Clipy offers three essential features for a clipboard manager that I'm using everyday: keep history records of clipboard, quick choose and paste from a pop-up menu, and convert clipboard content into plain text with single modifier key. Of course there are lots of clipboard manager applications available on MAS that can do this and even more, but Clipy better fits my needs. First, it's *NOT* an MAS application, which mean that it needs not to obey Apple's sandboxing policy. It can interact to system events without the requirement of a separate "helper" utility, thus mitigate the operation overhead. Second, the resource requirement of this application is extremely low. After one day heavy usage and it only allocated 7MB of memory. Meanwhile, the trusty Pastebot would occupy 50MB+ of memory. Third, it can operate in invisible mode, hiding both Dock and Menu bar icon. And last, but not least, it's free.

This has proven over the years to be my best option, free or not. Having favorite folders is an option I can't live without. Thank you :)

macos Catalina says that the Developer cannot be verified and demands the App to be deleted or it is not usable. It is not Clipy's fault. I am Using this little helping App since the beginning. Apple new policy is forcing to buy similar Apps in the AppStore which I will not do. However it would be great when the Developer of Clipy gets a verification. This productive Tool may not be missed on any new or old installation.

This app establishes a connection to "feeds.feedburner.com" while in use: why?

This is the best clipboard manager I have used since the days of System 9.x I works fast, with all the important features but without superfluous bells and whistles. I do recommend it as a must for any user that has to copy and paste many things over and over or for those that want to keep a history of the clipboard. This latest update is strange, because there are two GitHub pages, one with the official 1.2.1 version and the other with an unsigned and not notarized 1.2.8 version. I think the developer should clarify this because it could be seen as a hijacking of the project and a security risk.

Still cannot delete just 1 or more clips at a time. I don't want to delete the entire history just a couple of no longer useful clips. Seems like this should be a simple fix. ClipMenu had this feature.

I love this app and prefer it over many other, more complex and "powerful" clipboard managers. for simple tasks, such as storing large numbers of clips and having a "permanent" clip collection this is perfect. Note to the site admin: this is version 1.2.6, NOT 1.2.8 (in the get info window)

Note, this excellent app seems to be abandonware, a fork seems to be maintained at https://github.com/ian4hu/Clipy/releases

Thank you for acknowledging ClipMenu for the base of this lovely app, Open Source WORKS! I will be upgrading from ClipMenu and have a many Snippets, if I install Clipy will it be able to read and use them or should I back them up and add them one-by-one?

I can't see the Icons of the clips. Icon in in menu entries is on. Therefore I still use the old ClipMenu. Else... simply the best.

Really need the ability to delete individual clips and not just the entire history to be really useful.

It seems the best clipping extension I've met, at least better than the commercial one I've used until now.

Great app to replace ClipMenu. Best clipboard app out there. Does anyone know how to delete an individual clip and not the entire History? Used to be Command Delete but that doesn't work.

O.M.G! This is AWESOME!!! I especially love the paste and delete item since I don’t like my clipboard being FULL of unneeded tiny things… Of course, I LOVE the easy access and easy use. I do have a question - is there a way to export the Clips (that are not in your My Snippets folder)? I’d like to go to Snippets Editor and be able to export everything. I did find the Clipy system folder, but, while opening them does give you access to the text, there’s a lot of stuff like:: bplist00’56X$versionX$objectsY$archiverT$top܆™%&*.1U$nullÿ Beta request - ability to move My Snippets Clipy folder to the top? Beta - ability to hold down a key before selecting the clip, to delete clip right from the menubar dropdown. I guess I should just clear history occassionally. Hmm. I sound like a neat freak. I’m the opposite but trying to control anything more manageable, ha. Low priority. Anyway, THANKS to the developers!! Such a lovely app!!

Really simple and unobtrusive clipboard utility. There are others with beautiful interfaces but when you use them all day they can be tiresome. This one goes right to the point and opens the paste window right where your cursor is. You can use it with the keyboard via its shortcuts and leading numbers in each item, so you don't have to loose time with the mouse. And the icing in the cake… it's free.

Finally ClipMenu is back and running in newer OS. Clipy is like its predecessor: a light, handy, text menu-based clipboard manager with some nice configuration options. No other clipboard manager matches this simplicity and non-obstructive approach.

"Clipy is a Clipboard extension app for macOS." That's about the worst description for an app I've ever seen. What does it do?
