Your Android phone or tablet is useful on its own, but sometimes it is just easier to use a computer. Maybe you start taking notes or write something on your phone or tablet, and you decide to continue that task on your computer. In that scenario, you can share clipboard content copied on your mobile device to your computer, and vice versa.
But, even after decades of existence these e-devices still don’t sync with each other at various fronts, which often scuffles users. Copying data from your phone and pasting it on your PC or vice-versa is something we all can benefit from.
Clipboard in smartphones and PCs are a temporary storage area for data that the user wants to cut, copy and paste from one place to another. The feature is a huge beneficiary for a user who wants to write the same multiple times.
That’s what we can call syncing clipboard. It used to be really irritating for me when I have to copy some information, a link address or transfer some text from Phone to computer and vice versa.
Either I have to Re-type it myself or send it as a message to myself on Facebook, which is still uncomfortable as I have to log in to my Facebook account to access it.
And then I found SnapCopy, an easy way to Sync or share clipboard between all your computers and Android devices. It is like creating a Universal Clipboard among all your computers and smartphones.
What can SnapCopy do?
To share clipboard between your Android devices and Computers means, you should be able to:
====> Copy text on One Android Phone/ Tablet and Paste it on another Android device
====> Copy text on your Phone/Tablet and Paste it on your Computer
====> Copy text on your Computer and Paste it on a Phone/Tablet
Though I have used other Clipboard sharing apps like ClipSync, Alt-C, most of them only work in One way i.e., between your Computer and Phone and not between one phone and other.
The other advantage of SnapCopy is that it is available as a chrome extension, so it can be used with Windows, Linux or Mac with Chrome browser. (But you can share text outside Chrome too).
Install SnapCopy on Android Devices
Step 1 ====> Open Google Play Store on your device: Google Play is an official platform for applications for the Android OS. It is the safest and recommended method to install Android apps.
Step 2 ====> Search for SnapCopy: Once you have launched the Play Store app, you will see a search box on the top right corner of your screen. Click on the search box, type “ SnapCopy ” and tap the search button.
Step 3 ====> Install SnapCopy: When you search for it, the SnapCopy described here will appear on the top of the results. Click install next to it to install the software.
