Meet Collective, clipboard history for your Mac, done right. Nearly anything you can copy, Collective will remember. Text, images, PDFs, movies, URLs, appointments, files: Collective keeps track of whatever you copy. With a simple key combination (?-Shift-V) Collective appears, allowing you to add nearly anything you previously copied back to the clipboard to be pasted, exactly as you copied it.

Powerful. Precise. Attractive. Thoughtful. Everything you expect from a Mac app.

What's New

Version 2.0.2:
  • Fixes an issue where Collective occasionally stops retrieving items from the clipboard
  • Adds options to not ignore passwords and/or temporary items


  • OS X 10.7 or later

This has become my #2 clipboard manager. It's not yet my #1 choice as it doesn't incorporate direct paste. Instead, it makes the selected clip active on the clipboard, which you must then paste with Cmd-V. The lack of direct paste is due to Apple's sandboxing requirements. I asked the dev about this, as some other Mac Store apps have direct paste, and he reported that Apple rejected his app three times until he removed direct paste, and that the other apps had it before sandboxing was required, and therefore were "grandfathered" in. Here's hoping that the dev decides to offer a non-MAS version with direct paste, which I would buy immediately.

I'm docking half a star from my rating because currently there's no ability to reorder or renumber favourites. If there was, I could assign a specific number to a favourite, for consistent pasting, and for a more organized display when filtering to show only favourites. When the dev adds this, it will be a 5-star app, and when a direct paste version is available it will be worthy of 6 stars!
