Microsoft said to be working on a cross platform virtual clipboard app called OneClip
Microsoft is working on a cross-platform clipboard app that will allow you to take notes on a virtual clipboard, and have that clipboard accessible by devices running a myriad of other platforms. The name of the app is OneClip and the Windows and Windows Phone flavored versions of it are currently being tested internally by Microsoft.

According to a description of the app leaked by Twitter member @h0x0d, OneClip will let you store a screenshot, a phone number, an address or any important information. When the time comes that you need to have this information at your fingertips, OneClip will allow you to access it regardless if you're using an iOS, Android, Windows or Windows Phone device.


OneClip sounds like it could be very useful. The internal beta has garnered a 5-star rating from 12 reviews on the Windows Phone Store. It is unknown at this point when we will see Microsoft release the app, but it sure sounds like something that will find a large number of users as soon as it hits the various app stores.

Oh, I guess that's not too surprising since its probably still a very Alpha build I haven't actually tried it yet

I tried too but was to late and couldnt get it to launch. It loads up on start though on the win10 pc of mine. Was eagerly wanting to show it off at work for production cause we use copy paste so much.

This would also be on iOS so if Android gets a security hole cause of this even though thats hardly gonna happen best believe that iOS will get 2 more

Strangely, only Droids get malwares under the same condition. That's the beauty of Android.

This is not a note, this is you on your pc, when you hit ctrl-c or right click copy, it is now in the cloud to be available to past anywhere. No special things needed. This includes texts and images.

Neh, won't want to start print what I copy/cut in the hands of the NSA. I already do this on my OnePlus One and Surface Pro via Mimo without any nonsense cloud storage in the middle.
