Supercharge Your Android Clipboard Manager with Xposed

The Android OS has offered unified, system-wide copy/paste functionality for quite some time. But like most implementations on the majority of OSes, the stock Android clipboard manager only retains the clipboard’s latest entry. Luckily there are tools available in order to expand the clipboard manager’s functionality.

One such tool was developed by XDA Senior Member plbelanger with his app Clipboard Admin. This application runs in the background and copies all clipboard entries into an SQL database for later viewing. But rather than truly integrating  with the OS and letting you directly paste into text fields, users are only able to manually access or export the clippings.

Now through the magic of Xposed Framework, XDA Forum Member DHM47 was able to create a module that integrates with the OS’s native copy/paste functionality. As shown in the image to your right, the additional clipboard functionality is exposed when entering the text selection menu, though you can also access it by long-pressing “Paste” during cursor placement. From here, you are just one tap away from summoning a previous clipboard item. And if you wish to have a better look at one particular item, long-pressing any individual clipboard menu zooms in and exposes its entire contents.

Android’s built in copy/paste functionality is great, but now users running Xposed framework can make it even better. If you’ve ever wanted a more robust copy/paste system on your Android device, simply head over to the module thread to get started.
