If you are looking for a simple notepad app and care about elegance and practicality, Clippings is here to help. Built for taking quick notes, storing images and URLs as well as links to most-used files, Clippings focuses on simplicity and ease and looks great too!

Simple yet powerful

Clippings is all about making day-to-day tasks as easy as can be. Advanced features like highlighting, URL detection and automatic page naming are all available, yet simple to use.

A Great organizational tool

Clippings starts out as a simple notepad, but as you will see, it really helps you organize your information. There are folders to group your notes or in which you can drop files for quick access. The Full Search or Quicksearch tools allow you to find what you need fast!

But more importantly, if for any reason you need to access a specific note within another program, you can open your Clippings document and display its contents. Use the Finder’s contextual menu to “Open the package contents” of a Clippings file. Each page is actually a full RTF document you can modify as you wish!


Need to find the next occurrence of a word in a single note, or within every note? Find the next or previous occurrence by using the QuickFind tool! Need more? You can search and replace within a page, or do a document-wide search using the Folder view’s Search bar as well.
