SwiftKey Beta Adds Native Clipboard Viewer, Support For Multiple Clipboard Snippets
In probably one of the biggest updates yet, SwiftKey added a native clipboard viewer and support for multiple “snippets” of previously cut/copied text. The popular keyboard app will save your snippets for an hour by default or you can pin them for long-term preservation. You can access the clipboard via the hub (hamburger menu to the left of the text suggestions) or in the main menu.
While you’re typing, simply open the hub and tap the clipboard icon on the far right to see your snippets and tap on the snippet you want to paste. Whenever you cut or copy text in any app (even if your SwiftKey keyboard isn’t open), it’s automatically added to a new snippet that you can then paste when using the keyboard.
The full changelog from SwiftKey’s Play Store listing follows:
Clipboard makes copy & pasting better by giving you control. View the snippets you’ve copied or cut in the last hour, pin the ones you want to keep for longer and add email, addresses and other text you often type.
– Remembers the snippets you’ve copied/cut for an hour
– Copy multiple snippets without losing all but the last one you copied or cut
– Pin the ones you want to keep for longer
– Add your own commonly used snippets such as emails & addresses
– Find it in the Hub & settings
