CloudClipboard Syncs Your Clipboard Between Macs And iDevices

Mac/iOS: We copy and paste things all day long, both on our computers and mobile devices. CloudClipboard keeps all that information in sync so you can access your clipboard history anywhere with minimal effort.

Clipboard managers are a dime a dozen, and they’re not necessarily all that useful on their own. We have so many tools to keep information that a clipboard history isn’t something we need to dive into all that often. That said, sometimes we copy information on one machine and need it on another, and CloudClipboard provides that functionality without much work on your part.

It integrates with iCloud, and you simply have to turn sync on when prompted to get your clipboard history on other devices using that same account. From there, you just copy and paste as normal — for the most part. The main downside to CloudClipboard is that anything you copy isn’t automatically added to the history. You have to bring the app to the front first for it to register the clipboard contents. This isn’t a big encumbrance and prevents storing information you don’t want synced. You can also easily add items not in your clipboard by dragging them in.

It’s one of the easiest ways we’ve seen to transfer information between Apple devices. It is a little costly, however, at $5.49 for Mac and $2.99 for iOS. Chrome users can grab Clipboard Sync to sync between computers only, and Windows and Android users can get ClipSync.
