Microsoft OneClip is a cross-platform cloud clipboard app
Continuing with its new focus on a cross-platform strategy, Microsoft is developing a new productivity tool called OneClip. It’s a cloud clipboard application that allows for easy copy and pasting of data between devices, regardless of their operating system.
OneClip is a universal clipboard app that can be installed onto multiple devices across a variety of platforms. Once installed, users can retrieve items copied to their online clipboard using the application. To pair the apps, you will have to enter a randomly generated number onto each device before data is synced up. The process is always on in the background, so you won’t have to manually copy data in and out of different app screens unless you want an older file.
The app works with text, images, phone numbers and even web clippings, among others, and can be organized by different categories. Content refreshing is done automatically at regular intervals, but can be forced manually if required. OneClip stores a history of your copied items, not just your last copy, and these can also be deleted from all your synced devices, if so required.
We’re not sure about an exact launch date for Android just yet, but OneClip is said to be heading to Android, Windows, Windows Phone, and iOS once it finishes its current stint in an internal closed beta.
