Universal Copy is the fastest way to copy text on Android, even from the apps that won’t let you or inside images.
In any app, launch Universal Copy, select the text you want to copy, it’s done!
Easy. Simple. Super fast.
- Normal mode: copy text from any application such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Chrome, WhatsApp, Tumblr, News Republic, Snapchat...
- Scanner mode: copy text inside images (OCR technology). It currently works with Chinese, Devanagari (Hindi...), Japanese, Korean and Latin (English, Portuguese...) character sets.
- Smart detection of entities: addresses, emails, phone numbers, @, #... are automatically detected by Universal Copy.
- Copy-Paste in 1-tap: perform quick actions (translate, locate, share…) on the text you selected. This saves a lot of app switching.
- Scroll mode: select texts from multiple screens or apps to copy them all.
- Harvest mode: launch Harvest mode and capture all entities that you encounter while you navigate.

HOW TO SET IT UP?
