ClipShot Featured

ClipShot is a jailbreak tweak that was just released today. It allows you to save screenshots to your iPhone’s camera roll, clipboard, or both.

If you’re anything like me, and you take tons of screenshots every single day, then ClipShot may be worth investigating. It’s not perfect at this point, as it does have some bugs, but it also shows loads of promise. Take a look at our video walkthrough inside for more information.

ClipShot works by prompting the user with a pop up notification after taking a screenshot. By default, you’re presented with two choices after invoking the screenshot: saving it to the camera roll as usual, or saving it to the device’s clipboard.

Saving screenshots to the clipboard allows you to easily paste the photo without having to go into the photos app. This makes sharing much easier, because you’re sharing directly from the clipboard.


Of course, there’s quite a few options to be configured in ClipShot’s preferences. You have the option of selecting a default action, which is initially set to ask, or you can make all screenshots go directly to the camera roll or clipboard without prompting you.

There’s also a toggle to always copy items to the clipboard regardless of whether or not you have them going to the camera roll. This is where I ran into a bit of an issue, as clipboard toggle doesn’t appear to work like it should in this initial release. Items simply would not save to the clipboard, even though I had the toggle enabled to force clipboard saves.

The remaining options are great tweaks for heavy screenshot takers. You can disable the camera flash effect and shutter sound, and block screenshots from appearing in photo stream, ala Screenshot Dam.

ClipShot is available free of charge on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. As I stated, it has a bug or two, but I’m sure those will be worked out in a future release. For now, I still recommend ClipShot to those who take a lot of screenshots, as it’s a promising tweak, and you can’t beat its free price.

    Aside from the immaturity of posting first and second, this jailbreak tweak is amazing. I’m always taking screenshots, and with this it won’t save to the photo app and then relaunch messages in order to attach a pic from there. I can easily take a screenshot and attach it to a message using paste. Genius.

      i just did it because i felt the need to fulfill the empty pit in my stomach by drawing attention to my self by achieving self-declared superiority in numerical values to people I don’t know.

      Tinybar on cydia.

  • By the way, why aren’t iOS putting screenshots in their own album already? Is there a tweak for that?

    • You don’t need to jailbreak for that.
      Use the IFTTT app and search for a recipe called “save iOS screenshots to album”

      Delete your pirated source… “xsellize”

      • Mohamed Hassabo

        I dont have any pirated sources?

      • ErickMatheus

        Hi, this error occurs because you have many sources added. Remove some source to Cydia return to work.

        Sorry for bad english, im brazilian.

      • Mohamed Hassabo

        Thank you, it worked!

  • Toon

    it dasn’t paste to note app ??

  • Osama Muhammed

    There was an iOS6 tweak that lets me crop specific part of the screen during screenshot. I hope we see it back in iOS7

  • lemonhead

    this tweak would be even better, if a screenshot was always saved in a certain folder ‘screenshots’ so if you don’t need them anymore you could easly just empty the ‘screenshot’ folder…

    also a whatsapp folder which works just like that would be really handy!

    Installing this automatically uninstalls Screenshot Dam. Reading closer, I realize you don’t need both, but I like that it recognizes the redundancy and keeps me from having superfluous/contradicting tweaks 🙂

  • Ben

    Whew! Cool. Does it still add the image to photo album if you add it to clipboard?

  • Nicki Croisdale

    Does anyone know why it removes Couria the quick reply tweak when installing clipshot?
