If you've been looking for a good clipboard management tool for Android, there's no better time to take a look at Clipper. The app just updated to v2.1, which brings a pretty incredible feature: cross-device syncing. This means you can copy text from one device, and paste it on another. That's just badass.

Of course, there are potential security worries with a feature of this nature – like passwords, for example. Personally, I copy passwords from KeePassDroid quite frequently, and I know Artem uses LastPass to do the same thing. Understandably, this is the type of information that no one wants shared across multiple devices through the cloud.

That caveat aside, cross-device sync of clipboard contents is definitely a potentially useful feature; if you think you could find value in something like that, Clipper Plus will set you back two bucks. There's also a free version of Clipper, though it doesn't feature cloud syncing capabilities.

Thanks, Scuttlefield!

    The fact that I use KeePassDroid keeps me from using a traditional clipboard manager, let alone one with remote capabilities.

    I know that it is noted in the article that you can get the free version that doesn't have Sync capabilities, if this is a concern for you. But also not that you can get the paid version (and still support the developer) but you don't have to turn on the sync capabilities. It's an optional process.

    I would prefer EverClip. It also has a good clipboard

    I've been using Clipper+ for a couple of months and I'm completely in love with it. It correctly implements the new background notification feature (no icon in the notification bar, but it has a line item in the pull-down list), it's really fast and easy to use, and pretty configurable. There are definitely some modifications I'd like to see, but it is one of the few apps that really does it's job well.
