t a built in app and thought that, of all the other apps and stuff that I HAVE reviewed, this one was most deserving of one. Here’s to Unclutter, the app that works so well you forget it’s running and just blend it into your workflow.

Review by Smhyep

Looks Good… Try taking a file back out... - I always have desktop clutter due to my creative job. Thought unclutter was a great solution. It was for about a week, until I needed to access the documents again. You can not take them back out. Dragging out doesn't work well at all. I have literally had to search and find the folder that they store the contents in to access my files. Not worth it...
