(2) has a very characteristic screen, and I think that people who are addicted to it will be addicted to it, but the iPhone is easy to see with vertical scrolling on the history list screen, but the negative point is that horizontal scrolling is slightly annoying on Mac. I thought.

Also, although ① is not compatible with iCloud, I didn’t feel any particular disadvantage because I could bring the copy information of iPhone / iPad via the “Universal Clipboard”.

The feature of this app is that the history list is displayed in the menu bar as shown in the figure.

CloudClip Manager

If you select any history, it will be copied to the clipboard, so you can paste it by pasting it with the application immediately after that.

By the way, regarding the meaning of the icon on the left side of the history list, the circle mark is the data acquired locally, and the three bars are the data acquired via iCloud.

CloudClip Manager

The maximum number of history can be set in “Options” -> “Clip Limit”.

Conclusion

I think that the clipboard history extension app will show the taste of the user, so please try the three types of apps introduced on this page.

As an aside, since the clipboard history can be used as a standard function in Windows 10 from 2018, I think that Mac may be installed as standard soon.
