The iMessage Clipboard

February 25, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

This might seem obvious or dumb, depending on your sensibilities, but the new Messages app makes a decent universal clipboard.

  1. Copy a link, photo or text and paste into iMessage on Mac, iPhone or iPad.1
  2. Send a message to myself.
  3. Boom.

Yeah, it's a little kludgy and ugly but it works. Since when is a clipboard pretty?

  1. Sending a file from the Mac version works too. On iOS I get an option to "Open In..." another app. Unfortunately I do not see a way to send a file from iOS.
