If you’re juggling work across multiple iOS devices, you may have come across a familiar drawback: How do you share anything between them with ease? Sure, you can copy text or links into Notes and have it synced via iCloud, but what about images you'd like to pass on from your iPhone to your iPad, or sending a section of a webpage to your iPod touch? You’d most likely use email for that, but that's not terribly efficient.
That's where CloudClipboard comes in. It’s a clever app designed to save whatever you’ve copied into the memory of your iOS device or Mac (using that version of the app) and sync it effortlessly through your iCloud account to all your other devices. The way it works is really simple: copy something – be it text, a URL, image, or a web-clip (part of a section of a webpage you can copy) – and then switch to CloudClipboard and that content is automatically added to it.
Once in the app, you can add a title to your copied item, as well as edit your text or URL. It’s also possible to create a text file and use CloudClipboard as a standard notation tool, as well. If you’re not a fan of Photo Stream, you can grab images from your photo library and add them to CloudClipboard, either by copying them from the Photos app or creating a new image file, then choosing which one to add from within the app itself.
If there’s a drawback to be found, it’s the uncertainty of what some of the icons represent. Will it duplicate a file for instance, or will it paste the content of the clipboard? Luckily, it only takes a couple of goes to figure out which does which. Also, the app reminds you to relaunch it to keep its connection to iCloud active, which can be a blessing or a curse depending on your situation. Luckily, you can easily disable that feature through the Notifications section in the device's Settings.
The bottom line. CloudClipboard piggybacks off of iCloud and provides a highly convenient way of moving little bits of information around. If you work a lot between iOS devices, you’ll really appreciate the convenience of effortless syncing between them.
iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later
More powerful than Apple's Notes app. Works flawlessly: copy anything and it'll appear in the app. Can edit text and URLs and create new notes from scratch. Can save images and web-clips.
Takes a bit to understand how it all works, where everything is stored, and how to access it. No landscape view on iPhone or iPod touch, even while editing.
