Why not? We sync Calendar, Contacts, Bookmarks, Keychain, and other valuable pieces of information between our Apple gadgets. What’s one more? Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t even believe in multiple clipboards. The Mac’s clipboard does pretty much what it always has, dating back to the last century.
Cloud Clip is one such utility for the Mac, and it has a brother app called Cloud Clip for Mobile which is free, (I would have used Cloud Clip Go, but that’s me) and that lets you sync up clipboard items between Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
Install each app on each Apple device and whatever you copy onto the clipboard gets saved and synced between the devices.
Who needs a clipboard manager? Who needs a clipboard manager that syncs between devices?
Admittedly, not everyone, and even if you do, not all the time. But Cloud Clip is very handy and an easy way to get something copied from one device to another without resorting to saving text in Dropbox or iCloud Drive or sending it via email to yourself.
If you’ve never used a clipboard manager utility, this is a good one to try. Think about the time it can save you. Instead of copying the same thing over and over again, copy it once, store it, paste it anytime after that.
The Mac version also has numeric shortcuts for the top 10 most used clippings. Settings let you blacklist an app so you won’t send a password or login ID from 1Password to all your devices. There’s even a setting to prune older clipboard clippings to save space.
Cloud Clip syncs between Macs and with the mobile version it syncs up to iOS devices, too. Decent, simple to use, and not expensive.
