Earlier this morning, news about a new app from Microsoft called OneClip started to make the rounds. The app is analogous to Kopy on Windows and Windows Phone today, and it lets you share photos, screenshots, text and more from your PC to your phones.
OneClip is in development for iOS, Android, Windows and Windows Phone. We will have a hands-on video detailing how it all works coming up very shortly, but for now you can take a look at the Windows Phone app, which runs nicely on Windows Phone 8.1.
Interestingly, the Windows Phone version has an option to pin a OncClip Camera to the Start screen. This quick-action lets you snap a photo, which then quickly saves to OneClip (using OneDrive as the mediator). This ability seems to be a unique feature of Windows Phone, as Android and iOS do not offer this option.
Overall, the app's design language is very Windows 10-ish with a hamburger menu, large fonts, and translucent UI elements. Unlike Android, however, merely taking a screenshot does not automatically save to OneClip. This inability is presumably a limitation on Windows Phone, which does not let apps run in the background. However, users can simply use the universal Share picker to post content to their OneClip account.
The actual app itself is part of Microsoft's 'Internal Beta' account, although users can download the app. However, you will need a @microsoft account to log into the app unless you had already set up and paired with a PC.
You can download the necessary files from MEGA. However, we should caution that installing apps from unknown sources could pose a security risk.
