Overview

iSnip is a new freeware application that allows users to manage and edit a collection of text clippings that can be easily accessed from a system wide menu.

iSnip includes the ability to create a snippet from the clipboard contents using a global hotkey, inserting or copying of the selected snippet, instant filtering of your snippet collection, full drag and drop organization, full rule-based organization (with wildcard support), integrated software updating, import and export of the users snippet database, and more. There is also a frequently updated blog here..

iSnip 1.4 is unstable under Leopard, as stated before - unless you choose "Disable clipboard history" in the Preferences. After doing so it's a reliable and very useful companion.

I have been using isnip for years. I never had problems with 10.5 but a recent upgrade to 10.6 resulted in the program frequently hanging or quitting altogether. I had actually looked at other programs but decided to fiddle with isnip first as I have a large library of snippets that I didn't want to lose or recreate. I discovered that if I set the preferences to limit the history to 20 items it has worked perfectly without hanging or quitting.

I was a big fan, too. Try this: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/29988/clipmenu I think you'll find it reasonably comparable.

iSnip was a great application, but under 10.6 it caused hanging, so it had to be disabled. Do not use iSnip with Snow Leopard.

Thanks for the suggestion. Rich. iSnip became unusable for me with 10.5.7 and ClipMenu seems to be a good replacement.

Ditto the above comment. Was using iSnip for years but it's development is dead. And it's PPC, so it's slow even on my Mac Pro. ClipMenu offers the same features, it's not a PPC app (of course), plus it shows your long snippets via "tool tip" pop-up...really nice. Donated $5 to the developer -- I know I'll be using this application just about everyday.

Doesn't appear to be Leopard compatible. Won't launch.

This app is awesome. I'm a web developer and can't tell you how useful this is to me. Sometimes it's the simplest things... If I could request one feature, it would be syntax colouring for different coding languages. But really, that's just an aesthetic consideration. Keep up the good work.

Hi iSnip users, iSnip 2 is currently in the early stages of development. I've decided to rewrite the entire thing to take more advantage of some of the tools provided in the OS (CoreData being one of them), so it's "back to the drawing board." But yes, iSnip 2 is forthcoming (when, I don't know... I do have school and a job to worry about first). Thanks, Dave DeLong

I recently upgraded to Mac OS Leopard, and now the iSnip icon disappears from the menu bar for no apparent reason.

After updating to Mac Os X 10.4.9 iSnip crashes when starting up. Here is part of the console log: 2007-03-14 10:26:15.042 iSnip[429] CFLog (0): CFPropertyListCreateFromXMLData(): plist parse failed; the data is not proper UTF-8.
