ClipBuddy Free Until October 31st-Powerful Clipboard Manager [Deals]

One clipboard rots. That’s all there is to it. You copy one thing, then another, and…you always need the first thing you copied again. Myself, I’ve been using the clipboard manager tool in Alfred (with the PowerPack add-on), but it’s pretty basic. So I’ve picked up ClipBuddy today because it’s free right now—Free Clipboard Manager For Macs: Automatically Organize All of Your Copied Text With an Intuitive Copy & Paste Utility.

I haven’t played much with how the app works yet, but it looks like it has everything you need to store and manage stuff you copy from apps. Unlike Alfred, when I hit the hotkey, I’m not presented with a pick list of what I’d like to paste, but rather you keep the window open (off to the side) or use the menu to choose which clip to paste at a given time.

Slightly different workflow, but I think I can get used to it. There are some cool features like being able to group pieces of text together to paste in sequence and other power tools. From my first look, ClipBuddy is kinda like a clipboard manager with a few of the features of TextExpander built in.

My advice: if you haven’t started using a clipboard manager…now is the time. You’ll be amazed at how many times a day you use it (a lot), if you are using a basic or outdated clipboard manager, now’s the time to upgrade.

That’s what I just did.

    Holy cow guys, how many hoops do we need to jump through? Sign up for an account here. Then follow them on twitter. Then tweet about them. Then go to their website and give them your email address. Then donate a pint of blood. Then tweet a link proving you did that. Then add the pint of blood on facebook and tweet about that. Then sign the pint of blood up for an account on this site and on gmail so you can give the pint of blood’s email address to the other website. Then finally, download the app and wait for them to email you a code only to find out the app sucks. If you’re giving something away, just give it away. If you’re going to add a million hoops to jump through first, that’s fine too, but explain what they are before somebody starts trying to download the app.

    Here’s a better idea folks: just go to the clipbuddy website and skip most of the extra steps.
