Popclip enables several actions just by highlighting text including copy, paste and search

PopClip by Pilot Moon software is probably one of the handiest little tools you can get on your Mac

How it works:

Essentially the application presents you with a whole lot of pop up options when you select a portion of text with your mouse.

There are upto 50 options available and include copy, paste, search the web to name a few.

It even corrects misspelled words.  

PopClip provides the following key benefits:

  • Reduces keystrokes by offering you various options once you’ve selected a portion of text. Copying and pasting becomes a whole lot easier and quicker.
  • Presents the option to do an online search highlight the text. Another great benefit which I use all the time. Just highlight a word and presto … you have this little magnifying glass which pops up giving you the option to search for it on the web.
  • More than 50 extensions are available including Paste, Translate, Send to Evernote. The range of options is pretty staggering. You can even have an extension to search for highlighted text on youtube!

PopClip is a joy to use and has paid for itself many times over as far as I’m concerned. I have no hesitation in recommending this little beauty! Enjoy!
