To Clipboard is a simple solution to a complex problem. It lets items be shared to the clipboard to be pasted elsewhere. And it just works. The app requires no permissions, is just 13.39 KB, and hasn’t even been updated since 2010. It still works perfectly on Jelly Bean. It’s one of those relentlessly simple apps that doesn’t even need to be more complex.
The reason it’s necessary is because of complexity. Sometimes there’s a piece of text that needs to be copied, yet the native copy and paste functionality makes it difficult to get that text copied perfectly. Or an app’s text output needs to be shared to an app tat doesn’t support sharing. Or maybe a writer like myself just needs to get a URL from Google Play to put into a blog post. Before, I would use workarounds to get to my solution, but now, with this simple workaround, my life is just a little bit easier. A simple solution to a complex problem.
