[App] Clip Layer

Clip LayerClip Layer : Across different apps, screens, and context on a smartphone, there are snippets of information that a user wants to make use of

However, there are many apps where you just aren’t able to select or copy anything because it’s blocked by the app.

Even in the apps where you can, pressing and holding an area then to drag two ends of the grabbers require much precision. It’s just not as easy as it should be.

Clip Layer, a Microsoft Garage Project, can be launched over any screen so you can select, copy, and act on snippets you care about in simple series of taps.

After selecting a snippet, copy it to clipboard, add it to Wunderlist to have it accessible across different devices, email it, or share it to any other app installed on your phone.

We would love to hear your feedback here!

Clip Layer user reviews :

Great concept. Only issue is it doesn’t work with Opera Mini browser. It scans but doesn’t detect the text regions, etc. Same with UC Mini browser. Must be something to do with how those browsers are rendering text, but that’s the reason I installed this App in the first place. I hope the devs can fix this. Kudos so far.

Fantastic utility Just what I need! Copy of text on phone is otherwise such a chore! Great job Microsoft, keep making refinements to this app. Combined with office lens these two apps are incredible help

I have the Google pixel xl, and i dont want to waste the Google assistant even thought i love this app. Please give the option to trigger it using long press on the back button on a permanent option in the notification shade
