CloudClip Manager lets you automatically share your clipboard items between all your devices.

It’s a handy menu of your recent clipboard items.

And the automatic iCloud sync makes it the easiest way to transfer phone numbers, locations, notes, and more between your Macs, iPhones, and iPads.

On the Mac: Any time you copy something to the clipboard, it automatically syncs to iCloud. Open CloudClip on your iOS device to access it.

On the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch: Copy something to the clipboard, open CloudClip to start the sync, and then access it from the CloudClip menu on your Mac.

Works between all your Macs and iOS devices!

It's incredibly useful.

-Syncs your last 5-50 (15 by default) clipboard items, either manually or automatically.
-Will ignore clips from 1Password.
-Easily clear items individually or all at once with the Clear menu.

Global hotkey: Access the CloudClip menu with Control+Option+Command+V.


- Requires iCloud.
- iOS sync requires CloudClip for iOS, available in the iTunes App Store.
- For OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, see notes below for information about iCloud Drive


If things don't seem to be working properly, try the following on all your devices. (iCloud settings are found at Settings -> iCloud on your iOS devices, and System Preferences -> iCloud on your Macs.)
- Check all your devices are using the same iCloud account.
- Check Documents & Data or iCloud Drive is enabled on all your devices. (See below for notes on iCloud Drive.)
- Try restarting your devices.
- Try disabling and then re-enabling Documents & Data or iCloud Drive on your devices.

iCloud Drive
- iCloud Drive is a replacement feature, introduced in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, for the Documents & Data feature in older versions of iOS.
- OS X Yosemite requires iCloud Drive, and will not sync with older versions of OS X or iOS.
- iOS 8 supports either iCloud Drive (to sync with OS X Yosemite) or Documents & Data (to sync with older versions of iOS and OS X).
- You can enable iCloud Drive in Settings -> iCloud on your iOS 8+ devices, and System Preferences -> iCloud on OS X.
- Once you upgrade to iCloud Drive, older versions will no longer sync at all. The upgrade is irreversible.
- See this Apple Support document for more information:

Pretty good, but a few issues...

Good app and I like the fact that it lets me replace two apps, Clipboard History and NetClipboard with a single app. That's cool.

What I miss about Clipboard History, however, is that selecting a menu item from the history list automatically pastes the text or image into the current app. With CloudClip every interaction is now a two-step process: 1) Select from menu. 2) Cmd-V. May not seem like much, but I'm a developer and I used Clipboard History probably a hundred times a day. Be nice to have an auto-paste option.

Second, the iCloud sync works, but is a bit slow compared to NetClipboard, which listens on the local WiFi network for app broadcast "clipboard" events. As such, a clipboard copy across computers (which I also do quite often) is pretty much instanteous. Cmd-C here, Cmd-V there. With CloudClip I have to Cmd-C here, wait for it to appear in the menu, select it (since the most recently copied item isn't automatically selected) and then Cmd-V.

NetClipboard also understands copying files in the Finder, whereas CloudClip only seems to copy the name of the file.

So... there's a few workflow issues that, added up, may sway me into going back to my separate apps. If it doesn't sound like those things might be issues for you, go for it.

I really, really like & appreciate this app

Cloudclip is the equivalent of a memory key on a calculator. Instead of only being able to copy/paste the last thing you copied, you can past any number of the last things you copied — and with the latest version, up to 50 of them! I use it constantly, daily, as an integral part of my workflow doing research and writing, saving a ton of time over the long term. I am surprised this functionality isn’t built in on Macs, and since it doesn’t, I’m really glad Cloudclip exists! Highly recommend it.

I’d be lost without this!

This is one of the apps I use every day between my mac and iPhone/iPad, but also just to clip from reading material and come back to in my iOS device and later post a number of things back into a document. I love this app. I’d be lost without it.
