Cloud Copy: A Unified Clipboard

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Moving text from your iPhone to your Mac usually involves copying it to an email. Sending the email. Copying it from the email and pasting it where I need to it go. Usually it's a URL or snippet of text I need access to while on the go. And getting text from the Mac to the iPhone is the same in reverse. Cloud Copy creates a cloud-based clipboard that makes copying and pasting between devices easy.

What's it do?

Cloud Copy grabs whatever is in your Mac or iOS device's clipboard and sends it to the cloud where it's synced with any devices you have attached to your account. A push notification tells you when a new clipboard item has been added to the service. You can have multiple clipboard items saved to Cloud Copy and the service works over Wi-Fi or 3G-no tethering required. Additionally, users can share clipboard contents with friends with Cloud Copy accounts.


Why do we like it?

Saving bits of text and URLs in the cloud is quicker than sending an email or working with iOS's wonky Notes app. I get so many emails in a day, anything I wanted quick access too is buried after a few hours. Cloud Copy keeps those tidbits available at any time on any of my iOS device. Plus, the developer is working on an Android, Windows Phone, and Windows version of the service. The biggest downer is that you have to pay for the mobile and the desktop app separately.
