Price: Free, $0.99
Pros & Cons:
- Send copied text in clipboard to Share, Search, Translate, or Modify the text
- Only slight annoyance as the popup window is missing a “Cancel” button, but press phones “Back” for cancel option
Features & Usefulness:
Smart Copy is just that! A convenient and intelligent way to extend the clipboard on your Android smartphone. Once enabled, when you copy text either from “Select Text” feature from Android web browsers, Gmail, or Longpress to “Copy All” or “Cut All” the app pops up a mini window to offer four options on what you would like to do with the clipboard text:
- Share via other apps like email & social apps
- Search Google
- Translate the text from a host of available languages, includes auto-detect language
- Modify the text in the clipboard
Have you ever tried to highlight text from the web browser or email and your thumb is too large get a view of what you’re highlighting so you either get too much or too little text copied, (I guess this is where iPhone pwns with the bubble that appears with highlighting text for more precision selecting) Smart Copy let’s you see the clipboard and modify it.
Best use cases are when you want to copy text and share in another app like email or search on the web, even better when you need to translate from one language to another, or just modify the clipboard text for use.
