Every once in a while, you find a free app that makes its way into day-to-day use. I think you’ll find one of today’s picks might be just such a pick.
This free app remembers your clipboard contents. With a configurable keystroke you can toggle through your recent clipped text and choose what you want to insert.
JumpCut is configurable, and accessible through a menu item. JumpCut does not record copied images. For that, check out PTHPasteboard – which comes in both free and shareware flavors.
This polished application manages your media clips and notes. It cleverly imports media from iLife apps and interacts with Mail and Addressbook. Smart folders take over organization and multiple export options make your data portable.
Its a pretty slick app, and version 2.5 will be the last free release. Did I mention iPod notes integration and the ability to record video clips right in the application.
File indexing has been part of the Mac OS for ages. SpotInside allows you to search inside text-based files (including Word, PDF and Pages) and provides an improved, straightforward interface for searching file contents.
The Source pane allows you to specify where to search. Supported destinations include smart folders and can be saved. SpotInside even saves a search history.
