What!? You’re not using Clippy?

This post is part of a technology series called “What?! You’re not using…?” where I’m sharing ten technology sites/apps that I find to be very helpful – and you might too!

I’m pretty sure I heard about Clippy from Adam Copeland, but I can’t find a post about it on his blog, so I’m not sure anymore (even if he isn’t the one who mentioned it, he’s still a great guy and you should check out his blog, A Wee Blether).

Clippy is awesome. You know when you’re working, you copy and paste one thing, then copy another thing, but then wish you could paste the first thing you copied one more time…? So you have to go back and find where it was, copy it again, and then paste it. Clippy is magic – it keeps a record of your recently copied text, and so if you need to find one from a few copies ago, you just select it from the Menu Bar and you’re good to go.

I initially wasn’t sure about paying for it on the Mac App Store, but it’s been so worth it. Such a handy little app to have, I’m glad to have found out about it. It’s only $0.99 on the Mac App Store, so you should totally check out Clippy. Not much more to say about it than that – it’s incredibly handy.

What!? You’re not using Evernote?

Evernote is an awesome app and incredibly powerful, but I’m still figuring out how best it fits into my workflow. If you want some detailed explanations for how one person is using Evernote, check out Michael Hyatt’s blog posts How To Organize Evernote for Maximum Efficiency and A Better Filing System for Public Speakers (and Writers). Michael truly is the Evernote master right now, and shares often about his tips & tricks. He just wrote a great post about “How to Get Your Stuff into Evernote.

Evernote is basically the place where you can keep everything that you want to remember, go back and read more about, keep track of, etc. It’s a system based on filing documents, audio files, photos, etc., by using tags, and so everything is searchable and findable extremely quickly.
