What’s one of the first things we learned to do on our Macs? Cut, copy, paste from the keyboard. That simple action is probably built-in to our genes already so future generations will already know how to do it.
Remember cut, copy, paste on the iPhone? It took Apple a year to bring a system-wide cut, copy, and paste function to the iPhone, but when it arrived, everyone already knew how to use it because it was so simple, elegant, and self explanatory.
That same kind of cut, copy, and paste, including the pop up menu, is available on your Mac with PopClip.
Simply select some text within a document using the Mac’s mouse pointer and PopClip appears above it. See how it looks like using the iPhone or iPad’s cut, copy, paste function on your Mac?
PopClip is completely self explanatory and actually fun to use. And, you get extra options beyond mere cut, copy, and paste.
You can search for text online, or select a single word and get a pop up definition just by using the pop up tools. If a word is misspelled, PopClip offers a correction.
PopClip is well done, inexpensive, and brings a taste of iPhone and iPad to your Mac.
