Paprika reads the system clipboard in order to implement the following features:
1. If you have the Detect Clipboard URLs setting enabled, Paprika will check the clipboard when the app is opened to see if you have a recipe link copied to your clipboard. If you do, it gives you the option to load the link into Paprika's browser. Note: you can disable this feature by turning off Detect Clipboard URLs in Paprika's settings pane.
2. Paprika's browser reads the clipboard text when you use the clipboard tools to manually clip a recipe from a website.
3. When adding photos to a recipe, Paprika checks to see if you have a photo copied to the clipboard. If so, it gives you an option to paste that photo into the current recipe.
Note for iOS 16 (and later)
In certain versions of iOS (16 and later) Apple has introduced a new privacy feature where the system will automatically prompt you for permission whenever any app attempts to read from the clipboard. If you find this prompt annoying you can set Paprika to permanently allow pasting from other apps under iOS Settings -> Paprika 3 -> Paste from Other Apps -> Allow.
