    Meet OneClip, Microsoft's cross-platform universal clipboard

    OneClip is an internal, cross-platform app developed by Microsoft that wants to be a universal clipboard for all of your devices. Though not yet publicly released, the app runs on Windows 10 desktop and mobile, Android and iOS.

    Note taking apps like OneNote and Evernote typically offer some functionality when it comes to quickly organizing screenshots, copied text and so on. But OneClip takes that concept and runs with it, across all platforms, with near instantaneous syncing.

    Once you install OneClip on a device, like a Windows 10 PC, the app starts to collect everything you copy to your clipboard. Images, text, screenshots, links and so on, all get collected and organized by time and date, device, app and so forth. Then they get displayed in a neat easy to use interface, from where users can then share the content, pin it as important, or simply delete it.

    You can also have all of your notes, pins, screenshots and so on move around with you on any device, by registering devices with a code issued when you launch the app. For example, you can have your desktop, laptop and iPhone all synced together so all of the display the same saved content. In fact this behavior wasisbaked into the app from the start as the launch notes explain:

    With Oneclip, itís easy to get back to the stuff youíve seen and used. It might be a photo you took, a screenshot you made, a phone number or address you copied on your PC (and really really need now while youíre on the run) or just an important piece of text. OneClip makes this available to you automatically, on your behalf, on all your devices. A cross device, secure, intelligent clipboard in the cloud. Why didnít anyone think of this earlier?

    Sounds like a nice feature

    terrible for slow/capped users, so will pass on this one, but it does sound nice

    Microsoft nixes leaked OneClip beta apps

    Looks like yesterday's leak of Microsoft's new OneClip apps and service did not go over well with Redmond. The unannounced data sharing service lets you pass photos, screenshots and text from your phone to PC to whatever device. It seemed to be an early hit, but the company was not yet ready to show it off.

    This morning, however, Microsoft has evidently killed the leaked apps on the backend. Users who had paired devices will now find the software unpaired with their phones. Even more, if you try to generate a pairing code, nothing happens.

    The party is over.
