Paste+: Clipboard Actions


With the introduction of iOS 8 there are a lot of new apps which will enhance your productivity.
Paste+ | Clipboard Action Widget by Avanio Labs is such an app and I use it now on a daly base on my iPad. It's essential an iPhone-app, but after installing and configuring the app, it works with no hassle1 on my iPad.

How to use the app?

After copying something from any app, e.g. Mail or Safari, you can open Notification Center and perform quick tasks with the clipboard content. You may also use the last screenshot/image saved in your photo library by pressing the camera icon in the widget.

Paste+ supports plain text, rich text, web links, and images (e.g. screenshot/web images). Due to performance issues, it does not support photos taken with a camera or images in large size.

Clipboard actions

After installing Paste+ you must activate the widget in your Today-screen of your Notification Center through the Edit-button below.
After copying a (rich)text, a link or an image, the widget will show your choice with an icon (see screenhots).
After tapping the icon, you will see the action-menu that you have set up before in the settings of the app.

  1. I have to admit that I had to activate the different possibilities (text, rich text, links and images) a couple of times, but after an update of the app the problems were over.
