Clip Layer

December 18, 2016

Clip Layer, this new app from Microsoft’s Garage team lets you copy text from any screen by long pressing the home button – including ones that don’t allow selection – and paste it in any third-party app of your choice.


How it works: You need to long-press the home button to launch the Microsoft Clip Layer app anywhere on the screen. The app will then read the text available on the screen. You simply need to select the text you want to capture, and then press the text button positioned in the upper right corner of the screen. This copies the text on your phone’s clipboard. Thereafter, you can do whatever you wish to do with the text at your disposal.


Note: Normally, long pressing the home button launched the Google app to help the users. However, once you install Clip Layer app, the home button will launch Clip Layer. In some phones, you have to trade-off between Clip Layer and screen search. So, the choice is yours!
