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 OCR mode (available in Universal Copy Plus), you can even copy text (latin characters only) from images 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.
