Today we are releasing no less than four new features:
- Bulk actions on clips: publish, delete, tag, mention, or add to a board.
- Note taking: make rich text notes and to do lists.
- File drag-and-drop: copy image and text files from your computer in one fell swoop.
- An improved clipper UI: easier on the eyes and one step closer to mind reading.
Since each of these features is worthy of its own dedicated post, we're going to spread out the details over the next few days. This first post is to just call out the features in the aggregate and to share some thoughts about where Clipboard is going next in the context of these changes.
From a perception perspective, note taking and drag-and-drop are, perhaps, the two more notable features because they change what you can clip and where you can clip it. Our goal, above all else, is to give you the best tool that we can for selfishly saving the parts of the Web that you care about. We want to help you pull things into your own personal Web for your own private needs, effectively helping you to shape your own digital identity.
Adding a new note on Clipboard
Clipboard now support drag and drop
A while back, we extended the notion of a clip to include bookmarks, screen grabs, and text snippets. So adding files and notes is just a natural progression for us, as they are also key ingredients to making a compelling clip board.
We've also overhauled the Clipper interaction
So, whatever your motivation for clipping, we think that Clipboard will be more valuable to you for having these latest capabilities. Our little note editor is never going to be a replacement for a word processor, and our file copying should never be a backup solution. However, to the extent that a new clip type enhances your clipping experience, we want to know about it and we want it to be part of your Clipboard tool set.
