Does far more than most in a clean interface - I use it DAILY and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a solid clipboard manager - it is an ESSENTIAL app for professionals and regular users alike...

Unclutter is brilliant, I have no idea why it took me this long to try it. Notes saves opening my favourite text editor again and again, it’s lightweight and it’s just there, ready to go. I’m using Alfred’s clipboard alongside Unclutter’s clipboard with no problems so far. Unclutter makes it easy to edit clippings. Files has replaced Yoink.

Good app but it needs an iOS version to make it truly complete.

I find it interesting that the developer feels the need to tell everyone how to best use his app. I understand that he would have his preference, but not everyone uses a computer in the same way. If the default way is not convenient for some people, it's not the best way. Kudos that there are other ways to use this.
