Sometimes you want to copy text from an app or image and you cannot use the default Android long press? Universal Copy takes that pain away! In any app, activate the Universal Copy mode and select the text you want to copy, that’s it!
Copy text from any application: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Tumblr, News Republic, Snapchat…
With the Scanner mode, you can even copy text (latin characters only) from pictures, documents or any app where the developer blocked the normal mode (facebook lite…).
Easy. Simple. Super fast.
Universal Copy allows you to copy text without the need to use the long tap action.

In-app contents: Universal Copy Plus
We believe that everyone should be able to copy in any app. That’s why we decided to make both Normal and Scanner Mode free for everyone. Ads suck, but that’s the only way for our team to keep on improving Universal Copy for you.
Universal Copy Plus removes ads and shows us your support.
