Feature Request: Mobile App URL Scheme and/or Clipboard Fusion Online REST API

morpheus867's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
This may exist already...

I need (or at least, really want -- for automation purposes and automatic sync now that IOS7 is jailbroken),
an x-callback-url URL scheme for the clipboard fusion app on ios that would allow me to call the main functions of CF -- new recent, pin, etc, from other apps/plugins, like Launch Center PRO and ActionMenu.

Just as good or better would be some documentation of the CF Online API so I could create some scripts manually or facilitate direct transfers between accounts.

Thank you!

Unfortunately the ClipboardFusion API isn't open, but what are you trying to sync? Are you using the ClipboardFusion iOS app?

As he mentioned, Launch Center Pro is what he wanted to automate in ios with your product. I would like to call and return to drafts in ios so that every clip action is recorded in clipboard fusion. You may want to look at this before drafts beats you to it. Drafts is the ideal way to sell this product to ios users. It seems like the 3 main cloud clipboards don't get how ios works yet. Perhaps you could be first? Cloud Clipboard has a url launch, but no callback. It would help if you looked up the x-callback request on their site to see a detailed Drafts request in their support queue. Or follow this link

We want it to work with

How drafts works:

As you can see, Drafts catches input text in ios, the background issues with ios can be resolved with this work around for grabbing the copied text each time a clip is executed from drafts!

x-callback support would be amazing.

i think ClipboardFusion is the only clipping app on iOS that has a desktop version for Windows. All the others I've checked out (which is a lot) only have Mac, bookmarklets, or browser extension versions.

there are so many clipping apps/services out there, i'm positive that if x-callback was implemented you would see ClipboardFusion get a lot of attention in social media.

What exactly is this Drafts application? It sounds like you want ClipboardFusion to work with Drafts, not an iOS feature, correct? Forgive my ignorance on this subject, I just want to make sure I understand specifically what you're after.

Here are some tools for you to enhance your app. clipboadfusion is useful, I use it on chrome and windows. However, on Mac and ios it really doesn't compare to other apps. Check out cloudclipboard, cloudclip, everclip, clipboard history and manager, and possibly even PushBullet. Drafts works on the same principals of pinning and archiving items. But, it is not a clipboard manager, it is a hub for text to be moved from one program to another before being used by actions. Some of those actions can be incredibly recursive and powerful automations. What I would like to see is a url scheme I can call from drafts that captures every clip automatically. In the meantime, auto adding clips and syncing across ios are basic features that would harmonize desktops and mobile devices. Android has a few apps. But, it would be pretty easy to design on ios and port to android. Here are links so you have the research handy.

Unfortunately I abandoned the app and desktop because of no scheme on the phone.

Except for that, I loved everything else, the webapp, client, and app.

Now I have all these workarounds and app combinations to get clips around. Still faster than traditional doc sharing or email.

Brian is right, there are tons of apps for device/device/desktop of Mac. But none afaik for device/desktop/device for windows.

Please consider it. I believe that once you get into the documentation to implement you'll find a lot of what you would need to do is already there you just have tweak existing code. (from what I understand)

Check out some actions being fired and you will see why it would be a really nice thing to have.

We love the idea of having x-scheme URL support. In this can you can easily add two iconx to the homescreen for instant get / put clipboard content (e.g. for the most recent item) without the need to do it by hand in the app.

All thumbs up for that great idea!!!
