Clipboard Contents is a simple and lightweight clipboard manager which watches your clipboard for any changes and saves its contents for later use.

The contents from the clipboard history can be copied into the clipboard again, they can be edited, deleted, searched, and shared too. When sharing links they can be optionally shortened if URLy is installed. Any links in the contents will be quickly picked up and extra options will be available to open or share them directly from the device. HTTP and Market links are amongst the supported types.

Clipboard Contents can be easily turned off from the settings if it is no longer needed, and its operation can be customised to match the user's needs. The clipboard collection is intelligently stopped when the device isn't being used any more, which makes it very battery-friendly.

In addition it integrates with the Android Quick Search Bar so you can directly search your clipboard history. It further integrates with Google's cloud backup and restore, so any time you wipe your device your contents and settings will be restored the next time you install the application (only works on Android 2.2+ and backup/restore must be enabled in the 'Privacy' settings for your device).

If you have a Sony device you will be able to access the Clipboard Contents Small App from the Recents menu. It will allow you to easily save something to the contents, or even to the clipboard, without closing the app that you have currently open.

* Third-party lockscreens may disable clipboard collection (email me if this happens).
* On rooted devices saving the clipboard on reboot/shutdown may not always work (please use the standard shutdown option).
* Samsung devices have known issues with setting and clearing the keyboard. Please report these to Samsung first.
* Small Apps functionality will only work for some device. Please note that I can't decide which devices have this functionality, as it is entirely up to Sony.

Permissions explained:
* Start at boot - to start the service when the device starts up and to restore clipboard (both can be disabled in settings)
* Internet - for cloud backup/restore, billing, and advertisements (yes, development is partly ad-supported)
* Billing - for in-app purchases to remove ads as a way of supporting development
* Writing to external storage - for backing up and restoring contents using XML files

    I can't believe how long it took me to find this. Just what I was looking for! I've had it two minutes, and I've already upgraded. Thank you!

    The only improvement I can suggest is to have the clipboard icon show up beside the Paste icon, sometimes it appears, but not often. Also a cross platform option would be nice.

    Not always stays in the memory, so sometime loses items that were copied into clipboard.

    I was exactly looking for kind of application to copy edit paste text across apps and clipboard. I am used this app very much now. I am even copy/pasting my passwords in to different apps (though risky, thought it is OK to take this risk given the benefit of not having to painfully type small keyboard) Thanks to the author for his effort & time. feature request: 1. I don't think time stamp is a
