the clipboard history for everybody

CuteClip 3 is the perfect comanion for Mac OS X's native clipboard. It sits in the background and continuously records changes to the clipboard in order to provide access to them when the user needs it.

CuteClips focuses on what's most important: simplicity. The simple but highly efficient user interface allows the user to quickly find the clip that he/she is looking for. This is achieved providing a textual list of all clips for a perfect overview in addition to a huge preview for a detailed view of a clip.

To activate CuteClips 3 the user can either use the the menu item or the HotKey, which defaults to Command/Shift-V, the shortcut for pasting but with a pressed shift key. CuteClips can either be controlled by mouse, but also via keyboard, which makes it useful also for seasoned users who prefer speed and efficient usability.

Feature Highlights:
* Easy to use interface
* Big preview for each clip
* Fully accessible via keyboard or mouse
* Automatically records any changes to the clipboard in background
* Keep track of 12 - 50 clips
* Richtext clips can be pasted as plaintext with ease (press cmd when selecting the clip)
* Paste several clips in a row by selecting them with space
* Make clips sticky to prevent them from being deleted automatically
* Assign shortcuts to clips for faster access
* Paste only parts of clips, e.g. only the name of a copied file

Great little clipboard manager. Have been using it for over a year, and plan to continue. Simple, reliable, and effective...

CuteClips is a clipboard manager - it can keep multiple entries for later use. That is, you don't have to copy a single piece of text to the (standard) clipboard, immediately paste it, and start over again with the next piece of text.
Instead, just copy multiple pieces to CuteClip's own clipboard and paste them later, when you need them.

Sounds simple, but this is incredibly handy when working with texts, e.g. at the terminal: just store directory paths or commands with CuteClips and have them available again at once without having to re-enter them. Just let CuteClip pop up with a key shortcut, chose the piece of text you need, and it will be inserted as soon as you press "Enter".

I've tried other products on Mac OS but CuteClips seems to be the only one which can keep up with KDE's "Klipper".

CuteClips is a multiple clipboard manager. It has a simple, easy to use interface that allows quick access to stored clippings. Pasting as plain text is an option, so is pasting of multiple clippings with ease.

That's a much better description. But version 3 is still in beta with new features popping up. So far I'm impressed with it. I've tried other similar apps, including the most popular iClip and I really do prefer the to-the-point-with-ease design of CuteClips.

@ jailerjoe:
What CuteClips does is very simple: it gives you multiple clipboards.
It keeps a memory of the last items you have copied and allows you to paste any one of them with a simple click of your mouse.

Okay, so what is this app supposed to do? Looks like the admin forgot to actually tell us what CuteClips does.
