The clipboard on macOS works much like it does on Windows, Linux or mobile devices: a copied content is kept ready for later use and is overwritten as soon as something else is copied. But what if you want to cache and use multiple contents in the clipboard? What if you need a clipboard manager to store and use later text, images, links, files, color codes and more? Here comes the Mac app Maccy in the game. Maccy has all the necessary features, is open source and can be downloaded from the Mac App Store or GitHub.
Maccy App – Manage clipboard smartly in macOS
The Maccy App by Igor Rodionov is made for Mac operating systems from macOS 10.14 Mojave. From macOS 11 Big Sur there are a few improvements in the user interface. Apart from that, you should concentrate on the functions. Because Maccy offers an overview of the content recently copied to the clipboard and offers a key combination for each. In addition, you can z. B. Free texts from their formatting, pin important content and empty the entire clipboard. All content can be selected quickly via a menu bar icon. Once you've internalized the shortcuts, it's even faster.
The Maccy App features highlighted in the Mac App Store (link above) are:
- Light and fast: Clipboard contents are displayed quickly and without unnecessary distractions or additional functions.
- Keyboard Usage: Those who don't want to move their hands away from the keyboard can use keyboard shortcuts to select content, paste it (with or without formatting), etc.
- Secure and private: Maccy does not store or forward any data. In addition, content from password manager apps is not placed on the clipboard.
- Native optics: The app fits minimalistically into the macOS interface so that the workflow is not disturbed by distractions.
- Nothing superfluous: The Maccy app for the Apple Mac offers a view and access to the copy history and nothing else; there are no unnecessary features or extensions.
- Open Source Code: The app is open source under the MIT license. You can see the complete code on GitHub (link above). A purchase from the App Store supports the developer.
