This edition of Web Finds features a selection of copy and paste clipboard managers. My favorite is Copied which I’ve written about here.

Paste
Paste is a smart cloud clipboard history and snippets manager for Mac. It keeps everything you’ve ever copied and lets you use your clipboard history whenever you need it from all your Macs. Paste recognizes and stores text, images, links, files and any other type of content and generates informative previews for easy browsing.

Copy’em Paste
Copy’em Paste for Mac is a simple-yet-powerful clipboard tool for dramatically speeding up your daily copy-and-paste workflow. It automatically keeps your copied text, images, links, screenshots, etc., and lets you recall/paste them anytime, right at your fingertips. Use it to copy items consecutively and then paste them (without the usual, back-and-forward copy/paste round trips), store favorite clippings permanently, take screenshots without clogging up your desktop, collect data for research, expedite pasting of clippings, transform pasted text, organize clippings into lists, and so on.

CloudClip
CloudClip syncs your clipboard between your Mac and your iOS devices. It’s the easiest way to transfer phone numbers, websites, addresses, and more.

Web Finds for July 7, 2017

Web Finds are from my web surfing travels. You’ll find some unique, informative, and some of the coolest websites and apps that you may have never known existed. Enjoy!

CheatSheet
CheatSheet is a free Mac app that displays an app’s keyboard shortcuts in an opaque pop-up in the vein of a Quick Look preview. Holding down the command key for a couple seconds brings up the entire list of shortcuts for the active application. While holding down the command key, you can click on commands with your mouse cursor to activate that command. If you want to learn all of the useful keyboard shortcuts to get the most out of your Applications, CheatSheet is what you’ve been looking for. It runs in the background without taking up menubar or dock space on your Mac.

AppCleaner
AppCleaner is a small Mac application which allows you to thoroughly uninstall unwanted apps. Installing an application distributes many files throughout your System using space of your Hard Drive unnecessarily. AppCleaner finds all these small files and safely deletes them.

Screens 4
Screens is a powerful VNC client app that lets you control any computer from anywhere as if you were sitting in front of it! Screens 4.0 for macOS adds curtain mode, drag-and-drop file transfers, touch bar support, and more.

Screenfloats
Use ScreenFloat for Mac to create floating screenshots that are always visible, no matter which application you’re in. This way, you don’t have to move or resize windows around to keep information visible on your screen. You can send shots created with ScreenFloat to any application that handles image files. I love this app.

Yoink
Yoink for Mac simplifies and improves drag and drop between windows, apps, spaces and fullscreen apps. When you start dragging files in Finder or content from an application, Yoink fades in a tiny window at the edge of your screen so you can drag to it. This frees up your mouse so you can comfortably navigate to the destination of the files and resume the drag from Yoink’s window more comfortably.
