I am still using Iclips from last year's bundle.  I really like it even though it is abandonware.  I downloaded Clips cause, well, I paid for it, but I am thinking from all the comments here that I should just trash it and continue to use Iclips for the moment.  Advice anyone??

I had the same memory leak problem the first time I downloaded Clips. I deleted it like 30 minutes after downloading it.

However, another friend who also bought the bundle told me that she's got no problem at all from using Clips. So I gave it another try tonight. Downloaded it several hours ago and have been using it since then - I've clipped pictures (including high-resolution ones), text, codes... etc. NO PROBLEM AT ALL!

For all the functions it claims to deliver, it's worth it to give a second try. Though the memory problem I had during the first trial was pretty frustrating but now... it simply works!

Just try it for yourself and see.

Just be aware that it's constantly connected to Conceited Software's servers (ostensibly just checking the license so it theoretically isn't a big security/privacy risk) even when the app is quit - you have to remove ClipsHelper from login items and quit it from Activity Monitor to stop it.

Thanks but this still doesn't answer my question.  Iclips or Clips ??  Should I just keep using Iclip since so many people have had trouble with Clips?   I think Iclips is pretty cool and I never had any trouble with it but I hate to get rid of Clips since it is current and so far, updatable whereas Iclip is not either.

Meh, I kinda feel disappointed when developers have so little trust in their customers.
It's not like these kind of activation schemes are unbreakable so why bother with it? Just check the serial once and that's it.

I do too. smile

The double-standard many of the developers (those using activation) are exhibiting is the worst part I think. They require that I trust them with my personal information, like addresses and such after I have already paid for a license and yet, they still can't trust me that I'll hold up my end of the license agreement? hmm

I try to stay clear of activated software as much as possible so Clips is far gone, but Adobe... oh, well.

Despite my euphoria in the beginning, I deactivated Clips. Anyway, they should at least permit two computers have clips run. I got it on my desktop and when I had it installed on my laptop, it immediately asked me if I'd like to purchase another license or deactivate it since one license was running ....

I was using Clips but then it kicked my registration. I looked on the developer's site for some support but their forum board really sucks. I didn't even get a registration email from their forum so I can't post the issue. What a joke.

I love the idea, i love the app how it looks and work, but i can't use it at the moment.
The app using to much RAM. I have an Alu iMac of the first gen. I can only setup 4 GB of RAM and when an App like iClip using permanently around 400 MB of it or more and didn't free up the memory, it's not helpfully for me. iClip using more RAM as Photoshop.

I wrote a mail to the support, but i didn't get a feedback since one week. Not really great i found :-(

Clips routinely kicks in over 2GB of real memory usage, just taking in text (the default 15 items).

As much as I want to love this bit of software, it's a car-crash. I can't believe it's been released in this state. I've been forced to power-cycle my machine twice in the last two days due to clips, and my partner (also using it) suffers the same appalling memory use.

The developer hasn't responded to queries, and seems to have been busy making an IRC client for iPads in preference to fixing the stuff they've already released in an unstable and fundamentally flawed state.

Anyone asking, I'd suggest sticking with this 'iclips'. At least it won't force you to power cycle your machine, lose work, or sit staring at a frozen machine for hours at a time.

I just wrote Conceited Software a lengthy email asking for a progress update on Clips. Nearly 8 months since the last update: I think we deserve some concrete and honest answers as to their committment to fix the numerous bugs. I also added a warning about making the next update a 2.0 update, as I recall reading that being a problem with this company in the past.

So we'll see what they have to say. I hope they'll be honest in trying to address the issues (numerous as they are).

Update: It's been a few days and not even a peep from Conceited Software. Starting to really live up to their company name and reputation for being a less-than-stellar developer. Might go and buy Stuf on MacZOT and just forget about Clips altogether.

Leaving aside the registration woes, Clips is still a terrible application. Drag-and-drop doesn't work properly... you end up with multiple copies of the same image, even when dragging different items. Clips mostly doesn't show up in the menu bar for me - either the icon, or the application menu when it's launched - which is a real pain because that makes the preferences inaccessible.

I wonder whether MacHeist even used the application before adding it to the bundle. A serious turnoff from buying future MacHeist bundles.

Add to that several other problems (CoverScout, Tweetie, Monkey Island and Spam mails in the last bundle alone) and I tend to agree...
What really annoys me is the missing communication on their side.
No update from their communication with atebits, no further investigation on the spam issue, I would love to be updated on these matters before the new bundle comes out...

Get Dropbox through my referral link (you get 250MB more than usually): https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTY0NDU4MzQ5

It is best not to know what the Directorate are doing. It would be kind of like knowing the date that you are going to die. For example, if I knew that MH4 would start on 8/12/10 then I would never feel any anticipation opening the MH webpage until then.

As far as communications about the emails, Tweetie, etc, I doubt they are withholding any useful information from us. They may have a closer relationship with the developer than we have, but you have to remember that they are getting shafted just as badly as we are and would probably like the beta to be released weeks ago just like everyone else. I don't see a conspiracy here, just a good con by Loren.

Stop wasting your time on poorly written and essentially non-supported software and find an alternative. This way you can enjoy less stressful experiences and specifically in terms of Clips, one that actually launches...

There is a Clips beta version that fixes much of the memory issues and the abbreviations. But is pretty unstable, at least for me.

The didn't inform any old customers (or they do it????) and let us bought this app in the past over a macheist promotion, but without any updates over a year. Now Clips cost around 5 dollars in the AppStore.

I wrote them a Mail a few seconds ago.

Sorry if my english is not the best, but it's not my foreign language. But I think the developer will understand what I will say to them...


Hi there,

after a long time I take a view on your application named "Clips" and I noticed, that you put an update online.

I try to download it, because I bought Clips 1.5 in the past over macheist, but I found now download button. I take a look on your twitter feed and now I was angry... You give the app out for free at the start and now... You would have money again? Sorry folks, but I think you know what happen in the past with version 1.5. If not, pls. read all the comments on macheist around your application. A lot of users reporting that the have a big problem with the memory (including me by the way). Your software was unusable and there was no update for over a year.
-> http://www.macheist.com/forums/viewtopi … =16952&p=1

Is that what you understand under support for customers? Why we didn't get an mail that you give it for free on the App Store? Only one guy on macheist post in the old thread something around the free App in the AppStore...

So I hope, that you will give all customers from the old macheist deal a chance, to download it again for free, because your software was official buggy in the past.

To be honest, this is bullshit! I mean: come on it's a clipboard tool ... something you may want to have on all your machines. Together with the "locked" RapidReaver that was not indicated as such when I initially bought the bundle, I'm feeling more and more ripped off. Definitely not the user experience I am used to here at MacHeist - disappointing :-(
