    Recently, some really good copy and paste apps have been released. Although Clippy seems to be getting the most praise, I thought I would go ahead and compare it to hClipboard.

    Clippy
    Pros:able to selectively copy text with its highlighting feature, easy to figure out how to use, can copy an entire page of text, very simple. Has a clipboard.

    Cons: still in beta, difficult to highlight text at times.

    hClipboard
    Pros: can easily copy entire page of text from Notes and other apps, also able to selectively copy text using the "select from here" feature, has more features so its more complex and harder to figure out. Has clipboard.

    Cons: can sometimes be difficult trying to delete what is on the clipboard, complex UI difficult to figure out (took longer).

    If you want a copy & paste app that's simple, easy to use, and is better for copying & pasting smaller amounts of texts, you'd want to use Clippy. If you want a copy & paste app that's more complex, has more features, and is better for copying chunks of text, you'd want to use hClipboard.
