Corkboard lets you manage your data and works-in-progress in a new and intuitive way. It works alongside your clipboard - the place things go when you copy or paste them -to hold more data and show you exactly what's going on.

You can drag-and-drop data to Corkboard, where it will be kept for safekeeping between saves, quits, reboots, and crashes. When you need to use the data again, just drag it back out to the program that needs it. It's fast and easy. And unlike other applications, it doesn't limit you to a list of paragraphs or pictures: Corkboard leaves you free to arrange any data of any type in any way.

You can also more...

What's New

Version 2.1:
  • A splash screen is now presented on first launch and (if the user chooses) subsequent launches with basic instructions on how to use Corkboard.
  • Fixed an issue where Corkboard would not ignore "transient" updates from applications like TextExpander.
  • Fixed an issue where names in vCards might not display properly if they had default ordering.

Too bad. I liked Corkboard.

I like it. However, it uses more memory than OverFlow, DropBox, Blast Utility,TextExpander and iClip respectively. Actually, it uses twice the memory of iClip and TextExpander.

Additionally, I wish the Corkboard desktop app could recognize my iOS devices, so I could just send clips to Corkboard via the iOS app without having to be on my Mac to accept them.

Nice, I can go back to what I have copied in the past instead of it just remembering only the last thing I copied. I only wish that it would link rather then embed files when pasted inside of InDesign. If it could do that then it would be super useful.

I had unfairly written a few, hasty negative reviews yesterday, for which I apologize. I had not given the company a chance to respond to problems I told them about. They were quickly responsive, and they are looking for solutions. I asked MU to please remove those reviews, which they did. As many have suggested, this program is still in need of development, but many programs are. And at the least, the developers were available to me. I think that's important to any product and in any product review. I shall be more thoughtful and courteous in the future.

A very useful app. It's really easy to use. Like, I just have to double click on the item and it's copied automatically. There's room for improvement for the overall design though.

I can't even get the program to launch. I double click and it gives me the opening animation but the program doesn't open. I am on a PowerMac G5 using 10.5.8

Tech support help me figure this out. When on a G5 you have to run in 32-bit mode. You get to 32-bit mode by clicking the application icon and going to the get info window.

Might be good program. Can't tell. Why is there no documentation or a help file?

Great lil' app.

Quick Q: Any way to change the keyboard shortcut used to display Corkboard? F6 is too far for me to travel each time. (I tried System Prefs -> Keyboard, but can't get it to work).

Thanks y'all.

You can change the shortcut in Corkboard's General Preferences.

i am testing this out.
i like the concept but the software doesn't work right on my machine.
i get this error message that i don't understand.
there is no help file.
when i check functions out to see if these work, eg history, i get crap about evaluation mode, so i can't say what works and what doesn't.
i will say it's cheap enough to play with. and i like the idea of corkboard technology in something cheaper than the excellent 'tinderbox.'
this 'corkboard' isn't ready for primetime.
and there's no direct link to the software foundry from macupdate which leaves me thinking that i won't get any satisfaction from the designers.
a real pity. if these guys let me test the actual software and it worked, you'd be reading a different review. no stars.
