Escapers introduces Shadow Clipboard Utility

August 31, 2008 in Mac OSX (E)

[] London, United Kingdom - The Escapers is delighted announce the release of a brand new product into Free Public Beta. Shadow is an incredible new Mac utility for managing multiple clipboard items, in as many clipboards as the user desires. Not only this, but the clipboards can be shared over your local network, either for everyone to use, or password protected.

Shadow is ideal for any power Mac user who needs a multiple clipboard item manager, and comes into it's own in Mac workgroups who frequently share data and work on the same projects. Shadow is installed as a menu item alongside Spotlight, Time Machine and other system extension. It's hidden from view until the user hits their own defined key shortcut, Shadow is then displayed and your local and network clipboards are made available. Clipboard items can be double-clicked to insert them into the system clipboard and then the shortcut hit again to hide Shadow.

Shadow uses Apple's Bonjour technology to automatically seek out other Shadow users on your network, and they'll appear in your copy of Shadow the moment they are discovered. Not only can Shadow find other copies of Shadow all by itself, they also form a "family" and notify each other of changes, so the moment a clipboard item is added, it appears in all other copies of Shadow browsing that clipboard.

To make it easy to see who owns which copy of Shadow, your user picture is displayed, along with your name and an optional note to describe yourself.

Intelligent caching is used to make Shadow quick and responsive even over busy or slow networks. To make sure Shadow keeps going even while other users are viewing your clipboards, Shadow runs a slimline multi-threaded server process which makes use of your Mac's multiple processing cores.

This user interface is non-intrusive and quickly becomes second-nature as an essential add-on for any busy Mac user.

Shadow is available for free to gauge user feedback and to learn how users work with Shadow. Shadow is compatible with Tiger and Leopard, so even users on older Macs can benefit.
