PopClip: iOS-Style ‘Copy & Paste’ Brought Back To The Mac – [VIDEO]


With the launch of Mac OS X Lion imminent, the next major iteration of Apple’s desktop operating system designed to bring everything you love about iOS “Back to the Mac,” shouldn’t copy and paste also be one of the features which receives a revamp?

While Mac OS X Lion features pretty much the same implementation of ‘Copy & Paste’ as every previous version of Mac OS X, barring the addition of PDF-embedded images now being copied over during selection, PopClip by PilotMoon aims to make the process even simpler by bringing the iOS implementation of this well known feature back to the Mac.

Designed to take the effort out of an action most of us use on a day to day basis, PopClip is a simple, Mac OS X toolbar-accessible app that adds size-adjustable black pop-over ‘Cut’, ‘Copy’ and ‘Paste’ actions to text when selected.

Check out the video below to see PopClip in-action, then head over to the Mac App Store and grab your copy for $3.99. PopClip works on any Mac with OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later.
