After news broke that Facebook Messenger and Lite scraped call logs and text history from Android devices, the social network stressed that it didn't do so in secret and with an ulterior motive. It got access to those data due to Android's wonky perm…

Trust in Facebook is very likely at an all-time low due to recent events. And a new report about how the company’s own app logs data isn’t likely to help. Over the past week, several Android users discovered that Facebook had collected and saved extensive call data. That data included call type, contact names, phone […]
If you've been using the Facebook app on Android for quite some time, it's possible that the social network has records of every call and text you made these past years — though it's not as bad as it sounds. It was software developer Dylan McKay who…

I’m pretty much deep into Apple ecosystem and almost always surrounded by iOS and macOS. However, there are times when I have to encounter Android and Windows PC. And, that’s when I begin to crave for a seamless experience across all platforms. Thankfully, there are quite a few handy apps that allow you to copy/paste from iPhone/iPad to Mac/Windows PC/Android or vice-versa—without costing an arm and a leg!
If you are using iOS 10 or later and macOS Sierra or later, you can copy/paste between your iPhone/iPad and Mac seamlessly. But what if your devices are not compatible with these operating systems? No problem, you can take the advantage of the below-mentioned apps to overcome the hurdle. If you are using Android/Windows and wish to mingle with Mac and iPhone, these apps can let you get across the line with consummate ease! Ready to try them out? Here you go!
How to Copy/Paste Text from iPhone or iPad to Mac, PC, Android, and Vice Versa
Pasteasy is simply the best copy-paste tool. What stands this app apart from the rest is the wide compatibility. You can use this app on your iOS, Android, Mac and Windows PC.
Another notable aspect of this app is the lightning fast functionality. The app lets you copy and paste not just text but also images. Ensure that you have iOS 7 or later, Android 4.0 or later, macOS 10.9 or later, Windows XP/Vista 7/8 or later.
Price: Free (iOS and macOS apps are priced at $ 2.99)
CloudClip works very similar to Command-C but with one huge difference: it relies on iCloud. The gateway is the CloudClip iOS app. Here’s how it works:
When you copy text on the Mac, it gets sent to iCloud. After copying text, open CloudClip on your iPhone and the copied text is shown in a list. You can copy the text now and use it anywhere else on the iPhone.
If you copy text on iPhone to paste in the Mac, you have to open CloudClip on iPhone to have the copied text pushed to iCloud. Once this is done, the copied text is available from the menu bar icon for CloudClip.
Although it is not necessary that both the devices remain on the same network, it doesn’t make much of a difference. You’ll need to enable iCloud on both the devices.
Scribe uses the same philosophy of technique but replaces Wi-Fi or iCloud with Bluetooth LE. The benefit of using Bluetooth LE is that it saves power and the disadvantage is that it’s one-to-one (you can use one iPhone to one Mac). Fantastically, you don’t have internet connectivity when you are just copy-pasting between the two devices.
With Scribe, the connectivity and transfer is instantaneous too. But it’s not as ubiquitous as Command-C. Also, since it relies on Bluetooth LE, iPhone 4 and lower aren’t supported.
Although not exactly a favorite alternative, MyPhoneDesktop finds mentions in reputed blogs. MyPhoneDesktop supports Windows PCs and Linux systems besides Mac. But it’s actually an overkill for just copy-paste. There’s a lot more that MyPhoneDesktop can do (like making a call on your iPhone but triggered from your desktop, sending files, sending SMS from Mac, etc.
And it’s a little complicated/sophisticated.
Price: $ 4.99
I have found ClipSync pretty neat in terms of functionality. This tool is designed to work with Windows PC and Android devices.
You have to install “ClipSync Server” on your computer and mobile device. When you copy text on your computer, it automatically sends the copied text to the clipboard of all your android devices on the same LAN over WIFI. Simply long press a text input field and paste from the default context menu.
Likewise, when you copy text on your mobile device, it will automatically update your Windows clipboard as well as the clipboard of all other Android devices connected to the same LAN.
#6. Clipbrd Beta
Clipbrd Beta is a highly effective app that lets you bridge the gap between your Mac, Windows PC, and Android device. To get started, you have to add Clipbrd Beta extension to your Chrome on your computer and download its Android app on your smartphone.
Once you have set your devices, you can easily copy/paste text. It’s a lightweight app and offers the needed safeguard to your privacy.
ALT-C works flawlessly in letting you copy and paste between your Android and Windows PC/Mac. To start things off, you have to install the app both on your computer and the mobile device.
It uses Google Cloud Messaging with SSL connections to get your work done. You can also customize this app to open specific types of text in various applications. Besides,
ALT-C is compatible with Windows 7 or later, macOS 10.9 or later and Android 4.0 or later.
ShareMouse is primed for Mac and Windows PC, allowing you to copy/paste between them with the desired convenience. The app supports formatted text, bitmaps, files and folders containing multiple files. It also offers AES encryption for secure network data transmission.
Ensure that your computer is running Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 and/or Apple macOS 10.7. Besides, your devices must be near and connected to the same local network.

Google Lens has been rolling out for the past months to both the Photos app and the Assistant, but the device availability and featureset of the option have been different between the two. It looks like we’re moving to some semblance of parity though, as the Assistant version of Google Lens is now capable of selecting text, just like the Photos version could starting last December.
Previously, when you tapped on text in the viewfinder of Lens, it would recognize some of the text and give you relevant answers, but wouldn’t let you specifically select which part of the text you wanted to search for.
You can now select text in Google Lens in Assistant was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
