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 very 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 older operating system users: OS versions older than OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 are not compatible with newer OS versions. See our website for more information.


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 iCloud Drive (or Documents & Data for older operating systems) is enabled on all your devices. (See below for notes on iCloud Drive.)
- Try restarting your devices.
- Try disabling and then re-enabling iCloud Drive on your devices.
- See our website for more information on using CloudClip with older versions of iOS and OS X.

If those don't seem to do the trick, email me at Thanks!

Works Perfectly!!

I have used this for a couple years now and it is my go to clip manager. It works with any variety of Macs, iPads, iPhones that I throw at it and has worked flawlessly. It even blocks out copy/pastes for 1Password or your password app (nice benefit since you don't want someone copying your passwords). 

This app can either start automatically with your device or can be started/stopped how you wish. I have compared this with others and think this is the best. If you copy/paste images only this may not be what you want if you need a visual peek a boo display. But if it is for text, files, locations, etc. This is the best.

It syncs flawlessly with iCloud as well. Highly recommend!

Love it but no updates in 2 years

I have been a big fan of Cloud Clip. But no updates in 2 years has left it a little long in the tooth. The iCloud sync feature is very useful for someone like me who has multiple Macs, an iPhone, and an iPad. I have taken advantage of being able to copy an item to the clipboard on one Apple device and have it be on my other Apple devices. CloudClip is very user friendly and intuitive. For some reason, CloudClip will stop saving items to the clipboard and I have to either quit and restart the app or go into Activity Monitor and force quit the "pboard" process to relaunch the clipboard's daemon processes to regain functionality. This is the case on all our family's Macs (2015 iMac, 2018 Mac Mini, 2019 MacBook Air, 2014 MBP). I hope the developer has not died.

Works perfect - small glitch

This little application works perfectky. Sometimes, I found that if I have two devices turned on and this application is running on both, there are duplicate entries. No big deal. It is a very simple solution to a small but large problem, specially for a person like me who hates to type.
