User Testimonials
Click To View All, or add your own!I was introduced to Clipmate in March of 1999. I bought it immediately after the 30 day trial. I thought then that it was the most useful and versatile piece of software I had on my machine. I've been 'selling' it ever since and never have I received anything but positive feedback on this 'utility'. I bought a new laptop and began installing software but found I was getting more and more tense .. then the lightbulb came on and I realized I hadn't installed Clipmate. It's not a flashy piece of software, it just quietly runs in the background doing what I ask/need it to do. It truly is indespensible. I've been unable to work for about a year and I didn't think that I'd be using this software as much as I did when I was working but I use it more - I have to minimize my time on the computer to about 2 hours per day. So, when I'm surfing on a topic, I can just copy what I want, Clipmate handles it. I can get a lot more done when I don't have to stop and do the paste part of the exercise. I use it as a kind of diary of what I did when because I don't delete until I want to. Clipmate has saved me so many times when the only place I could find the info I was searching for was in Clipmate or one of its archives. And, let us not foget filling out forms - what a lifesaver - the info I need is in one little place and I don't have to bounce back and forth from form top to bottom to get info already entered. I love Clipmate - I recommend it as a foundation pice of software for any system. It should be eom - have you talked to Dell? Thank you so much for making my life easier for these last 7 years and for many in the future.

The ClipMate Trophy Case

ClipMate Trophy

Over its 16+ year lifetime, ClipMate has won numerous awards, been reviewed in dozens of magazines, included in books, and featured on radio broadcasts. These days, many awards have become meaningless.  We know someone who put up a product page for software that wouldn't even run - on purpose!  It was quickly awarded dozens of "5 star" ratings. 

But there ARE good reviewers out there, and here are some things that actual people had to say about a program that they actually tried. Many of these people still use ClipMate in their daily lives, and we're grateful for the exposure.
