Often, we have to write things to a word limit but for quick drafts perhaps not open a proper word processor, preferring something nimble like TextEdit, but at the expense of a word count. Clipcounter solves this and many other issues by providing a universal word count, and quickly showing the user detailed information about the contents of their clipboard.

The current version (1.1) features:

  • Character, word and paragraph counts free of charge
  • Alphanumeric character count, average characters per word, average words per sentence and an ARI readability index all available for just $2.50
  • Live updating – leave it open and when you copy something new it shows a new count without any action needed from you
