Photographic Memory for All Your Mac Apps!

Skim Clip is a unique new utility for OS X that combines Optical Character Recognition (OCR) with screen capture features to create a powerful and convenient new way of saving and organizing your information.

Skim Clip can capture the contents of any window or screen area, scan and save all its text including words in images, and store it into organized categories — all with a single keypress.

With the clipping converted into scanned computer text, you can instantly search thousands of clippings to find what you're looking for. Like a photographic memory with a search engine, Skim Clip makes it easy to keep, find, and reuse anything that's ever on your screen!
