Unclutter 2 for Mac

Unclutter 2 for Mac

We first told you about Unclutter app for Mac back in February 2013, albeit briefly, in our second issue of The Platter. Unclutter was designed to keep the clutter off your Desktop by giving you a place to temporarily store your clipboard history, files and notes just above your Menubar and it did a stellar job at it. Since then, the developers have added several improvements to it and recently released Unclutter 2 on the Mac App Store.

The biggest change in Unclutter 2 is essentially to the three separate apps living inside of it. In the first version, the Notes app would only let you create a single note. With Unclutter 2, you can now create as many notes as you want and view them right inside the app. You can even search within your notes and find any string of text you want. The Files panel has been vastly updated as well, with support for sorting your files by date added, date modified, name or kind. You can also now drag and drop files inside a folder that the panel contains. I love that you can make your Clipboard items as favorites inside the Clipboard panel and access them later using the Star glyph. Unclutter 2 also offers full support for multiple displays, one of my main annoyances with the original app.

Unclutter 2 also ships with a new, light design that goes with OS X Yosemite’s design. A dark version is currently being worked on. You can grab it from the Mac App Store for $4.99.
