How many times have you typed something long, be it a URL or text message, only to accidentally erase the entire thing and have to start over? That has happened to me more times than I care to count, but thanks to a new app called Clip Ninja, that scenario could be a thing of the past.

The idea behind Clip Ninja is pretty simple: it keeps track of most things that you type. Of course, there are limitations (and in this case, that's a good thing) - it can't keep track of passwords. What it can do, though, is store all of the text that you input into any native app, which covers basically everything that you use on a daily basis.

Before we continue, let's address address the privacy concerns that you're surely having at this point. This app requires no special permissions. None. At all. Basically, all it does it store your data locally, so it doesn't need any permissions to do so.

It will work with any keyboard, in [almost] any app. Clip Ninja eliminates the need to type anything twice ever again. If you ask me, that's just convenient.

The app is $1.49 in the Android Market, hit the widget to grab it!

    Fourth paragraph:

    nice app... by the way, one more correction:
    third para, 1st line...
    "Before we continue, let's address address the privacy concerns"

    you have address word twice... i believe you meant to have it only once... :-)

    Can't another app read its text file? Isn't this a concern?

      No. Apps are sandboxed by the system and they can't read each other's data.
