Clearboard with Background Clearing

We just released Cleardboard version 1.2. Besides updating the app to iOS 7 design, we include the exciting feature of Background Clearing. With this feature, Clearboard is able to clear the content of your clipboard without even you launching the app.

So how do we make this possible? Thanks for iOS 7's Background App Refresh, we are able to let Clearboard running in the background with very little use of battery power. iOS 7 will monitor your use of the device and launch the app accordingly. Throughout our two months extensive testing, we found Clearboard could clear the clipboard as often as every five minutes. When your device is in the sleep mode (for example, at night) Clearboard will not be running at all, hence the minimum usage of battery.

Background Clear Testing Sample

I hope you like this new feature, we are very excited about releasing it after our lengthy testing. Let us know what do you think. 

To enable to Background Clearing, please refer to our FAQ.

We have done particularly well In Japan,  On Sunday March 17, we were top 117 in the productivity category. Thanks so much for all the support. If you like our app, please spread the word.

For the past two days, we've seen many downloads of Clearboard from Japan. We would like to thank our Japanese fans for their support. Please tell your friends and family about us. In this crowded app market, the word of mouth is the only tool that independent app developer can have to compete against the big software company. Your support means a lot to us!  

どうもありがとう!

Thanks For The Feedback

Thanks Obis11 for the review and the kind words of Clearboard in the App Store.

"As far as basic concepts go, Clearboard is very basic, but the simplicity is useful in that it does what it needs to in a predictable and logical way. The animations are quite nice too, however I'm not exactly sure I really need to even wait 3 seconds to clear the clipboard. No fault to the app though, just a preference of mine. I'm extremely pleased with Clearboard, enough so that I'm considering buy the addons. I suggest that everyone install Clearboard and run it daily."

We will take your comments into consideration for the future enhancement.

Currently, there is a "Sudden Death" style included in the In-App Purchase pack. It will clear the clipboard without any countdown. But obviously in this style you will not see the animation that we love so much.
