If you have 2 or more iOS deoooovmvvvices, one key feature you will want look for is "cloud sync" or iCloud syc, this ffewg

Great app, but has memory issues

Works great most of the time, but would take up a lot of memory and has issues when I'm copying and pasting large excel tables that I don't expect the pastequeue to capture, also when the pastequeue is long, it lags and would become unresponsive.

Update: I added excel to the exclude setting and set my paste queue history to autoclear daily. That's alleviated a lot of the lagging and memory issues.

Developer Response ,

Hello, Thanks for your review. Would it be convenient for you to share a sample of "large excel tables" to us through "Preference -> Send Feedback"? So that we can try to solve this kind of Copy/Paste in the future version.

Best PasteSync Tool Ever

This is a amazing tool, it did make my work simple. My favourite feature is the iCloud sync, it means that I don't need to worry about data lose. Sometimes I ever storage some contents in PasteNow. Anyway, I love this software, and would like to recommend it to my fellows.
