Schreiben is a German software application and the very first app I ever wrote:
I recently made an updated version of it in a reminiscent mood. Of course, this version has nothing to do anymore with the crappy piece of shit I wrote over a decade ago :–)
I finally got around to update the old Clippings.app and to free it from the Mac App Store where Apple did not allow me to update it because of the Sandbox restrictions.
Clippings 2.0 now stores – besides the clipping itself – the application in question and a time stamp, which makes it much easier to find clippings days and weeks later and this also allows for a setting to suppress storing passwords.
And since there is no money to make from such small – but very useful – tools anymore, it’s also gone free. Never say I don’t have a soft spot for freeloaders though :–)
Clippings is a tiny app that keeps all your text clippings in one place so, no matter whether you’re creating a new, totally awesome website or putting the finishing touches to your exam or compiling a terrific article that combines all sorts of findings/sources and interviews.
What steals most of your time while doing so and that is no fun at all is the eternal search for recently used passages from texts, code snippets, most recently used phrases, whole pages or a quotation you just copied a few days ago.
MOAppsClippings is designed for ease-of-use and most important of all: speed! It won’t store yesterdays breakfast toast - but the much more useful remaining 99 percent.
Words, Phrases, Numbers, Paragraphs and Texts…
It won’t slow down, hang or crash. Even with thousands of stored clippings. You can paste a recently used clipping into an active window, view or field with two simple steps and in less than a second. If you like you can also re-use your clippings by drag-and-drop - which makes much sense if you need to insert multiple clippings.
Clippings will automatically auto-save its changes. You might forget to pay your utility bill, but your clippings are save!
I was one again annoyed. This time by the Spotify.app for OS X. It constantly hogs the CPU, needs to run - for whatever reasons - multiple instances of the same processes; processes that crash all the time.
Yes, I tried switching to the web app using Safari. But I’m used to constantly closing and quitting Safari. I’m definitely not the 57-tabs-at-once kinda guy.
I’m that guy that opens Xcode instead and ends up with a simple Menubar.app that uses much less resources and doesn’t show up in the dock…
