It has been revealed that Microsoft is developing a new multi-platform cloud clipboard app called OneClip. The idea behind this app is very simple. You can copy something to the clipboard on one device and access it on another, and you’ll be able to do that because the clipboard is based in the cloud. The app would be the latest addition to Microsoft’s recent string of productivity related moves, and will prove to be quite useful.
Microsoft is no longer shy about releasing apps for other platforms. In recent months it has released various apps and services for iOS and Android, so it won’t be surprising at all when OneClip arrives on those platforms as well.
The “One” branding with this latest productivity creation is in line with the company’s OneNote and OneDrive services which also rely heavily on the cloud to provide excellent productivity features to users across multiple platforms.
The latest app was discovered by Twitter user @h0x0d, it appears to be an internal beta at this point in time but will be headed to Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Windows.
It’s unclear at this point in time when Microsoft intends to launch OneClip, the app has already received very positive reviews on the Windows App Store, so it’s likely that its official release might not be that far off.
